dEar Leader sent me an e-mail today.

John –

John Galt that is…

As we head into the final stretch on health reform, big insurance company lobbyists and their partisan allies hope that their relentless attacks and millions of dollars can intimidate us into accepting the status quo.

So I have a message for them, from all of us: Not this time. We have come too far. We will not turn back. We will not back down.

But do not doubt — the opponents of reform will not rest. So I need you to fight alongside me.

We must continue to build out our campaign — to spread the facts on the air and on the ground, and to bring in more volunteers and train them to join the fight. I urgently need your help to keep this 50-state movement for reform going strong.

Let’s win this together,

President Barack Hussein Pashsa Obama, Your Glorious Leader

With just a few minor modifications, namely replacing references to the eeeevil Rethuglicans with the Jihadis, and the health care abortion with the war, that’s what we should have heard at West Point. Maybe then the Cadets would have stayed awake.

Give us more, O Emperor! »

So finally, after much careful deliberation and consultation with his crack team of military experts, our Dear and Glorious Leader has delivered his Chuchillian masterpiece speech outlining our grand strategy that will lead us to victory in The Long War.

Uhm, well, maybe not so much. Instead we were treated to a confusing mish mosh of how vitally important the battle in Afghanistan is versus the fact that we can’t afford it and it’s not worth the effort. Between his disgraceful use of the speech to defend his own procrastination and indecisiveness on the issue, thinly veiled swipes at George W. Bush, and his narcissistic self congratulations, was a half hearted acknowledgement that the war is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. But rather than committing our nation to winning the war, he squandered the opportunity to rally the nation and instead announced a meager and timid course of action. Rather than laying out a firm definition of what we are trying to accomplish, he restated his vague intentions of  “disrupting, dismantling, and defeating Al-Qaeda”. These are tactical goals against an identified single player in what has been, and is rightfully still, a grand war against an ideology and it’s savage adherents. He has reduced the overall war against Islamofacism to a narrow battle against two minor groups of fighters in a single geographic location. While completely missing the overall strategic picture in it’s entirety, Obama’s war has become a fight against only the Taliban and Al Qaeda, the latter who have no more than 100 or so fighters in the theater.

The most damning part of Obama’s strategy however is that he has given the military 18 months to accomplish their mission. While paying lip service to “conditions on the ground”, he said that the U.S. will begin a withdrawal in July of 2011. He gave the enemy the moral impetus they need to persevere against the very troops he is sending to defeat them. While on paper they have 18 months, in reality they have 4. Afghanistan does not have any road infrastructure or seaports that will allow for the easy deployment of our combat brigades. It will take at least 7 months to get the troops in place, probably longer. Although wisely the initial deployments will take place during the winter season when the enemy traditionally goes to ground, and extend through the spring and summer offensive season of 2010, they will not be completed until the following winter. Once the spring 2011 offensive season begins in roughly March, they will have only 4 months to accomplish their goals before the withdrawal begins. That is not enough time for a population centric COIN strategy to take hold and bear fruit. The Surge in Iraq was roughly a full 13 months of effort. Obama expects our military to do the same thing in a far harsher environment, with a total commitment of fewer troops, in 1/3 the time. He has set them up for failure, and announced the fact to the entire world, including our enemies in both Afghanistan and elsewhere.

And it’s the elsewhere which is the most troubling, because it has been ignored. Obama himself stated that Al Qaeda and the Taliban are no longer a serious threat either to CONUS or to the government of Afghanistan, yet it is they and they alone that his strategy will focus on. Meanwhile, the architects and spiritual fathers of the Islamofacist movement, the Mullahs in Iran, are free to continue spreading the Khomeni Islamist Revolution and pursuing nuclear weapons.

In other words, last night the President of the United States announced our surrender to the forces of Islamic Radicalism.

Dear Leader has finally figured out he can’t vote “present” on this one (from They Who Must Not Be Linked™.)

WASHINGTON – After months of debate, dithering (fixed it for ya- crunch) President Barack Obama will spell out a costly Afghanistan war expansion to a skeptical public Tuesday night, coupling an infusion of as many as 35,000 more troops with a vow that there will be no endless U.S. commitment. His first orders have already been made: at least one group of Marines who will be in place by Christmas.

Merry Christmas you bastards. (USMC= U Suckers Missed Christmas). Have to give Obama half credit on this one, at least he agreed to most of what Gen. McChrystal had requested. I would have gladly congratulated him and even praised him if he hadn’t felt the need to throw in the prerequisite caveat about “ending” the war. He just can’t bring himself to be an actual leader and say and do what’s necessary to actually win the fucking war. No, instead he has to take what could have been a resounding moment of moral strength and destroy it by throwing a bone to his leftist base. Well, close Bambi, real close. I was about to make a lot of peoples heads explode by complimenting you.

Obama has said that he prefers “not to hand off anything to the next president”

Already looking at 2012 are we?

and that his strategy will “put us on a path toward ending the war.”

Would your universe implode if you were to just once in your wretched, cursed, Presidency, use the word “victory”? Let me clue ya in on something; wars don’t “end”, they are won or lost. Your choice, pick one.

Before Obama’s call to Britain’s Gordon Brown, the prime minister announced that 500 more U.K. troops would arrive in southern Afghanistan next month — making a British total of about 10,000 in the country. And French President Nicolas Sarkozy, whose nation has more than 3,000 in Afghanistan, said French troops would stay “as long as necessary” to stabilize the country.

Do you hear that Bambi? The Fwench *minor spit* are more committed to victory than you are! Do you realize how bad that is? Do you have any fucking clue how far down you have dragged the greatest nation on the Earth when the Fwench have more balls than you do? Breaking news; Chesty Puller is digging his way out of his grave so he can kick you square in the nuts.

Obama’s war escalation includes sending 30,000 to 35,000 more American forces into Afghanistan in a graduated deployment over the next year, on top of the 71,000 already there.

Spend our grandchildren into economic serfdom, destroy the greatest health care system the world has ever known, usurp the Constitution by appointing unaccountable czars to control every facet of our lives, bow and scrape before monarchs, belittle and denigrate our nation, all have to done NOW, THERE IS NO TIME! IT’S A CRISIS! Make the effort to save western civilization and defeat the Isamofascists bent on our destruction, take your time, no rush. News flash for ya Ear Leader, wars aren’t won with graduated deployments. They are won through bold and decisive actions. You may need to find a dictionary to look up the meaning of those words when used in a context other than advancing a radical socialist agenda.

He also will deliver a deeper explanation of why he believes the U.S. must continue to fight more than eight years after the war was started following the Sept. 11 attacks by al-Qaida terrorists based in Afghanistan.

Because we have to score a decisive victory against the forces of evil?

He will emphasize that Afghan security forces need more time, more schooling and more U.S. combat backup to be up to the job on their own, (There also will be a fresh focus on training Afghan forces to take over the fight and allow the Americans to leave. - ibid)  and he will make tougher demands on the governments of Pakistan as well as Afghanistan.

Damn, had my hopes up there for a minute. Nope, instead of the decisive victory we need, the troop increase is seen as only a means to our eventual withdrawal, not our eventual victory. So instead of a rousing justification and Churchillian call to victory that a “war weary” nation needs, his speech will be yet another tepid, milquetoast promise of a gradual defeat and a chance to once again insult and belittle our allies.

On a few of the bigger questions most on the minds of increasingly restive members of Congress and the public, such as how much the additional $30 billion to $35 billion cost will balloon the already skyrocketed federal deficit, how long the U.S. commitment will continue and how it will wind down, Obama was expected to make references without offering specifics.

Because that would once again call for a decisive stand on the issue, something he is genetically incapable of. Let me answer those questions for ya Hussein. The $30-35 billion is an expenditure required to meet the federal government’s Constitutionally mandated obligation to provide for the common defense. It will not balloon the skyrocketing federal deficit because effective immediately all federal expenditures not expressly authorized by the Constitution of the United States are hereby ended. The resulting budgetary surplus will be spent on winning the Long War, and once and forever obliterating the threat of radical Islam. All surplus revenues will be immediately returned to the people of the United States in the form of a permanent tax cut to a flat 5% of income, until such time as the 16th Amendment can be repealed. The U.S. commitment will continue until victory is achieved and will “wind down” with a victory parade conducted on a road constructed with the skulls of our vanquished enemy. Hows them for some specifics?

The president’s review was anchored by 10 extensive war council meetings, starting on Sept. 13, that featured a debate between a counterinsurgency strategy focused on protecting the local population and building up the Afghanistan government or a more limited counterterrorism strategy Joe Bidens sooper secret soooper special magical Ninja strategy.

The former was referred to as “The Surge” when we actually had an administration that knew how to fight a war. The latter is only one minor step above sending the FBI in to Nuristan to arrest the Taliban.

The final product is neither, though it leans more toward counterinsurgency.

Almost there Bambi, but not quite.

The length of the process drew sharp barbs. Less than two months in, Vice President Dick Cheney accused Obama of “dithering,” beginning a drumbeat of criticism from Republicans. The White House shot back that the administration Cheney helped lead had given inordinate attention to Iraq while turning its back on Afghanistan.

You own this issue now Bambi, you can’t blame Bush forever. Quick strategy primer for you. We focused on Iraq because it was an easier theater to fight the hirabi in, and because Iraq was the key to Iran, the true center of gravity in this war. Iran was a present that was handed to you on a silver platter by seven years of the blood sweat and toil of men far superior to anything you could ever even aspire to be. A gift which you squandered when you preferred to once again vote “present” and “bear witness” to the savage repression of the aspiring democracy activists we have cultivated for so long. You “bore witness” rather than giving the Iranians the real support, material or moral, they needed to overthrow the Mullah’s. Now we are no closer to toppling the Khomenist Regime in Tehran than we were in 1979. Yep, that’s some powerful change you foisted on us you mulim fellating cocksucker.

In recent days, leading Democrats have talked of setting tough conditions on deeper U.S. involvement, or even staging outright opposition.

The Fifth Column scum resorting to type, ensuring that there will be no chance of an American victory in yet another war.

Obama spent much of Monday and Tuesday on the phone, outlining his plan — minus many specifics — for the leaders of France, Britain, Germany, Russia, China, India, Denmark, Poland and others.

Still in campaign mode. Vague platitudes, no hard policies or details. Probably for the best. Any discussion of details would show how totally clue bereft he is.

A briefing for dozens of lawmakers was planned for Tuesday afternoon, just before Obama left for New York to give his speech against a military backdrop photo-op.

*Heavy sigh*. Somethings never change. The men and institutions which adopt the warrior ethos so that others may live in peace is nothing more than so much stage dressing to the Immaculate One™.

So close. I so badly wished that I would be able to sing Teh Ones™ praises and give him a hearty pat on the back for finally doing something worthy of his Oval Office predecessors. But alas, it is not to be.

Well, at least it’s nice to know that there are still some constants in the Age of Obama.

How many of y’all watched “V” on ABC  Tuesday? How many of you remember the original TV mini-series “V”? I had watched the original and loved the allegories to the resistance against the Nazi’s in WWII, as well as seeing citizens resist tyranny. That’s why I was pumped about the remake, although a little surprised, even suspicious, that one of Obama’s loyal lap dogs would be running a mini series that obviously takes some not so subtle swipes at the Cult of Teh One™.

Seems I’m not the only one.

Imagine this. At a time of political turmoil, a charismatic, telegenic new leader arrives virtually out of nowhere. He offers a message of hope and reconciliation based on compromise and promises to marshal technology for a better future that will include universal health care.

The news media swoons in admiration — one simpering anchorman even shouts at a reporter who asks a tough question: “Why don’t you show some respect?!” The public is likewise smitten, except for a few nut cases who circulate batty rumors on the Internet about the leader’s origins and intentions. The leader, undismayed, offers assurances that are soothing, if also just a tiny bit condescending: “Embracing change is never easy.”

Pretty obvious who that’s aimed at, ain’t it?

So, does that sound like anyone you know? Oh, wait — did I mention the leader is secretly a totalitarian space lizard who’s come here to eat us?

And yer point is…? Still ain’t that far of a stretch.

Welcome to ABC’s “V,” the most fascinating and bound to be the most controversial new show of the fall television season. Nominally a rousing sci-fi space opera about alien invaders bent on the conquest (and digestion) of all humanity, it’s also a barbed commentary on Obamamania that will infuriate the president’s supporters and delight his detractors.

Which is why I’m already hooked :-)

There truly are some very pointed jabs at Teh Cult, liberally sprinkled(pun intended) throughout the story of the world’s willing descent into Fascism . If the rest of the series is as good as the first episode, then my dear friends my dance card for Tuesday nights is full for awhile.
