Can the King of Peace now Find the Will to Win the War in Afghanistan?

Updated on October 11, 2009

With one outlandish proclamation, these modern day Vikings wreaked more havoc on the poor unsuspecting people of Afghanistan than their prolific seafaring ancestors did on the Europeans centuries earlier as they sailed the coastline pillaging and plundering while establishing Viking settlements! How now can this newly crowned King of Peace find the courage necessary to defy his political base and launch the surge in Afghanistan necessary to stabilize the country and retake control of it from the Taliban and Alkieda? In doing nothing he effectively allows the country to lapse back under the control of these radical elements condemning to death hundreds of thousands and once again extinguishing the light of freedom momentarily illuminated for women in that region.

Make no mistake about it; this was an intentional act by those that wish to further emasculate the United States of America. They love a weakened, neutered U.S, and our Fearless Leader has emboldened this group lately by his continued criticism of his own country. Remember his recent speech in which he referred to the United States as Arrogant, Divisive and even Derisive! Yes with this award, the lefties of the world will persuade our King to abandon Afghanistan the same way earlier lefties Jane Fonda, Walter Cronkite and the likes forced us out of Viet Nam 40 some years ago. Just as Pol Pot and Ho Chi Minh slaughtered hundreds of thousands in the aftermath of our Viet Nam abandonment so now will Ansar al-Sunna (Alkieda leader in Afghanistan) and Mullah Mohammed Omar (Taliban founder) follow suit in this region! The world is learning that there is a price to pay for trusting America as Democrats regain power!

The Nobel Peace Prize Committee has done what thousands of "suicide bombers" have been unable to do, push America into a corner from which it will refuse to emerge. How else can you explain the absurdity of this selection? George Bush liberates 50 million Muslims in Iraq while Ronald Reagan liberates hundreds of millions of Europeans; where were their awards?” Yet Obama who gives speeches trashing his own country; Jimmy Carter who’s Israeli Palestinian Peace Accord has never worked and Al Gore who made a movie and lead the anti-global warming crusade all were recipients! Thus this group loves American Presidents that espouse Platitudes while effectively doing nothing to improve the lives of millions of oppressed people throughout the world and ignores those that actually accomplish something to improve the course of human existence!

So now how does Obama commit to the surge in Afghanistan or take action against Iran and its nuclear program? The Nobel committee's decision to award the Peace Prize to an unproven American president makes these obvious decision appear as insurmountable obstacles. Does he do the right thing and risk alienating the progressive international committee as well as his left wing base which is primarily responsible for his election, or does he acquiesce to their wishes and place not only America but the entire world at risk? Knowing our newly crowned king as I do I’m sure he will opt to do the wrong thing!

So how is this Obamination being received throughout the legitimate media world, the U.K. Telegraph reported on Friday; "Mr. Obama has no concrete achievement to his credit!" Even Time magazine predicted; “the president would find a graceful way to back out of accepting the award given his lack of accomplishments. And Joe Scarborough the hosts of The Morning Joe program said "Barack Obama has been criticized for being just about words, just rhetoric. He seems to have won one of the most prestigious awards in the world for just rhetoric."

The real problem is the progressives who pass out these accolades believe America is the problem in the world, the main threat to peace and this award is a symbolic statement of their opposition to American exceptionalism! Most observers agree that the award has grown steadily more politicized since the end of the Vietnam War passing up such notable honorees as Pope John Paul II; who liberated Eastern Europe from the boot of Soviet imperialism, and former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher! Yet Obama, by contrast, was nominated for the award just 12 days after assuming office!

      You and I are on the same page. I believe you fight a war to win and unfortunately that means accepting a certain amount of “Collateral Damage”!

      Patriot,

      I'm not saying ignore them. I'm just saying that we must stay focussed. I may sound calus, but I don't care about women's rights in Afghanistan or Iraq. What I care about is dead terrorist. Occupying Afghanistan/Iraq does nothing other than provide easy targets. The US Forces are NOT set up for post cold war operations. Continuing to fight non conventional wars via conventional means will result in less than acceptable results.

      Unlike you and C.J., you and I will never be in agreement on anything. But, I do respect YOUR RIGHT TO BE WRONG!

      I appreciate your views on the Socialization of the American economy but like Pat Buchannan; someone I admired in a previous life, you can’t build a fence to keep the bad guys out. Unfortunately the world developed ways to fly over the fence years ago.

      If we pull out an let Alkieda have Afghanistan once again, how long do you think it will take for them to launch another 911 style attack; this time with nuclear weapons.

      You couldn’t be more correct when you pointed out the 800 Billion at risk; the culture of entitlement spreading like swine flu; a new culture that now admires dictators and marginalizes freedom fighters and a culture that laughs at history's warnings. But, using your own words we laughed at the warning Mogadishu should have given; the first World Trade Center Bombing; the attack on the USS Cole; the Marine Barracks Bombing! No sir, these terrorist will not go away and if we do not defeat them our economy which you so appropriately defend will not recover from another 911!

      C.J. Wright, we are in agreement on Afghanistan.

      this is going to sound bad.....ok here it goes.

      At some point America has got to realize that the days of sewing the seeds of democracy, policing the world and propping up foriegn governments are over. We have done this over and over since the end of WWII. What have we gained? I dare say that while we were landscaping the neighbors yard, the weeds of tyrany have overrun our own.

      Its sad. People will die in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Yes, they will die because we interfered. We interfered, and those natives that supported us will suffer. When we leave some dictator will fill the vaccuum. We went over there with the best of intentions, misguided intentions. Our target was or at least should have been rooting out those members affiliated with Al Queda. Some how it got turned into nation building and liberating. While all these well intentioned efforts were afoot abroad. A radical group has set fire to the economy. Its a small group, but with the composition of the current congress thats all it took. Some members of congress have even unknowingly been fanning the flames.

      Folks we have serious issues. We have nearly 800 Billion at risk. We have a culture of entitlement spreading like swine flu. We have a culture that laughs at history's warnings. We have a culture that admires dictators and marginalizes freedom fighters. No ladies and gentlemen the fight for freedom is not abroad any longer it is at home. Its time to start re-sewing the seeds of democracy in America.

      Ready

      Unfortunately this time the phrase “Dead Right” applies. Because of this new Paper Tiger Commander and Chief a lot of innocent people will die and God Forbid, the probability of 911 Part II just increased exponentially!

      Partisan,

      Man, I hate it when we're right all the time.

      Thanks Ready

      This award was given as a reward for his Emasculation Proclamation speeches; the series of speeches he recently gave Apologizing for America’s Arrogance, as well as being Dismissive and Derisive! They ate those speeches up. Collectively to entire Liberal World had a Chris Mathews “Tingly Leg Experience”!

      If you’re waiting for a show of strength from our newly crowned King; in a word, “It-Ain’t-Happening (excuse the vernacular)! Iranian will continue to laugh at him while testing missile after missile until Israel takes them out. Afghanistan will fall back into Taliban hands because of his procrastination and Pakistan like Viet Nam will learn the lesson of trusting America!

      Great Hub. The progressives are getting so tiresome in their purely political conniving, and this “award” was just that, a political maneuver in which we are to be awed by the anointed one. Well, at least they found something Jimmy Carter could do for the machine. Perhaps this guy may earn one in the future, but he will have to do it from a place of strength not appeasement, elimination of the Iranian nuclear ambition comes to mind.

      The choices of action in Afghanistan are clear, defeat the enemy or withdrawal. The latter leaves the Afghans and Pakistanis to fend off the Taliban and Al Qaeda, emboldens the reigning Iranian regime and exposes Pakistan’s nuclear armaments to an exceedingly violent enemy sworn to destroy the free world.

      Patriot, nice hub and I want to say maybe, well no maybe about it, we put too much into awards given to individuals by individuals who have common interests. It is not crapola it is cronyism! Mr deeds is on the wrong side of America but at least he can read, while his response is exactly what you can expect from a lefty who claims to be a centrist. Deeds you have a left arm, a right arm anything in between? Nope, so that leaves you with nothing! I think this Nobel Prize was covered in my hub from 2-3 weeks back when I pointed out that Woodrow Wilson received the award while President and I suggest you read that hub no link but

      title Obama, arrogant or self righteous

      I was reading thru some of the bills in Congress, and found one where they refuse to fund any more troops in Afganistan. 22 Congressman/woman have already signed it. Will be following to see where it goes.

      Wow Ralph; how verbose you are! Does Crapola come in bars or cereal boxes? Either way it sounds dry so make sure you drink plenty of Kool Aid to wash it down!

      Unfortunately those sitting ON HIS LEFT at the table broke his Military Plate immediately following his fraudulent election which ACORN stole for him! Now he has none to step up to nor sit down at. He’s left with a Giant Bowl of Appeasement Stew in front of him!

      Great hub, Patriot,

      Obama is clearly not a patriot. Since taking office he has belittled and humbled the U.S before the world. The longer he waits to give the General what he needs to persevere in Afghanistan, the more young men and women will die. He needs to step up tho the plate.
