The alleged attack on Afghans by an American soldier in Kandahar, where 91 soldiers have been murdered last year alone, is already receiving the full outrage treatment. Any outrage over the deaths of those 91 soldiers in the province will be completely absent. There will be no mention of how many of them died because the Obama Administration decided that the lives of Afghan civilians counted for more than the lives of soldiers. No talk of what it is like to walk past houses with gunmen dressed in civilian clothing inside and if you are fired at from those houses, your orders are to retreat.
Air strikes are for days gone by. The American soldier in the ISAF is expected to patrol and retreat, to smile and reach out to Afghans while they shoot him in the back. After risking his life to hold back the Taliban, he is expected to take it calmly when his government announces that it is trying to cut a deal with the Taliban. As he waits out the final months until withdrawal, seeing his friends lose their limbs and their lives, knowing that the enemy has won, that he has been betrayed and is being kept senselessly on the front line for no objective except the diplomatic position of a government that hates him, that is taking away his health care, his equipment and his job; how does he feel? The Panjwai district, where the shootings happened, are the cradle of the Taliban. Smiling civilians plant IEDs &children serve as lookouts. Obamas Surge pushed hard into Panjwai and the Taliban pushed back. American soldiers were caught in the middle, dying for a handful of dusty towns where the inhabitants took their presents and shook hands with them, and then shot at them from cover.

No more of our troops should lose their lives over this piece of worthless real estate. There is nothing, and I mean, nothing in this crap hole worth our troops dieing for. Should have carpet bombed this place and left a long time ago.
Islamic crap holes will never accept democracy ... Iraq is becoming a strong example.
All that is worthless without one additional absolute and irreversible commitment : not one red cent, not one grain of rice to "help them rebuild their crap hole" ---- ever!
Works for me. and for my children and grandchildren, I hope.
Over the past weekend threads here on FR linked to Pravda.
Pravda asks: What happened to American media? ^ . A story about Sheriff Joe Arpaio's 6 month investigation of 0bama forgery.
Where is the American MSM other than publishing anti US military, pro gay, pro lib or anti American stories?
More stories of importance unreported in the MSM will be coming from Canada and Russia in the future?
Horribly true article. Enough to break your heart for our brave warriors, and strengthen your resolve to defeat this POS CinC.
When one of our finest has just shown the way to victory?
Nothing is as it seems....
