Here’s an interesting fact: the majority of US deaths in the decade-long war in Afghanistan have occurred in the two years since the Moonbat Messiah’s Ascension to the White House.
Of the 858 U.S. deaths since Obama’s inauguration, 791 have been combat-related. This means that for the 1,241 combat-related deaths that occurred since the Afghanistan war began in October 2001, about 64 percent happened in the two years since Obama took office.
Last year was the deadliest for U.S. forces in Afghanistan, with 497 combat and non-combat fatalities. Improvised explosive devices (IEDs), or homemade bombs, continue to be the number one killer of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.
Thanks to absurd rules of engagement and a military brass consisting not of soldiers but of dhimmified politicians, there is no chance of a victorious resolution. Americans have been dying in Afghanistan for one reason: the handlers of our farcical Commander in Chief think it would hurt him with independent voters if he brought them home.
What of all those peacenik promises we heard from the Nobel Laureate during his last campaign?
The Obama administration has said it is committed to having Afghan forces in the lead of their own security by 2014 and has added that it will maintain a long-term relationship with Afghanistan. … Nevertheless, Gen. Petraeus and a top-Pentagon official have indicated that they would be open to maintaining jointly-operated military bases in Afghanistan beyond 2014.
That is, the war in Afghanistan will go on forever. It has become a federal program and is therefore immortal — at least until the USA declares bankruptcy.
The next time a terror attack is launched from some Stone Age Islamic backwater, we’ll know what to do. Rather than waste years, billions of dollars, and hundreds of precious American lives trying to civilize corrupt savages, hopefully we will have the resolve to respond appropriately by bombing it into oblivion.
