The Blade's twisted priorities

There's something very telling about today's Blade, especially in the second section. There's a page 1, above the fold article about a dog recovering from a gunshot wound, complete with large photo. Meanwhile, on page 2 they stick an article about a local National Guardsman recovering from a suicide bombing in Afghanistan.

Sums up the Blades twisted priorities nicely, don't you think?

AP source: Obama focusing on al-Qaida, not Taliban
By JENNIFER LOVEN, AP White House Correspondent Jennifer Loven, Ap White House Correspondent 35 mins ago
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is prepared to accept some Taliban involvement in Afghanistan's political future and appears inclined to send only as many more U.S. troops to Afghanistan as are needed to keep al-Qaida at bay, a senior administration official said Thursday.

Where is the "outrage" over the "deadliest month for U.S. forces in the nearly eight-year war."?

Where is that Liberal screeching about 'bringing the troops home alive' and how all the Libs are "concerned" over Americans being "put in harms way"?

Where is that Indignance you Libs had with the Iraq war? Why aren't you protesting the surge in Afghanistan that is getting Americans KILLED AT A RECORD PACE?

Read it for yourselves,  you warmongers.

"More babies are not produced by many men sleeping with one woman"

A hair-raising peek into the Taliban and tribal influence in Afghanistan in the latest Rolling Stone Magazine does not give one optimism that either McCain or Obama really understands what we are up against in that country. More troops will not produce the desired result.

"we're not going to win this war."

Decisive military victory in Afghanistan is impossible and the Taliban may well be part of a long-term solution for the country, the senior British commander in Afghanistan was quoted as saying Sunday. The Sunday Times newspaper quoted Brig. Mark Carleton-Smith as saying that "we're not going to win this war."
