Are we at war? Will Obama Decide?

In Opinion on September 11, 2012 at 11:53 am

So, based on the FB traffic this morning, it appears that once every year on September 11th, we’ll all be patriots, hold hands, proclaim “We’ll never forget” and sing “God Bless America” in unison. Then, for the next 364 days, we’ll scream at each other about the stupid wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We’ll let idiotic public figures tell us over and over that Bush Lied, US soldiers are dying in vain, bankers are crooks, Republicans are racist misogynistic homophobes, ‘access’ to the condom/family-planning aisle at CVS is a civil rights issue, Osama bin Laden is dead and GM is alive, blah blah blah . . . and let them pretend they’re offering us a rational, sophisticated political debate as they fight for the microphones, cameras and political power over our lives.

Here’s how I see it with regard to the national security question on our minds on 9/11: President Obama, if, as your every insinuation suggests, you believe it was an error for President Bush to initiate military action in Iraq and Afghanistan, then have a modicum of dignity and courage – order all the troops home immediately, since you think their mission is illegitimate.  If you do not issue that order, you must have the decency to defend your predecessor and the wisdom to issue the orders necessary to WIN the war – instruct the Army to obliterate the enemy without mercy – that’s how a country wins a war at least cost of blood and treasure. There is no rational position between those two options. Your attempt to have it both ways disgusts us and demeans the office you’ve held IN VAIN for 1,695 days. MAKE UP YOUR MIND OR GIVE US BACK THE KEYS TO THE OVAL OFFICE. You’re wasting our national resources and abusing the power of your office to rob our liberties. In short, you are diddling with our national charter and our very lives. We’ve had enough.

Or, as I asked in January 2010 – Are we at war or should we surrender? (Link to YouTube video below.)
