this has to stop...our guys have to be able to survive..and we need out now..our government has no intention of fullfilling a mission in that country.
Bring the troops home.
The Left is really insistent on making an example out of our troops for doing their job. This should drive down recruitment numbers even further.
If it harms America, Zero is for it.
OBAMAH IS KICKING OUR MILITARY'S ASS!
Any backround on this?
Not the full circumstances but ...
This is what happens when you take trained to kill combat soldiers and use them as police officers and do so in a country where life is cheap.
The three separate killings happened between January and May near Forward Operating Base Ramrod in southern Afghanistan’s Kandahar Province, said Fort Lewis spokeswoman Lt. Col. Tamara Parker. She said she did not have information yet on the circumstances of the civilian deaths.
Oh come on! These people won’t be happy until they get convictions. I hate the left.
No shit, Sherlock. But I made an effort to get you some information.
No need for invectives.....I was looking for more info...you provided it...
You can bet your ass that JAG is behind this. What a bunch of a-holes.
This crap has got to stop. Back our troops to the hilt or bring them home!
“this has to stop”
Jack Murtha is dead. But, his mission lives on........
“Bring the troops home.”
“OBAMAH IS KICKING OUR MILITARY’S ASS!”
Coward is as coward does.
I saw General Petraeus on TV today agreeing with Obama's withdrawal timetable and almost felt woozy from disgust and shame. What would Generals Grant, Pershing and Patton say right now if they were here and were told that a time for withdrawal was being set while the fighting is still underway. What would they say if they were told there are now war medals to be issued for "courageous restraint".
What is happening is unreal and frightening. Even our military brass has succumbed to the madman in the White House.....they don't want to make any waves or jeopardize their positions.
I can't even type any more I'm so angry and so worried about our gallant troops in the field.
Thank you, Leni....
Your’s, is the post of the last two years.
