Barack Obama Watch: Troops Into Pakistan?

Democratic presidential hopeful, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., delivers a speech about terrorism, Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2007, at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington.

In a speech about terrorism, Senator Barack Obama that he would possibly send troops into Pakistan to hunt down terrorists.

The quotes:

“Let me make this clear,” Obama said in a speech prepared for delivery at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. “There are terrorists holed up in those mountains who murdered 3,000 Americans. They are plotting to strike again. It was a terrible mistake to fail to act when we had a chance to take out an al-Qaida leadership meeting in 2005. If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won’t act, we will.”

Kiss Barack good-bye…….

In an attempt to look MACHO in contrast to Hillary, Obama has taken naivety to a new level.

Hillary trapped Barack by calling attention to his lack of foreign policy experience and maturity.

Obama’s speech comes the week after his rivalry with New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton erupted into a public fight over their diplomatic intentions.

Obama said he would be willing to meet leaders of rogue states like Cuba, North Korea and Iran without conditions, an idea that Clinton criticized as irresponsible and naive. Obama responded by using the same words to describe Clinton’s vote to authorize the Iraq war and called her “Bush-Cheney lite.”

Now, he won’t even make a Vice President candidate for Hillary.

Wonder what the LEFT thinks of him now?

Well, they are already calling Obama a NEO-CON favoring pre-emptive war.


Jerome Armstrong, lefty extraordinaire over at MyDD calls out Barack:

Basically, a continuation of the Bush doctrine of unilateral pre-emptive attacks in the mid-east, with Obama adding Pakistan to the list.

And this:

Update: Obama: Calls for Unilateral War Against Pakistan

This follows up on something he said in 2004, when he suggested that he would support launching missles against Pakistan and Iran to prevent extremists from getting nuclear weapons.

Who’s acting like Bush now?

For me the most disturbing part is that he is calling not for an international coalition or increased assistance to the Pakistani government, but for a military invasion of a sovereign nation.

Barack Obama called the invasion of Iraq a “stupid war.” How is this smarter? Aren’t there better options than sending an already-stretched military into a hostile nation with a moderate government?

Flap thinks Obama will have a difficult time this weekend in Chicago at the Daily Kos Convention.

Will Kos Kids BOO the latest Neo-Con Bush chimp?
