Back in the old country, I was always giving my mother flowers and getting them myself.

Imagine my surprise when finding out this INTERNATIONAL day was practically unknown here.

I guess last year’s elections were my answer why.

To those who care, Happy March 8! To you, your mothers, wives, daughters or girlfirends!

I wonder how our new upcoming friendship with the Taliban will fit in the celebration?

Seems Obama’s favoritest war is not going so swimingly

Asked if the United States was winning in Afghanistan, a war he effectively adopted as his own last month by ordering an additional 17,000 troops sent there, Mr. Obama replied flatly, β€œNo.”

And Moveon should be “proud”

But now he has started a review of policy toward Afghanistan and Pakistan intended to find a new strategy, and he signaled that reconciliation could emerge as an important initiative, mirroring the strategy used by Gen. David H. Petraeus in Iraq.(Betrayus?)

That being – reaching to “moderate Taliban”

Obama Ponders Outreach to Elements of Taliban

Which is a bit hypocritical, considering that the

administration officials have criticized the Pakistani government for its own reconciliation deal with local Taliban leaders in the Swat Valley, where Islamic law has been imposed and radical figures hold sway. Pakistani officials have sought to reassure administration officials that their deal was not a surrender to the Taliban, but rather an attempt to drive a wedge between hard-core Taliban leaders and local Islamists.

The wholw war in Afghanistan was a mistake – police action should have been undertaken to find the terrorists responsible for 9.11.

But the candidate who “made a speech” decided to boost the forgotten war, describing this war as

“a cause that he clearly believes in,” said MacKay.

I guess come Match, what he believed in November is under the bus. Not the war he used to know.

I’ll be glad to see this war over – now good luck with your new friends! By all means, explain to them what you believe in!

Because as to what used to be our old friends, the Brits

A well-connected Washington figure, who is close to members of Mr Obama’s inner circle, expressed concern that Mr Obama had failed so far to “even fake an interest in foreign policy”.

and all this is because

Sources close to the White House say Mr Obama and his staff have been “overwhelmed” by the economic meltdown and have voiced concerns that the new president is not getting enough rest.

Of course B0bots found an ironic way to deal with this: blame the foreigners!

1.Β The British burned the White House to the ground in 1814

These prissy Brit publications should be grateful we even allowed the PM into our White House.

(I still remember when “not ready on day one” was considered racist)

Maybe those Wednesday night parties and Camp David weekends can help with that.

I hear that the Taliban guys could be more fun at parties than those stuck up brits. I can see them and Jon Favreau exchanging jokes….
