    White House Moves Away From 2011 Afghanistan Withdrawal Timeline

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:31 pm

    Isn’t it interesting that we’re still in Iraq, and Obama is stepping back from his 2011 withdrawal date for Afghanistan, yet we hear nothing from the anti-war crowd in the U.S. No one is camped outside Obama’s residence in protest of the war. There are no burnings of Obama in effigy. Not a peep. The sheeple on the left aren’t really anti-war, they’re just anti-republican….a movement with no real principals, values, or morals. Sheep.

    The Obama administration has decided to walk away from what it once touted as key deadlines in the Afghanistan war in an effort to de-emphasize the president’s pledge that he would begin withdrawing U.S. forces in July 2011, administration and military officials said Tuesday.

    The new policy will be on display next week during a NATO conference in Lisbon, Portugal, where the administration hopes to introduce a timeline that calls for the withdrawal of U.S. and NATO forces from Afghanistan by 2014, according to three senior officials and others speaking anonymously as a matter of policy. Afghan President Hamid Karzai has said Afghan troops could provide their security by then.

    The Pentagon also has decided not to announce specific dates for handing security responsibility for several Afghan provinces to local officials and instead intends to work out a more vague definition of transition…

    Suddenly Obama understands the stupidity of announcing to your enemy when you plan to leave. Things look a whole lot different when you’re the one in charge I guess. Too bad more Congress critters don’t understand this.

    Wave of bomb blasts target Christians in Baghdad

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:01 pm

    It looks like we saved a bunch of Iraqis from the hell of living under Saddam Hussein so Muslim terrorists could declare open season on Christians. In a post on the internet the terrorist group responsible for this latest bombing of a Christian church, as well as previous attacks, has promised an all out war on minority Christians in Iraq. Most Christians have already had to flee their Iraqi homeland because America did little to protect them after major combat operations ended. Lets pray that policy changes, and our forces start protecting the Christian communities and churches in Iraq. Iraq may be an Islamic state, but Christians have historic ties to the land that go back long before Muhammad concocted his murderous religion.

    A series of bomb blasts targeting Christians in Baghdad has killed at least three people and injured two dozen more, security sources have said.

    At least 14 roadside bombs were detonated and a mortar round was fired in Christian districts across the Iraqi capital last night and early this morning.

    An interior ministry source told Reuters that the attacks were a “continuation” of the massacre at Our Lady of Salvation church which killed dozens of worshippers last week.

    According to one report, today’s bombings targeted the family of one of the victims of the massacre.

    The Islamic State of Iraq – an al-Qaeda front group – claimed responsibility for the Baghdad church attack and warned in a message published on militant websites that more attacks would follow. “We will open upon them the doors of destruction and rivers of blood,” the statement said.

    The latest bombings follow protests by Iraqi Christians in Sweden, Australia, Britain, the Netherlands, Germany and America who urged the Iraqi government to do more to protect the country’s minorities.

    About 300 protesters at the “Black March” in London called on Britain to remember its historic debt to Iraq’s Aramaic-speaing Assyrian Christians, who fought alongside Britain in two world wars.

    Obama Debt panel recommends cuts in Social Security

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 5:22 pm

    While Federal employees pay skyrockets past $150,000 a year, Obama’s dept panel is recommending cuts in social security, and raising the retirement age.

    I realize we’re all going to have to make sacrifices, if we’re going to get our massive debt and out of control spending on a sustainable path, but, instead of cutting the cost of living increases for those on fixed incomes, why not consider cutting the huge wage increases for government employees? The answer to that question is simple. Politicians know the unions that get those wages for federal employees won’t send them huge sums of money for their next campaign, if they do the right thing and keep government wages more in line with the private sector.

    I guess we can hope the Republicans we elected on November second understand the message the voters were really sending. We weren’t condoning or supporting the Republican’s policies or past records. We are giving them a second chance to prove that they can live up to their party’s platform, and listen to the voters who elected them. I have a feeling our hopes may be misplaced, unfortunately, and we should all prepare for the worst.

    A draft proposal by the deficit commission suggests curbing Social Security benefits and raising the retirement age.

    The co-chairmen of the panel appointed by President Obama to cut the U.S. deficit recommend raising the retirement
    age to 68. It is currently 67 years for retirees to receive full benefits. The panel leaders also propose reducing the annual cost-of-living increases in Social Security.

    Update: I just noticed the Democrats conveniently put an out in their recommendations for Obama’s beloved union members:

    “A “hardship exception” would be provided for members if certain occupations where older retirement would be unrealistic, Reuters reported”.

    In other words, union members will get to retire early with full benefits. Some things never change. Strike that….nothing ever changes in politics.
