    Those eight deaths were followed two days later by a 20-year old Marine from New Jersey. His girlfriend told the New York Daily News, "He was walking out of the base and he was immediately shot." The total number of US military deaths in Afghanistan is approaching 2000 which is about the average number of civilians killed there annually.

    Now a 17-year Army veteran with a pair of combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq documents how a "pattern of overt and substantive deception" by "many of America's most senior military leaders in Afghanistan" guarantees the loss of more young lives from Kapisa to North Arlington.

    For what, exactly?
    Other than war profits for the 1%.

    You are a real piece of work JStone toasting a U.S. Marine being killed in Afghanistan.

    And posting a video that adds applause sounds to news of his death. :evil:

    "These nine young, wasted lives will be the latest footnote in the longest war in United States history, a war that is being perpetuated, according to one brave, whistle-blowing U.S. Army officer, through a 'pattern of overt and substantive deception by 'many of America’s most senior military leaders in Afghanistan.'

    "Those are the words written by Lt. Col. Danny Davis in his 84-page report, 'Dereliction of Duty II: Senior Military Leaders’ Loss of Integrity Wounds Afghan War Effort.'

    "A draft of that report, dated Jan. 27, 2012, was obtained by Rolling Stone magazine. It has not been approved by the U.S. Army Public Affairs office for release, even though Davis writes that its contents are not classified.

    "He has submitted a classified version to members of Congress. Davis, a 17-year Army veteran with four combat tours behind him, spent a year in Afghanistan with the Army’s Rapid Equipping Force, traveling more than 9,000 miles to most operational sectors of the U.S. occupation and learning firsthand what the troops said they needed most"

    What the troops need most are politicians who don't serve those getting rich from war.

    Yes he is. In fact, he is lower than the sediment that gathers in the bottom of a cesspit. Be assured of one thing. The lowlife coward who calls himself JStone isn't fit to clean the shit off the soles of any combat vet, serving or otherwise. You can always tell his kind by the oversized gob, the stench of cowardice and an inbred desire to demonstrate their pig ignorance.

    "Defense Secretary Leon Panetta recently remarked, 'Hopefully by the mid- to latter part of 2013 we’ll be able to make a transition from a combat role to a training, advise and assist role.' Petraeus countered, saying the U.S. remains committed to ending the combat mission by the end of 2014.

    "Meanwhile, images surface of U.S. Marines urinating on Afghan corpses, or posing with a Nazi SS flag, and the drumbeat continues, death by death. Lt. Col Davis wrote, 'When having to decide whether to continue a war, alter its aims or to close off a campaign that cannot be won at an acceptable price, our senior leaders have an obligation to tell Congress and the American people the unvarnished truth.'”
