One of the best comments on America's never-ending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan I've seen recently:


Is it really okay if Obama does it?

For evidence that the Iraq war is unnecessary, see this. Read this for evidence that the U.S. could have taken Bin Laden out years ago and avoided a decades-long war in Afghanistan. And for proof that the entire war on Muslim extremists is unnecessary for our national security, see this.

And for proof that war is very harmful to the economy, see this, this and this.

Yes, I know that Obama didn't start the wars. And I voted for Obama and had high hopes for him.

After all, on October 27, 2007, Obama said:

I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank.

Obama broke his promise. There is absolutely no reason to still be in Iraq or Afghanistan. Obama is no different from Bush when it comes to elective warmongering.

Obama's new nickname: OBOMBA.

I originally saw the slogan here.


  1. But i am just fad up....with Obama's speech..

  2. The problem is that the bank which the promise was taken to was Lehman and now the promise is bankrupt!

  3. I remain amazed that adults expect a political candidate to speak truth. I am further amazed adults expected Obama to stand up to his Lefty rhetoric. No Democrat once elected expects to move Left, they always move as far right as possible after the election.

    I was against Obama from the outset as being the FURTHEST RIGHT of all the Democrats running. The Black Commentator told you this man was a fraud.
