Satisfaction is being happy with yourself

The commander of the forces seem to indicate that this is a normal occurance. Believe me, if I were there from the news I heard of the prior shootings, I would be totally focused on being prepared to fire my weapon in an instance if I would recognize a potential threat. Friend or foe. Constant alertness is needed there in every location and situation

Ground troops are still instructed not to fire unless fired upon. However, they don't expect their (allies) to shoot hem. Remove the targets, let the Afghans kill each other.

Another reason we need to pull out of Afghan NOW.. Give all the Middle eastern countries Nukes to lob at each other. Lets not wait for Iran to develop nukes. Give them a few. Let Israel be the first to be hit.

Please, for your sake and the planets, get educated about nuclear weapons before you wish them loosed on our world. It is not clever idea, it is a horror.

I know just as much about the horror of nucliar war as anyone. The way the world is going,it might be a good idea. Destroy it, and start all over again. Who knows,it might be a better place. Its obvious that God, If there is a God, Did a shabby job of creating humans.

No they are not friends. If they were friends, we never would have bombed, invaded and occupied their country as we did and then continued night raids and drone attacks killing and injuring everyone we wanted to. Friends don't do that to friends. We have never seen them as our friends. Why should they see us as anything but the brutal occupiers that we are?

If any country did here what we are doing there, we would not sleep until every one of their troops was dead and burned to a crisp.

At least you don't have to read to grow a poppy plant. Going to this armpit of the world was the worst decision next to Iraq.

When will we finally learn that these sand fleas do not want our help, our freedoms, nor way of life? Let the civilized world abandon them and allow them to murder each other to their hearts' content.

Where are the apologies, where is the money being sent to the families? Isn't this what we did. Where is Obama apologizing to the American people for continuing to submit to the demands of the Taliban and Afghans. People worry that a cartoon might cause further damage to our troops, when in reality our own policy over there should be of the greatest concern.

We got them out from the control of a terrorist group called the Taliban. You know the group that would punish you for flying a kite! And if your that uninformed this is the group who would not think twice about stoning you for believing in anything other than Alla. This is also the organization who hid and helped UBL in his quest to terrorize people all around the world. Need I say more?

Let's see - "a rising number of attacks in which Afghan forces have turned their weapons on their FOREIGN PARTNERS." Foreign partners....I'm sure that's another way to say "allies"...Compensating occupying soldiers????? Excuse me, are you of the opinion our troops shouldn't be paid? ALL foreign troops SHOULD pull out IMMEDIATELY - and let Afghanistan's fate be solely in their own hands....oh my.....

There is going to be no peace in Afghanistan until ALL of Afghanistan wants peace, which isn't the case. Our only real option is to leave. Ideally, it would be wonderful to offer to take any women and children who want to permanently leave Afghanistan with us, to spare them from the predations of the men who have brutalized them for centuries. Let the men deal with the Taliban and the other Islamic extremists; see how they like it when they don't have women and children to rape and beat anymore.
