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 foolish retarded american
. I do not think you get it. The people you refer would be our enemies regardless. We have women's rights, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech. These things threaten their existence. They brought the attack to American shores on 9/11.

Obama probably has a policy with the military that we must not ever out number the enemy as it would give us an unfair advantage. Either that or else the troops must announce to the locals their troop strength and locations so they can run and tell the enemy. Oh, that's right, there is no enemy. This is all about man caused disasters and isolated incidents.

And if a soldier is to fire his weapon he must first fill out forms in triplicate as to why he fired, what his mindset was, whether he really really had to fire or just felt like it at the time, whether he gave the enemy a fair chance to run away, and whether he cheated on the enemy to obtain an unfair advantage prior to firing. In the last page of the form is a disclosure that ideally he must get the enemy to sign prior to firing his weapon. If he can't obtain their signature, he must first at least yell olley olley oxen free, I'm about to fire at you. If there is no reply he must then wait to be sure he was heard and then yell it again until he obtains verbal confirmation.

Obamas fair and balanced war strategy,

For every Afgany killed we have to let one of our on be killed.

I say, start sending Obama supporters over there to help out the enemy. But don't let them have weapons. That would be unfair to the enemy. In no time we would have our country back.
