U.S. officers killed in Afghan Interior Ministry
Reuters ^ | 2/25/12 | Hamid Shalizi

Posted on 02/25/2012 7:00:08 AM PST by jimbo123

Two Americans who were shot dead Saturday inside the Interior Ministry in Afghanistan's capital Kabul are believed to be a colonel and a major in the U.S. military, Afghan security sources told Reuters.

A spokeswoman for NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) confirmed two of their servicemen had been shot dead in central Kabul by an individual who turned his weapon on them. She declined to say if the killer was a member of the Afghan military or police.

GTF out of there and let these animals go back to killing each other.

There isn’t a one of them in that whole country that I would trust.You cannot turn your back on them.

Destroy what we cannot carry and get out , it is no disgrace Countries have given up on Afghanistan for 100 years, it just isn’t worth the effort.

Obama forget apologizing to the Afghan savages, what you need to do is apologize the the American people who you clearly do not not support.

this is what happens when the potus of the USA (and CinC of those men in harms way) bows to accept blame for false outrage over a false issue involving a falsely-termed “rop”

God Help those families. They will live with the results of this administration’s ineptitude forever

They’re going to great lengths to conceal the American nationality of the troops who are being murdered by these animals, and for purely political reasons.

Think about this...Muslims treat the Koran with such deep reverence that they have never, ever, in the history of time, bombed a mosque (be it Sunni or Shi’a), because there are always copies of the Koran’s inside.

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An’ go to your Gawd like a soldier.
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
So-oldier ~of~ the Queen!

——Kipling

“these animals” would like to get the Americans off Afghanistan streets so they can concentrate on turning American streets into the new battlefield, IMO.

Oh wait, I thought Obama, the candidate, said Afghanistan was the “good” war that we needed to fight, while horrible President Bush fought the “bad” war in Iraq./s

Damn fool Obama’s beliefs are like my wife’s sense of direction: If Obama says we should go North, head South as fast as you can.

Obama should personally apologize to the families of these two who were shot today.

"Let's leave there and Nuke it from Orbit; it's the only way to be sure". There is no salvation for this God-forsaken shithole, there are no inhabitants there worth saving. Nuke every mountaintop, valley and plain - EVERYWHERE. Nuke it until it glows in the dark.

When you tell the enemy when you are leaving and then apologize to them, they are greatly emboldened. I say get the hell out of there ASAP and let the savages kill each other.

I though Barky Boy was having secret talks with the Talibums. I guess his negotiations are not going too well either. Given their propensity to shoot anyone they don’t agree with, I think Barky Boy should be heading up the US negotiation team, personally.

God help us. Can anyone imagine any of the presidents before Carter even considering such a stupid notion of appologizing for the actions, no matter how inadvertant, of any of our troops? I cannot. We should have one position: mess with the bull you get the horns, and if you cannot handle that, GFY.

OUTRAGE: Navy SEALs Movie’s Terrorist is . . . JEWISH (Tortures, Murders CIA Agents, Smuggles Jihadists into U.S.)

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s official: “Act of Valor” is anti-Semitic tripe wrapped in the American flag with a Navy SEAL cherry on top. The movie, which debuts in theaters today, goes to great pains to tell you that the largest terrorist plot against America is perpetrated by a Jew.

Obama’s apology validates the radicals' medieval behavior. It will satisfy no one. But it will encourage the radicals to push the envelope further and further.

Then we will apologize more and more. And then the radicals will be offended more and more. And then the whole world will sink back into medieval times.

Charles Martel, where are you?

According to CNN, the Taliban has claimed responsibility. I don’t know if I care any more what contingent of goat herders did it.

Their blood is on this administrations hands. If this administration didn’t fall all over themselves trying to apologize for burning the Koran (as it turns out, burning IS one of the ways Muslims retire old Korans) and instead stated that it is a respectful way of treating an old or misused Koran, our soldiers would still be alive. These idiots keep admitting to wrong doing where there is NO wrong doing and insighting violence. They put our boys at risk for no reason other than stupidity.

It’d be a shame to sacrifice a dog’s life over there now. But Zero is sacrificing our top ranking military men, then groveling on his knees before the muslim filth, asking for forgiveness. FUO.

A low ranking haji can always pull out his gun and start shooting on his own, at any time, without having been explicitly ordered to by higher-ups. But I wouldn’t count on that being the case here, or any time we lose top people. It always looks suspicious.

Any man from full-bird colonel up should do all he can to conceal his whereabouts and travel plans from the treasonous SOBs in the WH (and comrades).

I’d love to hear a very solemn announcement made to those people along the lines of: “Ok. We are leaving. Cheer for now. But know this-If harm comes to the United States, and you are harboring or helping the perpetrators of said harm, we WILL be back. Not our soldiers, but our nukes.”

This is so sad. It makes me very angry. I don’t know why the USA, from Dessert Storm forward (and back to Vietnam too) doesn’t just go in and blow the country to smithereens and then get to heck out. I didn’t like it when either side has done this. Get the job done and get OUT. Like Newt says, we beat all the regimes of WWII in 3 years and 44 months. How long has Iraq and Afghanistan been going on? Should have been over with in less than 90 days each.

How the Koran is being treated should not even be an issue. I don't understand why the entire world gives in on this.

I have very strong, positive feelings about the European town my grandparents immigrated from. In fact, I'm quite emotional about it.

Do I have the right to kill anyone who insults that town? Do I have the right to kill anyone who burns a picture of that town?

Must Obama apologize if some American, accidentally or on purpose, says something bad about that town?

The entire world must stand up to the radicals: your hurt feelings do not trump the right of others to think and act freely.

Folks, you better get real. POTUS Obama has handed the Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan & Afghanistan over to the enemies of the United States of America by design. And....if you think the Bin Laden execution was not done in concert with the leaders and military of Pakistan, you are a blooming fool. Why? Bin Laden no longer served a useful purpose for the Pakistan govenrment who was protecting him, and....Obama needed the wipeout to help him politcally. I mean, come on, do you really think the raid that killed Bin Laden could have been pulled off without the aid and comfort of the army & government of Pakistan?

Obama and his Democrat, liberal, left wing ilk have place our nation in harm’s way purposely. You figure it out, I already have it wired. Two names to move forward for the USA, Santorum or Gengrich. Romney, no way!!! Voters in Michigan & Arizona, wise up, Romney is not the one. Why? Weak, just like John McCain!!!

Bleeding ourselves white over there isn't helping us here, especially with a president who is turning terrorists out of our prisons daily.

We need to do what many of us thought we should've done out the outset, instead of attempting to reform a country that can never be reformed. Tell Karzai that if we trace a single bombing back to his country he'd better evacuate Kabul immediately because we're about to make his capitol look exactly like the rest of that God forsaken sh#t hole, and from 30,000 feet.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! Was it because it was the only way our first moHAMmaden president would allow active Navy SEALS to be involved? That’s another thing. Doesn’t appearing in the movie sorta blow their cover?

If we would simply develop our own oil and gas reserves in America there would be little need to be involved in these God-cursed countries.

Our military needs to develop some new recruiting slogans to reflect the changes made during the Obama era. For example, ‘’Join the Army and DIE! Either the enemy will kill you or our president’s abject apologies will!’’

If Obama says we should go North, head South as fast as you can.

Reminds me of a scene in a movie I saw as a kid - early sixties, I guess. A group of men are in a truck which breaks down in the Sahara, and they can only restore second gear. So they go grinding along and come to a pipeline which they know is near a city, but they don't know which way. One guy says "this way". An arab in their group disagrees, and asks him if he is willing to stake their lives on it. He replies, "Are you?" and the arab says "Yes, I am" so they go that way, which of course turns out to be right.

Can anybody ID this movie? It was more or less a B movie, I think, but it was in color and had decent production values. All I remember is this scene.
