Dithering is strength

Candidate Obama argued Afghanistan was the "right war" (although, remarkably, the by-conventional-wisdom-inept-and-incompetent-president Bush was apparently able to win the "wrong" war -- in Iraq; proof-positive is it's no longer in the news).

But the process of making a decision on his commanding general's 30 August 09 recommendation has, according to an AP story, "stiffened Obama’s resolve to seek information and options beyond military planning, officials said, though a substantial troop increase is still likely."

Hmm. Stiffened his resolve -- to dither.

Read Jules Crittenden's whole piece, "Advance to the rear".

As Glenn Reynolds says, "WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, DITHERING IS STRENGTH."

Please also read "The failure to plan is the plan."
