How Obama Lost Afghanistan

The U.S. President who gave up Syria and Yemen without a fight is now leading a half-hearted counteroffensive in Afghanistan. The Taliban seems to have correctly assessed the lack of resolve of the current U.S. leadership, and has evidently decided to retake all of Afghanistan.

In his first presidential campaign of 2008, then-Senator Obama called U.S. engagement in Iraq the “bad war,” and instead wanted his country to focus on Afghanistan — his “good war.”

But after U.S. troops withdrew from Iraq in 2011, large parts of Iraq fell under the control of the Islamic State (ISIS), while the remaining part came under the influence of Iran.

So how is President Obama’s “good war” in Afghanistan going?

    That’s why P.M. Harper got us out of Afghanistan as soon as Obama took over and it was obvious he wasn’t going to fight to maintain the successful status quo let alone try to win.

    • Obama clearly is on the side of Islam.

      • He is a Muslim. He is doing exactly what a good Muslim should do. He even uses taqiyya to deceive the stupid infidels.

        Thank the democrats for the change.

    Obama is from the Kingdom of Assholistan, and he doesn’t know the Islam world from a hatrack.

    If it concerns anything but mau-mauing whiteys, bashing his enemies, or rewarding his friends and homies with goodies, Bama is clueless.

    • I think he is a closet Muslim.

        He should evolve and come out of the closet.

    It’s bad enough that Bush screwed up the war effort in Afghanistan when he had the entire country on his side. Playing whack-a-mole with Al Qaeda while trying to nation build in Afghanistan are exercises in futility.

    It’s simple: he doesn’t give a shit.
