Today the death toll is 2,000 dead in Afghanistan. But, what can we make of the leadership regarding this number. Is it just a number? In 14 years, 2,000 of our men and women, gone forever. In my service in the military, I never saw a more motivated group of self-thinkers, go-get-em types. Today, a large percentage of capable working people in our country does nothing, leaches off society, collects their Obama food stamps, picks up their Obama phones, sits in their basements, and thrives on Facebook. For Obama, the road goes on forever and the party never ends.
From iCasualties.org, we can find what has happened for these past 14 years. On their site is a graph showing US fatalities for each year into the Afghanistan region conflict.
2012 is not over yet. The total casualties for the region (includes casualties of soldiers wounded in the operation to subsequently die in Germany undergoing treatment) is 2,126. Notice, that during the years of the Obama regime, the total number of casualties is 1,496. Obama has not yet ruled for 4 years and over 70% of the casualties of the entire conflict were on his watch AND a direct result of his ill-advised actions.
How can this be? The apologizing Dhimi in chief spent 2009 apologizing to Muslims, bowing to Muslims, ass kissing Muslims. Well, liberals everywhere are sure to chime in that it was the build up that caused this to happen. A build up of about 30,000 troops. How soon they forget that Obama decided to ignore the advice of the generals in the field and commit his own dangerously low number. General McChrystal, after being advised of the political ramifications of giving a large troop surge number, delivered a request for 50,000. Then, the Obama administration brow beat the general continually to come down to 40,000 and McChrystal would not budge. Obama then made his proclamation that only 30,000 would be needed since his apologizing tour would save lives.
Again, the liberal media absolved Obama of a war that is now very much his. Obama made these decisions for one reason. Like all liberals, they kill US Soldiers to make their political points and the liberal media jumps right in to cover their asses. When suppressing an enemy, strength in numbers COUNTS! Obama took the low road to steal money from the Department of the Defense, sacrificing our young sons and daughters so more scum-sucking loafers could get their free phones, food stamps, and free medical care. These brave men and women who gave their lives due to the bad decisions of ungrateful tyrant may be the lucky ones. This country is poised to give that sack of Shiite Obama another four years. If so, our suffering is just beginning.
