Our wars are expanding

Obama secretly deploys US special forces to 75 countries across world - Times Online

Quote:
President Obama has secretly implemented a huge increase in the number of US special forces carrying out search-and-destroy missions against al-Qaeda around the world, with American troops now operating in 75 countries.

The dramatic expansion in the use of special forces, which in their global span go far beyond the covert missions authorised by George W. Bush, reflects how aggressively the President is pursuing al-Qaeda behind his public rhetoric of global engagement and diplomacy.

When Mr Obama took office US special forces were operating in fewer than 60 countries. In the past 18 months he has ordered a big expansion in Yemen and the Horn of Africa — known areas of strong al-Qaeda activity — and elsewhere in the Middle East, central Asia and Africa.

"Talk softly and carry a big stick."

Versus the much more common............. "talk big and hope you can scare them with rhetoric."

Not sure how accurate the info in the article is but, I certainly hope it's true.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Obama has been MUCH more aggresive w/ the predator drone attacks than the previous administration in response to terrorists.

Pretty interesting how this dude works. He is no softy liberal.

Re: Our wars are expanding

Most dictators aren't soft, they rule with an iron fist, they are doing something even if the majority of the public is against it.

Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.

Re: Our wars are expanding

That "dictator" that was voted in by overwhelming margins by the American public and can be voted back out in 2.5 years?

Maybe you should look up what a dictator is as you seem confused, again?

Re: Our wars are expanding

Well we would all have to be a little nieve if you didn't think this hasn't been going on for years, even before 9/11. It's no secret but what would be was how they're getting over there, their units, identities etc,etc. As a member of the military I'll admit that I'm suprised how the POTUS has handled certain things starting with giving the SEALS a green light to take out the Somali pirates. Now let's just talk about that 1.8% raise versus the 3.5's we've been getting.

I have killed two people since midnight, I haven't slept in over 24 hours. So maybe... maybe you should be a little more afraid of me than you are right now. Jack Bauer
