Taliban mock US as Afghan war enters 12th year

Posted Image
A US soldier patrols in the area of Ahmadzi village in Muhammad Agah, Logar Province, Afghanistan on October 6. America's longest war entered its 12th year Sunday, with the anniversary marked by a Taliban statement claiming that NATO forces are "fleeing Afghanistan" in "humiliation and disgrace".
AFP - America's longest war entered its 12th year Sunday, with the anniversary marked by a Taliban statement claiming that NATO forces are "fleeing Afghanistan" in "humiliation and disgrace".
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A total of 3,199 NATO soldiers have been killed in the war, more than 2,000 of them Americans. Most deaths occurred in the past five years as Taliban attacks escalated, according to icasualties.com [joc edit: this is suppose to be icaualties.org].
This year, official statistics showed that deaths in the Afghan security forces are running five times higher than those for NATO, as the Afghans take on increasing responsibilities before the Western withdrawal.
The US and NATO say Afghan forces will be capable of taking over the fight against the Taliban after 2014, but many analysts predict a bloody new multi-factional civil war.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My calculator says that during the Bush Administrations 8 years, there was a total of 1,049 coalition deaths in Afghanistan.  Compare that to 2,150 coalition deaths during Obama's 4 years.

I hope we are out very soon.  In future if we move into an Islamic country we should follow the rule of the 3 D's :  DEPLOY, DESTROY, DEPART.....
There is no reasoning with these people.  Action should only be taken in self defense or to harry them so they cannot attack.  But when action is taken it should be fast and very painful for them.  They seem not to respect anything that does not kill massive numbers of them.

Never once, actually.  What an odd remark.  With the condescending attitudes you display on nearly every subject, I'd take you for an intellectual snob.  But I'm probably wrong also.

genocide is not a moral position. I thought you learned something from the bible and your Zionist friends.

Hush, you old codger.  Stop being a provocateur when you know I said nothing about anything so evil as genocide.  You're being ridiculous.

Kill thy enemy
Kill them dead
Kill them so their blood flows red
Kill them hard and kill them fast
Kill them till the the very last
When your enemies are dead
Then you have nothing to dread
(sorry, couldn't resist :) )

Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their women.

My thoughts are:  If we are not going to kick ass, kill the enemy and win the freaking war...then bring our troops home.  And the other thought is:  It's late in the fourth quarter and the quatrer back has no plan, no will, no ideas....so....let's either get a new quarter back and kick some frickin' azz or get the hell out.
