“A decade of war is now ending,” Obama says.
That’s what happens when you surrender/cut and run. It’s the chutzpah of the cutter-and-runner in chief to decree a humiliation as a great victory.
A decade of war is now ending. Unfortunately a new century of war has been started against us.
“A decade of war is now ending and an economic recovery has begun,” Obama says.
And war is peace, and freedom is slavery, and just so you know, ignorance is strength, too.
Our economy is going nowhere. Obama believes that if he taxes growth and prosperity he’ll somehow get more growth and more prosperity when in non-insane reality we’ll get less of both. Obama has spent the last four – going on five – years blaming everybody and everything else but himself and his failed policies.

Obama says decade of war ending
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says that a decade of war is now ending and an economic recovery has begun.
America’s possibilities are limitless, the president said in his inaugural address. He said we will seize this moment if we seize it together.
Obama said that America can’t succeed when only a few at the top do well and a growing many can barely make it. The country’s prosperity must rest on a rising middle class, he said.
Obama spoke after taking the public oath of office Monday for his second term.
George W. Bush won the war in Iraq and settled the status of forces agreement before leaving office. Obama demonized George Bush’s successful war-winning surge strategy only to copy it in a war that George Bush had the sense to know America couldn’t win – which was why he kept it a largely special forces mission.
I’ve made this point a number of times before (see here for one back in October 2009 when I predicted Obama would fail just as he is in fact failing): for all the hate Democrats poured on Bush for taking out Saddam Hussein after the dictator had done about 20,000 stupid and confrontational things too many, Iraq was a perfect place for America to take its stand against the war on terror. The country was largely flat, allowing our full military arsenal to maneuver and dominate. The people were educated, allowing us to establish a viable government. And the country of Iraq was secular, allowing us to at least have a damn chance to hand power over to Arabs who actually WEREN’T jihadist terrorists.
What was that phrase I used back in 2009? Oh, yes, here it is:
In demanding that Afghanistan be the central front, Democrats – and in particular Barack Obama – may well have chosen a war that we can’t win.
Barack Obama thought all that victory stuff was bad, apparently because the man has a genuine problem with America actually winning something. So let’s massively escalate a war that we can’t win, humiliate ourselves by cutting and running and declare it a job well done for mass political consumption.
Instead, Obama determined to launch a crusade in a mountainous and cave-ridden hellhole of utterly ignorant religious fanatics. Obama said, “Let’s go to the graveyard of empires, instead. Because yes we can!”
And within six months of “the war ending” the Taliban will have made all the sacrifices of American lives and treasure absolutely worthless. Because they will move right back in and take over. Just as the people who had a freaking clue told you would happen.
So the Iraq War that we won is evil but the Afghanistan War that Obama lost is good. Because we held George W. Bush to a standard higher than victory and under Obama a withdrawal is terrific because “a decade of war is ending,” after all.
Why did I allude to the infamous statement, “We have peace in our time”???
Neville Chamberlain almost ended Western Civilization with his secular humanist liberal progressive cowardice. He gave up Europe to Hitler the same way Obama is now giving up the Middle East to Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. The thing that the two miserable turds of history have in common was that each was a fascist dictator in domestic matters, but an appeasing weakling on foreign affairs. Chamberlain thought he could appease his way to peace. Obama, even more stupidly, believes he can withdraw his way to peace. He’s already withdrawn out of Egypt and given the best Arab friend of both Israel and America away to terrorists. He’s already given Libya (Benghazi) over to terrorists after causing the first ambassador to be murdered since the failed Carter years in the 1970s. He’s given up in Yemen. He’s given up in Algeria where all the hostages the terrorists took were all murdered. He’s given up throughout North Africa. He’s already giving up damn near anywhere where there’s a crisis. Including Iran, where Democrats went from mocking George W. Bush for believing that Iran was becoming a nuclear threat to Iran becoming a nuclear power under Obama’s watch.
If anything, Chamberlain was wiser.
But that’s what we get for voting for God Damn America.
