Lets talk about it then...

Incompetence such as that displayed by Karzai? The guy who knows we have no desire to maintain a permanent presence and yet he broadcasts his consent for the US to maintain nine bases after 2014? Or incompetence such as the Afghan military who are responsible for the security situation in Kabul?

Bottom line: We need to leave and not look back. If we ever need to retaliate or surgically remove a threat, we have drones that can do the job. Let Karzai play tough guy when it is only Afghan lives at stake.

I recently visited this website about diet and lifestyle change can decrease cancer probability?. I say bullsh!t!!(Slight change to what I usually talk about hating Islam).

Take Steve Jobs for example?. We all saw his diet. Zen meditation. Exercise. Came down with pancreatic Cancer. 54 years old.

Linda McCartney. Vegetarian. Non Smoker-Breast Cancer 40's.

Look at Keith Richards. Have you ever seen that guy without a f^cking cigarette in his mouth?. Drinks like a fish and tried every drug imaginable. He must close to 70 now.

Eliminating Cancer is not just diet and exercise-I think genetics is more determinative.

No let's talk about the incompetence displayed by OUR forces. Same routes day after day? So predictable that a kid with a loaded toyota could time his attack to the minute? Karzai is an AH, but whoever was in charge of this daily fiasco was worse. Fcuk the Afghan Military. Our guy's job was to protect convoy lives and he had it in his hands, with due caution and planning, to do so. Mix it up a little bit. Ever see Conspiracy Theory? Jerry never went home the same way two days in a row. It was that simple. Aszholes.

Are you in the midst of a mid-life crisis? If cancer don't get you, something else will. Get some ice cream. Smell the flowers. Check out the clouds. They keep reminding you of something pleasant. And more importantly, stay clear of Dearborn Mich. Is that with an "e"?

I don't know who plans the routes but my understanding is that until the final drawdown in 2014, Afghan forces take the lead on all military ops. Go ahead and blame dead guys for getting dead but we need to go back to being the bull in the china shop or we need to end this deployment right now. Our troops do not need to be at-risk...Karzai knows his days are numbered the minute we leave.

Oh, you don't know who planned the routes. American troops, armored suburbans, contractors and you think the Afghans were directing that show? Strange how no Afghanis were KIA. Except civilians. Slither on, slippery one. Explain the big picture again for us poor folk.

Strange has finally set in? What I meant was, we were done the moment we announced the date of withdrawal. We might as well have said "now" and started shipping home the good shit. For the last year we've had a 50/50 chance that any operation could have ended with blue on blue casualties. If they're not allowed to break things there's no reason for Americans to be there.

You were right about the poor tradecraft...if my life were on the line I'd be setting my own route.

>It was the third abduction of U.N. peacekeepers in the tense border region since March when 21 Filipino peacekeepers were held for three days by rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad. Another group of four Filipino peacekeepers was abducted on May 7 by the same rebel group and released Sunday.

Ladsous called the latest abduction “a very serious incident” that illustrates the very difficult conditions in the area of separation, which is experiencing spillover from the Syrian conflict.<

Looking more and more like Assad is the best choice for the region. These "rebels" have no respect for boundaries or established agreements. That does not bode well for Israel. Go Assad. Go Russia.
