Down the Toliet: Washington Post Edition

Well at least the Washington Post editorial board is honest (my emphasis)–it’s all about US control of the ME and the black gold sucka:

Yet Mr. Obama’s account of his strategic vision remains eccentric. He insists that Afghanistan is “the central front” for the United States, along with the border areas of Pakistan. But there are no known al-Qaeda bases in Afghanistan, and any additional U.S. forces sent there would not be able to operate in the Pakistani territories where Osama bin Laden is headquartered. While the United States has an interest in preventing the resurgence of the Afghan Taliban, the country’s strategic importance pales beside that of Iraq, which lies at the geopolitical center of the Middle East and contains some of the world’s largest oil reserves. If Mr. Obama’s antiwar stance has blinded him to those realities, that could prove far more debilitating to him as president than any particular timetable.

Translation:  How are we going to unilaterally own the Middle East and all its oil once we leave our occupation from its center point?

Wow.

  1. WOW indeed, did he just marginalize seven years worth of propaganda, rhetoric, rationales, about the terrorist and those who give aide of comfort, Osama, and Al Qaeda.
