    Re: US Deaths Double In Afghanistan As Troops Pour In

    I wonder if there's anything about this topic that warrants discussion besides the OP's unconscionable bad taste in laughing at the dead troops, or who's more patriotic: democrats or republicans.

    Anything...?

    What? how is that a typical right winger?



    This right winger thinks the prof laughing about troop deaths to score political points is abhorrent, and my view is typical of "right wingers" on this thread....



    On another note. I remember back in 2004+ many on the left including some here who are now decrying it, spent years with fake body counts gloating over dead troops and what not..... it was far more "typical" of certain left wingers to engage in this abhorrent behavior......

    Troop numbers increase, action taken increases, sadly troop deaths increase.

    The pathetic use of this to score political points now is no better than what many liberals have been doing for the past 7 years. Its disgusting and its a disservice to the troops. The ONLY thing I find interesting about the story is the fact that it's getting a hell of a lot less play than it would under George Bush. And you know something? I'm fine with that. Not because of the blatant hypocrisy and left wing slant of the majority of the media, but because it should've never been a large part of a non-stop news cycle in the first place during a time of war. I have zero doubts that its not getting as much play because it isn't as politically advantageous for many in teh media to push it anymore, but to me in this case the ends matter more than the means.

    War is war and unfortunantly troops lose their lives, especially as operations are ramped up. We do not need a running tally or constant reminder of this in negative ways back home if there's any hope to kep up citizen resolve to finish the job.

    LOL!

    the subject:

    1. it is a president's solemn and grave responsibility to ensure that america's heroes and their families are never asked to make this ultimate sacrifice except in the service of america's imminent security interests

    2. because this is OBAMA'S WAR, he's president and he ESCALATED

    3. every casualty which occurs over there is on his watch

    4. unfortunately, our best and bravest are being exposed to foolish and unnecessarily heightened risks due to their operating under ROE's ridiculously unreal

    5. tragically, our first and finest are fighting in a battleground from which the enemy we seek who are responsible for 9-11 have already largely relocated

    6. desperately, the success of our mission, therefore, is entirely dependent on the efforts of corrupt and incompetent zardari in pakistan

    7. dangerously, the president has consequently initiated what the london times calls obama's "secret war in pakistan"

    8. ominously, the measure of american martyrdom has increased four fold since afghanistan became OBAMA'S WAR

    now, what was the subject you wished to discuss, again?

    oh, yeah: ME!

    LOL!

    The point is, Obama's rules of engagement are incredibly unpopular among the troops, and it's getting soldiers needlessly killed.

    If that's all they're able to do, I don't have a problem with it.

    Personally, I served for 11 years.

    Any other smartass comments?

    And of course now that Republicans are claiming people are "needlessly getting cared" (a statement that illicited calls of "Using the troops for political gain" and "You don't support then" in the past) its obviously true and therefore completely acceptable, but when the Dem's did it then they hated the troops, american, and apple pie.
