To Obama On Date Night :10 TROOPS KILLED IN DEADLIEST BATTLE OF YEAR
The American People!!!!!!!!!! ^

Posted on 10/04/2009 6:47:35 PM PDT by MaxCUA

It began before dawn — a devastating, well-planned attack. About 300 insurgents swarmed out of a village and mosque and attacked a pair of isolated American outposts in a remote mountainous area of eastern Afghanistan with machineguns, rockets and grenades. They first stormed the Afghan police post at the foot of the hill in the province of Nuristan, a Taleban and al-Qaeda stronghold on the lawless Pakistan border. They then swept up to the Nato post. The battle lasted all day. American and Afghan soldiers finally repelled them, with the help of US helicopters and warplanes — but at heavy cost.

But, the media focuses on what Michele was wearing for the date and what ice cream Obama had for desert.

Shut it down? And have these troops die in vain?

Oh Hell NO.

Do what Bush did, send in a surge and win the damn thing! We are there to win, not let the Taliban win.

Another disgusting display by a first couple that has absolutely no regard for the miltary whatsoever.

Unfortunately, we can’t count on the media to repport any of this. Most don’t even know there was a date night, or that 10 were killed over the weekend. And the media will never highlight it like they did with Bush. There aren’t any Republicans in Congress who the media pay attention to, and while folks liek Rush and Levin and Beck can make noise, they play to the choir. Only when the public at large sees things like this and hears about it will they get fed up.

There are only a few Republicans out there who can make this a national story and drive it. One of them is in Dallas and has too much class. One is in the Senate from AZ and is to much of a jackass. Ironically the only two who can make this an issue are the former VP and his would-be successor.

If she were to go on any TV show tomorrow and mention how disgrceful it is that right after jetting back and forth to Copenhagen for a huimiliating failure, and right after another 265K americans lost their jobs last month, him and Michelle were going out on date night while 10 Americans were killed as he’s ordering his minions to hang their commander out to dry it would instantly become the #1 issue in the US. It is not a winning issue for him and he will fall fast because of it. Even the media won’t be able to defend him because there is no defense. Like they couldn’t defend him on his Olympic failure. He was humililated in front of the world and there was no way to hide it.

Her or Cheney are really the only ones who can make this a story instantly.

I’d say either the Today Show tomorrow as it will become the story of the entire day or something like O’Reilly or Beck. Today is better because it reaches a wide audience and not just conservatives watch it.

What a disgrace. If George and Laura were heading out for date night in their multi limo entourage while 10 Americans were killed they’d be excoriated and rightly so.

The Olympics, the jobs report, the awful weekend in Afghanistan, it’s all falling apart for him.

Having returned bitch-slapped from an unnecessary trip completely outside his job description, the empty suit is apparently paralyzed and unable to act, so American troops die while he finishes his Olympics pity party.
Consider: He isn’t qualified under the Constitution for the office. Even if it turns out that he is qualified, he is incompetent and was spending millions in legal fees because taxpayers are picking up the tab. (And this is a real possibility considering his spending thus far.) He was—and may still be—a member of a criminal enterprise.
Any one of these reasons alone is enough to bring articles of impeachment and removal from office. Before too long, possibly by the first of the year, I expect Reid, Pelosi and others will ask for his resignation.

“Please explain why?”

Because the bastards that attacked us on 9-11 came from here.
But we need to let the military win and then get the heck out.
We do not need a Marxist community organizer dithering around in military tactics.

I have a wild fantasy that Zero wanders onto a US military base for one of his tawdry photo-op events, and is arrested for multiple counts of treason, taken before a military court, where his qualifications to be POTUS, his real name, past actions and associations, and his actions as presumed POTUS, are given the scrutiny they deserve by somebody who would really take it wherever it leads. Propaganda sycophants allowed to receive full transcripts after the trial is completed. Just a dream, no doubt.

Did you know (you don’t) that not one of the attackers on our soil were from Afghanistan? Nope. They were from SAUDI ARABIA. 15 of those evil dead snakes were Wahhabi from SAUDI ARABIA!!!! Bin Laden in from Saudi Arabia (Wahhabi)and holds up with the PAKISTANI tribes. Lets bomb the Saudis and get their oil for OUR COUNTRY!!! Lets Bomb Pakistan if they don’t regurgitate that puss pocket out of Pakistan. But let us leave Afghanistan before we kill any more young men from Long Island!!

The Dems just don't have the stomach to conduct a war - Johnson couldn't, Carter was a disaster and Cruise Missile Bill (all he could hit was a dress) - hell even FDR had to be forced into it...Obama and Biden? Oh please these two don't know which end the round comes out of...

Does this stoner look like a real CinC to you? It makes me nauseous to even think that he directs real men into battle, in fact he doesn't deserve to be in the same room with warriors like Stan McChrystal - wtf was this country thinking to elect this light weight Jody in a time of war (or ever for that matter?)

We should not use the deaths of our war fighters to make political points.

The Bush haters did enough of that already. So much in fact that President Bush gave up playing golf so it wouldn’t look improper that he was living a normal life.

Boy, talk about mixed emotions. I agree that a surge would be better than a shutdown but if the current regime is running this war shut down may be the only way to save us from losing more good men. What a dilemma.

They trained and were based in Afghanistan, Osama (man it's hard not to type Obama) was holed up there.
Afghanistan will revert to a terrorist base if we let the Taliban take over.

But we must let the professionals do their jobs. One American who dies because of an incompetent politician is a tragedy.
LBJ's ghost is back in the White House.

In fact the more I look at this picture the madder I get - President Obama - I hope some of your peeps are reading this - man up and resign, you know you are a fraud and don’t have the guts to even look real warriors in the eye - wash yourself out and save the country some embarrassment...and maybe some precious lives to boot!

The One will not make a decision on troops until he rams Obamacare down our throats. He is afraid to piss off his lefty pals and they wont pass his program, so we wait, and people die, no big deal to One who sees the larger picture.

I pray you are right. If they were smart, they would realize that asking for him to resign may actually save their party. They are stupid though.

“WHY are you not ready to attack Saudi Arabia and Pakistan??”

That is ridiculous and you know it. The governments of those 2 countries do not support this extremist activity. Those governments are cooperating with us the best they can.

They have sizable portions of anti Americanism in their countries.
But these 2 governments are walking a fine balance to keep the lid on the extremism.
If we attacked them; we blow the part of the government away that is friendly to us. We would install a hard line anti American regime in it’s place.

I’ll second that. Since “About 300 insurgents swarmed out of a village and mosque” it seems to me that the village and the mosque should have received a heavy dose of air delivered ordnance during the course of the battle. Just to make sure there were not any reinforcements, supplies, etc. in the village or the mosque.

It’s already too late to find someone who is responsible in the office of the POTUS. The current POTUS does not care about the oung Americans dying in Afghanistan. He’s too busy wining and dining.

People need to stand with signs counting the dead behind the morning news shows or anywhere they purport to place regular so-called people. Cover the news of the caskets returning...these are OUR boys...OUR boys. They need the respect and acknowledgement of their sacrifice for US!!!
If ONE man is going to carry their blood on his wringing hands, we need to know that.

Giap’s post - Tet new war strategy:

What we should do: For each additional day’s stay the US must sustain more casualties. For each additional day’s stay they must spend more money and lose more equipment. Each additional day’s stay the American people will adopt a stronger antiwar attitude while there is no hope to conslidate the puppet administration and the army of South Vietnam.
