We need to pull out if we aren't serious about winning.
Profile in the PC dictionary means turning ones head to a 45 degree angle.
Bugs Bunny: “You realize this means war!”
Let’s declare victory and advance to the rear.
Get us the hell out of that cesspool! There is no reason to keep squandering lives and money in a stone-age country.
So much for “Nation Building”. I prefer total victory or get out, take your nation building and shove it!
I would be interested to know where exactly this took place on the airport. Civilian side, or military side?
In the new section which is NATO controlled or the Afghan side, much less so?
Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- At least six American service members were killed Wednesday when a man opened fire on troops and a "gunfight" ensued at an airport in the Afghan capital, military officials said.
We aren’t serious about winning. We should pull out. We don’t owe these savages anything.
Simple question: why are we working side by side with these people if they have a history of using suicide agents?
if we were serious about winning it would have been over.
How not to win a war, thanks a lot Bush, Obama.
Perhaps the worst legacy from Bush is his “Religion of Peace” nonsense. He has hamstrung the U.S. with this silliness, and it hugely affects how we as a country view this struggle.
I enlisted during Vietnam and have NEVER promoted the idea of America leaving a half done war.
Today, that is changed.
We need to leave Afghanistan.
When they are American casualties, they are now referred to as “NATO” troops to protect Hussein.
Worthless POS Associated Press.
Libya is Obama's Vietnam.
That is the whole point - if we are not going to fight to win, then we should not fight at all. Period. How many American men and women have given life and limb in this “war” as well as in Iraq.... all to have our officials basically sabotage our efforts there.
Regardless of how one feels about these two conflicts, we either need to fully support VICTORY (whatever that may ultimately mean), or we need to get the heck out.
Nuke it from orbit (It’s the only way to be sure).
And our American News Media calls them NATO troops, so that people who only casually hear any “news” will not even know that Americans were murdered in cold blood in Kabul yesterday.
Contrast this with the daily/hourly body count during the Bush years of this “war.”
We have no troops in Libya!
Libya is simply Obama’s stupidity on display.
