A Prediction

From The Opinionated Fool:



Suppose, just for a moment, that some unscrupulus political person, in a powerful national position (read: Barack Hussein Obama), might consider using American troops as pawns to advance an agenda. It sounds harsh, cruel, and so partisan as to be political science-fiction. 

But think about this:
Barack Hussein Obama's health-care initiative is on the fence, big time. At first he wanted a bi-partisan bill; then determined that wasn't really necessary. Then other cracks appeared in the form of moderate and conservative Democrats.The health-care bill (the one that doesn't exist yet) stalled.


Enter stage right: Afghanistan, the war Barack Hussein Obama himself campaigned on as the 'right war' for this country. His personally-selected general submitted an assesment of the situation in Afghanistan along with a request for the additional troops, 40,000 to be specific. The assesment has sat on Barack Hussein Obama's desk for over a month now. Additionally, eventual meetings with Barack Hussein Obama and his military and civilian advisors has resulted in the the 'promise' of a decision on strategy and troop requests within the next few weeks - all while our troops are being killed. (For all the folks out there with fathers/mothers/sons/daughters in the military, and as a parent of a U.S. Marine safely back from Iraq, the callousness of this hestiancy is frightening.)

Now the prediction: At some point I will not be surprised if a 'deal' is struck. To garner support for the health-care bill among a few Republicans and, more importantly, moderate Democrats, the White House will use the Afghan troop request as a bargaining chip. In essence: Give support to the health-care bill, get a quick decision on the troop request and war strategy. Cruel, but not surprising.

Barky Obummer, Poser

President-Elect Barky Obummer visited Marines at Kaneohoe Bay during his Hawaiian vacation. He spent about an hour at the dining hall, shaking hands and posing for pictures. 

Sunlen Miller reports:

"As Obama entered the room, it was absent of the regular fanfare of cheering and clapping. The diners were polite, staying seated at their respective tables and waited for the president-elect to come to them to stand up."H/T: Gateway Pundit

It would have been nice if Barky could have found another hour to visit Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu. Tripler is the largest military hospital in the Asian and Pacific Rim region.


Hawaii Five-Oops ?

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific , located in Punchbowl Crater just north of Honolulu, is the final resting place of over 30,000 veterans of World Wars I and II, Korea, and Vietnam.



And it is the site of an unforgivable show of disrespect to not only every veteran interred there, especially the ones whose graves were trod all over, but also to the 23 veterans who survived the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor who were special guests that day.
