August 16, 2012: Seven American soldiers were killed Thursday when their helicopter crashed in Kandahar Province in southern Afghanistan, U.S. officials said. The Taliban claimed responsibility for shooting down the helicopter, although the insurgency often exaggerates its victories and is quick to claim responsibility for any incident involving foreign troop deaths.

The area where the helicopter went down is an insurgent hotbed and supply route, lying north of Kandahar city near volatile Zabul and Uruzgan provinces.

This story is still developing. R.I.P.

Next time someone wants to “nation build” in a culture dedicated to the values and customs of the eighth century, sens thirty thousand laptops with a good internet connection instead of thirty thousand young brave Americans. The whole place is not worth the death of one American.

Could someone kindly identify the strategy and the national interest which it advances for which these seven Americans died?

Seven of our best gone — for NO GOOD REASON — and meanwile, we have to watch and stomach 1.7 million parasitic leeches worming into our home, here to destroy us.

It’s just about more than I can take anymore.

I really think we are long past due for a total and comprehensive RESET of this American government that currently rules over us.

“although the insurgency often exaggerates its victories and is quick to claim responsibility for any incident involving foreign troop deaths.”

Grtatuitous addition to protect a ‘Rat president close to the election.

President Bush had good intentions but what a dang mess. Bush never should have started this war with political correctness at the forefront. We should have gone in there, bomb the hell out of them and got out. What a shame that 1.7 trillion dollars later and a whole bunch of good people dying and we still have not accomplished a thing.

This is an outrage. The one topic I can’t help but post to. Iraq has also gone to hell, which many, including myself, predicted.

This war belongs to both Bush and Obama. The country would have been better off if Bush had done absolutely nothing after 9-11. I grieve for these young souls and I grieve for those who have been maimed. All for less than nothing.

That sh*thole is not worth one drop of American Blood.

Hey Barry Hussein...time for a nice round of golf! Just don't let Mooochelle catch you eating a Twinkie.

God Bless these brave men and their families.

God help our country.

I have a young friend over there. His first month in they lost 10 troops. He was in the group drop in Italy some months back where troops were lost. This kid is a hero to me! In just a few months he’s been through more than many of us old vets.

Please, please everyone keep the troops in your prayers! They have become invisible to far too many Americans.

Sorry for the double post. I wanted to change “kid” to “young man” since that’s what he is now. I still think of him as a child. I’ve known his family all my life.
