    It's become obvious that Muslims simply can't be trusted as partners. It's time to get out of Afghanistan and let these stoneaged savages go back to playing ball with their goat heads. We should never have tried to help build any kind of civilization there. We should have bombed the shit out of the place and let them know if there was another attack on the U.S. launched from there, that we'd be back. There is no way we should continue to ask our soldiers to work side by side with Muslims that they can't turn their backs on. If your religion condones lying when it suits your needs, then you just can't be trusted period.

    Afghanistan’s Soldiers Step Up Killings of Allied Forces

    KABUL, Afghanistan — American and other coalition forces here are being killed in increasing numbers by the very Afghan soldiers they fight alongside and train, in attacks motivated by deep-seated animosity between the supposedly allied forces, according to American and Afghan officers and a classified coalition report.

    “Lethal altercations are clearly not rare or isolated; they reflect a rapidly growing systemic homicide threat (a magnitude of which may be unprecedented between ‘allies’ in modern military history),” it said. Official NATO pronouncements to the contrary “seem disingenuous, if not profoundly intellectually dishonest,” said the report, and it played down the role of Taliban infiltrators in the killings.

    The coalition refused to comment on the classified report. But “incidents in the recent past where Afghan soldiers have wounded or killed I.S.A.F. members are isolated cases and are not occurring on a routine basis,” said Lt. Col. Jimmie E. Cummings Jr. of the Army, a spokesman for the American-led International Security Assistance Force. “We train and are partnered with Afghan personnel every day and we are not seeing any issues or concerns with our relationships.”

    The numbers appear to tell a different story. Although NATO does not release a complete tally of its forces’ deaths at the hands of Afghan soldiers and the police, the classified report and coalition news releases indicate that Afghan forces have attacked American and allied service members nearly three dozen times since 2007.

    ITA... get our troops the hell otta the middle east... ALL of them... NOW... not later, NOW!

    That's the ONE THING that I was hoping the kenyan would do, and he FAILED to do that. His failure as a president is complete.

    I agree.

    Let the Afghans live in the Stone Age.

    Let the Taliban have that pile of rocks back.

    We've spent enough blood and treasure in that shithole.

    If your officer's dead and the sergeants look white,
    Remember it's ruin to run from a fight:
    So take open order, lie down, and sit tight,
    And wait for supports like a soldier.
    Wait, wait, wait like a soldier . . .

    When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
    Go, go, go like a soldier,
    Go, go, go like a soldier,
    Go, go, go like a soldier,
    So-oldier ~of~ the Queen!

    Yes, 'The Longest War' should be ended immediately. Nothing more to be gained over there. And our own President and the Afghan Government are close to a deal which will hand half the Nation over to the Taliban anyway. The big sell-out is well underway. So there is absolutely no need for even one more Soldier to die in that Hell-Hole. Those poor kids who were just murdered over there, died for nothing. Lets bring em all home now.

    Well, the one piece of "advice" from the previous Administration to fight them on their own soil is worthy of consideration and a plus for Obama to not just abandon a country (Afghanistan) in serious need of help.

    - as in their citizens being gunned down for just listening to music, and the assholes that supported OBL.

    The people who are gunning down their citizens for listening to music are the Taliban that Obama has just decided we should become partners with. You know..the same assholes that supported OBL. This is a trainwreck and not another U.S. soldier should die to try to build any type of nation that includes the Taliban as part of the government. And not another soldier should die because the Muslims can't be trusted not to kill those whose try to help them.

    Well said. We will come to deeply regret turning half of Afghanistan over to the Taliban. Blow Back will being blowing back our way at some point on that. It's a real mess. Time to bring em home.
