30,000 More Troops to Afghanistan

One year after the anointed one ascended to the throne, the great one (also known as President Obama) has decided after months of deep thinking that now is the time. Empire America is crumbling from within. The economy is imploding, unemployment is spreading like the black plague, foreclosures are annihilating the housing market, commercial real estate is time bomb, our industry has been demolished, the education system is barely graduating 70% of youth, we're trillions of dollars into debt and now the actor and chief has decided to send an additional 30,000 of our soldiers into a rigid desert terrain with no clear objective to fight a highly-motivated guerrilla force.

Let's see if this sounds familiar.

1. Unnecessary War
2. Foreign Occupation
3. Warfare on extremely difficult terrain
4. Guerrilla War
5. No Clear Objective
6. Escalation
7. New president, same policy

Hmm, this sounds a lot like that TV show "Mash." No wait, it sounds like the war that took place doing the show.

This war has the making for what I'm calling Vietnam 2.

So this it, America. Noble Peace Prize recipient Barrack Obama has just announced that he'll be sending 30,000 more troops into Afghanistan.
