Remember all those grim milestone updates from the left during the war in Iraq? Well here is one from Afghanistan. Meanwhile, it is three months since the military command in Afghanistan asked the president for reinforcements. So far, not response. Nero fiddles while Rome burns.
Roadside bombs — the biggest killer of U.S. soldiers — claimed eight more American lives Tuesday, driving the U.S. death toll to a record level for the third time in four months as President Barack Obama nears a decision on a new strategy for the troubled war.
The homemade bombs, also called improvised explosive devices or IEDs, are responsible for between 70 percent and 80 percent of the casualties among U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan and have become a weapon of “strategic influence,” said Lt. Gen. Thomas Metz in Washington.
The attacks Tuesday followed one of the deadliest days for the U.S. military operation in Afghanistan — grim milestones likely to fuel the debate in the United States over whether the conflict is worth the sacrifice.
The number two and three deadliest months were also during the Obama presidency.
Obama claims he needs more time. You know, in addition to the time he spends jetting around the country for date nights with Michelle, a vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, trips to Europe to lobby for sports events for his home town and more rounds of golf than the last president played in three years. Should we even talk about the parties at the White House?
Still, men die while he takes his sweet time to “decide” if the military should get the reinforcements they desperately need.
Here, watch this video if you can stand to watch the punk ass hypocrite talk shit.
