The Messiah Has Lost His Plot!

Is This Politics Obama Style?




First of all we have had a spectacle of a mega blame game with BP, rather than the constructive criticism and joint effort which was called for to stem the leak and a reflection that it was a BP version of the Bhopal tragedy, pictured but far fewer little people dead!


Human beings are fallible. Well except Obama Almighty. Now General Stanley McChrystal http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/17390/119236 has weighed in with a character assessment! This article is well worth a read, amazing!
Now many, many US bloggers, here is just one example, http://hubpages.com/hub/Top-7-Marxist-Communist-Policies-Being-Implemented-By-Obama-Today, suggest Obama's communism is likely to become a much bigger issue as we watch the "wheels missing" arrival back to earth. Of course one could argue that an American-Sino love in might solve America's debt problems but what would that mean for the rest of the world. What a choice for the future, The Bilderbergers or a Communist style, free as far as it goes to satisfy the Politburo, system! Bit like we had here for 13 years! Is Obama becoming America's version of Snotty? It's rather like 1939 when the Yanks bided their time in case they needed to become mates with Adolf. Then, in the 50s, Japanese markets were flavour of the decade. Now, it seems, Obama is weighing up the choice between Europe and China. It's a mad, mad world. Great film, though!

All politicians put expedience before common sense. Sacking a good general never was a wise move. A sacking a bad one is different.

Because Obama is insulated from the real world and has no direct contact with common sense, he is as likely as not to make the wrong decision here.

A senior military man with a proven track record (albeit not an entirely savoury one) should be tended and watered like a rare bloom. Of course he will say that civilian politicians are arse-wipes. This is because (a)this is what he thinks and (b)they are. But this should be tolerated if he is capable of getting the job done.

Unfortunately the military mind that can admit the need for retreat is a rare one (Wellington was probably the last one, maybe General Slim WW2) "just give me two more divisions" etc., but we are really at that point in Afghanistan and I fear that McChrystal may not be capable of such introspection. We have tried but can do no more. Enough treasure has been spent and enough precious blood has been spilt - it is time to withdraw chaps.

Expectant faces turn as one towards the Commander in Chief. Oh dear...

I totally agree.

Can't help but feel that the treasure spent IS the blood of our soldiers spilt on foreign soil. I wouldn't be surprised if, at some point soon, they told us all soundly to bugger off when they are asked to pay the price that is asked of them!

I agree about Obama. The man's rarified intellectualism is really starting to make Bush look better.

But not that much better.

Dunno about the Americans waiting to see how Adolf did though OR. That's a bit cheap. They were smarter than that. They got out the balance sheets, did the cost-benefit analysis, and reckoned we had more assets to strip and were a better bet for bleeding dry in perpetuity.

The great arsenal of democracy my arse.

So does that explain the Afghan presence, Jim? It may very well!!

Jim Baxter said...

It may well indeed OR.

As far as I know only two British PMs have gone against American military 'requirements' since WWII.

Eden, who got screwed mightily by the Eiesnhower regime, and Wilson.

If Wilson has nothing else to his credit it is that he kept us out of Vietnam, whetever the party politics that might have 'helped' make the decision for him.

One of the ironies of Blair's emasculation of the Labour party was that he had no such restraints on his ability to grandstand on the lives of our soldiers.

If Blair had made the decisons that he did out of integrity, however wrong they might have been, then he would have vanished once he was out of office.

Instead, he makes as much money as he can from every connection that he made, every favour that he granted, every return obligation that he waived, to Britain's cost, in lives all the way down to contracts.
