The USA is getting what it deserves in Afghaistan

The USA is an arrogant disgusting nation and is already defeated but too cowardly to admit it.

The face of America is UGLY and its rotten heart is empty. TIME will defeat our high tech army as it crumbles into the future

Every soldier it sends is an invader and there is nothing they will do but go home as LOSERS.

No GOD blesses Amerika at all....

You have an amazing knack of multiplying everything you know into a bigger blurt of your take on the world.
I suppose your catch phrase would be; "Never let the truth get in the way of a good story".
