(Hopefully this song will be stuck in your head as yer kicking ass today-try to find the US Army Special Forces sheild in the video…yea, its in there)

Should I stay or should I go now? If I go there will be trouble An’ if I stay it will be double So come on and let me know is it time for us to go? We are making a difference (see bullet holes in Bin Laden) but we have also suffered 1624 losses of America’s best  total to date.

The “Spring Offensive” wasn’t all that this year, or last or really the year before that. Its more like a spring…hang out than “offensive” (insert big monster truck announcer voice here).

Don’t Call Us Occupiers When We’re Dying for Your Country, U.S. Ambassador tells Karzai. For Kazai to call us that means he has a different view on why we are there. Has he thought out what will happen when we leave?  Its amazing how many countries demand for the US to leave but when shit hits the fan or  a natural disaster hits, they arnt talking so loud.

America, come to my aid now and dump a shit-ton of cash into my country then get out once you have unassed my world

How about you say please? Then we will leave when we are damn ready to leave, how about that? Especially after we have sacrificed our warriors and dumped a bunch of cash into your problem. The President is advertising a massive withdrawal in the near future with the military favoring a gradual reduction in troops over time but other advisers advocating a significant decrease in the coming months. Do I want my kids fighting this same OEF war? No, I want to finish it on my watch. But finish it means doing it right so the next generation doesn’t have to fight it. Pulling the legs out from under our warriors to please the few will spell disaster for the warriors over there.

 

“Retiring Defense Secretary Robert Gates has said he believes the initial drawdown should be "modest"

Obama has tripled the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan since taking office, bringing the total there to about 100,000. The 30,000 troop surge he announced at the end of 2009 came with the condition that he would start bringing forces home in July 2011.”

Perhaps using the Iraq model will be used for Afghanistan as far as reducing amounts of troops to set deadlines. However, the juice has got to be worth the squeeze and a lot of that juice is going to be measured by how far the Afg Security Forces are prepared.

So as the group called the “Clash” sing, “Should I stay or should I go now?”

Time for a Cgar!

  1. Stay or go? A question I’m not qualified to answer. The only people I do trust to make the decision are those now serving or have served that hold the security of our nation as their number one priority.

  2. “America, come to my aid now and dump a shit-ton of cash into my country then get out once you have unassed my world” The quote of the year! Sadly, that seems to be the thinking around the world. And as far as the decision to get out of Afghanistan, that should be made by the military, the ones on the ground, not some talking head in D.C. Semper Fi.

  3. In his book “Secrets of Closing the Sale,” Zig Ziglar states that selling is “transference of feeling.” Negativity of any type will cause you to lose sales. But, if you enjoy making your work, if you’re glad when you enter your studio and excited when you finish a piece, you can share those feelings with your customers. Bring the enthusiasm that comes from creating things with you to the art festival, and make your booth a happy place. The more you worry about selling the less effective you’ll be at it.

    I wonder the same thing everyday. They keep me motivated. I figure if they can do what they do what I have to do is no big thing.
