    I.....smell BS, and the reason why. Is the Pakistani launched a pretty good size Assault on the Afghanistan's Southern Border taking out 9 Pakistani Taliban hideouts.
    Not sure why you think the Paki raids has much to do with this, love to hear why you think that.

    As far as the who makes mistakes, my mom once said if you have a belly button you can make a mistake.

    IIRC the Spec boys did this exact same thing going into Afghanistan in 2001. SF on the ground called in a guided munition but gave the Observer coordinate as the Target one.

    Problem with BO and his teams thinking is and has always been. Do whatever to get out of the War. Not looking at the fact.....the War isn't over.
    'splain that mission again. And how are 10,000 going to keep the peace for how many more years?

    Well if you go and check out Stratfor.....You will see they seem to think its a Joint Venture with these Attacks. That All was coordinated. At the same time with both Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    I guess thats SOP for those who have Aircraft in the Sky. Course most in the military already know the basics. Just sayin.

    I thought BO said half of the 9800 will be to train the Afghans.....and the Other half will be for Ops against AQ and Insurgents and that we will be there for another decade.

    Exactly. Where was the media the last 5 years when soldiers have continued to fight and die while the govt talks about wages for burger flippers and gay marriage? Theyll forget about them again soon. Its election time after all. Time to focus on polls and sex lives of politicians and which aristocrats will get to keep their cushy jobs.

    Pero, I will never understand the thinking of civilians who put their lives in danger by tromping around in places like the ME. The couple with the child who have requested BHO's help in freeing them from the Taliban is the latest example. It's dangerous for our military over there - let alone ordinary people! Since the Taliban has refused to negotiate with us at all, why push the envelope by testing them?

    Greetings, Pero.

    Well, now with all the Attacks by terrorisst jumping off. I think the Media is finally getting it. AQ in Iraq just took over Iraq's 2nd largest City and Northern Capitol. They have control of all government sources and facilities. Washington Post with the reporting. Again they use the term Insurgents.

    Oh and now all the Prisons......I have it up In on the War on Terror in Military.
