The Russians discovered that Afghanistan is a tough nut to crack...some of the finest warriers in the world live in those mountains.

The US Army and Marines cracked Afghanistan open like Humpty Dumpty; and now we are having trouble putting it back together again...no wonder.

This is not a place for politicizing and sniping. We must support our country's goals to disengage, and leave a viable government.

The Taliban sympathizer Obama brought the surge of US troops but then prevent them from using air strikes, artillery, tanks, missiles and even light rifle firearms against the terrorists that enjoyed Miranda rights from Obama. However, who will save US troops that are closed in the wire fenced camps and subjected to Jihadist all out war in the name of the Afghan Mozlem Brother culture of the 7th century? While every US troops is trying to hide in their surrounded bases to save his life from the Mozlem vandals terrorist that seek their blood, no one of them know why Obama is keeping them in the bases as hostages with no mission whatsoever. Why should more US die in vain in the hands of the Mozlem Brother terrorist of the? Taliban that infiltrated by the afghan troops? Obama does not allow our US troops fighting the Taliban terrorist that keep their attacks with the support of the Afghan and Pakistan Jihadist regimes. Will the American people stand up to save the lives of our brave US troops from the apologizer in Chief Obama who keeps apologizing to the terrorists of Afghanistan? Fly our US troops back home today and save their precious lives for the Taliban that Obama and Hillary claimed to be the new allies of Obama as replacement of Israel.

********** REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER **********

1- When you think of 9/11,think of muslims.
2- When you think of muslims think of 9/11.
3- When you think of Barrack HUSSEIN Obama, think of 1 & 2.

HUSSEIN is un-American.
.

The ghetto crowd does not care what happens to this country or anywhere else, as long as HUSSEIN keeps increasing their welfare benefits AND keeps increasing taxes on hard working citizens.
