The U.S. ALWAYS falls short when the lowlifes, morons and buffoons on Capitol Hill decide that they are going to tell the military how to fight a war.

The Obamadork falls short of min standards for a sentient human. He (or, it) is the problem, not the U.S.

Nice. I’m sure the families of the people who laid down their lives appreciate that one.

That piece of crap. The only part of the war in Afghanistan that has fallen short is his bloody rules of engagement.

Breathing deeply.

Bronco Bama is setting the stage for a bug-out, in the manner of Viet Nam. Most of the combat troops left in an orderly manner in 1973, but the remaining installations were driven out by a rout some two years later, on April 30, 1975, in a totally graceless and chaotic rush for the last helicopter out. The embassy was overrun and stragglers met with who knows what fate.

This is what lies in the future for us in Afghanistan. What the heck, in a less emphatic way, it is happening to us in Iraq. And it happened in Benghazi.

Nobody seems ready to pick up that phone that has been ringing almost endlessly and relentlessly at the White Hut.

0bama really knows how to boost troop morale, doesn’t he? I’m surprised he didn’t say “fallen short, except for the gay soldiers..”

Afghanistan is Obama’s war. He’s the one who said that was where the real war was. Most of the fallen heroes died there on his watch. Barely made the news. He’s a poor excuse for a Commander in Chief. Most unworthy person to ever hold the office.

“Bronco Bama is setting the stage for a bug-out, in the manner of Viet Nam.”

Yes, and 38 years after their glorious victory over the Yankee oppressors, the Vietnamese willingly and cheerfully have their children make tennis shoes for our children.

I think that is kind of funny.

Perhaps that's because Benghazi Barry keeps undermining our troops!

Couldn’t agree more! He embodies “falling short.” Our soldiers have gone above and beyond, even with his destructive ROE. What a rotten weasel.

When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled... Bravely taking to his feet, he beat a very brave retreat...

Bravest of the brave, sir Barry.

This POS POTUS is telling those who gave their lives for HIS WAR that they fell short? Somebody should remind him they didn’t fall short, the fell DEAD!

Hussein the Saudi tool has been arming the jihad.

His term has been marked by a spike of our warrior deaths in Afghanistan.

His aide de camp and ghostwriter Bill Ayers toasted Chavez in Caracas in 2006, "Viva la revolucion bolivariana" and now Chavez' bolivariana troops act as extensions of Castroismo sin Fidel.

"Gooks in the wire; it's a lovely war," was the Colonel's lament in Platoon (1988).

Treason never prospers
What's the reason
If it prospers
None dare call it treason

Behold the Islamo-Commie from Fake-istan, the taqiya closet queen riding the heroin trade to flexibility with Stalinophile Vlad

We here knew this was the road ahead in 2007

The Twelfth Imam has Big Plans

"So, you know, I think that, have we achieved everything that some might have imagined us achieving in the best of scenarios? Probably not."

Emphasis added to illustrate what an absolute JELLYFISH our pathetic president is! He can't even say outright that he fell short, he has to weasel-word it to sound like he accomplished everything he could, and that's plenty good enough. Anyone who thinks differently is part of some fringe that had wildly unrealistic expectations. Wipe his hands, move on to the next cocktail party to schmooze with Hollywood starlets, and forget about the whole thing.

Thanks Pride_of_the_Bluegrass.

Zero’s ROE, Zero’s Failures — but what he’s really talking about is his blaming US servicepeople for their murders by jihadist a-holes. He talks that way because he supports jihad, in particular, against the United States.

And my bet is that 2 years after the fact, the taliban will own the place, just like the North Viets did after we pulled out.

Maybe then the Afghani's will understand what we were trying to accomplish for them when they have to grow their beards and women are all ignorant and in burkas again.

Oh, come ON! zer0 the Bronco Bambi never makes a single mistake. Are you saying he’s NOT the messiah?

Nothing is ever his fault.

He’s never even seen “the buck” because he closes his eyes, and those of the presstitutes, as he passes it on to anyone but himself.

Why, he’s just ducky!
