September 2010 has been the deadliest September yet for U.S. troops in the 9-year-long war in Afghanistan as U.S. troops continued to be killed at a pace of slightly higher than one a day during the Obama presidency.

I guess killing soldiers is A-OK when there's a Democrat in the whitehouse, huh?

No votes yet

As I said back then most of the protests were purely political and wasn't "for the soldiers".

Where are all the General Betray-us ads?

I've long gone on the record that the Iraq war was going to be a short duration and that the Afghanistan war extend far beyond the current President's term (yes even a 2nd term).

I can tell you right now the stuff we're building out here isn't coming down next year. I'll be home for the walleye run Billy if you want to hear about it.

Some good questions are raised here too: http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/248433/why-he-sending-them-charle...

Is there anything you need?

I cant do much...but I could send something....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

But I have everything I need. Technically I am in the biggest city in all of Helmand Province.

There are people out here doing some great work. My Marines never cease to amaze me as to what they can take and how hard they work.

Also impressive are the Bahraini's. They have more than proven themselves and do their Kingdom proud.

I would find that very interesting Mikey.

Have you noticed they're not talking about reinstating the draft.

I told everyone on here back then it was just a political ploy to hurt the President that ultimately would have hurt servicemembers.

Yes...the patriotic liberals were trying to re-instigate the 60's style anti-war movement....

They also lement that the military is currently made up of a majority of conservatives....

It will be funny when Gen Patraeus and the administration go head to head over withdrawals prematurely.

They painted themselves into a corner removing McChrystal. Now if they fire Patraeus they will be viewed as military obstructionists and they will be questioned about their running of the war even more.

Which, if anyone recalls, I criticized the "air raid" strategy of Biden. They have stepped up the air campaign in Pakistan and it doesn't seem to be working out too well.

I said then and I say it now. You won't make any positive affects unless you have boots on the ground. There has been no successful campaigns with "air only". It's only been with people on the ground has a military campaign been successful.

All I know is-this years not going well for the democrats' party.
