Tiger Edge, obviously you're unintelligent.

In Bush's defense, that was also photoshopped.
















But it was funny.

I remember Michael Moore joking about it back during the time of Fahrenheit 9/11 and getting jumped all over it. I kinda miss those days.

Honestly, Obama has really let me down by allowing a coup to happen in Honduras and it's fucking 2009. And don't tell me it's not important for the US to allow this type of thing. If the US hadn't supported it it simply wouldn't have happened which I won't even try to explain but that's just the way it is.

same old shit, different face. looks like another endless war is about to begin. so much for your "hope and change"

too bad people are so caught up in the left/right bullshit that they dont even see what is really going on.

Before the 2004 election, I had to pick up a two star general at the airport. We were chatting (meaning, he was talking directly to me and I was silent) in the car ride about the election (Kerry/Bush). He said it didn't matter who won, despite the rhetoric. He said back then (Autumn 2004) that as soon as Iraq cooled down, we would find a reason to shift the forces to Afghanistan. We are in the era of a permanent presence in the Middle East, especially near Iran. Even though he was just sharing his opinion, it seems he was right five years ahead of time.

i fully agree. we've poured an unimaginable amount of blood and treasure into the most fucked up region of the globe.

this is where empires come to die, even non-empire empires.

Actually, that general claimed the world economy was the real reason. He said a spike in the cost of oil would lead to a collapse in the system, as it turns out - he may have been right about that too (only it was the Iranians).

It would have been unwise to give Saddam more time to prepare for the invasion there by inflicting higher casualties on coalition forces.

Its great to see Obama ignore the liberal democrats who got him elected and go with the Generals and Republicans when it comes to this nations security.

Current news is the troop increase is 35,000 for Afghanistan which is about 90% of what General McCrystal asked for. Republicans will be happy!
