Get out now! No foreign invader has ever won here and it is responsible for the economic collapse of the U.S.S.R.
Remember what Churchill said about Americans? It still is true.

If you say the Pope is dead, give some details how he died and let others verify the DNA of such person.

Most importantly, show pictures of dead Pope.

If Obama said bin Laden was dead, tell exactly in full description when and how he died and show pictures.

Any people could say they got bin Laden before Seal Team said so, because no one saw the thing as they all said the same thing--typically from the mouth of Obama.

Anybody could claim credit and say bin Laden had died, just like Obama and any Seal team member--it makes no difference.

Any people can make movies like Hollywood about shooting bin Laden dead as anyone can portray such story, without verifiable evidences, real dead body pictures and DNA.

When people are not there to witness,what happens to the disappearance of bin Laden is any people's say and claim--yet Obama would want to claim it without proving a thing.

There are a lot of pictures and videos about US military activities as USA military has been active in that region, from Afghanistan to Pakistan.

People are not sure what US military helicopters and aircrafts flying missions are of over there .

People can take videos of any US helicopters flying over that region by saying it was the raid of bin Laden.

If Seal said bin Laden was unarmed but willing to surrender, then it would not make sense by shooting him dead, as it was a golden opportunity to wind up him alive for a better deal of credible position and convincing presentation --thus what they said amounts to "0ne thing does not follow the other thing as they said it."
Hence it does cast doubts.

Why is it so difficult to give DNA evidence and dead body pictures?

But by saying shooting him dead while he could be captured alive further arises the more doubts and a lot of skeptics and questions because you try to make confusion instead, in regard to situations and circumstances SAID BY YOU--you said he was unarmed and yet he WOULD BE captured very EASILY--but you shot him dead with no dead pictures--why and how do you convince PEOPLE ?

When no one is around, anyone can say anything.

The decision to stay or leave weighs heavy on Obama. Would I get more votes by staying or leaving?

I don't know who's side Obamaloney is on. He's wants to put the Marines on trial for burning the Korans that had encoded enemy messages in them. Does that sound right to you?

ABC, NBC, CBS used to run daily deaths and total counts when Bush was President

now,

the deaths barely get 30 seconds on the news.

There seems to be no interest in winning in Afghanistan. Obama appears to not know what to do. If this is the way it's going to be with our men getting ambushed by so called allies then it's time to get the hell out. I see no future here. Bring em home!

And the President never mentions this. Do we just
ignore the fact that our boys are nothing but
"setting ducks" to those they are told are our
friends? Does anyone care anymore? Those
left wings TV stations ignore this, and because
the dems are only glued to them, who hears and who
cares??? Set down with them, and you get a bullet
in the head! When our own people setting on their as$es safe in their own homes, don't even
talk about it. Oh yes, its time OUR boys
speak before they are killed!!!! Allies my bu$T.
Keep backing a man that has never mentioned this,
does he care???Its up to you in November...
See who you care about.....As if we don't know...
Its a disgrace, and we know it. Stand up
for our troops America and vote for a man who
care for them and US.......His UNIONS are not
going to save anyone.....Listen and learn, and stop
ignoreing what is going on. Other countries hate
us, do we need OUR own doing the same to our troops
