    U.S. troops hope Afghanistan sacrifices not in vain

    U.S. troops hope Afghanistan sacrifices not in vain - Washington Times


    U.S. troops hope Afghanistan sacrifices not in vainRate this story


    KANDAHAR, Afghanistan | The sirens blared as a Taliban rocket attack rattled troops across Kandahar Air Field for the second time last week.

    Army Sgt. 1st Class Teresa R. Coble and other members of her unit at the base's media-support center hit the floor, lay flat on the dusty cement and protected their heads with their hands. Later, the unit moved to cement-reinforced bunkers until the all-clear sounded.

    While the Obama administration debates whether to send tens of thousands more U.S. troops to Afghanistan and Afghans prepare to vote for president for the second time in four months, some of those already braving rockets and bombs worry that their mission has lost the support of the U.S. public and that their sacrifices - and those of their fallen comrades - have been in vain.

    "What about the troops who died giving their lives for this mission?" Sgt. Coble asked as she waited for the rocket alert to finish.


    This story has some anecdotal stories here, but it follows the same thing I and many other veterans have been saying about Obama's fiddling while Afghanistan burns.... Troop moral is suffering, and I hate to read stories like this. Obama needs to make a decision now.

    why is it that Obama is getting all the flak over Bush's mess ups. Obama was supposed to get your troops out of Iraq. they are still there. that is enough for me to know that he is not going to keep his word. there is to much profit in having people die.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    Bush left office 9 months ago.

    Obama and his supporters need to ween themselves off the Bush as a Pacifier trick and start ya know.. doing something.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Because it's Barry's show, that's why. I was listening to Dennis Miller the other night and he said that PBO has a sign on his desk that says, "The Buck Starts here".

    I will hold him responsible as most reasonable people will when he takes the time weighs the facts and comes to his conclusion as to what our future in Afghanistan will be and those policies are implemented and the results good or bad become true...then and only then will I hold him responsible.

    Until then the situation was born and exits souly from PAST stonewalling standoff policies of the previous adminstration. That is why they are being judged on there amazing inaction.

    I do not think the President should not come to a public decision until the REAL legitimate votes are counted in their next revote of the last corrupt fraudulent elections. Fraud that was conducted by you know who's puppet government.
