McChrystal will get turned down again if he wants to be
General McChrystal, Obama’s Afghanistan czar, requested 40,000 troops a few months ago. Obama hemmed and hawed, and decided he’d let McChrystal have 30,000 troops if he promised to surrender and withdraw sometime in July 2011.
Now, with confidence, McChrystal asserted:
But he said, “I will always provide my best military advice” and if conditions warrant, he would recommend more troops.
Now, the situation as it stands now is IF we are doing badly in July 2011, we stay. If we are doing well, we leave.
How much you wanna guess the Taliban will raise hell until about June of 2011 and then take a vacation?
Obama will declare victory in July 2011, and Afghanistan will fall one month later.
