President Obusha to Announce “Mission Accomplished”

Friday, August 27, 2010

On Tuesday, President Obusha will address the American people from the Oval Office and tell them what they want to hear: the end of formal combat operations in Iraq is at hand. Mission Accomplished 2.0!

Banking on a population sufficiently medicated on sports scores and addled by credit card debt, President Obusha will read prepared text from his trusty teleprompter and breeze over the fact that 50,000 U.S. troops will remain in Iraq awaiting the completion of the new, $1.3 billion dollar Afghanistan base in 2012.

The Afghanistan base will include new runways, hangars, barracks, storage areas, a “weapons arming area” and other facilities. They are being built to accommodate the Special Operations troops used by the Pentagon to carry out “targeted killings,” i.e., assassinations, which have become a key component of the U.S. war. They will also house a unit operating pilotless drone aircraft used for “Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance,” as well as lethal missile attacks.

If all goes as planned, President Obusha will sell the fake withdrawal lie to a nation worn down to the bone from nearly a decade of war, deaths and debt. Of course, selling the lie will require more than a simple leap of faith. It means President Obusha is wagering the White House that the American people don’t read the blogs and are clueless about the expansion of the U.S. Empire into Pakistan, Yemen and Iran. All guaranteed future stops on President Obusha’s excellent Empire adventure.

    I won’t be watching.

    As long as 50,000 troops remain in Iraq, then the war isn’t over and Obama is just a regular liar.

  2. Vivzzz says:

    The irony is, I will bet $100 that 70% of Americans have no clue they are paying for a new $1.3 billion base in Afghanistan.

    You see, if the US wasn’t planning on a long, long stay in the region, there is no way on God’s green earth we would be spending this amount of coin on a facility.

    We will never leave the region. Not in 20 years and not in 100 years. This assumes the US exists in 100 years and at this rate, I am doubtful.

  3. Smooch says:

    “President Obusha” ROFL!

    Man, when you’re done with someone you don’t mess around. I feel your frustration though. I really thought Obama would deliver more for Main Street but all I see is a whore for Wall Street.

  4. Estacada says:

    Renaming the mission and then taking credit for ending the war is the stuff of Harvard legalese.

    Until 100% of the troops are redeployed out of Iraq, then the war isn’t over. But I suspect many antiwar Democrats will welcome Obama’s announcement even if he isn’t telling the entire truth.

  5. Big Hank says:

    For the life of me, I still haven’t heard a logical and reasonable explanation why we have 100,000 troops in Afghanistan?


  6. Pechanga says:

    Big Hank – If Christopher and others are correct, and the next focus of “the war on terrorism” is Pakistan, Iran and Yemen, it’s a whole hell of a lot easier for the military to mobilize ground troops from Afghanistan than from a base in the USA.

    It’s all about what make the most strategic sense the military planners.

    Until I read this piece, I was totally unaware my tax dollars were going for a new $1.3 billion dollar base in Afghanistan. No wonder the national debt is now a staggering $13.5 trillion and growing.

  7. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    100,000 in Afghanistan?
    50,000 troops in Iraq?

    How many ways can you spell b.u.l.l.s.h.i.t?

    The troops belong along the US border with Mexico stretching from San Ysidro, CA to Brownsville, TX. This is where the national security threat is real and if not pushed back now, could undo the country forever.

  8. Jolly Roger says:

    They won’t attack Iran, because Iran will make Iraq look like a walk in the park. I only see an attack on Pakistan (worse by degrees than Iran) if Pakistan implodes, a distinct possibility.

    Yemen, though….. they can have ’em a good old time in Yemen.

    Is there anyone left that still wonders why they hate us?

  9. MichaelTAtheist says:

    ‘Black Bush”, Busher-bama, You’re just another fricking LIAR, just like your god-damn predecessor. And yet, you’re even less effective than he was, and, now you’re heading towards also being the most hated.. Far surpassing ”white-Bush”. The shame is, we knew what we had in Bushit…..and we expected him to be a fuck-up! We all thought you would be better instead, you’re being worse. When this Country makes a sharp turn to the right in 2012, it’ll be your fault, you fucking ‘House Ni&&er!’

  10. Chad Lebanon says:

    Arizona Leatherneck — Agreed.

    The Mexican military just discovered 72 bodies buried in a shallow grave on a ranch outside Monterrey, MX. 56 were men, 16 women.

    These 72 victims of the Mexican drug cartels can be added to the 28,000 people slaughtered since President Calderon declared war on the drug cartels in 2006.

    For perspective, Monterrey is an easy 200 mile, 3 1/2 hour drive to the border with Texas. We have a civil war raging 200 miles from Texas.

    If this doesn’t constitute a national security risk then I have a brain tumor.

    But the USA won’t militarize the border for fear of being labeled anti-Hispanic by confused liberals.

  11. Shayne K. says:

    We can’t occupy the globe without a return of the draft. It’s only a matter of time until some brave soul proposes it.

  12. MichaelTAtheist says:

    Shayne K. There’s a little flaw in your thinking! We should be minding our own damn business instead of trying to occupy the entire Globe!

  13. Randy Arroyo says:

    Here’s what will shut the whole operation down in 72 hours: the day China announces they’re not buying more US debt. When Uncle Sam is left holding his nut sack because he can’t interest anyone in playing, the Pentagon and the neocons who run it will be forced to rethink occupation as the foundation of American foreign policy. Personally, I can’t wait for that day to arrive.

  14. Adirondacky says:

    Jesus! No wonder Obama (Obusha?) has a committee looking at slashing Social Security benefits and upping the retirement age to 70. The more in the trust fund the neocons can raid to fund the expansion of the US empire. Makes me livid. Just livid.

  15. Dale L. Suyeishi says:

    Cost of War in Iraq (as of Aug. 27, 2010)

    Cost of War in Afghanistan (as of Aug. 27, 2010)

    Cost of U.S. Wars Since 2001 (start of Afghanistan war)

    68% of this breath taking sum was borrowed from Communist China and Japan. Next year, in 2011, the first payments will come due and we do not have the monies in the US Treasury to make the payment.

    So what will the Federal government do? Well, we could refinance the debt payment, a delay from economic eventuality. Or we could begin selling assets like Mt. Rushmore or the US Capitol. This assumes Communist China or Japan is interested in holding title of such American treasures.

    The bottom line is, we have nothing to show for these wars. Nothing.

  16. Rogerio Simonetti says:

    When US troop levels in Iraq go to zero, then I will believe Mr. Obama’s claim of ending Bush’s Iraq war.

    Until then, no sale baby.

  17. R.J. says:

    I will be at work and when I come home I will turn on USA Network and watch Covert Affairs. I have no intention on listening to Obusha’s blather.

  18. lea-lea says:

    Arizona Leatherneck & Chad Lebanon,

    You’re 100% correct. US troops must be deployed along the border with Mexico to stop the drug cartels from exporting violent gangs to American cities.

    Silly Obama won’t be the president to do it. He’s too timid and afraid of his own shadow.

  19. MichaelTAtheist says:

    Lea-lea……. Unfortunately, Obusha has just turned out to be the educated ”House Ni&&er” who we allowed to come inside. He won’t take any chances by creating any controversy, or by trying to get anything progressive done. He’s enjoying the paid vacations too much. Sorry to have to be so critical…. but the money I spent, helping getting this JOKER elected gives me the right.

  20. Jolly Roger says:

    Why is it necessary to use a racial epithet? Leave that shit to the Klanbaggers, and keep your own credibility as a bonus.

    I tried, years ago, to make the point that the President and Hillary are two sides of the same coin-dam near the exact same thing with different modes of dress and a different surname. I think it is more than enough to make that criticism, in exactly those terms. Their gender or race doesn’t have shit to do with their fucked-up ways.

  21. VicoDANIEL says:

    I guess it’s like the definition of what “is,” is.

    To some, leaving 50,000 troops in Iraq and renaming the mission meets the definition of “ending the war.”

    But to others — me included, ending war in Iraq means 100% of the troops must be brought home. Of course, the future role of the USA in the region begins and ends with Iraq.

    If most Americans understood what is happening in Uzbekistan they would impeach Obama because he is continuing his cousin Dick Cheney’s tactic of using Uzbek secret prisons to keep suspected war criminals.

    A violation of the Geneva Convention.
