Two-edged Dagger

by Lazer Brody

Obama's new offensive in Afghanistan has been dubbed, "Operation Khanjar" - khanjar in Pashto Afghan means dagger.

At its outstart on July 7th, Obama Administration spokesmen declared, "Operation Khanjar will ensure the safety of civilians and limit casualties as well as to winning the hearts and minds of the Afghan people." Meanwhile, Obama's Khanjar hasn't ensured civilian safety, is suffering painful casualties, and is growing old fast on the Afghans.

Mr. Obama, the dagger cuts two ways. By pressuring Israel on the subject of Jerusalem, you are leading your own nation into oblivion.
