Obama: Afghan war secures America

Obama: Afghan war secures America
August 18, 2009

US President Barack Obama says there will be no quick or easy victory over the Taliban, noting that the war in Afghanistan is crucial in protecting Americans from terrorism.

Talking in a meeting of veterans in Arizona on Monday, Obama tried to step up the campaign in Afghanistan. “The insurgency in Afghanistan didn't just happen overnight and we won't defeat it overnight," he said.

US administration is sending 30,000 extra troops to Afghanistan, therefore the success or failure of the mission of US forces in the war-torn country is crucial for its future plans in the region.

"This will not be quick, nor easy. But we must never forget this is not a war of choice, this is a war of necessity," he said. "If left unchecked, the Taliban insurgency will mean an even larger safe haven from which al-Qaeda would plot to kill more Americans," he said.

The remarks came a day after British Prime Minister Gordon Brown trying to ease the growing opposition to the Afghan war said the war in Afghanistan is a "sacrifice" made to make "Britain and the rest of the world" a safer place.

The two leaders however failed to elaborate the dire situation the war-ravaged nation has been facing ever since the US-led coalition forces invaded their country more than eight years ago.

According to UN figures, Afghan civilians remain the main victims of the notorious war which was launched to allegedly destroy the militancy and arrest militant leaders including Osama bin Laden.

This week's Afghan presidential and provincial elections will be considered as a test of the new US strategy of providing security on the ground.

This is while, Taliban vowing to interrupt the election, have already fired rockets at the Afghan capital twice this month.

A rocket hit Tuesday the presidential palace in the center of Afghan capital, Kabul and a second struck the city's police headquarters.

Also on Saturday, a suicide car bomb exploded outside the NATO military headquarters in the Afghan capital Kabul near the US embassy, killing seven people and injuring scores.


Jesus H. Christ

And I thought Bush was bad.

Obushbama is WARMONGER and Snake Oil Salesman

Now he's sending troops to Colombia for the "war on terror".......which is going to piss off Chavez in Venezuela......brace yourself for another war in South America........did I mention that Venezuela has a lot of OIL ??

Deal: United States soldiers will deploy to Colombia


Prepare For War: Chavez


and did you mention...

And did you mention that they want that oil priced out of US Dollars? It has often been said that is the real reason Saddam Hussein was targeted in the first gulf war because he wanted price Iraqi oil in euros. How telling was this article now in hindsight.


Lets you know that Chavez is much keener than we may think.

Peace all

"When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes... Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain." - Napoleon Bonaparte, 1815

Lies Again and Again


God, this is pathetic and he was doing it again today, saying the Afghan war was a necessity. Any doubts about what this guy really represents people?

9/11 Truth

More important now than ever.



Hi Adam! You would have made a better president and a lot funnier too.

Please inform B. Obama que Al Qaeda is a blown up organisation.

Herblay FRANCE,

bonsoir ,
can someone please have the kindness to inform Barack Obama that Al Qaeda as an international organisation has never existed and explain that he just has to click on his blackberry on the following link

can someone please help him to consult the FBI internet page on the most wanted man Bin Laden
where we see that the FBI has not hard evidence proving that Bin Laden was the master mind behind 911. He is wanted for other acts but not for 911 !

can someone please help him to get intro contact with his friend Colin Powell who has still not given the world his white paper proving that Bin Laden did it !

Mr Barack Obama you are in front of the world and we want justice for the people horribly murdered on the 11th of September 2001, in Afghanistan , in Iraq and else where in the world.

Obama First Said This Isn't A War Of Choice

When the student is ready the teacher will come.

Hello Truthseekers & Truthtellers,
Obama first said this isn't a war of choice. Well Mr. President your wrong to begin with by saying that because when the Taliban refused to make deals with the corporate oil companies before 9/11 the DOD started making plans for an invasion to secure the pipelines which they now have large military bases protecting. The Neo-Cons working with the oil executives made the choice to go to war with Afghanistan because they knew there were huge profits to be made. But, they needed that New Pearl Harbor first. Obama's also wrong when he says it's a "War of Necessity" because the plain and simple fact is it's a "War Of Aggression". Mr. President you have just been corrected by a retired grade school teacher. Go back and do your history lessons.

Take Care Matt
