Pigs fly! Leftwingnut California Senator supports troops in Afghanistan!

Holy smoke! Did you see that flying pig? In other news, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Leftwingnut-California, has joined Republicans in urging President Obama to actually support the troops in Afghanistan instead of just talking about it.
Top Republican senators escalated their call Sunday for President Obama to grant Gen. Stanley McChrystal's request for more troops in Afghanistan, and one prominent Democrat warned that a failure to do so could jeopardize U.S. forces...

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, also said the counterinsurgency strategy pursued by McChrystal is "really critical." She said the American people don't have the stomach to stay in Afghanistan for another 10 years, but that the mission there is in "serious jeopardy" and Obama has an obligation to follow his commander's advice.

"I don't know how you put somebody in who was as crackerjack as General McChrystal, who gives the president very solid recommendations, and not take those recommendations if you're not going to pull out," Feinstein said on ABC's "This Week."

"If you don't want to take the recommendations, then you put your people in such jeopardy."

Has sanity broken out on the Left Coast? Or does serving on the Senate Intelligence Committee actually require a senator have some basic intelligence? More likely, Feinstein has heard the straight skinny from intelligence briefings that we're in danger of losing the war in Afghanistan if our troops don't get the help requested by Gen. Stanly McChrystal to properly fight the war.

Or maybe Feinstein has read some of the dispatches from Michael Yon, who has been writing about the dire straits of our troops in Afghanistan for more than a year? Nah, that pig don't fly.

But if you haven't been reading Michael Yon's dispatches from Afghanistan, his Oct. 1 report is a good starting place. He gives an overview and a timetable. Without significant changes, Yon predicts that by 2011, the Taliban will have won and Osama Bin Laden will again have a safe haven for his murderous thugs to launch worldwide Jihad against western civilization.

The Greatest Afghanistan War has deteriorated so noticeably that one can now feel the enemy's growing pulse. Each month it beats steadier, stronger, and in 2010 it will finally be born.

We're at a tipping point in Afghanistan, just as we were in Iraq. President Bush bucked all the nay-sayers and backed Gen. Petreaus when he asked for a surge. Now victory is at hand there.

The same tipping point is now in Afghanistan, but I fear Obama is going to "Cut and walk."

Pray for our nation and in particular, our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and wherever they are in harm's way. They are all that stands between us the Osama Bin Laden's murderous plans.
