Af-Pak Fever

The Obamaites go to war

by Justin Raimondo, March 29, 2009

"The idea that anything has really changed, at least in the realm of foreign policy, with the ascension of Barack Obama to the White House, is now completely debunked by the administration’s latest pronouncement on the "Af-Pak" war. I quote from the "white paper" that accompanied the president’s spiel.......

They told me to give Obama a chance, that he’s just gotten into office and it takes time to effect real change: yes, well, that approach may have had some credibility in the beginning, but now that we’re approaching the end of the first 100 days and our new president has made his first major foreign policy pronouncement, the time to give Obama the benefit of every doubt is over. What he is proposing is more than a mere "surge" – it is a rising tsunami of unimaginable proportions, one that will make the Iraq war seem like a minor swell. "
