Sarah Palin To Barack Obama: We Must Win In Afghanistan!

Late this afternoon Sarah Palin issued this statement urging Barack Obama to get his act together on the war in Afghanistan:

We Must Win in Afghanistan

Today at 4:57pm

For two years as a candidate, Senator Obama called for more resources for the war in Afghanistan and warned about the consequences of failure. As President, he announced a comprehensive new counterinsurgency strategy and handpicked the right general to execute it. Now General McChrystal is asking for additional troops to implement the strategy announced by President Obama in March. Hundreds of thousands of Americans have sons, daughters, fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers in harm’s way in Afghanistan right now. We owe it to all those brave Americans serving in uniform to give them the tools they need to complete their mission.

We can win in Afghanistan by helping the Afghans build a stable representative state able to defend itself. And we must do what it takes to prevail. The stakes are very high. The 9/11 attacks were planned in Afghanistan, and if we are not successful there, al Qaeda will once again find a safe haven, the Taliban will impose its cruelty on the Afghan people, and Pakistan will be less stable.

Our allies and our adversaries are watching to see if we have the staying power to protect our interests in Afghanistan. I recently joined a group of Americans in urging President Obama to devote the resources necessary in Afghanistan and pledged to support him if he made the right decision. Now is not the time for cold feet, second thoughts, or indecision — it is the time to act as commander-in-chief and approve the troops so clearly needed in Afghanistan.

Short, sweet, and to the point. These are the times that test the metal of a man. (or woman) We have brave man and women in harms way. We are losing these brave souls because their Commander-in-Chief is a weak leader with absolutely zero executive experience. Well, Mr President, this is not the U.S. Senate, and you cannot vote “present” here!

We cannot lose this war. The entire world already sees Obama is an incredibly weak leader. Friends and foes alike are openly laughing at Obama. Even the French! Every signal Obama sends to the world says weakness.

This is an administration that can’t bring itself to call these devils “terrorists,” for God’s sake! This is an administration that has dropped the “war on terror” terminology. We can no longer call attacks “acts of terrorism” they are “man made disasters.” This is an administration that is now reading captured terrorists Miranda rights like they were arrested at Wal-Mart shoplifting!

As we wrote earlier, Obama is even embarrassed to use the word “victory!”

We have even learned that Obama had only spoken to his Commanding General once in 70 days!

We have men dying in battle, and yet, Obama has only talked to his HAND PICKED Commanding General in the field once before last week! And that was during Obama’s mission for his Chicago buddies to Copenhagen.

That’s right, we have multiple domestic problems, sky high unemployment, a failed $1 trillion “stimulus package”, the world wants to drop the dollar as the standard currency, and we are fighting two wars, and yet, Obama has time to spend, and well over a million taxpayer dollars, to not only ship the First Lady and the Oprah over to Copenhagen, but take a second plane over for himself, with Chuck Schumer, and a host of Chicago hopefuls to further embarrass America on the world stage. Obama’s “look at me” dog and pony show was just pathetic, and maybe the only transparent thing he has done since taking office!

I mean even a blind man could see this was nothing more than Obama trying to bring in a bunch of money to line the pockets of his corrupt Chicago friends. This thing would have seen corruption on a biblical scale!

But, Obama, our great “Commander-in-Chief” was gracious enough to find a whole twenty-five minutes to speak with General McChrystal on the trip back. How nice.

Obama is working night and day, using every resource available to the White House in order to pass his unconstitutional ObamaCare fiasco, something that America has loudly rejected as a whole. But is dragging his feet on something that is actually important to the nation, and the rest of the world.

Now we all know why Obama wants ObamaCare. It totally usurps the Constitution, totally destroys states’ rights, and goes a long way toward setting up an all powerful centralized government. A communist state. This has been the left’s dream since before FDR!

Americans do not want this, they want Obama and Congress to stop the nonsense, throw the entire thing in the trash, and start over, using common sense.

America also wants to win these wars!

Let’s forget, for a moment, what a loss would do to the United States, as far as legitimacy as a leader in the world. The world’s only true super power. Let’s also not forget that a loss would be the biggest recruiting tool for al Qaeda and the Taliban one could imagine.

Remember, the folks who make these groups up were also responsible for defeating the mighty Soviet Union. If we lose this war, the fragile Afghan government will fall, and you’ll have chaos and a breeding ground for terrorists on a scale the world has never known.

Oh, and don’t forget, Pakistan, which has nuclear weapons, could easily fall as well. Wouldn’t that be terrific!

Forget all of that for a moment.

If we lose this war, America’s legacy won’t just be a terrorist controlled super state, with nuclear weapons. OK, that will be part of America’s legacy, but the real legacy for Barack Obama, and America will be the human rights disaster. Before America liberated the Afghan people, the Taliban ruled with an iron fist.

Now I know “progressives” lose their mind if you even mention God in public, in America, and equate it to some mediaeval torture! This percieved horror by the left is nothing compared to what the Taliban, and al Qaeda do. These people really are the religious fanatics, the made up caricatures, the left has conjured up of Christians.

The Taliban and al Qaeda accept no deviation, by anyone, from their perverted version of Islam. You don’t comply, you die! Now one would think, our leftist friends would be all over these monsters who don’t practice “separation of church and state,” nor even grasp the concept, but alas, they are not.

Under Taliban and al Qaeda rule, women are basically property. They serve little or no purpose, to them, and have absolutely no rights. The US, if it did nothing else, liberated 10’s of millions of Afghan women. That’s no small deed. These women were little more than slaves. Girls were not even allowed to have an education!

“Progressives” tell you they are for women’s rights, now is their chance to step up and prove it!

For all of the reasons we cannot lose this war, the human tragedy that would occur is at the top of the list.

We need a leader, not a glorified pitch man!

Mr President, it’s time to stop the madness. Stop the lunacy of ObamaCare, stop “jet setting” around the world. Stop all of the nonsense. It is time for you to actually go to work. Have someone show you where your office is, then roll up your sleeves and get going!

You hand picked General McChrystal to run this war, and you approved his mission. It was a good choice.

Now the General is giving you a list of tools he needs to carry this plan out. Stop voting “present.” It’s time to be the Commander-in-Chief, one of the duties that is actually spelled out in that Constitution you have such little regard for.

Maybe the Great Ronald Reagan, and his stance on the Soviet Union, can be of some guidance to you. President Reagan’s philosophy on the Soviets can be boiled down to this: “We win, they lose!”

Mr President, you owe this to the American people, you owe this to the Afghan people, and you owe this to the rest of the free world. Time to put away the trappings of office, and the foolish playthings it allows you.

It’s time for you to lead!

In your leadership, the American people will be right beside you.

    how can we expect cooperation from the Afghan government when our bombers were responsible for the deaths of dozens of innocent villagers? To me, that more than anything would the biggest recruiting tool for the terrorists. Obama should apologize for those deaths, and pledge to fight the terrorists together with Afghanistan. We can’t win without treating them as an equal partner, a respected teammate.

      Unfortunately war is hell. The Taliban and al Qaeda purposely set up camps among civilians. This of course violates the precious Geneva Conventions that the left wing loons always harp on, but evidently that only applies when they want to bash our own troops.

      One innocent life lost is a tragedy, but, and I can’t believe I am saying this, I will stand with Obama on the bombings. Maybe, just maybe this will motivate the Afghan people to take up the fight, and not let al Qaeda and the Taliban mingle among them.

      They have to engage in battle too.

    I am very much in agreement will Mrs. Palin, and the rest of this story. I also feel that we should not be supporting the illigiel aliens as you may want to call them. they should be gathered up and taken back acrossed the boarder and the boarder celled off. these people have more rights and get more help that the american people and this is not right. We have our own people liveing on the steets with out home’s and food and we are more worried about the people that are bringing drugs and should not even be here to start with. half of them do not want to learn english they want us to spend the money to make us to learn their language, well who’s country is this any way? I am begining to thik tha it is going to be a communist nation because the government is take more and more of our rights ever day. We the people did not want the tarp and we the people did not think that the Senater’s or the Repasentative’s deserved a raise, we feel the their raises should have gone to pay it to help pay some of the bills that they voted on that we did not want or need. Like the wooden arrow program. Please explane. We have to many stupid pork programs like this one, instead of paying our bills and taking care of our people and sending the other people back home where they belong. I could say more but I really do not think anything will come out of this any way so why say more.


    I think it is time for the President to step up… If he is unsure call Hillary…. It is 3:00am…..If not Sarah will show him the way in 2012

    Here is what I think…If Obama would have given the stimulus package to the people of America, it would not have failed. We the people would have boosted the economy by our big spending. Instead it went to a bunch of nonsense and we are worse now then we were when Obama stepped in as President. As for Afghanistan, Obama needs to get his butt in gear, he needs to quit “playing” President and actually be one. I had a feeling this was going to happen. You see, all Obama knows is “playing” politics and being involved in corruption. When you are a corrupt “player” you cannot be a good leader. He either needs to pull his head out of his own butt or be a man and step down so that our country does not completely get flushed down the toilet…right now the toilet is clogged but keep on plunging and we are all doomed. I have never been so frightened for my future and the future of my children as I am right now, with “THAT” in power. We were already in a bad situation and now Obama is making it horribly worse. If something isn’t done soon this country we live in, the one we love so much will be nothing more than another third world country.

  8. Good post, and Palin is exactly right. Obama needs to adopt Gen. McChrystal’s recommendations and do so right now.

    He has been in office for over eight months, and was of course elected three months before that, so he’s had almost a year to figure out what to do. Instead, he dithers.

    The reason is simple; he never wanted to fight in Afghanistan in the first place. To him, like all liberals, Afghanistan was simply a stick with which to beat George W Bush. All their rhetoric about how Iraq was the wrong war but boy oh boy they wanted to fight in Afghanistan was all just a lot of hot air meant to get Obama elected.

    Now that he’s in office their war ardor has…cooled.

    Re casualties, neither Ten-Seng Guh nor Gary P have it right. See my post here for why

    • Gary P

      Great blog. Very good analysis.

      My worry on casualties are what will happen AFTER we leave. What the Taliban will do to the Afghans.
