Biden is too stupid to die. I hope nobody else was injured.

But this shows you exactly what our enemy thinks of us now and how weak they believe us to be.

Why are they still mad?

Didn’t candidate obamar say we were going to be out of there in 16 months if he was elected? I am sure we’re out of there if that’s what he said.

They usually refer to mortar rounds as rockets. If so, this is normal day to day routine.

Ah...that would be soverign U.S. territory, and an act of war...

Now who wants to start the pool as to when bHo decides to call it something else...somethinnnng more warm and fuzzy?

Instead, I think "they" are bankin' on bHo being a weenie, runnin' scared, and pullin' out.

Yo...obama...the song goes:

...rockets red glare, and bombs bursting in air...gave proof through the night, that our Flag was STILL THERE!!!!"

I'm JUST sayin'....THAT's how the song goes!

Big deal. Thats like saying a rocket was fired at the state capitol while Skeeter was living in California.

Hardly makes Biden a combat vet.

I thought it was odd that we were told Biden was visiting before he went. Normally they’ve announced those visits after they started.

The skinny is that the terrorists are still firing the occasional rockets and mortars at the bases, but it only gets in the news when someody like "Bite Me" is in town.

Buncha smartasses...;-)

Yep. Ol' Bite Me and Friends caused some of our roads to be closed off, making it a pain to get around base.

We're glad to see them head to DoS-Land. I'm sure the roads on the Embassy Compound are all screwed up now.

We'll be even happier to see 'em leave Iraq.

I think they know when anyone important is coming by watching the aircraft coming in and the speeding convoys. I bet it was a circus of security activity.

No problem. We'll try to return him to the States as fast as we can.

We really don't want him here. They screw up our roads and make things difficult.
