Sorry to hear about the loss of life. It does show a certain amount of desperation on the part of the Taliban. Let's hope the Afghan government gets a handle on this sooner rather than later.
Sad to hear....
Just shows that Afghanistan is far from risk free duty. Makes you appreciate all of our soldiers over there
You were under the impression, somehow, that it is 'risk free'? How odd.
My prayers are with them and their families.
It must be since Obama indorses it and he was against all war before he was President.
Could we not make this into a partisan bitchfest. Our war dead should be sacred... not used for partisan political point scoring.
Do you think we should just bail on Afghanistan? I don't. I'd hate for us to have to go back there in 10 years because we didn't finish the job the first time.
We had cause to invade Afghanistan. Bush knew his history and kept our presence small to avoid open conflict with most of the people of that backwards ignorant Country.
Obama escalated a war he claimed he was against and then tied the military's hands behind their back. Further he STATED he does not WANT to win.
So please explain to me why we are in a war we do not intend to win using tactics that do not work while preventing the military from doing their job?
Your partisan politics aside, I do not see the war as being escalated as much as reinserting the troops previously removed in 2003 to start the war in Iraq. As for the tactics, they come from the Pentagon and I think COIN is an effective strategy. Unfortunately, as we've seen today, our troops are still in harm's way anytime we are actively engaged in a struggle such as this.
My condolences to the families of the fallen.
can you link to your statement that obama said'' he does not want to win'' ????
