WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House said President Barack Obama could use an unusual evening war council session Monday to lock in his long-awaited decision on whether to commit tens of thousands of new U.S. forces to the stalemated war in Afghanistan.
Military officials and others said they expect Obama to settle on a middle-ground option that would deploy an eventual 32,000 to 35,000 U.S. forces to the 8-year-old conflict.
That rough figure has stood as the most likely option since before Obama's last large war council meeting earlier this month, when he tasked military planners with rearranging the timing and makeup of some of the deployments.
Like any lawyer, the president has decided that with a little reading and a few questions answered he can out-general the generals. The commander submits a request for 40K and, upon consideration, the lawyer decides the commander really only needs 32K to get the job done. Efficiency!
The proper response here, as any retard on the short bus could tell you, is one of two things:
1) "40,000? Hell! take 80,000, kill everybody, and be done by Christmas."
2) "Screw that! Everybody back on the bus, we're goin' home."
Obama is an idiot.
