Exactly. We should have left after the punitive expedition phase, and before the meals on wheels phase got started.

Oh, and Hamid Karzai is nothing more than the mayor of Kabul without us. And maybe not even that.

A little education instead of nuclear brain surgery applied in the right locales not so long ago might have made it a bigger mess for all of us in the long run.. but it also might have gotten the job done a lot quicker.. and greatly reduced the likelihood of future reinfestation. who knows, a small nuke at Bora Bora, glaze a few high mountain valleys in Waziristan.. ya never know.. but you can be sure someone will have to pass thru there again.. history repeats itself.. and then some.. this place has been a ‘rhoid on the rump of humanity and then some..

EXACTLY

The MSM have had their orders to not mention the Taliban knowing that this admin and the white house has tried to tell us the Taliban is not the enemy and we should do a prison release for them while they still have an American soldier

AH YES Remember the American soldier who is being held over there by them but the MSM have hardly mentioned it while if it were Bush in the MSM would hammer Bush on why has he not been released.

Last night certain issues about who our allies are and how we helped our enemies and radical islam was exposed and the MSM today have virtually covered it all up like the crap they are

“The error was inadvertent; I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible,” the letter said”

From the article below this one. So the moron says on the one hand inadvertent and on the other hold them responsible. He is a cave in artist. After he loses this election he should go run against Karzai. He’s more at home with them anyway.

June 9, 1999
joint statement of 13 conservative Christian groups. In the words of Paul M. Weyrich, president of the Free Congress Association:

“Until the Army withdraws all official support and approval from Witchcraft, no Christian should enlist or re-enlist in the Army, and Christian parents should not allow their children to join the Army. An Army that sponsors Satanic rituals is unworthy of representing the United States of America.”

There is absolutely no reason to sacrifice American lives for a conflict we have no intention of winning with an already announced withdrawal date.

All that we are doing now is allowing free target practice.

As always, we should have gone in, lopped off heads, promised to return for more of the same if they bothered us again, and then gotten ourselves out of there with the reprisal victory that we had won within months of entry.

Now we know.

Looks like 0bama found a way to get out of Afghanistan.. Have a Quran burning and ‘accidentally reveal on purpose’ that it happened. We’ll be out of Afghanistan by the election, just as 0bama planned it. And with our tails between our legs, but would 0bama have it any other way?

This is no time to apologize or show remorse.

Start by penalizing Afghanistan a million dollars a day until the protesters are gone and charge them for all damages.

If they don't come through, then take military action against one of their units closest to Karzai - start by leveling one of their barracks.

These people only respond to strength and force. If we don't take tough action now the next time the radicals will do worse.

I heard a female comedian talk about Afghanistan after doing a USO tour.

She said.....

“People ask me how much money it would take to “fix” Afghanistan? I don’t know. I want you to imagine a number - first number that pops into your head when I ask “How much would it take to “fix” the moon?”. Same difference.”

You know, if any country could benefit from being slagged into a glass surface, this would be the one. The best thing for the U.S. is to completely pull out right now, and warn the motherfuchers if a single U.S. citizen or piece of property is harmed in the future from anyone originating from this miserable piece-of-shite country, then immediate slagging would occur.

No.

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.”

Winston Churchill

It appears that a U.S. officer has been isolated as having given the order for the burning. Yet there's no proof yet on who did what....just charges flying around.

Amazingly, I don't see one word in this thread about the poor SOB U.S. soldiers who are going to get the pipe on this. There'll be a goat or goats who will be drawn and quartered by the Obama administration.....including his minions, spokesmen, czars, cabinet secretaries and slavering tools in the traitorous media....all of whom will demand the heads, the careers, the lives, the blood, the very breath of any of our guys over there who (gasp) played a part in this world-shaking, horrendous burning of Rome....oops, the Koran.

Even the perfumed princes of the military class will not protect their under-officers and individual troops in this case.....it's too toxic politicallyfor them to step forward and defend any subordinate(s).

We are led by by too many eunuchs both politically and militarily. Pity the poor army patsies who will be fingered by the Emperor Nero Zero to be thrown to the snarling lions in the world coliseum.

The moslems have been taxing, humiliating and killing non-moslems, burning their religious texts/books, and attacking & destroying their places of worship for centuries! Acts that have continued to this day in more than a few moslem countries.

Yet they expect & in fact demand the same people they call “najess” (impure), “Kafir” (disbeliever) & Jahiel (ignorant) to help them when they need it! It is time to give them a dose of their own medicine.

Time to decamp and leave these fools to their fate of living in mud huts and killing each other. Nation building is a failure.

Sad to say this as a retired military, but you are correct. If those savages want to live in the 6th century, let them live that way. Just leave enough small arms ammo and C4 to blow up all of their fellow savages. Take a fully loaded squadron of bombers filled with queerans with self lighting fuel and fuses and drop them over the entire country.

You know, I am so sick and tired of the murderers overseas who call themselves "holy" warriors for Allah. They call for us to be killed over burning pieces of paper. They are such cowards.

I'm tempted to go out a burn of copy of the Koran myself just to see if they come for me.

There are numerous schools of Islamic thinking and differences of opinion, but broadly speaking there are two preferable options. Muslims are advised to wrap a worn and unusable copy of the Koran in cloth and to bury it in such a way that people do not walk over the place where the Koran is buried. That would be considered disrespectful. The other option is to wrap the Koran and place it in a moving body of water, with some jurists advising that the Koran be tied to an object so that it sinks. Where these two options are not available, some scholars do argue that Muslims can burn a Koran =http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/how-to-properly-dispose-of-a-worn-koran/article2345586/
