Pull Our Troops Out Of Afghanistan

Posted in politics by roving on August 28, 2009

I was for the Afghanistan war. Also the Iraq war. As far as I’m concerned we did find weapons of mass destruction in the form of yellow cake. So the Iraq war did as it was supposed to do. Take down Saddam and get the weapons of mass destruction. The yellow cake is now safely in Canada.  It was kept quiet due to fears of the convoys being attacked before they were able to exit the country.

Our goal was supposed to get those responsible for 9/11 in Afghanistan. Chiefly, Osama Bin Laden.  U.S. casulties were relatively low considering it was a war after all.  Remember the nightly body counts the MSM feed us every night? Ted Koppel would read the list of all service men and women who were killed when Bush was president.

My how things have changed now that “The One” is in office. We no longer have the daily body counts from since the wars have started.  Code Pink is no longer out there defacing federal property of screaming in the faces of recruiters, we no longer have people taking to the streets this time calling Obama the baby killer even though the wars go on.

Since Obama has become Commander in Chief, the war in Afghanistan is no longer about finding Osama because Obama doesn’t think he is relevant any longer. He just said he was relevant during the campaign to get a few more votes.

The reason I want our troops out of Afghanistan is because Obama is getting our people killed. My guess is its intentional. Its obvious he has contempt for our military and country.  All one needs to do is follow his speeches when he travels overseas.

Reading the Miranda warnings to captured prisoners. What the hell? I remember when I served and being told I didn’t have the same rights at the civilians. Not sure how it is now but when I served we were told no interviews. If for some reason a news camera was around and the reporter wanted to ask questions, we were not allowed to talk with them. Freedom of speech? Not allowed in the military.  Civilians have their constitution and the military has their own. So why do we give the enemy civilian constitutional rights?

Retreating from the enemy if they enter a village or house in the hopes the enemy will come out and chase after you. This is a joke. The enemy are cowards. They don’t fight in the open.  They use human shields and go into buildings like places of worship or schools knowing we wont do anything about it.

I wonder how many of the enemy were able to later kill one of our people because we let them go?

Obama is wanting our military to fight a war with both their hands tied behind their back.  This is why Afghanistan will be lost. Much like Vietnam where we fought a war with one hand tied behind our backs.

Get our people out and get them out now unless Obama is serious and really wants to win. The way its looking, Obama is purposely losing.

    If the US is going to run the war the way the Soviets did we should pull out immediately. The war’s only purpose now is to serve Obama and the DNC. It’s their war; and they are incompetent and untrustworthy.
