For all of you who actually thought that Obama was going to be different and bring "Change" to Washington and to end the war ... think again.

With regard to the "War on Terror" - it is really more of the same old same old.

Consider this from the so called anti-war candidate and Nobel Peace Prize winner:

Obama: 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan

Obama: "We Did Not Ask for This Fight"
Bush: "We Did Not Seek This Conflict"

Obama: "New Attacks are Being Plotted as I Speak"
Bush: "At This Moment ... Terrorists are Planning New Attacks"

Obama: "Our Cause is Just, Our Resolve Unwavering"
Bush: "Our Cause is Just, Our Coalition [is] Determined"

Obama: "This Is No Idle Danger, No Hypothetical Threat"
Bush: "The Enemies of Freedom Are Not Idle"

Obama: "We Have No Interest in Occupying Your Country"
Bush: "I Wouldn't Be Happy if I Were Occupied Either"

Obama must have used Bush's speech writer.
(Actually, the puppetmasters just have a new puppet)

and here is Ron Paul's comment on the Afghan build-up.

Change? Really?
Same "stuff" different day.

Meanwhile, has anyone considered that we are training Iraqis and Afghanis and the probability is pretty good that some of them will ultimately some day use this training against us. Are they truly going to be able to maintain law and order and good government after we leave? or will we have to have a permanent presence? The people have to want liberty for themselves ... it cannot be given to them. Our model of government cannot just be replicated somewhere else because we think it should be there. Come to think of it, we don't even adhere to our own Constitution anymore anyway.

Sure - there are bad people in the world and we must protect ourselves from them... but is this really the way to do it? It is seemingly becoming a war we cannot win (in the way we have won wars in the past) and we certainly cannot afford.

And by the way, while everyone is now pre-occupied with Obama's speech and Tiger Woods' affairs - what is happening to the Senate healthcare debate? Can you say - DIVERSION?

Finally, what is our government doing to oust the Al Quaida terrorists who they know already live among us in THIS country? Oh right... removing our rights bit by bit and searching little old ladies at the airports in order to "make us safe". (I forgot)

No Change here (except for wealth redistribution and other economic mayhem) ... move along.
