    During the last two weeks, the Taliban beheaded a 20-year-old woman for refusing to become a prostitute and shot a 14-year-old girl in Pakistan for attending school and encouraging other females to do the same.

    Welcome to the Obama Doctrine.

    Four people were involved in the killing of 20-year-old Mah Gul, a young woman who refused to become a prostitute even at the urging of close family members. The 14-year-old "infidel" was shot as she walked home from school because she dared speak out for girls denied education under the Taliban.

    These are the kinds of things we will see more and more of as Al Qaeda re-emerges and as the Taliban realizes it need not conceal itself as much it did when the U.S. maintained a strong, deliberate presence in Afghanistan. From President Obama they don't hear "we're coming after you." Rather, they hear speeches of how U.S. troops are going to pack up their tents and come home in 2014 whether the job is finished or not.

    In short, Obama's new and improved Afghanistan looks a lot like the old and unimproved version.

    To be fair how was Obama supposed to stop this? this is how the Afghans are and they will be this way once we leave, theres not really much Obama can do to change the Afghans culturally.

    Obama IS the Commander-in-Chief and, as such, it is his job to know exactly what is going on in those areas where American military personnel are stationed. Our military is there, not only to try to help the Afghans from struggling out of their 8th century society but to ensure common citizens receive humane treatment.

    If he ignore the atrocities of the Taliban against Afghans and others, it is his JOB to at least raise the issue with Afghan and Pakistani authorities.

    But, as he has done from day one, he finds it more important to attend fund raisers, play golf, or take lavish vacations. :mad:

    Again, how was Obama supposed to stop this? we don't have enough US Troops to secure the whole country, we never have. Are you under the impression we have a platoon of US Army Soldiers on every street corner in Afghanistan? this kind of shit will STILL happen even if Romney is President.

    The middle east is disintegrating into what it was before the British. It's the way the people want it.

    you don't really think he believes what he's saying... look at how the loons responded to bush making a mess of things.

    romney goes on his embarrassment tour and that's ok.

    it's a disease with the right. it doesn't matter what barack obama does or doesn't do.

    i figured that out when the loved the heritage foundation's healthcare plan when it came out...well, until obama signed it.

    People just don't understand, they act like Obama controls everything that happens on the ground in Afghanistan, when the truth is he controls very little, and thats the same for anyone else that would be President, Romney, Bush, McCain, whoever, this still would have happened because this is what the Afghans are , they are not interested in learning English and adopting an American life style.

    Obama did not start this war in Afghanistan that tried to change the religions and politics. BUSH DID.
    The job is finished. Way past time to pack up and leave. The cost has been way to high a price to ask our young men and women to pay for what? Leave these people in the cesspool that they will return to whenever we leave.
