The Anti-WarRepublican Movement is Silent

“We’ve got to get the job done there and that requires us to have enough troops so that we’re not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous pressure over there.”
-President Obama, Aug 2007

Where are the peace activists? 153 killed in the first week of Obama's watch....and Code Pink says nothing.

Afghanis are furious at the U.S., claiming civilian casualties due to an airstrike. President Obama threatens to escalate the war in Afghanistan with a troop surge. Is this the way he plans to win hearts and minds? Why isn't the peace movement up in arms, demanding immediate withdrawal?

There were 36 recorded cross-border attacks and attempts into Pakistan in 2008; does President Obama wish to continue the trend?
At least 21 people were killed during an air strike in Pakistan under President Barack Obama’s administration, several of which were civilian, including children.
(according to The Long War Journal, twenty-nine of these [2008] attacks took place after Aug. 31. There were only 10 recorded strikes during 2006 and 2007 combined.)

And World Can't Wait appears to be silent and waiting....for change?.....when will they protest "STOP OBAMA WAR CRIMES NOW!"???

His EO's on Guantanamo and Interrogations are meaningless rhetoric on paper.

Meanwhile, they are probably tickled pink that President Obama wants to talk with Iran...who could have nukes before the end of the year.

And this is only after week one. (And only in regards to foreign policy matters).

Thank God "change we can believe in" doesn't seem to apply to foreign policy to much. I'd be pissed if we stopped the Drone attacks in Pakistan. It does suck though that the idiots blasted Bush daily and they give the messiah a pass for doing the same thing.

Because they are Liberals. Liberals dont have to play by the same rules as Conservatives.

Shoprat..except obama will NEVER be blamed!

Great point here, Sparky...THE MEDIA is silent. They're still too busy figuring out if Michelle's yellow outfit at the swearing-in was yellow for the ribbons for soldiers to come home!

With more posts like this, MAYBE people will wake up to the degree of hypocrisy? come to think of it,... naaa, they won't!
