Biden Says Taliban Is Not Our Enemy [They killed six on May 1, 2012]
Heritage Foundry, Morning Bell ^ | December 20, 2011

Posted on 05/02/2012 3:22:53 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

On a Saturday in late October in Kabul, Afghanistan, a car carrying explosives rammed into an armored U.S. military bus, killing 13 Americans, including five soldiers and eight civilian staff. In August, a Chinook helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans. Who was responsible? The Taliban. And who now says the Taliban is not America’s enemy? Vice President Joseph Biden.

In an interview with Newsweek, Biden laid out his — and the Administration’s view — of the Taliban:

Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That’s critical. There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy because it threatens U.S. interests. If, in fact, the Taliban is able to collapse the existing government, which is cooperating with us in keeping the bad guys from being able to do damage to us, then that becomes a problem for us.

Stupifyingly stupid! As if the Taliban, along with corruption from within, are not a threat to the government we are propping up!

I can easily name the real enemies of America.
Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Harry Reid, Steny Hoyer, Sebelius, Napolitano and the entire EPA ,Hillary Clinton and the State Department.

The Taliban we can kill off the others are the enemy within.

If the Taliban is not our enemy, then who are we fighting? Why do we have all those troops there? Who then is killing our soldiers?

Joe Biden is really questionable as our vice president. Pray hard that nothing happens to Obama.

The next republican president should appoint SloJoe as ambassador to the Taliban and build him a nice tent city embassy in the mountains.

Oh, and since he hates military, he gets no Marine guard.

(a slight rewrite)

“Look, the Viet Cong ‘per se’ is not our enemy. That’s critical. There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Viet Cong is our enemy because it threatens U.S. interests. If, in fact, the Viet Cong is able to collapse the existing government, which is cooperating with us in keeping the bad guys from being able to do damage to us, then that becomes a problem for us.” — Robert McNamara

I find it extremely difficult, if not impossible to determine which one is more stupid, Nancy Pelosi or Biden. Both of them have to be some of the dumbest people on earth and MOST UNFORTUNATE, politcal “leaders”. God help us!

Almost certainly many of the Afghan troops we are training now will go over to the Taliban just as their Afghan Army grandfathers did when the Russians left.

Credible reports are coming in constantly to that end, Pakhtuns will kill their Hazara officers next.

Stop all training now and evacuate everyone. Everyone that has been in theater, that I know, agrees.

We are only creating a more powerful and educated Taliban. Many other Afghan soldiers will join warlords and the coming civil war will only be bloodier.

What are we doing? This is madness, educating such war-like peoples in the science of war, madness.
