The Mozlem Brother obsessed Obama who rushed to apologize for any Afghan Mozlem Brother death will not demand the apology of the Jihadist regime of Karzai who treats the "insider killers" of our US troops as heroes. The continuous Jihadist Moslem Brother attacks by the Afghan troops and the Taliban terrorists that became integral part of the Afghan military prove that US mission in Afghanistan is over long time ago. Moreover, more sacrifice of our US troops only to make the Mozlem Brother thugs heroes of Afghanistan and their president Karzai is a crime against the American people. It is time to stop making our brave US troops hostages of the Afghan people and the Taliban terrorists of Pakistan that kill scores of them every day while the killing now is justified as “insiders”. The truth must be told to the American people that Afghanistan was always enemy of American people before 9/11 2001 attack and it remain enemy of America after our US troops will cut and run defeated within the next year or two. The stupid “Training of the Taliban terrorists disguised as Afghan Jihadist troops” by our US troops is making no sense whatsoever and must be stopped now. Like the betrayal of Iraq of the American people as Iraq became partner in the anti-American axis of evil led by Iranian regime, Afghanistan will continue to be enemy of America as it will join Pakistan as it will be ruled by the Taliban terrorists of Pakistan regardless of the lies of Obama and Hillary that call Afghanistan ally of America replacing Israel.

BO is deeply concerned about Moo eating way to much lobster as she is putting the men of deadly catch in a very bad position because she snorts down 2 boatloads of lobster a day. He is also deeply concerned about his next golf game as he knows nothing else.

There's no way Obama brings the Troops home on his own accord, It took Bush's SOFA Agreement to get them the Hell out of Iraq! Obama tried to Extend their Stay!

Obama's loves killing people now and he's not bashful about losing a "few good US men and women" to satisfy his blood lust.

A lot of people would disagree with me to say when they hear these I believe Marxist sound bites coming from our own president,” O’Donnell says.“I would say they’re Marxist because of the things that you hear coming from him about share the wealth, economic equality – and these sound bites might sound good and noble on the surface, but the problem is there’s quantifiable data that prove that they simply don’t work and we’re a free market economy that’s supposed to empower the individual, let each person use their gifts, use the rewards to create a better life for themselves instead of what Barack Obama is posing, a tax code that punishes hard work, a tax code that reduces everybody to exactly the same.”

Candidate Obama promised to refocus America's resources on Afghanistan. But by the time President Obama sent 33,000 more troops to Afghanistan in December 2009, years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan had drained Western resources and sapped resolve to build a viable Afghan state.

And over time, his administration has grown weary of trying to tackle Afghanistan's seemingly intractable problems of poverty and corruption. The American people have grown weary too.

??????????

However, Obama touted ABOUT BIN LADEN by not mentioning Afghanistan, where he thought he was BRAVE and not afraid of many civilians there BY ADDING MORE TROOPS,but , Muslims and Al Qaeda relating to bin Laden --then just how would he target against terror?

YET, while talking AS IF he was merely afraid of bin Laden and not afraid of Afghans to extend troops, Obama came up talking with bravery ABOUT BIN LADEN FACING, supported by others' say as well-- including Hillary Clinton, to get JUST ONE UNARMED-MAN BIN LADEN WHO WAS TOLD THAT HE ALREADY RETIRED DURING THOSE DAYS.

OBAMA SAYS THERE SHOWS NO PICTURES of ghosts he was so brave to bust them and people will have to believe what he says--just like the way he got bin Laden.

-----?????

Americans show more interest in the economy and taxes than the latest suicide bombings in a different, distant land. They're more tuned in to the political ad war playing out on television than the deadly fight still raging against the Taliban. Earlier this month, protesters at the Iowa State Fair chanted "Stop the war!" They were referring to one purportedly being waged against the middle class.

By the time voters go to the polls Nov. 6 to choose between Obama and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, the war will be in its 12th year. For most Americans, that's long enough.

Public opinion remains largely negative toward the war, with 66 percent opposed to it and just 27 percent in favor in a May AP-GfK poll. More recently, a Quinnipiac University poll found that 60 percent of registered voters felt the U.S. should no longer be involved in Afghanistan. Just 31 percent said the U.S. is doing the right thing by fighting there now.
