(NN&V Staff) – “You shouldn’t be in it if you’re unwilling to win it,” said Sharron Angle on Tuesday in an appeal to a vacillating administration concerning the effort in Afghanistan.
“The real reason the current administration will never secure real-world respect is because they own this big bat that limps lifelessly over their shoulder. When the pitcher throws the ball down the middle of your plate, you better swing or you’re out.
“The Commander-in-Chief needs to accept the fact that we are dealing with an enemy that hates us,” Angle continues, “and there is no compromise that will eliminate their desire to eliminate us. We did not become the strongest most respected nation on the planet by blinking at the plate — if we did, America would be bowing to a king.”
Angle, aconservative Republican candidate running to replace Harry Reid in the U.S. Senate, said Obama appeared to be wavering even though he previously described the war in Afghanistan as a “war of necessity,” and an effort in which he pledged to provide the equipment and support needed to get the job done.
“Due to the calculated veracity concerning the threat to America’s national security if al-Qaeda and individual cooperating Taliban factions operate unimpeded, I trust this president will conscientiously discount any unconventional statements from the ‘Obama Whisperer’ that the ‘war is lost,’” said Angle. “The president needs to accept the realism that ‘cut and run’ can be a dangerous military option concerning the safety of our soldiers and the safekeeping of our country.”
Angle says she is hearing from several sources in D.C that Obama, in an effort to appear compromising, was considering splitting the difference by sending fewer troops than what General Stanley McChrystal, US commander in Afghanistan, is requesting.
“Splitting the difference is a half-hearted decision that would risk the safety of those dedicated American soldiers who have invested their whole heart when it comes to protecting us. It’s unmerited to allow our troops to be suspended midpoint on foreign soil while serving under a vacationing Commander-in-Chief who appears anemic concerning military objectives. If the goal in Afghanistan remains the same as before, then the President needs to listen to what the military brass is advising rather than tolerating suggestions from ‘Cut-&-Run Harry’ or the ‘hope & wait’ strategy of Joe Biden.
“When it comes to acknowledging tactical evaluations concerning Afghanistan, I favor accepting General McChrystal’s boots-on-the-ground assessment rather than the judgment of the Beltway-buddies Biden and Reid, and if this current administration chooses to drag out the decision-making process concerning the commitment of a viable strategy then they encourage the posture level of the enemy that this administration is weak and indecisive, a gauge they use against us to fortify their ability to increase recruitment levels of the Taliban and al-Qaeda.”
Angle said that the goals of the enemy appeared clearer and more defined than the goals of this current administration.
“This administration must not forget who they are dealing with here,” Angle stated flatly. “The enemy seeks to restore the Taliban to power, they seek to undermine Pakistan, and they seek to execute attacks on American soil. It will be difficult for the US to deal with these specified threats unless this administration can demonstrate the competence of properly utilizing on-site intelligence-seeking forces and the necessary support that is required to safely carry out those missions.”
