'We're Staying': Obame to Make 'Endless War in Afghanistan' Official

Jon Queally, staff writer

Betraying repeatedly stated vows to bring all U.S. troops home before he leaves office, President Barack Obama will announce on Thursday that as many as 5,500 soldiers will remain in the country until at least 2017.

Citing unnamed officials, the Associated Press was the first to break the news and noted the announcement will ensure Obama—despite numerous promises to the contrary—"hands the conflict off to his successor."AP reports:

Nobel Peace Prize made a mockery! Obama has carried-on his role as a loyal cog in the gears of endless MICC for-profit war beyond what was expected of him. The blood of millions is on his hands........

"I know how to keep the troops here forever, Poppies...Poppies, ha ha ha!"

Wicked Witch of the West(ern money elites)

Po


#4

I still remember that picture of Zbigniew Brzezinski handing off the stinger missiles to one Tim Osman about thirty-six years ago. The nation seems incapable of learning, especially when the MIC has so much at stake. Make the bombs, blow them up, rinse and repeat.


#5

Having bases and troops in every nation on Earth is the wet dream of the MIC...and the more of them in action the better. $$$$


#6

5500 troops in a country bigger than Texas? What the heck for, what can they do other than get killed?


#7

Unlike most Americans, I remember Obama promising to "bring the troops home" from the middle east as soon as he took office. He also promised to close Guantanamo, move towards renewable energy, etc., etc., etc....

Like every American president, he is a faithful servant of the MIC.

From RAWA's (Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan) web site:

"The US "War on terrorism" removed the Taliban regime in October 2001, but it has not removed religious fundamentalism which is the main cause of all our miseries. In fact, by reinstalling the warlords in power in Afghanistan, the US administration is replacing one fundamentalist regime with another. The US government and Mr.Karzai mostly rely on Northern Alliance criminal leaders who are as brutal and misogynist as the Taliban.

RAWA believes that freedom and democracy can’t be donated; it is the duty of the people of a country to fight and achieve these values. Under the US-supported government, the sworn enemies of human rights, democracy and secularism have gripped their claws over our country and attempt to restore their religious fascism on our people.

Whenever fundamentalists exist as a military and political force in our injured land, the problem of Afghanistan will not be solved. Today RAWA's mission for women's rights is far from over and we have to work hard for establishment of an independent, free, democratic and secular Afghanistan. We need the solidarity and support of all people around the world."

Afghanistan is yet another country that the stilted and self serving dark powers in collusion and without humanity of any sort have ravaged. And Obama has been little more than their articulate poster boy dressed appropriately for the latest manipulative photo shoot.

Thanks WiseOwl, you've drawn back the curtain a bit on the powers that be.

The difference between Russia and the USA whn a country occupied by their forces? The Russians will leave. The Americans must be driven out by force.


#17

The British press runs story after story of "Putin attacking our boys according to CIA officials" as they try to claim Russia acts as an Air Force for ISIS attacking only western trained "moderate" rebels.

The posts in response to such articles is overwhelming disgust at the USA and virtually everyone suggesting ISIS is us backed and the articles cheap propaganda.

The lies are not working as they once did.

Now go to Poland where Zbiggy was born. The Government there is viruently anti-Putin but they are finding that the people are actually coming down on Putin's side here with that population also suggesting the USA is supporting terror groups.

To those terrorist groups in Syria. There is a rebranding in process. Any that Russia attacks are to be called "pro democratic forces" . Any that attack Assad or Russian forces are to be called "pro democratic". Jihadists and radical Islamists will be used when it convenient. These are to include the ones that occupy the power plants the US strikes are the ones that are inside of empty buildings that the US bombs.

Last I heard it was 9800 troops staying to start with to be reduced later. Later never comes.

Not too long ago there was a story of a soldier coming back from Afghanistan, went into a convenience store and told the clerk that he has just returned from active duty in Afghanistan. The clerk asked: "Is there still a war going on over there?"


#20

Not precisely surprising, when war is a constant rather than a terrible exception.


#21

Yes, and also in regards to Syria, Putin was invited by the legitimate government of Assad, while Obama was not invited and is in Syria to overthrow Assad.


#22

" The US Government and Mr. Karzai mostly rely on the Northern Alliance ( the good terrorists ) criminal leaders who are as brutal and misogynist as the Taliban "( the bad terrorists ).

Bush flew the Taliban, secretly to his ranch in Crawford, Texas and offered them the economic hit man choice of either we can carpet Afghanistan with gold; or carpet your country with bombs. And the Taliban refused the gold; therefor they have been demonized ever since. That is the problem, they may be thugs but they are not Amerika's thugs!


#24

Obama to make endless wars official.

SURPRISE! SURPRISE! To use Gomer Pyles phrase.

Until Amerika has a political non-violent revolution nothing will ever change. We are the one county in the world that needs a complete regime change and replace the current Modus Operandi of:
ENDLESS ENEMIES; FOR ENDLESS WARS; FOR ENDLESS MILITARY INDUSTRIAL PROFITS!

If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work.

War: a massacre of people who don't know each other for the profit of people who know each other but don't massacre each other.

I don't think either one has a stellar record...
