Obama’s Vice President Joe Biden: Russia, China, India: ‘The Real War’ *

Obama’s running mate presents the strategic plan for the next administration
On Aug 27 2008 at the Democratic Convention in Denver, Vice-presidential candidate Sen. Joseph Biden presented the plan for[…] the war against China, Russia. He repeated the key points pushed by Zbigniew Brzezinski in his obsessive determination to go to the final clash with Russia and Asia.
Biden, “The greates mistake of the Bush administration was its failure to face the biggest the biggest forces shaping this century. The emergence of Russia, China and India’s great powers”.
What was the “consequence of this neglect”? “Russia challenging… Georgia’s freedom.” The Obama-Biden administration will repair those criminal mistakes… “Barack and I will end that neglect. We will hold Russia accountable.”
The wars of the Bush administration were, so to speak the wrong ones.
The new administration will unchain[…] the war to confront the emergence of Russia, China, India.
The war[…] will have to be waged in Afghanistan/Pakistan - exactly the area where it will be more disruptive for the feared Russia, China India challenge.
The previous administration was not warmonger enough, according to Biden. The new Democratic administration will increase the number of troops sent in central Asia.
Then “the real war” against America’s enemies will start. “al-Qaida and the Taliban - the people who have actually attacked us on 9/11 - they’ve regrouped in the mountains between Afghanistan and Pakistan and are plotting new attacks.”
McCain is bad as President because he did not understand the need for the “real war.”
McCain believes that the war in Afghanistan is over. But Obama is the real champion of the US National Security. One year ago he said “We need to send two more combat battalions to Afghanistan”…
The military establishment is with Obama, in this real war, Biden said, “the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has echoed Barack’s call for more troops and John McCain was wrong and Barack Obama was right.”
Joe Biden’s speech at the Democratic convention
Aug 27 2008 - Democratic Convention. Denver
Address by Sen. Joe Biden, Barack Obama’s running mate, at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday in Denver, as released by the Obama campaign:
Since I’ve never been called a man of few words, let me say this as simply as I can: Yes. Yes, I accept your nomination to run and serve with Barack Obama, the next President of the United States of America.
You know, John McCain is my friend, and I know you hear that phrase used all the time in politics. I mean it. John McCain is my friend. We’ve traveled the world together.
But I profoundly - I profoundly disagree with the direction that John wants to take the country, from Afghanistan to Iraq.
That’s not change, that’s the same.
The choice in this election is clear. A leader who can change, change - the change that everybody knows we need.
And for the last seven years, the administration has failed to face the biggest the biggest forces shaping this century. The emergence of Russia, China and India’s great powers, the spread of lethal weapons,
Ladies and gentlemen, in recent years and in recent days we once again see the consequences of the neglect, of this neglect, of Russia challenging the very freedom of a new democratic country of Georgia. Barack and I will end that neglect. We will hold Russia accountable for its action and we will help Georgia rebuild.
Whose judgment do you trust? Should you trust the judgment of John McCain when he said only 3 years ago, “Afghanistan - we don’t read about it anymore in the papers, because it succeeded”? Or do you believe Barack Obama, who said a year ago, “We need to send two more combat battalions to Afghanistan”?
al-Qaida and the Taliban - the people who have actually attacked us on 9/11 - they’ve regrouped in the mountains between Afghanistan and Pakistan and are plotting new attacks. And the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has echoed Barack’s call for more troops and John McCain was wrong and Barack Obama was right.
