8 American Troops Killed in Afganistan

Why not just take their rifles, line them up in formation and paint targets on their chests for the terrorists. I mean really! Is it not about time for him to stop his stonewalling and do his job?

  • And the sad part was is they were picking up to leave that area around tomorrow and the insurgents even knew that but decided to attack anyways. It was in the mountianous region near Pakastan and it was so bad the medvac helicopters couldn't land for almost 2hrs to pick up the wounded. Imagine how many of those could possibly been saved. Something needs to be done and quick. Obama is showing his true colors and don't even bring up Petraeous, as Obama can over ride him!!

  • It is often said that Patreaus will side with whom ever is in power to curry favor. I believe he is proving that point as of late, sad to say. Even sadder is he is putting American troops in danger, troops in his charge, to kiss political heiney.

    You reply is just plain "stupid". You even don't know the Generals name who is commander of the forces in Afghanistan.


    You can send millions of troops there it will not help. We need to change the plan. ~respect the locals, earn their respect US military needs locals to win the war.


    I did not vote for Obama but we need to have new plan.

  • 8:46 do you understand the first part of her name? usmc0351, do you even know what that means? Maybe you should research it, and show some respect to a wife!

    And your reply could use some work as well. A new plan means nothing if the troops there are stranded and all picked off one by one before it is even formulated!

  • Nope, NOT NObama, he's too busy going to Coppenhagen to get his narcassism fix!! Did anyone honestly think that NObama gives a damn about our troops? He is too busy feeding his ego.....ie ALL the visits on Letterman and ALL his TV appearances.....he has NO time to be pres!

  • Obama is waiting for a plan the leaves him blameless if the outcome is bad a hero if it works out.

    The reason usmc0351 brought up Petraeous is because some lib will come on here and say, "well Petraeous says...." She was stopping it before it even started.

  • I don't even know what to say. This is so sad. My thoughts and prayers go out to those that knew and loved those that were lost, and also to those that are sacrificing on our nation's behalf (including the families that have to watch their loved ones leave to protect the freedoms we have come to take for granted).
