Gritting my teeth and very saddened by this morning’s news.
Our “friends “ are killing more of us in Afghanistan than our enemies.
Why are we still there with these unworthy ,untrustworthy,two-faced , double crossing, animals anyway.
Bring our men home, there isn’t anything we can do in this toilet of a country.
Any names yet? I am holding my breath.
Me too. Son #1 is in the area, but we do not know exactly where.
More tragic news this morning. Young Americans are dieing as a consequence of bad policy, and poor political and military leadership. Our soldiers are being killed by their “allies”. The prior American commander’s response (General Casey) was to actually come out with a manual that encouraged American soldiers to become “tolerant” of Afghan homosexual practices especially with children.He actually said “cultural misunderstandings” were causing these murders. This no doubt endeared Casey with his Obama masters. Wonder how Caesar would have dealt with this problem.
Prayers for both of you. Our son-in-law just rotated back to the States.
Its time to bring all of our folks home from that sewer. If anything needs to be done there...do it from 30,000 feet AGL.
Julius? Which Caesar are talking about, sir?
Caesar would probably have dealt with the problem simply. Any traitor killing a Roman would have his entire clan exterminated.
We could take a census of Afghanistan, recording the fingerprints, DNA samples, and retina scans of every person in every village, and recording the clan relationships. Any village giving trouble to the census takers would be leveled. Any person attempting to enter a military compound, regardless of uniform, would be retina scanned. If his prints were not in the database, he would be arrested. If he caused trouble inside the compound, his entire extended family could be made to pay a price.
My nephew deploys in a month . . .
My son also.
Thankfully my 1st Lt. oldest just separated after 3 tours of the toilet bowl and is home on my couch chillin’. My second (an E-5), after 3 tours and re-upping to go back for the 3rd one, just landed a gig training reservist back in his home state (4 hours from house) for his last 2 1/2 years of active duty.
Another Green-On-Blue Attack: Afghan Police Officer Opens Fire On U.S. Troops Killing Two Americans
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) A police officer opened fire on U.S. and Afghan forces inside a police headquarters in eastern Afghanistan on Monday, sparking a firefight that killed two U.S. troops and two other Afghan policemen. The attacker was also killed in the shootout, officials said.
Feinstein: All vets *might* have PTSD and thus all vets should be ineligible to own guns
Her words last Thursday at a Senate hearing:
SEN. DIANNE FEINSTEIN: with the advent of PTSD, which I think is a new phenomenon as a product of the Iraq War, its not clear how the seller or transferrer of a firearm covered by this bill would verify that an individual was a member, or a veteran, and that there was no impairment of that individual with respect to having a weapon like this.
In other words, Feinstein is proposing to bar *all* retired servicemembers from gun ownership until and unless theyve been proven not to have PTSD.
The problem with her logic is that PTS is suffered by many, many civilians. The APA should classify it better but they will do so according to who screams the loudest or pays the most.
It is well past time we bring home all our troops, and just drop bombs on the A-holes. Unfortunately, Obozo has other plans.
Get the troops out, then nuke the poppy fields.
And, if Karzi is standing at ground zero, so much the better.
Thank God your sons are home and safe.
With the threat of liberals every election turning against the US and our constitutional freedom, I could not recommend military service to my sons without the warning of presidents or majority politicans turning against them in the future.
I remembered what Clinton did against the US military before Bush became president. I had to warn them that we are a divided nation - there is no real side of “fighting for freedom” in the US. Half of us are against American freedom - fighting for Marxist/globalist oppression. Traitors are only an election away.
