No US Congressmen or US Senator can ever justify the sacrifice of 2040 of our best US troops for nothing achieved for America. Thousands of our brave US troops are sacrificing their precious lives under Obama’s incompetent command for no mission, no objective and no gain for the American national security while Obama and US Congress show their apathy about the major loss of lives of our US troops in vain either by suicide or under attack of Afghan troops that are trusted by US troops. When US civilian advisor is killed by Jihadist Afghan female police officer and American Seal hero is making suicide in Afghanistan it is time to bring our US troops home and save their lives from the biggest defeat in US history to thousands of Jihadist Taliban Mozlem Brothers terrorists that already took control of Afghanistan and will never stop hating America and be our enemies. The tragic death of US Seal Commander hero represents the defeat to the Taliban Mozlem Brother terrorist of US troops under the failed command of Obama who keeps appeasing the Taliban terrorists and works hard for their release from prisons in America Pakistan and Afghanistan as heroes in return for their agreement to US troops ousting from Afghanistan as soon as possible. In fact, the Taliban Mozlem Brother terrorists are able to burn schools, threaten and terrorize teachers and students all over Afghanistan not only for the Afghan girls but also for the Afghan boys. US troops sacrifice their lives in Afghanistan are not fighting the Taliban terrorists that are able to increase their control over Afghanistan schools and preventing Afghan boys from going to school. US troops were already defeated and lost their mission in Afghanistan and US Congress must bring them back now.

25,580 died in traffic accidents in just the first 9 months of 2012. More die every month than the entire time we have been in Afghanistan.
There were 14,738 murders in the US in 2010

All these numbers are too high but why not address the larger numbers?

To understand what is happening, one must think like those in charge. What would happen if Obama immediately pulled American troops out of Afghanistan? As happened when the peace accords were signed in Geneva and Viet Nam fell in 24 months, back to square one with Taliban. Couple this with Obama's snub of Netanyahu and his audience with Abbas and other Palestinian leaders. It would give the impression Obama is favouring muslims. Factor in the fact when American military was in Iraq, Iran was surrounded on three sides by American presence. With Iraq free of great satan troops, Iran's western border is open. with American troops out of Afghani territory, Iran can breath easier which is will happen eventually but Obama can't move too quickly or he can be accused of muslim favouritism. Wait until his next half term and he will move but he has to keep up appearances. Appearances are very important.

Here, muzzie, muzzie, come out wherever you are, come and bomb us whenever you want and we'll roll over and play dead, those of us who aren't dead. You invade us but we'll leave you alone. That works real good with lions and tigers in an antelope herd, don't it? Shoot us good muzzies and we won't shoot back.
