The chip on Obama’s shoulder

Military affairs analyst Ralph Peters’ take on Obamalot’s Israel policy:

“It’s become a credo of the left-wing that Israel is always the oppressor,” Peters continued, “and that the Palestinian terrorists are freedom fighters, etc. … Obama’s mother [was] extremely left, his university chums are on the left, he spent 20 years with the Rev. Wright – all of their doctrines say that the Palestinians are wonderful and that the Israelis are basically Nazis… I think that the President has gotten that by osmosis… This is our first anti-Israeli President; it’s bewildering and astonishing.”

UPDATE:   Is it really a chip, or more evidence of a serious personality disorder? We’d better hope it’s no more than ignorant arrogance.

Afghanistan: Time to leave?

When even military commentator Col. Ralph Peters says it’s time to cut and run, well, maybe it’s time to cut and run. Either that or keep trying to get the Russians and Pakistanis to help us build Disneyworld on the Kabul River. As for Barry losing face? Well, he can still blame Bush.

UPDATE:  Barry’s base is already turning up the heat on him. Wanna be a war criminal, Barry, or a peacenik?
