The world severely criticized George W. Bush for his wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but now that Barack Obama is escalating the war in Afghanistan the vast majority of those same critics are strangely quiet. CBS News is reporting that Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama has made the decision to send nearly 40,000 more U.S. soldiers to Afghanistan over the course of 2010. The report CBS filed about this decision put it this way.....
"Informed sources tell CBS news he intends to give General McCrystal most, if not all, the additional troops he is asking for."
So will anti-war liberals stand up and get a backbone, or will they stand down just because their hero Barack Obama is in office?
Of course for the vast majority of them it will be the latter.
This just shows the massive hypocrisy of politics in America these days.
Very few people stand up for what they believe in anymore.
Very few people truly care about political issues.
Instead, most Americans follow their favorite political celebrities with cult-like devotion.
