No one else is reporting our losses. Four this morning and another green on blue. Mourning and praying for families and buddies.

Few things anger me more than sacrificing the best our country has to offer in a war we’ve already decided to lose.

Last month, an Afghan believed to be a soldier killed three Americans in Gardez.

Reuters said that if the gunman turns out to have been an Afghan security guard for coalition troops, it would be the ninth insider attack this year bring the death toll of foreign personnel to 14.

That is down dramatically from last year, when a spate of so-called insider attacks prompted NATO to curtail some joint operations with Afghan government forces.

That's not very reassuring.

Just read on FB by an Army wife that death benefits are not covered with their pay? Uh, Boehner, we are at war, remember?

I never could figure out why we went into Afghanistan. It would’ve made so much more sense to keep them in their third world cesspool, and us stay as far away as possible.

I think we’re taking so long to get out because of all the equipment we have left there. Contract a bunch of flatbeds and cargo ships. Send over enough people to drive everything out. Tell the bad guys and the nations that have to be traversed that there will be a steady flight of B-52s over the convoys and they will be armed with neutron bombs. Anybody gets in the way, we attack with neutron bombs. Once we’re out, we will then come back and punish you with the big firecrackers. What? They already hate us. Protect our people and equipment.

Yes, the MSM no longer reports these deaths, but under Bush they were the leading story.

We have no more business there and should have left a long time ago.
