Sartre Meets Afghanistan: Obama’s “No Exit” Strategy
December 8, 2009 § Leave a comment
All I know is that whether or not we are able to get out of Afghanistan by the set timeline of July 2011, the American people still need to find a way to sustain this country. We, the American people and all of the people’s of this world — we have to stand on our own. Not in the sense that we ignore others but the complete opposite...that we learn to take care of each other, lift ourselves up, figure out ways to not let people fall through the cracks and push our local, city, national and global communities to be better, to do better and to create better futures for ourselves. We cannot completely depend on the government to do everything because it cannot.
I have no idea if President Obama is lying to the American people, if he is being naive, or if he is being highly strategic and we just can’t see it. All I know is that whatever future we want for ourselves, we are not going to get there by sitting back and waiting for the government to do it for us. Discussion is how people begin to generate ideas and lead to productive, positive action.
Bad things always happen…it doesn’t mean it cannot be turned into a positive outcome. We just have to remain engaged.
