His "Bay of Pigs" is more likely....
How often do these same pious Muslim leaders complain about the “innocent” deaths caused by Jihad acts of terror against the civilian population? Why they don't - is that they fear they will be killed for complaining! They KNOW they can spit on us with no ill effect.
When have these same pious sheet heads complained about the Jihadi routine practice of fighting from behind civilian shields or from the interior of their freaking “holy places”....
How can ANYTHING be innocent or holy in country recognized throughout recorded history as a land of backward militant war lords at each others throats?
It's very hard to selectively exterminate only the cockroaches with guns who are firing at you, and avoid injuring the cockroaches whose guns are still hidden away for the day they screw up their courage to fight you ..
By now - folks should have figured out that NONE of our current or future enemies will fight the type of war where we can utilize our military superiority..
They will elect to fight the type of war our too civilized society abhors..... the kind of war where MILLIONS die... Most of them “innocent”....
We knew where our enemy was during WWII — they lived in Germany and Japan...
That is precisely why the Islamists PRETEND none of the worlds Muslim nations is the enemy — yet we are asked to believe we are not fighting a war against Islam, but only against “extremists” of the Muslim faith...
ANY reading of the Koran will show that anyone who practices Islam as written and taught in the Koran, is in fact a damned extremist who is charged with our destruction or enslavement....
I'll not be convinced there is any “War against Terror”, until I see entire cities within the womb of the Islamic Republics leveled to a single layer of smoldering rubble...
It was war fighting procedure against the Germans, Japanese - and it SHOULD be suffered by the population areas most “hospitable” to the militant, radical Jihadists....
I'll bet we all could name some areas that would fit that description....
it’s effing Bambi what do you expect
“.........not knowing jack about this but hearing that the new brass is a former spec ops guy and that Gates suggested this I think this may be the rare instance maybe Teleprompter in Chief got it right
or didnt get in the way
somebody correct me please if im wrong.........”
I highly doubt it........Bambi put a known liar in instead
“.........Sounds to me that the General in Afghanistan probably disagreed with Obamas plans for more troops, and probably for suggesting going into Pakistan like Obama said he wanted to do in his campaign... I dont know anything about the former commander in that area, all I know is that Obama cant really stand being told hes wrong he believes he knows best, even if the commanders on the ground are telling him they firmly disagree. I would imagine that would get someone sacked in a hurry in Obamas military...
All just my armchair opinion...”
Actually, the fired general has been yelling for mre troops...no Bambi rehabbed a liar and can manipulate him...is what happened....be afraid.....be very afraid....
If he is a SpecOp guy it would be highly unusual for him to be put in this position. I will check around and see what the skinny is.
I swear every swinging d that goes to the Pentagon to work should be required to read and take an extensive test on âThe Art of Warâ.
If you are talking the games the Taliban and Karzai play, I have heard it from several sources the past few days. The discussion I heard was in the context of Hillary’s response to such an event (almost apologetic) only to discover it was a Taliban setup.
I feel the need to quote Ann Coulter here on what happens when Democrat Presidents have their fingers in foreign policy and warefare.
In summary, defeat and humiliation. God, how I pray for our troops and our country. Don’t Forsake Them under the arrogant, amateur direction of those who will handcuff and meddle in the affairs of our military in their every move.
see post 69
you can judge as you see fit
that’s why I asked
I heard (on O’reilly last night) the Taliban had killed the civilians before we ever got involved and then blamed the bombing for the deaths.
Its a trick to get us to stop bombing.
The Taliban is getting blowed up and they don’t like it.
In that case you're more qualified than the socialist-fascist-commie pig usurper pontificating from the steamy tropical temps & opulant settings in the WH -- 0boooooomboshiite!!!
"We can and must do better ... We have a new policy set by our president, a new strategy, a new mission ... I believe new military leadership is also needed," said Robert Gates, the defence secretary.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
If Obama palns to defeat Al Quaida with aggrssive community organizing, then we may be in for Viet Nam , Act II.
It won't matter how good McCrystal is, he will preside over a community organizing debacle. We will have to see what exactly the new policy is.That is if we ever see it at all.
Remember that we had a really good soldier in command in Vietnam, but he was traduced by a micro managing president. The Cong and NVA ran cicles around him.
Not in the least bit curious; Oworshipme knew he would not be able to get the man to betray his country, so he had to put someone there who would.
“...make one tenet in their guerrilla warfare playbook an absolute priority: protection of the civilian population”
What about kick the sh$% out of the terrorists and make them eat their own a$$es?
If found guilty, should meet a firing squad!
