Meeting The 2014 Deadline For An Afghanistan Exit Now, no one believes that even Afghans believe they will be 'ready' for the U.S. to bug-out in 2014, but almost no one believes the U.S. has the political or operational will to remain long past that date.

Inevitable Retreat In Afghanistan The military is quietly hoping we don't notice that they didn't actually transform their Kandahar misadventure from the leveling of homes, the taking of residents' lives, and the destruction of farmland and livestock into the nation-building success that they intended for the mission to highlight.

Iranian Influence In Iraq? Inconceivable! It's more than remarkable for conservatives and republicans to now complain about Iranian influence among the Shias in Iraq after their party's president (with their full and vocal support) removed the only existing wedge in the region against Iranian influence.

Justifying War in Oslo What was notable about President Obama's speech in accepting the Nobel Peace Prize was how much of it was centered on justifying war; just wars, in his estimation.

Lightning Bolts and Slopes in Afghanistan As with the Iraqi regime's foot-dragging on the political changes to their government that the president has said he's waiting for them to accomplish before he can pull our troops out, our military forces in Afghanistan are to make 'space' for the Karzai regime's foot-dragging reforms to emerge and blossom.

Pretense of an Afghanistan Exit Plan There is no exit in the president's escalation plan for Afghanistan, only a prospect of more fighting, killing, and unrest; both in the country and across the border into Pakistan.

Allowing China a Dominant Role in Afghanistan's Future It makes sense that we demand China assume more responsibility for preserving the state they benefit from.

In or Out of Afghanistan Any decision by President Obama to remain offensively engaged in Afghanistan will irrevocably commit the U.S. to an end-game which has eluded invaders of Afghanistan throughout history who have sought to transform the country with their military.

Pressure to Escalate Afghan Occupation May Result in Obama Re-Focus Away from Nation-Building Faced with limited resources (both money and manpower) available to fulfill all of the desires to escalate the occupation of Afghanistan, President Obama is now challenged (either by process or deliberate manipulation of the leaked review) to be more specific about what our future military role is in Afghanistan.

Obama's Pretense of Justice in Afghanistan The Obama decision this week to allow prisoners at Bagram prison in Afghanistan access to an administrative review panel of military officers to 'challenge their detentions' looks to be the same sham that Bush provided at Gitmo, with no opportunity provided prisoners to actually see the charges against them, review evidence, or even present witnesses.

Obama Pentagon Employs Bush-Era Propagandists to Screen Embedding Journalists in Afghanistan The propagandists in the Rendon Group, now employed by the Obama Pentagon, intend to transform the public debate on our escalated military involvement in Afghanistan into a one-sided hurrah

Everybody's Cryin Mercy The perception of an America bent on expanding empire across sovereign borders is going to take more than the president's demonstration of an understanding and appreciation of Islam in his Cairo address.

Obama's Hardest Thing PRESIDENT OBAMA, in an interview with Newsweek's Jon Meecham Wednesday, spoke about the burdens of office and described his sending of an additional 17,000 troops to Afghanistan as "extraordinarily difficult" in response to the question of, "what was the 'hardest thing he'd had to do in office so far?"

Hiding Torture Photos is Just Another Tactic in the 'Information War' The withholding of images of our militarism won't shift 'anti-American opinion' to accommodate and welcome the U.S. and their grudging attacks across sovereign borders, but it just might keep those still in blind or willing support of the military action from reacting in horror to the realities these target nations know from memory.

Bombing Afghans in Defense of Afghanistan? Karzai: "We believe strongly that air strikes are not an effective way in fighting terrorism. That's not good for the US, that's not good for Afghanistan, that's not good for the conducting of the war."

5000 troops from NATO for 'Afghan elections' is a signal Obama is on his own The president will find a great reservoir of goodwill in the international community for his diplomatic initiatives and offers, but I predict declining support for his entire Afghanistan mission - both at home and abroad - if the consequences and effects of the military operations continue to dominate the landscape.

The Line Between Our Grudging Military Mission in Afghanistan and Our Nation-Building Goals It will remain to be seen whether the U.S. humanitarian aid, economic development assistance, and Afghan government reforms Pres. Obama intends will out pace the counter-productive effects and consequences of his grudging military aggression against America's al-Qaeda nemesis
