The suspense is killing me.

Will President Obama send more troops to die for the occupation in Afghanistan?

Of course.

The last several weeks of a supposed decision on sending troops is just a made for media propaganda ploy.

President Obama will do as he has been planning to do since he was elected President. He has talked about the war that must be won in Afghanistan, and he has expanded that war into Pakistan.

President Obama has also already begun shifting manpower away from Iraq so that he can increase troop levels in Afghanistan.

So there will obviously be a surge in Afghanistan, and President Obama's agony over sending more troops to Afghanistan is pure propaganda.

The American public likes its Presidents to pretend to be caring for the lives of their soldiers. So President Obama pretends to take painstaking war decisions that have already been planned out well in advance.

John Lennon once wrote in his classic song 'Working Class Hero,' "There's room at the top they are telling you still, but first you must learn how to smile as you kill.

There's room at the top they are telling you still. But first you must pretend to agonize as you kill.

President Obama is the Agonizer-in-Chief.

But that is a lot better than our previous war monger Decider-in-Chief George W. Bush. He wasn't really compassionate, even though Bush was elected as a compassionate conservative.

No, today we have the really compassionate, liberal President Obama.

Sure Obama and Bush have the same war policy, but President Obama is just better at pretending to care more about killing people in unnecessary occupations for Empire.
