Barack's Big Muddy?

“This is not a war of choice," President Obama has stated. “This is a war of necessity. Those who attacked America on 9/11 are plotting to do so again. If left unchecked, the Taliban insurgency will mean an even larger safe haven from which Al Qaeda would plot to kill more Americans.”

Now, military commanders with the NATO have told Obama's chief envoy to the Afghanistan that they did not have enough troops to do their job.

What will Barack's reponse be? Will he keep the troop levels the same, increase them or withdraw?

If he keeps levels the same and we continue to suffer losses with no reasonable hope of turning the tide will the press vilify him as they did Bush? If he increases levels will the insane leftists once again run amok like they did during the last administration?

Is there a chance Barack will pull us out of the conflict despite his own words describing it as a "war of necessity." He's waffled on other issues he previously had called critical, why should this be any different. Watch for some aide, czar or secretary to suggest a pullout so Barack can gauge the public reaction.

Unlike our previous president who did what he thought was best for America, Obama will do what he thinks is best for Barack. To paraphrase his pastor, America be damned.
