For fans of Miller, Wednesday night’s “Miller Time” with O’Reilly video is a must-see. Miller wasn’t joking when he added, ” I guarantee you somewhere in the next thirty years, we’re going back there and one of these times we’re just gonna have to vaporize the bad guys.”
“If you’re gonna turn kids into crossing guards over there, and they’re gonna get killed not even fighting as well as they could…you might as well bring them home,” said Dennis Miller, the conservative comedian to O’Reilly, speaking with pragmatic resignation, seriously, of President Obama’s earlier announcement outlining his decision to draw down Afghanistan troops . Mr. Obama will order 10,000 troops to pull out of Afghanistan this year plus an additional 33,000 troops by the end of next summer – a schedule many consider co-ordinated for prime reelection favor.
Miller said he was “pretty happy” with the Commander in Chief because he had turned out to be a “veritable killing machine compared to what I expected” but when “he’s talking like this … I know he’s gotta appease those morons like the Code Pink chicks … to get reelected.”
Miller tipped his hat at Obama for “killing Bin Laden,” and “going across state lines. He’s doing surges. You know I’m pretty happy. Drones killing our enemies from up above. You know, if you’re gonna fight war, you’ve gotta go Roman and he’s been much more Roman than I would expect.”
“I don’t judge him by what he’s talking about, I judge him by what he does, “added Miller, “and he’s a killing machine.”
According to a Pew Research Poll, many would agree with Miller with a majority, 56%, ready to bring home the troops in Afghanistan while only 39% are in favor in keeping the troops in Afghanistan until the area is stablized. 57% believe the Afghan war was justified and the right thing to do but 56% don’t believe Afghanistan will be capable of maintaining a stable government once the United States brings our troops home.
In President Obama’s speech tonight, it’s not a far leap to conclude that Mr. Obama is going against the advice of his personal, hand-selected general on the ground, David Petraeus, in his decision to withdraw the troops quicker than advised. Support from General Petraeus was not mentioned in Mr. Obama’s speech; in fact, General Petraeus was not mentioned at all.
Though some support the kind “nation building” that Mr. Obama was attempting, some Americans lean towards Miller’s policy of “vaporize ’em” or get out”. Yet as tired as Americans are of fighting Muslims in Far East Lands, it is difficult not to grieve over a 10 years of investment and so much blood and treasure to ultimately allow the Taliban the final victory in the end.
