Posted on 03/06/2011 5:17:22 PM PST by Amerisrael
There is something very repugnant and offensive about U.S. troops being put in harms way to help prop up an Afghan government that has a Constitution based on Sharia law, that imposes the death penalty for "leaving Islam"/ Apostacy.
And this is becoming an all too frequent occurance in the "new democratic" Afghan government that our U.S. troops made possible, and our own government helped set up.
Not to mention how our own U.S. military authorities bowed the knee in appeasement, confiscated Bibles from a U.S. soldier, [Bibles in the native language], and had them burned.
A matter that no doubt would have infuriated the late General Douglas MacArthur. How so one might ask?
Not long after the surrender of Japanese forces was accomplished in WWII, and the occupation commenced, MacArthur reached out to U.S. churches and called for thousands of Christian missionaries and the importation of millions of Bibles. In English and Japanese.
Only a handful of missionaries from U.S. churches responded. Not the thousands requested.
Even so, there is the question of "why" MacArthur would make such a request:
In regards to the occupation of Iraq, former President G.W. Bush has repeatedly made the analogy, [false analogy], of how after the surrender of Japanese forces, and the following U.S. occupation, Japan then went on to embrace "democracy" and has since become a stalwart ally of the U.S.
But there are a couple of important aspects pertaining to the accomplished surrender of Japanese forces and the U.S. occupation that President Bush omits in his analogy:
One,- the military and citizens of Japan at that time were very much into "Emperor worship", or "leader worship".

No——just level their toilet nations instead. You are dealing with cultural and religious limitations. Just give them the “Carthage” treatment and lets go home for beer and volleyball.
Considering how quickly the entire region is going to h3ll, I’d say getting our troops out of there is a great idea.
Since oblunder has their hands so tied with the current rules of engagement LEAVE! Leave them with enough AK ammo so they can just kill themselves.
Let them do the job American soldiers can’t do.
Get them out.
I can’t understand how any soldier could stand to salute the Obamat*rd.
Our troops should not be border patrol agents in Afghanistan only to be picked off one by one, they need to be brought home Solders fight wars when politicians tie their hands its time to get them out, “Afghanistan” is unwinnable when Pakistan will always continue to have an influx of new “extremists” that end up in the tribal areas(funded by Saudi’s and others), IF you want to spend money on Border patrol spend it on US Border Patrol.
well their guarding the poppy plants and the oil fields. This is very important stuff u know
Fight, or don't fight. There is only death for our people in the middle ground.
Bring them home, and put them on our southern border to stop the invasion of our own country. That is a worthwhile mission for our military.
We are broke Jim, time to regroup, tell all countries to fend for themselves except for Israel, and just tell the world if you attack us we nuke you and mean it...
soldiers out everywhere, welcome home!!!
aprox. US Troops killed in Afghanistan Since 2 years of the Obama regime..
Maybe a little force in Iraq; Cut Afghans loose. No hope there for any measurable result.
I'm with you, aces. Enough, already. Our people are dying for NO good reason. This fight ceased to be an honorable one, a long time ago.
Bloody hell.... Obama is getting our people slaughtered!
Where is the MSM with this news, and the daily body counts?
Jeez, I’m really angry now.
Ping to post 11.
I can’t say what I’m thinking.
“Since oblunder has their hands so tied with the current rules of engagement LEAVE!”
Our troops should be pulled out now, not left as cannon fodder for jihadists. We definitely need to capture bin Laden but that should be a job for the CIA not the military. During the Cold War the CIA repeatedly toppled democratically elected socialist leaders in Latin America and replaced them with our thugs. If they can do that, they can certainly infiltrate al Qaeda and eventually get one of their agents close enough to kill/ capture bin Laden.
A soldier salutes the flag, my FRiend. Obozo is just a representative of that flag.
Just leave a trillion dollars in lithium and other metals for the Chinese to exploit?
Bin Laden’s been dead for 10 years now.
Lets get our troops out, save some money state side and pay down this national debt. It is a far greater risk to our security then 7th century AFghans
