Obama carrying out Osama’s plan to bankrupt the U.S.

June 7, 2010 | By | 3 Replies More

Alan Grayson reminds us that Osama Bin Laden had an overall plan to ruin the United States. All he needed were a couple of presidents to help him carry out the plan. George W. Bush was more than willing.  Then along came Barrack Obama, who surprised his followers and decided to do his part to bankrupt the United States.  Grayson explains:

Today, the war in Afghanistan becomes America’s longest war. Longer than the war in Vietnam. Longer than the Korean War. . . .  Bin Laden’s strategy was — and is — painfully simple: to repeat his victory in Afghanistan against Russia, by driving us into bankruptcy. As he put it, he wanted to use his “experience in using guerrilla warfare and the war of attrition to fight tyrannical superpowers, as we, alongside the mujahidin, bled Russia for 10 years, until it went bankrupt and was forced to withdraw in defeat.” In other words, he just wants to go two-for-two. And, as Bin Laden noted, it is equally simple to get us into that trap.

If you are dismayed that President Obama (and Congress) are eagerly following Bin Laden’s plan to bankrupt the United States, consider signing Grayson’s petition to support “The War is Making You Poor Act.”

This bill would eliminate the separate funding for the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, and eliminate federal income taxes for everyone’s first $35,000 of income (or $70,000 for couples) each year. And it would help pay down our national debt.

    I find this very offensive, as I support Obama and am a Muslim. Osama Bin Laden is powerless and can't drive us into bankruptcy.

    I don't think you can make the equation work. Canada has a lot of resources tied up in Afghanistan (I think more than the US, but I'm not certain of that) and we're doing fine.
