Candid Kiran: Surge’s “Gonna S*ck!”

American Morning co-anchor Kiran Chetry did not mince words this morning on her view of the surge in Afghanistan or, at the very least, the timing of it.

Introducing a segment entitled “Marines Ready to Surge,” Kiran stated, “We now could know soon who will be leading the surge into Afghanistan: Marines from Camp Lejeune are expected to ship out before Christmas Day….What are we expecting to hear today, Chris [Lawrence, CNN Pentagon correspondent]?

Lawrence answered, “This base is really buzzing! They just got several units back from Afghanistan just a few weeks ago. And, now we expect that the first thousand Marines will go directly from here to Helmand province.

Before Lawrence could continue his report, Kiran interjected, “That’s what I’m saying! I mean, obviously, it’s gonna s*ck!”*

Initially, appearing to be taken a bit aback by Kiran’s exclamation, Lawrence coolly paused for a moment and then replied, “Yeah. Definitely…They’re going to where some of that, that toughest fighting is going to be. And, again, that is going to affect, obviously, a lot of families.”

A.M.: Absent Muzzle? Candid Kiran indeed!

    Chetry and the rest of the anti-war looney lefties are having a cow over this troop surge to Afghanistan. I’m guessing that Kiran and the rest of the Obama supporters expected the Taliban and Al Qaeda to simply lay down their arms and be ready to kiss and make up with the US. It all sounded so simple during the campaign!
