It is time for the American military to be pulled out of Afghanistan now. There is no point in waiting and there is no point in losing another American life there. Let’s be done with this.
Anyone with half a brain can tell you that the Obama policy for Afghanistan is to lose gracefully or at least put it off until he is well into a second term. His policy is failure. He does not talk about winning the war. HE simply talks about getting America out of there.
Our troops have been handicapped by insane rules of engagement that go so far as to aid terrorists and Taliban sympathizers over American military pers....
Now Fox News is reporting that we are releasing Taliban fighters on the promise they will not fight again. These are not low-level grunts, but high level detainees.
Why? What are we getting out of this? The answer is nothing.
How many of these guys have returned to the fight? How many of the released Guantanamo detainees returned to fight Americans? How many Americans have been killed or wounded by so-called “friendly” Afghan military personnel?
The object of a war is to be victorious. This is so obvious, anyone even someone as obtuse as Barack Obama should be able to figure it out. When we went to Afghanistan in 2001, it was a textbook operation. We routed the Taliban. At that point we should have told the Northern Alliance to keep the Taliban out of Afghanistan or we will be back and left.
Instead, George W. Bush thought nation building would be a good idea. Unfortunately for America, in the war on terror George W. Bush and now Barack Obama would not allow us to attack the main weapon the terrorists use: Their religion.
Much as Germany was de-Nazified after World War Two, the only way nation building was going to work was going to be to de-Islamify Afghanistan.
Instead of recognizing the ideology of our enemy and treating it as such, Bush and now Obama have imposed silly rules. In Iraq, we could not fire on Mosques, even as they were being used to not only hide terrorists be as grounds for terrorists to shoot and kill Americans. We were forced to pretend that some how Islam, a barbaric and evil religion, was worthy of respect. We had to provide the captured terrorists with copies of the Quran. We had to paint arrows on the floors of their cells so they would know which direction Mecca was. We had to have special rules handling their Qurans, even though the captured terrorists would routinely defile the books themselves and use that for propaganda purposes.
The American military has never lost a war. Our political leadership, particularly that Party of Treason, has done a great job of getting American soldiers killed with nothing to show for it.
If Obama is going to have us lose Afghanistan, let’s be done with it now. Let’s start pulling our forces and equipment out now. The only thing that should be going to Afghanistan is supplies we need for the pull out and enough high explosives to blow up everything we have built.
There is no point in sending one more American soldier, sailor, airman or marine to die in a war Obama has decided to lose.
We should understand the cost of this loss. It is not just the blood and treasure America has lost. We have had the luxury of fighting terrorism for the most part in the terrorist back yard. Thanks to the leadership of Barack Obama and the Party of Treason, I fear soon we will be fighting terrorism here in America.
American Soldiers are sitting ducks in Afghanistan. Bring them all home now. Let the Taliban have that wasteland and don't send Krooked Karzi a dime.
Getting the "Taliban" out of Afganistanis like getting the "Mafia"out of Sicily (Been there since 1276). Leave them where Allah flung them !
We are already fighting terrorism here in America....bring the troops home!
Keeping troops there guarantees they are not in America if Obama turns on the people.
Debrajoe, I've thought about that, too. There's no other reason to keep them there.
And for what reason does Homeland Securtiy need 430+MILLION rounds of hollow-point ammunition?
We need to do as the Swiss do~~~the soldiers take their weapons home with them!!
I don't know for sure, but I will guess it is to use on the American citizens.
Has anyone "officially" inquired about 430,000,000 rounds of ammunition......For What???? Someone said it was .40 Cal ?
My old Marine Corps Unit C.1.6 (Camp Lejeune, N.C. ) did not have .223 Cal for M-16s for "practice" between deployments in Iraq. But, Homeland "Security" orders 430,000,000 rounds??? What war are they intending to fight ??
Don't know, Ron, but between the ammo purchases and the "FEMA Camps" (read concentration camps) and Obozo's avowed declaration to have a "civilian security force equal in equipment and training to the army" (read Obama's Blackshirts vis a vis Hitler's Brown Shirts)~~~~YOU "fill in the blanks"
Has anyone challenged Obama to "explain that remark" and how constitutional that might be?
I was amzazed that "Blackwater/Alumni" was providing 20-25K "Men to Bagdad Embassy"??
Have you nailed any jello to the wall lately?? Challenge Obozo? Do you know anyone in a position of power (Boehner, McConnell) in the House and Senate with a pair of balls? With all that is known of Obozo's ineligibililty to be president, his Muslim preference over Christianity (particularly Catholics), etc, have YOU heard of ANYONE who is DOING anything about him?? The SCOTUS?? I sure as hell haven't!
