ANGRY AFGHANS IN OBAMA’S WAR – January 26, 2009
Obama’s war in Afghanistan killed 16 civilians and possibly 6 terrorists. Our new president is learning the responsiblities a leader carries on his shoulders. To get 6 terrorists, he killed 16 civilians. But he won’t have to worry about the press going after him and calling him a murderer like they did to Bush. He’s the golden boy and Bush was the nasty Republican.
Vice-President Joe “the Bumbling” Biden has predicted an increase in American deaths as Obama sends more troops into Afghanistan and I predict more American deaths in Iraq as Obama pulls soldiers out of Iraq too soon, leaving a vacuum for terrorists to fill and U.S. troops insufficiently covered.
Every mistake Pres. Obama makes in Iraq and Afghanistan will be blamed on Pres. Bush for the next four years. But the strange thing is that the liberals never blame the wars and the killing on the terrorists that attack all over the world.
The Los Angeles Times, January 25, 2009
“KABUL, Afghanistan – A fierce new dispute erupted yesterday over civilian deaths in Afghanistan, with village elders asserting that as many as 22 noncombatants were killed in an American-led raid and U.S. military officials insisting all 15 dead, including a woman, were Taliban fighters.”
Now Afghan President Karzai and the Afghans are upset with the U.S. Obama has tarred our popularity with his war, air-raiding innocents in the middle of the night. WHERE ARE THESE HEADLINES IN THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA?
More from the Los Angeles Times:
“Village elders provided a much different account to provincial officials, saying there were no Taliban in the area, which they described as a hamlet populated mainly by shepherds. Women and children were among the 22 civilian dead, they said, according to Hamididan Abdul Rahmzai, the head of the provincial council.
Two other officials, including a spokesman for the Laghman governor, later said 11 of the dead had been identified positively as civilians.”
Sound familiar? Obama is doing the same thing Bush was tarred and feathered for. Our new President is finding out what is necessary and how the terrorists will portray the actions of the U.S.
Here is what our military is saying about the raid, and I believe them.
“A statement by the U.S. military said the strike targeted a Taliban commander “known to traffic foreign fighters and weapons into the region.” As coalition troops approached his compound, the statement said, they came under fire from “multiple directions” by militants armed with AK-47 assault rifles and rocket-propelled grenades.
“They were running around with weapons, firing at our people,” said Army Col. Greg Julian, a spokesman for U.S. forces.
The U.S. military statement said searches of village compounds in the firefight’s aftermath uncovered weapons caches that included automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, a hand grenade and ammunition. Many rural Afghans keep guns and ammunition in their homes, but Julian said that “RPGs would not be considered a family weapon.”
The woman who was killed was advancing on troops with a rocket-propelled grenade, the American military said.
The conflicting accounts of the raid were reminiscent of an August strike in the village of Azizabad in the western province of Herat, which caused an international outcry.”
This is what they do, no matter what. They blame the U.S. for some dastardly deed. They want us to lay down our arms, our defenses and take whatever they dish out, quietly.
If we ever do, that’s it for U.S. Terrorists will hit us from all sides with no fear.
Mr Obama should publically apologize to Mr. George W. Bush for his criticism and acknowledge that Mr. Bush was unfairly pilloried. And the news media should apologize on the front pages in bold large type for their shameful treatment of Pres. Bush and giving Pres. Obama a pass for the same thing.
And let’s not forget Israel, who is blamed for killing civilians in this same way.
DON’T BE DUPED, SCAMMED OR FLEECED, because this adminstration and it’s back-pocket news media are going to try.
