“Obama Orders More Troops To Afghanistan”
by Julian Barnes and Greg Miller:

Reporting from Washington -- President Obama ordered his first major deployment of U.S. combat troops Tuesday, authorizing 17,000 additional soldiers and Marines for Afghanistan in what he described as an urgent bid to stabilize a deteriorating and neglected country.
The deployment will double the number of American combat brigades in the nation at a time of tension with Afghanistan's weak government over civilian casualties of the campaign against the increasingly bold Taliban, and concern over neighboring Pakistan's ability to fight Islamic militants based there.

In a statement announcing the troop increase, Obama directed veiled criticism at the Bush administration, noting that a request from Army Gen. David D. McKiernan, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, had been pending for months.

"This increase is necessary to stabilize a deteriorating situation in Afghanistan, which has not received the strategic attention, direction and resources it urgently requires," Obama said.
. . .

In dispatching the troops for duty in Afghanistan, Obama also expressed concern about the threat from extremists elsewhere in the region, including in havens in Pakistan.

“It’s Six Of Obama, Half A Dozen Of McCain”
by Stephen T. McCarthy:

In the cover story “Apples To Oranges?” of the July 21st issue of The New American magazine, writer Charles Scaliger accurately says in comparing the proposed policies of Obama to McCain that the presidential contenders have “been winnowed down to two polished posers who offer the American public, yet again, not a choice but an echo.” And I’ll add that even a few of the seeming differences are just a matter of “telling the necessary lies” in order to appease the targeted constituency. For example, those folks who really believe that Obama will recall the troops from Iraq are setting themselves up for a major disappointment: if he ever truly does pull them out of Iraq it will only be to establish them somewhere else in the Middle East. Whether you elect Obama or McCain, the soldiers are not coming home anytime soon, so just get used to the idea!

MASTER OF CEREMONIES: “Holy cow! How ‘bout THAT, Ladies and Gentlemen? How does he do it? How does he do it? How does Stephen know the future? How can he accurately predict today what will happen in days to come? This boy is a wonder! A wonder, I tell you! And not only that, but it doesn’t take TWO people to write his Blog Bits, unlike the L.A. Times which apparently requires a team effort just to write a single news article. Put your hands together for The Uncanny Stephen! How ever does he do it?”

MANNY: “The gods have come down and visited the Earth! Stephen must be a god!”

MOE: “No, he’s psychic! A superpsychic!”

JACK: “He’s no psychic. He just got lucky, that’s all.”

MOE: “Nah. Stephen’s just a little smarter than the rest of you stooges.”

LARRY: “Maybe he’s just a very lucky, slightly smart, superpsychic god?”

CURLY: “A-Woo-Woo-Woo!”

MASTER OF CEREMONIES: “Well, folks, why don’t we simply ask him? Stephen! Tell us, how were you able to foretell the future 6 months in advance? How did you know that Barack Obama would continue to deploy American troops in the Middle East well before he was elected president? Back when he was still giving the American People the impression that he didn't approve of all this war business?”

STEPHEN T. McCARTHY: “No, people, you’ve got it all wrong! I’m NONE of those things you said I am. It’s very smple really; anyone can do it. All you gotta do is turn off the television set and back slowly away from it. Burn all your comic, romance, and murder mystery detective books. Then carefully and gently pull your head out of your... [Assuming you know where I was going with this, I’ll leave the rest of the sentence unwritten.] And now, start spending your valuable time reading REAL big boy and big girl books. You know (or maybe you don’t), informative nonfiction by serious researchers and scholarly writers.

“Anyone can generally know the future in advance; anyone can do it once they come to understand that both political parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, are just puppets of one, unelected, powerful body: the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). It’s easy to know where we’re headed because ALL roads lead to the single global government of ‘The New World Order’ being promoted by the CFR. And the Imperialistic American Agenda isn’t going to go away just because a Black Marxist has replaced a White Marxist in the White House. The Red, White and Bully isn’t about to release the stranglehold on Abu, Achmed, and the Mad Muhammad simply because they’re crying “Uncle (Sam).”

“Look, Dogg, if you want to snoop around and discover what’s planned for the immediate future, learn about the CFR’s ‘New World Order’ goals. And if you want to know what’s in the immediate future’s future, then read your Holy Bible – it’s all in there! God hasn’t left us in the dark. Or if you want a crash course on wha’ be hadnin’, then watch two programs: Aaron Russo’s ‘AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM’ and ‘WHEN GREED TURNS TO FEAR.’ The latter is a DVD available free of charge from I.C.A., and while it’s certainly not the most entertaining presentation in the world, it is loaded with important information you need to be aware of. Little or nothing in the future should take us by surprise.

“You don’t need to ‘Hope’ for ‘Change’ because change - REAL change - has been PROMISED… and promised by God, not by some very human god wannabe (who still refuses to show America his birth certificate thereby proving his Constitutional right to hold the highest office in the land). But that’s how I successfully predicted the future about our troops in the Middle East. I essentially killed my TV many years ago and turned my attention to Big Boy Books instead. That’s all there was to it: a lot of research and a little thought.”
