On my previous post I was cautiously optimistic that Obama would have the courage and vision to get the troops out of Afghanistan. But based on his recent news conference they will in fact increase the troop level by 30,000 troops. I have long suspected Obama to be merely a politician, and now based on these latest developments I am positive he is merely a figure head. His caving in to these blood thirsty jackals shows a lack of testicular fortitude; he has shown himself to have the backbone of a worm. This coupled with his disastrous response to the economic crises has proven that this President is just the same as Bush but with a better speech. I am not surprised nor disappointed we just need to wake up and become responsible for ourselves and change this world.
