    - Even before he outlines his strategy on Afghanistan Tuesday night, President Barack Obama is taking flak from his fellow liberals on his reported decision to send more U.S. troops to Afghanistan.

    On Monday, in an open letter to President Obama, liberal film-maker Michael Moore asks Obama if he really wants to become the "new war president.” Moore tells Obama, "It is not your job to do what the generals tell you to do."

    In fact, Moore writes that Obama should have fired Gen. Stanley McChrystal when the general went public with his call for up to 40,000 additional U.S. troops. "Let me be blunt: We love our kids in the armed services, but we f*#&in' hate these generals," Moore said.

    Gen. McChrystal’s request for additional troops came in a confidential assessment that was leaked to the Washington Post in September. McChrystal later spoke to the CBS program “60 Minutes” about the progress of war. He called for “a dramatic change in how we operate.”

    In agreeing to the general’s request to send more troops to Afghanistan, President Obama will "destroy the hopes and dreams so many millions have placed in you," Moore writes. He says the “multitude of young people" who helped elect Obama president will become "disillusioned cynics" when they realize that "all politicians are alike."

    "I simply can't believe you're about to do what they say you are going to do. Please say it isn't so," Moore wrote.

    President Obama, in a prime-time speech to be delivered at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point Tuesday night, is expected to announce he is sending 30,000 to 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan, bringing the total number to around 100,000. He’s also expected to lay out a clear exit strategy for the troops, including a renewed focus on training Afghan forces to fight for their own country.

    In fact, Obama campaigned on a promise to end the Iraq war and to shift resources – including more U.S. troops -- to Afghanistan, which he described as the central front in the war on terror

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    "Let me be blunt: We love our kids in the armed services, but we f*#&in' hate these generals," Moore said.
    Forget blunt, work on fixing stupid. These Generals you say you hate are from the same pool as those you "claim to love." I suspect you don't love anything that isn't a giant cheesburger but that seems obvious. The Generals you claim to hate are the very ones leading those troops and ensuring your right to be the flatulant lardass we all have come to dispise. Why do you hate America Michael Moron?:mad:

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

    Because in America he can get away with it.

    The first sign of impending serfdom is when you trade your self determination, your individual responsibility and your vote to the Government in return for subsistance. -LS-
