THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE WHEN WE CALLED ON THEM...NOW WE MUST BE THERE FOR THEM!
PUT YOUR ACTIONS WHERE YOUR MOUTHS ARE!
SUPPORT OUR TROOPS AND BRING THEM HOME ALIVE!!!
LIKE ANCIENT ROME, AMERICA IS AFRAID TO BRING HER ARMY HOME.AMERICA'S "LEADERS" HAVE JUST DECIDED TO ABANDON THEM TO THEIR FATE IN AFGHANISTAN FOR 11 MORE LONG, GRUELING YEARS!
THEY GET TO LIVE IN A TYPE OF HELL WE HERE WILL NEVER KNOW, WHILE WE PRETEND WE DON'T SEE THE SELL-OUT JOHN KERRY JUST PULLED OFF FOR THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. .
JOHN KERRY APPEARS TO HAVE PERSUADED AMERICA'S SOMETIMES-PUPPET KARZAI TO ACCEPT ANOTHER 11 YEARS OF AMERICAN TROOP PRESENCE IN THE NATION THE U.S. GROOMED HIM TO RUN.
KARZAI HAS OFTEN BALKED SINCE AMERICA INSTALLED HIM AS "PRESIDENT" IN AFGHANISTAN, HAS FLIRTED WITH IRAN AND ACCEPTED MONEY FROM IRAN IN FREQUENT INSTALLMENTS OF AT LEAST MILLIONS OF DOLLARS SINCE TAKING "OFFICE", HAS PLAYED BOTH ENDS AGAINST THE MIDDLE, AND EVEN RECENTLY DEMANDED AN APOLOGY FROM THE U.S. FOR WAR 'MISTAKES' AND WAR CRIMES, FOR THE KILLING OF AFGHAN PEOPLE, AND FOR COLLUSION WITH THE TALIBAN.
IT SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN THE CASE OF ONE WHORE PAYING ANOTHER AND WE MAY NEVER KNOW WHICH ONE, KERRY OR KARZAI, WAS THE HIGHER-PAID OF THE TWO.
I AM SICK OF THE BLATANT WHOREDOM OF OUR POLITICIANS, ALL OF THEM!
LOOKS LIKE THE MONEY CARROT THAT KERRY DANGLED BEFORE KARZAI WORKED AND MADE KARZAI "FORGET" ALL THAT...HE'S BEEN PROMISED TO BE WELL PAID WITH ANOTHER 11 YEARS OF AMERICAN "FINANCIAL AID" TO 'ALLOW' OUR WEARY TROOPS ANOTHER 11 YEARS THERE TO BE SHOT AT, SPIT ON, AND ATTACKED INCESSANTLY WHILE THEY ARE ALSO UNDER-SUPPLIED AND DON'T EVEN HAVE ADEQUATE WATER SUPPLIES.
[DON'T THINK SO? SEE THIS: "'It's got a lot of turbidity in it -- particles and silt. It's not real dark or anything, but it's not drinkable or fit for human consumption right out of the ground," he said.
"Nobody has deemed it potable water able to drink, but we're working on that. There's really nothing wrong with it," he said. Currently, the base water comes from commercial sources, requiring a fleet of water tanker trucks. '"
AND THIS...AND THIS...(NO MORE HOT BREAKFASTS FOR THEM EITHER!) AND GO READ THIS...HALLIBURTON KNOWINGLY GAVE THEM CONTAMINATED WATER!]
I AM SICK OF READING THE NAMES OF OUR DEAD TROOPS!
WE SHOULD HAVE LET THOSE NATIONS KILL EACH OTHER UNTIL THEY GOT TIRED OF KILLING!
WE NEED OUR TROOPS IN THIS NATION, NOT IN SOME DESERT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD!
SOME OF THE BEST-KNOWN AND HIGHEST-RANKED MILITARY AMERICA HAS SENT TO THE MIDDLE EAST HAVE LONG ARGUED THAT OUR PRESENCE THERE IS FUTILE, IS UNNECESSARY, THAT THE "WAR ON TERROR" AND THE TALIBAN IS UNWINNABLE, AND IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT CONTINUOUSLY FUELS THE INSANITY AND HOSTILITIES ALL OVER THE "BIG SAND LOT".
THAT HAS FALLEN ON DEAF EARS FOR AT LEAST 5 ADMINISTRATIONS.
THERE IS NOT ONE NATION THERE THAT HAS EVER TRULY WELCOMED AMERICAN TROOPS, AND NO NATION HAS EXPRESSED A DESIRE TO KEEP AN AMERICAN MILITARY PRESENCE INSIDE THEIR BORDERS.
OUR TROOPS ARE DESPISED AND ATTACKED 24 HOURS A DAY, EVERY DAY, BY THE YOUNGEST AND THE OLDEST IN THOSE MUSLIM NATIONS.
America is called the Great Satan.
IT IS A RELIGIOUS FERVOR THAT DRIVES THE ATTACKS AGAINST THE "DEMON, AMERICA". IT IS A RELIGIOUS DUTY TO CONVERT OR TO DESTROY ALL WHO STAND AGAINST ISLAM.
WE CANNOT DENY ANYONE'S RIGHT TO RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, SO WE MUST NOT BE SURPRISED THAT ANOTHER RELIGION SEES AMERICANS AS DEVILS, AS BEASTS, AS SOULLESS CREATURES THAT MUST SUBMIT TO ISLAM, ACCEPT THE "RIGHT" RELIGION OR BE ELIMINATED.
JIHAD IS AS ACCEPTABLE TO THEM AS EASTER IS TO AMERICANS.
NO MUSLIM NATION WANTS INFIDELS AMONGST THEM, OR CONTAMINATION OF THEIR FAITH BY THE UNFAITHFUL, YOU SEE, AND ALL MUSLIM NATIONS SEE AMERICAN TROOPS AS THE WORST OF INFIDELS.
OUR TROOPS BRING WAR, AND MUSLIMS MUST WIN THOSE WARS.
BEFORE THE AMERICAN PRESENCE IN AFGHANISTAN, EVERY MAJOR POWER ON THIS EARTH HAD TRIED TO CONQUER THERE.
THOUGH SOME MAY HAVE SEEMED TO SUCCEED, WE CAN SEE THAT WAS NOT THE CASE IN THE LONG RUN.
PERSIA INVADED, PERSIANS WENT AWAY.
ALEXANDER THE GREAT INVADED, NO GREEKS REMAIN THERE.
GENGHIS KHAN INVADED, NO MONGOLS ARE LEFT.
IN RECENT HISTORY, ENGLAND, RUSSIA AND FRANCE GAVE UP ON THEIR INVASIONS AND PULLED OUT THEIR MILITARY FORCES, CUT THEIR LOSSES, AND GOT THEIR ARMIES OUT OF THAT PLACE.
USAMA BIN LADEN EVEN LEFT AFGHANISTAN BEFORE BUSH DECLARED WE HAD TO GO INTO THAT NATION TO GET HIM.
BIN LADEN HAD SENSE ENOUGH TO GET OUT...
BUT AMERICA HAS FOUND PROFIT IN WAR.
AMERICA IS DETERMINED TO KEEP THE WAR MACHINE OILED, IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE.
OUR IGNORANT ELECTED OFFICIALS HAVE PUT THE PROFITS OF MEGA-CORPORATIONS WHO BUILD THE WEAPONS OF WAR, WHO ARE IN THE BUSINESS OF WAR, OVER THE LIVES OF OUR BEST, OUR OWN BELOVED SONS AND DAUGHTERS WHOM THEY SEND TO WAR.
THESE CORPORATE-LOVING WHORES OF OURS DON'T CARE IF WE LOSE OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS.
THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT PROFITS.
THEY DON'T CARE IF THE COST OF WAR IS TOO HIGH FOR US, THE "COMMON MAN", THE "GUY ON THE STREET", OR THAT THE TAX BURDEN ON US TO FUND THESE WARS OF LIES AND DECEIT BREAKS OUR BACKS AND ROBS US OF THOSE WE SO LOVE.
THEY ARE AFTER CONTINUED PROFITS FOR THEIR WALL STREET 'JOHNS', THE VERY ONES WHO KEEP DONATING TO THEIR CAMPAIGN "WAR CHESTS".
THEY WANT PROFITS TO SHOW UP ON WALL STREET.
EVEN IN POLITICAL ELECTIONS, WAR HAS TO BE MENTIONED..."WAR CHESTS" IS JUST ONE PHRASE THAT PROVES WHAT OUR "LEADERS" ARE ABOUT.
AFTER ALL THIS TIME, AFGHAN'S OPIUM PRODUCTION REACHED AN ALL-TIME HIGH THIS YEAR. OPIUM HAS BEEN PROTECTED, EVEN BY AMERICAN TROOPS, AS LONG AS WE'VE BEEN IN THAT COUNTRY.
OPIUM IS ALSO A BIG MONEY-MAKER.
"A November 13 press release issued by the UNODC — the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime — stated that opium poppy cultivation in Afghanistan rose 36 percent in 2013, which is a record high. Additionally, opium production amounted to 5,500 tons, up by 49 percent since 2012."
AMERICA'S PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES PROBABLY SMILED ALL THE WAY TO THEIR BANKS.
(Big American banks also launder money for drug cartels. See this, this, this and this. Indeed, drug dealers kept the banking system afloat during the depths of the 2008 financial crisis. And the U.S. drug money laundering is continuing to this day.)
WE'VE LOST THOUSANDS OF OUR OWN FLESH AND BLOOD SENSELESSLY TO THESE CONTRIVED, MISBEGOTTEN ABOMINATIONS, THESE WARS THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN DECLARED, THESE INVASIONS BASED ON UTTER FALLACY.
THEY'VE HAD TO DEAL WITH THINGS LIKE WHAT WAS REPORTED HERE SINCE THESE WARS OF LIES BEGAN!
["Military leaders endangering the health of 13,500 Marines and civilians at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan by burning toxic trash in an open-air pit while choosing not to safely dispose of the waste inside four new, on-base incinerators that cost $11.5 million, says a government report released Thursday."]
AND THIS..."Mystery illness kills Missouri soldier: Josh Neusche died Saturday; his family waits for answers"
AND THIS... "In the past, infectious diseases have produced major disruptions in both military campaigns and humanitarian efforts. "
NOW, JUST AS OUR TROOPS AND THEIR FAMILIES WERE BEGINNING TO CELEBRATE AN END TO THE LUNACY OF THIS NIGHTMARE, JUST WHEN THE REPEATED DEPLOYMENTS FOR WAR-WEARY, UNDER-SUPPLIED, OFTEN FORGOTTEN SOLDIERS SEEMED ABOUT TO END, THE NIGHTMARE IS EXTENDED BY AN ADMINISTRATION WHICH PROMISED US ALL AN END TO THE AMERICAN MILITARY PRESENCE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
TO OUR CURRENT AND PAST PRESIDENTS..."YOU LIED!"
TO OUR CONGRESS..."YOU SWORE TO THOSE LIES. YOU ALLOWED THIS, YOU TRAITOROUS PROSTITUTES!"
TO ALL OUR ELECTED DOGS, "YOU ARE COMPLICIT IN THE MURDERS, THE WAR CRIMES THAT OTHER NATIONS HAVE ACCUSED YOU ALL OF AND SHOULD BE TRIED FOR THAT AND, IF FOUND GUILTY, TREATED JUST AS THOSE AT NUREMBERG WERE.
THERE IS NO VALID REASON, NOT ONE, FOR US TO KEEP OUR TROOPS IN ANY SANDLOT NATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
THAT IS NOT OUR 'RIGHT'. IT IS NOT GOING TO HELP ANYTHING BUT THE WAR MACHINE COMPANIES!
WE DON'T HAVE ANY RIGHT TO GO INTO OTHER NATIONS THAT HAVE NEVER COMMITTED AN ACT OF WAR AGAINST THE UNITED STATES!
WE CAN'T JUSTIFY OUR PRESENCE IN 120+ NATIONS ON EARTH!
WE DON'T ALLOW THEIR TROOPS IN OUR COUNTRY TO HELP US "BE A DEMOCRATIC NATION", AND WE HAVE NO RIGHT IN THEIRS!
IF THEY CAN'T ATTEND TO THEIR OWN INTERNAL CONFLICTS, THAT'S SIMPLY THE WAY THE BALL BOUNCES!
IF AMERICA COULD WIN HER FREEDOM AND START A NEW NATION WITH UNDER A MILLION SOULS FIGHTING TO ACCOMPLISH IT, SO CAN THEY!
AT THE LEAST WE SHOULD LET OTHER NATIONS TRY TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN PROBLEMS AND STAY THE HELL OUT OF OTHER PEOPLE'S BUSINESS!
BUT WAR IS BUSINESS, AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S BUSINESS AS USUAL AND WE'LL KEEP SACRIFICING OUR BELOVED SONS AND DAUGHTERS TO THE GREAT FALSE GODS OF WALL STREET, THE WAR-MAKERS, THE WAR MACHINE THAT DRIVES US TO MAKE THOSE SACRIFICES OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
IT'S A TRULY SAD DAY WHEN AMERICANS ACCEPT THAT WE WILL MAKE SUCH SACRIFICES FOR ANOTHER 11 YEARS!
I PERSONALLY KNOW MILITARY FAMILIES WHOSE HOPES HAVE BEEN CRUSHED BY TODAY'S ANNOUNCEMENT.
THEIR TEARS BREAK MY HEART.
I CURSE THOSE WHO HAVE MADE THIS DECISION, I TRULY DO.
IT IS LUNACY AND HIGH TREASON.
THE NEW ROME, AMERICA, NEEDS TO MAN-UP AND BRING OUR WARRIORS HOME!
BRING BACK OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS AND LET THEM HAVE A CHANCE AT LIFE, AT PEACE, AND NO MORE WALL STREET WARS!
AMERICANS, ALL OF US, ARE MORE THAN CAPABLE OF DEFENDING THE "HOMELAND"!
LET ANYONE DARE CROSS OUR BORDERS AND FACE THE WELL-ARMED AMERICAN CITIZENS!
LET OUR TROOPS COME AND STAND BESIDE US!
THEY NEED TO DEFEND THE "HOMELAND" FROM HOME FOR A CHANGE!
I DON'T NEED ONE SOLDIER TO GO TO ANY OTHER NATION ON EARTH FOR ME AND YOU DON'T EITHER!
IF CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE WANT A FOREIGN WAR, LET THEM BE THE ONES TO GO FIGHT IT!
IF CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE WANT TO PANDER TO WALL STREET, LET THEM PROSTITUTE THEMSELVES IN THE OPEN, JUST TAKE THE BRIBES AND THE PAY-OFFS ON PRIME-TIME TV.
OBAMA ALSO, LIKE ALL OTHER POLITICIANS HAVE, PROMISED US TRANSPARENCY IN GOVERNMENT.
WHY DIDN'T HE JUST TELL US IN 2009 THAT HE INTENDED TO BRIBE KARZAI TO LET OUR TROOPS STAY THERE AND GUARD THOSE POPPY FIELDS?
WHY NOT BE TRANSPARENT ABOUT HIS INTENTION TO KEEP OUR MILITARY FORCES ABROAD, AND NEVER LET THEM ALL COME HOME?
I AM SICK OF THE LIES!
I AM SICK OF READING THE NAMES OF THE DEAD AND THE GRIEVING!
I AM SICK OF THE TRAITORS WHO HAVE SOLD US ALL OUT!
IF WE ALL SIT STILL FOR 11 MORE YEARS OF AMERICAN TROOPS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, THEN I AM SICK OF ALL OF US AS WELL.
IT SHOULD BE OUR CALL ON THIS, NOT THE WHORES IN WASHINGTON!
REMEMBER THIS AT THE POLLS, AMERICA!
REMEMBER ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE FIRST LIES.
REMEMBER THAT IT'S US, WE, THE PEOPLE, WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO GUARD THIS REPUBLIC AND MAKE SURE ITS CONSTITUTION IS FOLLOWED TO THE LETTER!
OUR FLAG IS FLYING UPSIDE DOWN...NATION IN DISTRESS!!!
NATION IN DISTRESS!
WE MUST HELP SAVE HER!
WE MUST HELP OUR TROOPS COME HOME!
AFGHANISTAN'S POPPY FIELDS BE DAMNED!
OIL FIELDS BE DAMNED!
THE MIDDLE EAST BE DAMNED!
BRING OUR LOVED ONES HOME!!!
ONE MILLION WOUNDED WARRIORS....ONE MILLION!!!!
WE SENT THE BEST WE HAVE TO THE MIDDLE EAST, OUR GREATEST TREASURE...OUR OWN FLESH AND BLOOD...AND WE GOT BACK AT LEAST ONE MILLION BROKEN BODIES, AND WE NEVER GOT BACK THE THOUSANDS WHO PERISHED THERE!
HOW MANY THOUSANDS WE MAY NEVER KNOW, BUT IT'S MORE THAN HAVE BEEN REPORTED. ONLY THOSE WHO DIED "BOOTS ON THE GROUND" WERE "OFFICIALLY" COUNTED AS "KIA". IF THEY MADE IT TO A HELICOPTER, AMBULANCE, AND MADE IT OFF THE BATTLEFIELD ALIVE, THEN THEY WERE COUNTED AS HAVING DIED OF "COMPLICATIONS" OF WOUNDS OR OF SURGERIES.
AREN'T YOU SICK OF THIS 'WAR' YET?
The United States has likely reached a grim but historic milestone in the war on terror: 1 million veterans injured from the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. But you haven’t heard this reported anywhere else.
Because the government is no longer sharing this information with the public.
VA ceased to disclose this data despite President Obama’s second-term campaign pledge that his administration would be open and transparent. Without information about the number of soldiers that have sought government medical help and about the types of injuries they had, policymakers, Capitol Hill and health care professionals may be hamstrung in making decisions about funding for crucial veterans’ health programs and the treatments and diagnostic tools that should be researched and targeted. The reliability of future military strategies could be in jeopardy as well.
VA’s actions are “a gross injustice to veterans and the taxpaying public,” says Anthony Hardie, a Gulf War veteran and veterans’ advocate who has testified before the House Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. Hardie suggests that Congress should tackle the problem, perhaps even legislatively, noting that withholding the data “reflects a VA pattern of abuse and lack of transparency.”
Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., the chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, stopped short of making such a harsh assessment, but just barely. VA’s records on veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq, he says, “were a valuable resource for the committee, and it’s unfortunate that VA has decided to discontinue them for now. We have asked VA to explain what security concerns led to its decision and provide an estimate as to when it will resume production of the reports.”
Miller added: “I hope VA will resolve this issue quickly, because with more than 100 outstanding requests for information from the committee currently pending, the department already has more than enough issues with transparency.”
Phil Budahn, a VA spokesman, says the department was “unable to get an answer” for this story. But veterans’ advocates, lawmakers and others agree that the information VA is currently withholding is important information that Americans have a right to know. And it isn’t just a matter of acknowledging — or refusing to acknowledge — a shocking numerical milestone: It could also influence the treatment programs, for which funding must be quantified, and provide useful data for reducing future injuries.
Zacchea sees the potential for disrupting veterans’ programs as unacceptable. “VA must release information about patients and claims among our newest generation of veterans for the year 2013 so Congress makes sure VA has enough funding,” he says.
Linda Bilmes, a Harvard professor and author of ”The Three Trillion Dollar War,” who has testified before Congress about the cost of war, agrees.
“We need accurate data on casualties in order to make decisions about treatment, research, operations and budget,” she says. “But we also need to know how much of our medical effort should be devoted to specific conditions such as psychiatric, pain relief, physiotherapy, substance abuse, etc. And regionally, we need to know where the demand for services is outstripping supply.”
THEY USE THEM, TOSS THEM ASIDE, AND REFUSE TO TELL US HOW MANY HAVE BEEN SO ABUSED BY THE VERY GOVERNMENT THAT PUT THEM IN HARM'S WAY, THAT SENT THEM TO PAY THIS ENORMOUS PRICE!
WE SHOULD BE ENRAGED!!!
WE SHOULD BE UP IN ARMS AND STORMING WASHINGTON TO STAND FOR OUR FALLEN HEROES, OUR VETERANS, THOSE WHO ARE STILL THERE!!!
WHERE ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS' GUTS?
AND STILL THEY SERVE, OUR BEST, OUR BRAVE!
