Anyone care to start a pool on which day Obama reluctantly makes one of his boring “We will not rest” speeches with a look on his face like “I’d rather be golfing”?

This is on King Obama’s watch. His appeasing radical Muslims is the cause of all the recent attacks. King Obama is a communists and a Muslim sympathizer.

The backlash is building...and when it lets go, we’re going to sweep this nation clean from one end to the other.

Time to choose sides. Fence sitters will just get from both directions.

I just heard on the radio they were civilian casualties, but it was in the background and I missed how many they said.

Breaking News: 8 Americans Killed In Afghanistan

A suicide bomb attack on a military base in Afghanistan killed eight Americans Wednesday, a U.S. official told CBS News correspondent David Martin.

All the victims were civilians, a spokesman for the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan told CBS News.

The attack occurred at a forward operating military base in Khost province.

According to a CNN, the suicide bomber wore an explosive vest, though reports conflicted over whether the attacker struck the dining room or gym.

Stay tuned to WWJ Newsradio 950 for the latest.

Yesterday an Afghan soldier turned his weapon on the US and other soldiers with him - I believe it was on a base. He killed one American and (I think) two Europeans. I haven’t seen any further report on it, though.

This is worse than bad...

They would not be hitting military bases AGAIN had Fort Hood been called what it was from the start.....

Islam doesn’t pay attention to words they simply watch the actions..soft responses (Talk) from Bo will continue to embolden them too do more attacks. Hate to say it but surely we need to prepare.. more will follow this.

Never thouht I’d feel like our boys in the Military would need protection from their own Presidents decisions....it’s beyond comprehending.

Prayers up from here, for all the relatives of people on this forum that are in Afghanistan or Iraq right now.

Our troops are always on my mind. May God see this as a righteous effort, and help our troops be safe and successful.

Go U.S. Armed forces.

He probably hasn't even been told yet.

Everyone knows he doesn't give a rip about American lives. Why interfere with his vacation?
