Anyone killing any islamic terrorist, regardless of gender or age, should receive a medal and a $10,000 check.

Included are those who support islamic terrorists, directly or indirectly, and any symphatizer.

The only Americans against this solution are the liberals.

Is the money coming from YOUR bank account you silly socialist?

Is it? We are wasting over $45 million a day on these eternal wars because we are STUPID.

Our troops are trained killers that have invaded THEIR COUNTRY.

WE are terrorists ourselves you fool, we are high tech, well trained and equipped state supported terrorists.

Guess what knucklehead....we are creating more enemies than we are destroying and will lose these wars ...period.

We cannot stay there forever and we are $13 trillion past broke, we are defeating ourselves......you foolish retarded american

Families of the soldiers killed during the battle said they were briefed Wednesday by Army officials on their call not to reprimand the officers for dereliction of duty. They were told punishing the three would have a chilling effect on other battlefield commanders who have to make crucial decisions.


The attack at the small village of Wanat near the Pakistan border left nine American soldiers dead and 27 wounded. Their platoon-size unit was attacked by as many as 200 insurgents during the early morning hours of July 13, 2008.

U.S. Central Command, the military organization managing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, directed a Marine Corps general last September to investigate the battle after families expressed dissatisfaction with an earlier inquiry by the Army.

The investigation by Marine Lt. Gen. Richard Natonski concluded that the brigade, battalion and company commanders should be punished for having too few troops at the remote outpost and for not supplying them properly, according to the family members.

I wonder if any and every battle costing US lives could be attributed to a failure on someones part?

You are a fool for not reading the article first before foaming at the mouth. This happened in 2008. Obama wasn't the President.
