U.S. Marines will march out of Afghanistan by the thousands next year, winding down combat in the Taliban heartland and testing the U.S. view that Afghan forces are capable of leading the fight against a battered but not yet beaten insurgency in the country's southwestern reaches, senior U.S. military officers say.

Obama got Osama!

President Obama’s foreign policy strategies has brilliantly won the war in Iraq, won the war in Afghanistan, found and killed Osama bin Laden, brought Muammar Qaddafi’s dictatorship to a brutal end, killed thousands of terrorists all while preventing a 9-11 type of an attack on the homeland… like the one that happened on George W. Bush watch.

Most of my fellow Marines appreciate the leadership that our Commander-in-Chief has lead them with bringing them so many victories on the battlefield…

God bless President Obama and the United States Marine Corps!

IT IS OBVIOUS MARINE CORP IS A GOVERNMENT SHILL. EVIL IS ALL AROUND. NO ONE IS NEAR 100% ON ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER UNLESS THEY ARE INSANE. MARINE CORP IS GETTING PAID AS A PLANT AND LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK, SETTING A BAR THAT IS NOT THE NORM. THEN OUR OPINIONS ARE GRADED AS HATE FROM THAT VALUE. VOTING FOR THE SAME STYLE REPUB IN 2012 WILL GIVE US A CRUMB BACK COMPARED TO WHAT IS PRESIDENT NOW. BUT WE WILL NOT BE HEADING BACK TO FREEDOM. IT IS TRAGIC PEOPLE REPEAT THE SAME MONTSToROUS DECISIONS TIME AFTER TIME.

I give up...what kind of DRUGS are you on?

We have won ZERO....except trillions in new debt, dead american servicemen, dead Afghans and DISHONOR to our nation.

The Marines are not winding down anything....they are LOSING and going home as the LOSERS that they are.

The USA is a sick violent nation caught it its own UGLY revenege and now chooses to slither home and claim they accomplished something.

Troops are being brought out of Iraq where peace reigns to lose our efforts there only to be sent back out to Afganistan where combat casualties are much higher and the war effort there useless.

When in 2012, end of 2012?

In AFganistan, the combat troops die in unneccessary suicide missions and Obama hinders their efforts by withholding their power to shoot. WHAT KIND OF IDIOT COMMANDER IN CHIEF IS HE? He is enemy of the U.S. He wants more of our young able bodied men to die so that the country cannot protect itself at home. Not enough troups were dying in Iraq for him. He is also using the military and christianity to get vote. No Christmas tree at the WH for 3 years, suddenly this year we hear Michelle is decorating one. LIES and ELECTIONEERING. Danger in Term 2.

BUZZ THIS AROUND TO ALL

from Afghanistan then on to Yemen, Syria, Libya, Egypt, Somolia, Uganda, soon to be Congo.

The USA is tethered to the Middle East, all because of Israel. Who gets aid from the USA and Britian. Israel can't exist without these two countries.

America and Britian,like much of the world,have been victim to attacks by Muslim factions.
It's Muslims that insist on these aggresions.

not that it means anythign but I am against it now because Given that the Department of Homeland Security has characterized behavior such as buying gold, owning guns, using a watch or binoculars, donating to charity, using the telephone or email to find information, using cash, and all manner of mundane behaviors as potential indicators of domestic terrorism, such a provision would be wide open to abuse.

]Keep the marines in afghanistan. we don't want them here anymore.
