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.

Anything to destroy morale ... prosecution, restrictive ROE, repeal of DADT ...

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.

Weak.

Our troops are being sent to die in bloody war situations with their hands tied behind their backs. There's nothing more despicable, more insane, more treasonous than the current situation.....our troops being used as cannon fodder under a CIC who DOESN'T WANT TO WIN.

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.
