    Yeah, let's toast the troops.

    Yeah, The Messiah keeps his promises. The Messiah closed Gitmo in less than a year and ended the wars and repatriated all the troops.

    Just name a promise he made and you can be assured he has fulfilled it.

    And, there isn't an American presence in the Tallie strongholds. So, I say bomb the crap out of them.

    Wanna see a quick end to the war? Then fight it and stop pussy-footin' around.
    Well it's kinda of hard to fight an enemy that appears and then disappears into a crowd of civilians and as well as uses IEDs and asymmetric warfare to combat the West's conventional military might

    Yes, it is hard. Therefore, it's going to take more time to defeat that enemy. Duh!!!!

    Unless, we have the guts to bombs those civilains, along with the bad guys. But, I know that ain't gonna happen.

    One would think that the civilians would stop allowing themselves to used as human shields.

    The guts to bomb those civilians?

    I think you meant to say "the reprehensible lack of regard for morality, humanity and international law" to bomb those civilians.
