Afghanistan = Vietnam II
I couldn’t even speak the words I feel about Obama and his ROE. Makes me sick.
If this is the best Obama will allow the troops, I prefer they come home...we can fight the damn Muzzies here.
Round up any that complain of our laws and way of life, then send them home.
They attack us here, we are at war, so we KILL them.
Our troops are having to act like police officers of the USA, but they are policing and rebuilding another land.
This, at the cost of our sons, daughters, husbands, wives, brother, sisters and neighbors blood.
There is not enough money in the world for that blood.
Obama is playing like he’s something— when he’s clueless, he can’t lead our troops, bring them home.
Fixed it for you.
You would think our soldiers are engaged in a paint ball contest rather than a war. This is outrageous. Add to that is the even more sickening mantra from pukey Libtards offering that we are 'good' and we are determined to show the world how much better we are because of our humanity. (Our enemy has their own laugh track for this one.)
OMG; God Bless and Save our Troops. And I challenge anyone's patriotism who has a 'Support our Troops' sticker on his car; and is a Lib who supports Obama; and/or has an Obama sticker pasted front/back or center. . .
He is allowing them to KILL our children!
Under Obama, Rules of Engagement in Afghan War Are Political Correctness Which Slow Down US Troops
Amazing Sh*t !!!
While the establishment of ROE is done by the admin in power, I fault the brass in the P’gon for this PC bullsh*t.
The MO in the P’gon for most officers is kiss a** to get promoted so they stick to PC battlefield tactics instead of tell it like it is...
The “Peter Principal” alive and well in the P’gon...
If my CO gave me orders to follow these suicidal ROE I would telling him to kiss my behind. I’d immediately resign and challenge the ROE with the help of a good attorney.
And this is one of many reasons that even if I could join the military right now, I would not. I love my country and I’ll glady fight for her, but I will not be turned into cannon fodder so some political wuss can tell the world what a great humanitarian he is.
Perhaps it’s time for soldiers to go Galt?
Grounds for Impeachment? Aiding and abetting the enemy-
Art.III Sec. 3: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.
Apparently these rules of engagement in Afghanistan come from the commander in the field, General Stanley McChrystal:
“THE RULES: Under new guidelines, NATO troops are not allowed to fire at the enemy without making a “positive identification” and seeing evidence “of hostile intent.” In practice, that means they can’t shoot if they don’t see the enemy physically carrying a gun or they personally see him drop one.
Some troops say it handicaps their ability to fight because an insurgent firing from inside a house could then lay down his weapon and walk out unarmed without being shot at.
WHY THEY WERE CHANGED: It was public outrage in Afghanistan over civilian deaths that prompted the top NATO commander, U.S. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, last year to tighten the rules, including curbs on the use of airstrikes and other weaponry if civilians are at risk.”
Maybe this is not the best way to win the war in Afghanistan, but it is the way that McChrystal wants to do things. Would you rather have him calling the shots or our inept president?
The ONLY reason Obama wants us in Afghanistan is to get more of our troops killed. Soldiers tend to vote Republican and we can’t have any of that.
