    Then you must be surprised that the guy we plan to turn over security there to thinks it is an atrocity. I'm guessing what he and the other Afghans think about it is a hell of lot more significant than what you think about it.

    Not really.

    Oh, come now. This is one of the most blatant forms of ad hominem.

    Waning Afghan support for our military presence there due to US atrocities is hardly an ad hominem.

    Neither. Hopefully they can resist the Taliban taking over again. But if not, don't come cryin' to us.

    Can't decide if its a good thing or a bad thing eh?

    No, they are speaking for themselves as I referenced in post #666.

    I guess you could say that. I'd like nothing more than to say to Kharzi and his corrupt little game playing cohorts, that he is on his own, and just roll out. On the other hand, I realize the reality of what goes on in that region, and the danger it poses to us.

    No, they are speaking for themselves as I referenced in post #666.
    Well, you certainly phrased it like you were speaking for them, even though most of us know that it was the usual snarky small attempt to stifle an opposing viewpoint.

    Look if the Afghani's really want us out of there then explain this one from your hero Obama.....

    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Washington has pledged in a newly agreed strategic pact to help defend Afghanistan militarily for at least a decade after the country formally takes control of its own security, an Afghan official said Monday.

    Obama is Kharzi's bitch, and he knows it.

    I wouldn't care if it was on purpose, This is not an atrocity.



    The massacre of 16 Afghan children, women and men by an American soldier “was not the first incident, indeed it was the 100th, the 200th and 500th incident.”

    by one man, and you want to claim all of the military are war criminals?



    Such harsh talk may sound as if it comes from the Taliban, but those are all remarks either made personally by the United States’ increasingly hostile ally here, President Hamid Karzai, or issued by his office in recent days and weeks.
    so the **** what? he has to suck the talibans dick if he wants to stay in power. It's sorta like watching you say nasty things about all of the US military, based on isolated incidents that were dealt with by those in charge.


    The strongest such outburst came Friday. “Let’s pray for God to rescue us from these two demons,” Mr. Karzai said, apparently holding back tears at a meeting with relatives of the massacre victims, and clearly referring to the United States and the Taliban in the same breath. “There are two demons in our country now.”

    Good, let's get out, and tell them next bomb we track back to your country, we will plow it into a parking lot. What will you say then?

    An atrocity is if you take a woman, rape her, and then shoot her in front of her husband, an atrocity is cutting off the heads of your enemy, an attrocity is wonton killing of civillians...

    Burning a book, or posing with the remains of a dead terrorist who spent his life trying to kill you, is NOT an atrocity. /facepalm

    It isn't the Afghans that are trying to kill American soldiers it is the Taliban, Al Quada and other Terrorists that are. At least be honest. And last time I checked it was a foreign group that attacked the USA first... I am not sure how old you are but that is simply a fact.

    If our nation deems that sending soldiers to a war is needed then a war is what happens and people should understand that war is not pretty and we can never make it so. The war in Afghanistan is just... the war in Iraq is stupid. Learn to differentiate and when you think that you can present a more worth while debate then let me know.

    oh wow I'm sorry, I didn't realize I was dealing with someone who knew what the afghans are thinking! Your ability to psychoanalyze an entire country of people is amazing, I'm recomending you for a nobel prize. You deserve it.
    Great retort...
