Ring a bell?
It's easy to forget that first foray in the never-ending terror wars, given the horror, torture, trauma, and carnage the giggling killer brought to Iraq, but US forces have been in Afghanistan now for nearly eight years. Almost twice as long as our involvement in World War Two. And what has been accomplished?
Osama is still (possibly deliberately) at large, the opium trade is flourishing as never before, the Taliban has risen from the near-dead to torment the puppet Karzai and his pretend "democracy," and the violence is rising faster than the summer temperatures.
Really? How so? Awash in drug money, saturated with weapons, fighting on home territory when and where they choose . . . this equals a "tough month?"
So. How can our Fearless Leader respond to this ongoing "hard work" of other people killin' and dyin' and torturin' and stuff like that? Lemme think . . . He already gave up golf, sort of; maybe he could abstain from cheeseburger pizza and chili fries? Or ping pong? Yeah -- that's it. Perhaps he could quit ping pong.
When you are The Decider -- the War President fighting for Truth, Justice and All That Other Important Stuff -- you learn to make sacrifices.
