So are those real army trucks behind him, or a backdrop?

Either way trucks and troops coming home soon to an uban area near you to maintain "Homeland Security" for the sake of J.P. Morgue, Goldman, Wall Street, Wal Mart, and the Kleptoligarchy

Keep your eye on the lookout for the MockingJay flying by the corner of the screen landing on the truck...

Didn't waste my time watching, but I am sure that any military troops and officers in the vicinity were apropriately disarmed before coming anywhere near their commander-in-chief.

The Afghan's must be some horny proliferate bastards.  After Russia and us the population should be about zero.   By any chance are there a bunch of kids that look like Clinton over there?

"Al-Qaeda" = "The Base" in English. Americans are so stupid.

I want to see 1080p Sony Handycam video of Osama's dead body before I believe BO got him. I believe Osama's been dead for about a decade.

You don't need troops in Afghanistan, when they are all in Iran.

Withdraw from Afghanistan, and move them into Iran.

 

You don't need much troops anyway if they can control drones from Arabian seas.

Yeah right, and trust oversight of the source of 95+% of the world's heroin exclusively to the Karzais.  That is not going to happen.

Al Qaeda means "the Faith" if I remember correctly

It is also slang for "the toilet." No bullshit. Our puppetmasters sure have a good sense of humor.

So, that fucking idiot C-in-C goes over to Afghanistan, on the anniversary of the belated announcement of OB's death. Now that is putting your troops in harm's way. What a great way to stir up the locals.

Barry: "Now you guys. I need some lovin on my approval ratings. What can I do'?

Handler: Duurrrhhh-yup boss! Duh, I Know!, I know! We could have the cocksucker who killed their iconic leader, go over on their turf and rub their noses in it. Duh-yeah. That will impresss the people that you are a tough guy. Did I do good, huh boss, huh?"

OBummer: Let's do it. (Aside) Promote that man.

You are a cretin Obama, and led by the nose by your idiot handlers. Which idiot amoungst them came up with this bright idea. On your arrival you deliver a speach to the troops (and the Afghani "insurgents"), blathering on how some of them were not going to make it home. In fact, he comes right out and says "Some of you will die!". Hail to the Chief. You wouldn't consider (in your wildest dreams) that you would tool up and lead from the front now, would you?

His words have been prophetic. The "insurgents" are attacking Kabul as I type. 6 dead so far (don't know which side but does it matter?).

Barry..... You are a thoughtless and Murderous CUNT!!!!

My analogy is this:   Suppose some South American drug lords are in tight with the government of Texas.

 

 

 

Angry about increasing Chinese military presence in Central America, presumably there to ensure the flow of certain critical natural resources, some trainees of the drug lords –and, actually, mainly Brazilians, whom the Chinese had always thought of allies and trade partners - crash an airliner into a building in Beijing.

 

 

 

The Chinese invade Texas, remove the existing government, install their own puppet and spend a decade attempting to bring the lawless countryside under central control.

 

 

 

Meanwhile, many of the South American nationals who perpetrated the deed flee and fade into the shadows in Mexico, which is, let’s say, ostensibly China's ally.  

 

 

 

Over the course of that decade, tens of thousands of Texans die, directly or indirectly, due to Chinese military presence. Occasionally, a wedding party gets blown up, but the Chinese make half-assed apologies for it and there are no real international consequences. They disrespect the religious traditions of the indigenous Texans. There’s even an incident where they burn the Texans’ and Mexicans’ holy book.

 

 

 

What self-respecting Texan *wouldn't* pick up a WWII surplus rifle and take potshots at the Chinese military whenever possible, and plot to kill them at every turn?

Ironically the first thing I noticed when deployed there was all the little white kids running around.  I was told the Russians left more than just unexploded bombs behind

Didn't Bill Clinton invented that? Somehow I'm guessing Bush likely did the same thing.

Today is now National Loyalty Day, comrades.

http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/05/01/presidential-procl...

EDIT: I got to snip this little tidbit in here.

In order to recognize the American spirit of loyalty and the sacrifices that so many have made for our Nation, the Congress, by Public Law 85-529 as amended, has designated May 1 of each year as "Loyalty Day." On this day, let us reaffirm our allegiance to the United States of America, our Constitution, and our founding values.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2012, as Loyalty Day. This Loyalty Day, I call upon all the people of the United States to join in support of this national observance, whether by displaying the flag of the United States or pledging allegiance to the Republic for which it stands.

Sounds more like a commemoration that a celebration.

It's actually harvest time for the poppy. 

He and Karzai, in a branding exercise, are launching an exclusive Beijing Tehran Reserva version of this year's bumper crop they're calling BHOpium4U.

I pledge resistance to the flag of the United States of America and to the banana republic for which it stands, one corporation under gog, intolerable, without liberty and justice for all.

Today is now National Loyalty Day, comrades

I suppose it features a web site and a toll-free phone number for ratting out insufficiently loyal neighbors, coworkers, and relatives.

 

Benjamin Glutton's picture

The holiday was first observed in 1921[2] as "Americanization Day,"[3] and was intended to counterbalance the celebration of Labour Day on May Day (May 1), an internationally celebrated holiday for the commemoration of the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago in 1886.

Loyalty Day is celebrated with parades and ceremonies in several U.S. communities, like Batavia, Illinois, although many people in the United States remain unaware of it. Although a legal holiday, it is not a federal holiday, and is not commonly observed.

It was made an official holiday by the U.S. Congress on July 18, 1958 (Public Law 85-529).[4][5] Following the passage of this law, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed May 1, 1959 the first official observance of Loyalty Day. [6]

In 2011, and again in 2012[7] President Barack Obama issued an official proclamation of Loyalty Day on May 1 in accordance with the 1958 Congressional declaration,[8] as have many of his predecessors:

Speaking of trucks coming home soon to maintain "homeland Security"... There is a national guard armory I drive by every on my way home from work. The camo paint on the equipment has changed from desert tan to jungle green over the past few years. That color matches nicely with rural America in the summer months.

I hear russian troops are coming over to suburbia. .308 FMJ should do the trick nicely I think. Night Scopes are usefull I hear.....

What a load of misdirecting Krap!

Nobody is fearful or bothered by Russian Troops. Russia is our natural Christian Ally. Russian Troops did not murder Vicky Weaver and Sammy Weaver. If Russian Sailors get to dock in Baltimore the Vodka is on me Comrades!

I call bullshit on being in Afghanistan too,

Even if:

Really? How fucking responsible is that?

President Biden?

On second thought....

This show bores me.

Idiots.

America as entertainment.

Likely not what they had in mind.

Considering that history does rhyme; who does obama and his jolly lot of jokers most rhyme with?

I'll let you all answer that question.

Bear in mind though that obama is nothing new.

Sociopaths are a dime a dozen.

The path of least resistance is well worn.

Sounded like Nixon's 'peace with honor' speech to me.

Hansel's picture

Just so no one gets the wrong idea, from NYT:

The agreement, completed after 20 months of arduous negotiations in Washington and Kabul, pledges American support for Afghanistan for 10 years after the withdrawal of the last American soldiers at the end of 2014. More symbol than substance, it nevertheless marks a pivotal transition...

This is a campaign stunt.

So you're saying there's like another agenda here? This is to garnish votes & that's it? Wow, just wow, who could have thunk it?
