TPJ: This is why Barack Obama has been saying for some time that we need to pull soldiers out of Iraq and redeploy at least two combat brigades into Afghanistan which is the real central front on terrorism. There are many U.S. officials who seem to agree with Obama's assessment, "U.S. officials have said they need at least three more brigades in Afghanistan _ or more than 10,000 troops." Finally everyone is coming around to what Barack has been saying for years now. Plus, Obama's position looks all the more responsible and wise when you hear from the Iraqi government that they want us gone from their country and want to take responsibility.
And seeing how violence is down in Iraq then that is even more reason to shore up our forces in Afghanistan. In addition, Barack's insistence on diplomacy shows excellent judgment because Pakistan right now isn't doing too much to prevent al-Qaeda and the Taliban from maintaining save havens there. So we need some serious diplomacy with them. We need to follow Obama's policies in order to quell this violence and severely disrupt their ability to regroup.
Obama clearly understands that Pakistan is a much more dangerous threat than Iran seeing how Pakistan already has nuclear missiles, an unstable government and growing numbers of militants. These militants are biding their time until they can launch an attack on the Pakistani government to take over control of the country but especially the nuclear weapons. We need Obama's judgment that was right on not invading Iraq and is right now in redeploying at least two brigades to Afghanistan to quell the violence and resurrection of al-Qaeda and the Taliban.
What is John McClueless's policy on Afghanistan, it's called Iraq. His tunnel vision can't see anything else besides Iraq. He doesn't see how our Afghanistan policy has been damaged by our being bogged down in Iraq going on 6 years now. He said the following on the American t.v. show, "The View" in April of this year, 2008:
MCCAIN: But Afghanistan is not in trouble because of our diversion to Iraq.
