What war is Obama talking about?, Re: Afghan war, Obama says mission difficult but on track, BBC News Website, December 16, 2010

President Obama has announced that the United States is “on track” to achieve its goals in Afghanistan, those goals being to essentially end U.S. combat operations in 2014, turn over responsibility for the country to Afghans themselves by then and to disrupt, dismantle and defeat al-Qaeda and cripple their ability to launch terror attacks on America and its allies, which is why America went into Afghanistan in the first place…the whole idea was to fight them there so we didn’t have to fight them here.

Obama is dead wrong.

In order for the United States to end its combat operations in 2014 there has to be a competent, fully functioning Afghan military to replace its soldiers. That is simply not going to happen, no matter how much money and time is put into training and trying to increase the Afghan’s ability to take over from the Americans, defend their country and root out the Taliban and al-Qaeda (assuming they want to to begin with, which is one very large assumption). Even a cursory look at the situation on the ground will confirm this, regardless of how wildly optimistic the observer might be. It won’t happen by 2014 and given Afghan’s mentality, religion and history it will never happen.

Obama should know this.

In order for Afghan’s to take responsibility for their own affairs there has to be a national government in place which is free of corruption, acceptable to all of the country’s people, strong enough to keep all of Afghanistan’s warring parties in check, skilled enough to manage the nation’s resources and business and prescient enough to develop its national institutions and infrastructure. There is no precedent in Afghanistan’s history for this, none whatsoever. To think that it might happen by 2014, or 3014 either for that matter, is laughable. You can chalk that up to Afghan’s mentality, religion and history too.

Obama should know this as well.

He should also know that if one wants to disrupt, dismantle and defeat al-Qaeda and cripple its ability to launch terror attacks against the U.S. and its allies going after them in Afghanistan is the wrong way to do it. For one thing their presence in Afghanistan is negligible…the bulk of their fighters and senior figures are in Pakistan and the border regions and that is where the Americans must go if they wish to make real inroads against them in that part of the world. This they refuse to do. For another, al-Qaeda’s tentacles are worldwide and the organization is made up of cells all over the globe with no real central command structure. What happens in Afghanistan, Pakistan or the border regions has little or no impact on al-Qaeda’s ability to launch terror attacks against the West. Pouring so much effort into Afghanistan isn’t going to prevent Islamic murderers from setting off bombs in our cities and trying to kill or maim as many of us as they can. It hasn’t in the past and it won’t in the future.

So what are we really doing in Afghanistan and why does our President go around making ridiculous statements that fly in the face of reality? Damned if I know…politics and ideology maybe? I do know this though. His conduct of the war is one of the myriad reasons he should be tossed out of office in 2012.
