Banja Luka. USA military forces started preparing for their pullout of the Eagle base near Tuzla, Serbian agency TANJUG informs citing Bosnian newspaper Oslobojdenje. The news of the pullout of the American troops has caused concern among Sarajevo political circles. Citing reliable sources the Bosnian newspaper announced the Americans will leave the base by the end of the year as they will be replaced by a Dutch battalion. The chair of the Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Presidency Sulejman Tihic could not confirm definitely the news of the pullout of the US troops from BiH because “there is no information from official political and diplomatic sources”.

Funny. When I was at Dayton in 1995, it was supposed to be a "1-year mission"; Then when I spent 1996 at Eagle Base in Tuzla it turned into "several years"....well, at least it is ending...*LOL*

I remember writing Senator Sam Nunn a letter, asking him to vote to keep our troops out of Yugoslavia. His response was that he was also concerned, but the President had promised a limited time deployment.
I wonder if the press will play this up,

I wrote to Boxer & Feinstein as well, trying to keep our troops out of Bosnia. I got nonsense generic letters back from both, reassuring me of the nobility & "necessity of their deployment for a limited duration" (home before Christmas), blah, blah, blah.

I recently wrote them both about Kosovo. I got nothing back from Boxer, -- but Feinstein sent me back a rather eloquent letter "sharing my concern" and it actually sounded somewhat sincere. Either Feinstein has changed her tune or she has figured out that "this (Kosovo) dog won't hunt". Frankly, I was almost impressed -- but the proof of sincerity is in the action, not the talk.

No, Mr. Murtha told me Okinawa's just a next door to Iraq - that's too far from Bosnia!

"You folks have been claiming that Bosnians are jihadists. Jihadists hate America. Jihadists have killed over 2,000 US soldiers in Iraq and 200 in Afghanistan. So, I repeat: How many US troops have been killed in Bosnia? Round it to, say, the nearest 10." ---- So, If I get AK-47 and kill, lets say... 10 US soldiers, I will get US help, finances, training, country of my own, card blanche to kill my enemies, status of good guy inspite of being bastard, and all that ONLY if I kill 10 US Soldiers!? END SARCASM Tommy, for you, 10 killed American Soldiers are proof that Bosnian Muslims are good guys and don‚t hate America? ARE YOU NUTTTTTS? JESUS!

Announcement to the Islamofascists: We ain't doin your dirty work, no mo'.

Unlike Bill Clinton this President is concerned with America's strategic interests and, not insignificantly, the issues of "right and wrong," a concept foreign to the Clintonistas.

This has far reaching geopolitical implications.

Condi ain't dumb. George and Rummy ain't either.

The DBM, on the other hand...

Too bad no reporter has the guts to ask Hillary why it took TWELVE YEARS to bring the troops home from Bill's little war to help the Muslims kill the Christians in Serbia. Talk about NO exit strategy!

I believe our troops can be used better in other regions. France can backfill.

If the jihadists are as prominent in Bosnia as you claim they are then I somehow doubt US troops could go 10 years without a few fatalities.

The Bosnian muslims are double reverse super-secret jihadists, much like the Albanians.

Only the Serbs and their supporters truly understand their enemy's logic, realizing that the most effective way to wage jihad is by not waging jihad.

Ergo, when the Serbs were ethnically cleansing and murdering their muslim neighbors, they were doing so because if someone acted like they weren't a muslim fundamentalist, then obviously they were, and pre-emptive action was justified.

See? Makes perfect sense.

If we were smart and followed the Serb's logic, we'd know that our having suffered zero casualties to jihadis in Bosnia obviously means that Bosnia is the hottest of all the jihadi hotbeds of the world, and the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan is but a smokescreen to cover the jihadi's activities in Bosnia.

Specifially, how many were killed by the jihadists who supposedly rule Bosnia?

The jihadists who rule Bosnia know the continued existance of their "nation" could be measured on a stopwatch if it weren't for the foreign soldiers to protect them. So they aren't dumb enough to cut their own throats, you suggesting that means something?

What kind of idiot supports the idea of using our troops to protect the Islamofascists?

Oh, it's you. Never mind.

Even PBS who have been slow on the uptake, did a Frontline episode called "Son of Al Qaida" about a young man whose family was friends with bin Laden. He had a change of heart about al Qaida and said that the CIA hired him. Episode 5 reads:.

C'mon dude - 10 years and NO soldiers killed?

Are you ignorant or do you think you can just make things up?

As early as '96 US troops suffered casualties in Bosnia, from land mines, sniper fire and during a suspected attempt to infiltrate a US base, including one that was killed.

....Serbo-crazy....

That's the exact same language as was used by the banned "Ronly Bonly Jones", aka "The Great Prophet Zarqon". You aren't him, are you?

By the way, how many of us Americans here where I live have been killed by the jihadists whom I know run the big radical mosque in the major city at the center of our area? Answer: none. Why? Because they are too busy with their schemes to finance jihads all over the world, to convert local ninnies to islam, and to spread their subversive propaganda, all under the protection of American "freedom of religion"!!!!

islamist "Bosnia" is much the same as our local radical mosque, only much bigger!!!! And if circumstances change, both in "Bosnia" and around here, they might start killing us as well.

Sounds cold. But after reading some of the testimony from the Hague trials, he seemed to defend himself well against the charges. Seems to me that the Muslims all over the world (Balkans included) want to destroy or convert all of western civilization. Given what we know now........

But Lib, the Bosnian army is a lot stronger and the Serbs are a lot weaker than in 1992.

And still the Jihadists need to hide behind the Western soldiers placed there to defend them.

Or could it be that maybe, just maybe, Bosnia wasn't and isn't the Islamic radical state that you claim it is?

And repeat that loudly enough and you too can pretend that they haven't found mass graves full of Serbs in Bosnia or the thousands of beheaded Serbs around Srebrenica when Oric's terrorists operated out of there.

Of course, when the hammer does finally fall, a lot of the Bosnian and Kosovo Muslims will be heading for England. Enjoy 'em, m'kay!

If that were true then US troops would be attacked on a regular basis. But they're not. Sucks for your argument, doesn't it?

Still getting that concept wrong, I see! LOL!

Horray! Finally someone who actually tries answering the question!

I take it you have the relevant info, so please list the US troops killed by Islamic radicals in Bosnia.

Why, yes I do have relevant information.

So, if you will kindly answer my previous question, I will gladly provide it.

Are you ignorant or do you think you can just make things up?

You seem to have trouble with the English language, so I'll assume it's not your native tongue. To make it easy on you, I'll break it down...

You said, "C'mon dude - 10 years and NO soldiers killed?".

Did you make that up? If not, what is your source?

Anyone, except pissed-of-Brits, can send me mail if they want the source that disprove his claim.
