from Gen. McCaffrey: Sending More Troops to Afghanistan Means "We Are Not Coming Out"
March 27, 2009 (LPAC)--Appearing on the March 26 NBC Nightly News as an advisor, Gen. (ret.) Barry McCaffrey pointed out that the planned induction of 4,000 more troops by President Obama in Afghanistan this year, with the intent of training the Afghan National Army and the Afghan Police, means "we are going in for long time, we are not coming out."
Responding to Gen. McCaffrey's summing up of the anticipated outcome of the President's new surge policy, Lyndon LaRouche said: "Gen. McCaffrey is right. The President's crowd is wrong. They are not thinking. We've told them exactly what to do, and it is right. The advice they are operating on is wrong. Somebody in there is pretty stubborn," LaRouche added.

"... we are not coming out." Perhaps Gen. McCaffrey meant that we're not coming out for a long time, but in my opinion, the "wars" in Iraq and Afghanistan are for purely destructive purposes, and destroying the US military and eventually abandoning it (or at least the "good guys" in it) as far away from home as possible is part of the plan.
