72% of U.S. Casualities in Afghan War Under Obama's Watch

President Barack Obama said U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan will adopt a “support role” starting in the spring of 2013, to allow Afghan police and soldiers to take full responsibility of  the country’s security, a nation where 2,053 American soldiers have died since the war started on Oct. 7,  2001.

Seventy-two percent of those casualties occurred during Obama’s first term.

“And today we agreed, as Afghan forces take the lead and as President Karzai announces the final phase of the transition, coalition forces will move to a support role this spring,” Obama said Friday at the White House, alongside Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

    Karzai is a puppet of the US and has been for years. Is he a puppet capitalist or a puppet communist?

    this is no surprise;; ONLY A HARVARD EGGHEAD could think you may prosecute a violent war by “not shooting back” and giving medals for RESTRAINT. JUST goes to show you how irrelevant and out of touch the kenyan really is.

      I’m glad you did not use the N word to describe that boy obama, he frowns on that.

    • DrSique says:

      Exactly!!! Rules of engagement that stress one must actually be shot before firing back are counterproductive. The leftwing genius doesn’t know squat about how to win an armed conflict and Americans are paying with their very lives.

    LIKE THE PUPPETS ; MUBARACK, QUDAFFY, ASSAD, BHUTTO; just wanted American money????

    Well, kiss Afghanistan goodbye. And kiss the sacrifices in blood and treasure trying to civilize that islamic hell hole goodbye.

    I suggest that Mooch and the First Brats vacation there in 2014.

  5. Karzai will be on the next plane to Switzerland just after we leave to spend our “Foreign Aid tax dollars!

    Ultimately, this was all George Bush’s fault…blame the g@dd$#n Republicans. Well, at least Dick Cheney added billions of dollars to his old company Halliburton in these phoney wars. Cheney was the first VP to represent corporations in public office–he did a great job…at the expense of America’s blood and treasure.

    obama has their back covered like he did those brave men in Benghazi. What a sickening thought a boy in charge of destroying America.

    I bet Obama took their bullets away from them a long time ago. These men and women are left defenseless against the Afghan army, and the Taliban. We shouldn’t be training ANY foreign country our tactics of war fighting.They will turn it on us and use our own fighting techniques against us.
