US Troop Deaths in Afghanistan Skyrocket Under Obama


U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan have skyrocketed under President Obama. Since 2009, 73 percent of all U.S. deaths in the country have taken place, amounting to 27.1 fatalities per month, on average. Billy and Karen Vaughn, Gold Star parents of Special Operations Chief (SEAL) Aaron Vaughn who was killed in action in 2011, are speaking out about why.

U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan are now forced to fight a two-fronted war. Before each deployment, these soldiers understand fully that day after day they will do battle against relentless terrorists with shifting loyalties and unspeakable hatred. But what none of them could have foreseen was the killing field that would open from their rear: the Continental United States.

Our government’s incessant tightening of already restrictive ROE (Rules of Engagement), compounded by the failed COIN (Counterinsurgency) strategy—also known as “winning hearts and minds”—has made an otherwise primitive enemy formidable.

    Bottom line: obama does not care.

    • sn says:

      Maybe we should send his girls over there. Any bets he really doesn’t care. Probably NOT even his…..!

    • Robert Laity says:

      Obama not only doesn’t care, Obama is actively engaged in sabotaging America. Obama has usurped the Presidency during time of war. Obama is a traitor and a spy. See Laity V NY in SCOTUS at Docket # 13-875 where I say as much.

    obama is a muslim. end of story!

  3. Gloria Wedemeyer says:

    If we aren’t in it to win it, then all troops should come home. Why sacrifice any more of our brave men’s lives for a country like Iraq and Afganistan

    • Harold From Hampton says:

      Gloria,your right!! No reason what so ever..Except to make Little o feel better!!!! BRING THEM HOME!!!!!!NOW!!!!! Harold From Hampton

    • Robert Laity says:

      Speaking of R.O.E.s Obama once ordered our troops NOT to shoot back at the Taliban. BTW, Obama was listed as a criminal against humanity by the Egyptian government who has lodged a complaint with the Hague.

    Where are all the flag draped coffins that were so evident on the state run media during Bush’s term in office? I guess they don’t matter under the tyrants rule. If your not going to try to win it, get out.

    • Robert Laity says:

      Have you seen the recent cold and callous picture of some of our troops gathered around one of those “flag draped coffins”. A caption read “We put the ‘fun’ in Funeral”. What was the message those troops wanted to relay?

    Our lame stream media does not report on Obama’s screw ups and all these service people being killed is just one of the ways he is trying to kill America. He is a Muslim and needs to be impeached. Had this been George Bush, they would have slaughtered him. I’m not too sure the media shouldn’t stand trial also for contributing to the destruction of America. They should have to pay dearly for what they have done, beginning with monetary payments to every family for every dead soldier since Obama took office.

    Just as critical now is to stop him from all the Executive orders he has been doing as he does not have the power to do that. Impeach this monster who hates America. He wanted change alright. Next time people, don’t swoon and cry like your savior has come. The silver tongued devil is what came and bit started his destruction of the American Life as we know it.

  6. So what else is new? Obummer is an outspoken Muslim, wants to destroy Christianity in the US, disrespects the flag as well as our constitution and doesn’t care how many American men and women are killed defending OUR constitution and Him as well. What will it take to kick this liar and thief out of the White House? When will the (Silent Majority) show they’ve had enough and cancel their subscriptions to the liberal media and inform their representatives and senators that they want action or they’re OUT at the next election or even out by recall! Stand up and be counted! Fritz

    The most under-reported war casualty statistics ever. The MSM reports NONE of our casualties unless it’s in a negative way.

  8. Joseph C. Dowdle MGySgt United States Marine Corps Retired says:

    We all need to stop complaining about the idiot that is supposed to be in charge that never even held down a real job and form a massive march on the Capitol and demand his resignation, so joe the joker will be in charge, then we’ll know the outcome in November. let’s stop talking and take action to make a real difference for this great Country.

    Semper Fidelis

    • Harold From Hampton says:

      Hey Joe, I’m with you! I’M Army then Navy. I did some forward observation work and can still call fire. I was also a marksman. I still have a steady hand and hit the eye at 100 or so. Lets roll

  9. Cindy Mccoy says:

    Yeah he will not let them do their job. He favors the enemy, he is funding them with the money that should be going to out veterans. He takes from them and gives to the guys who wants to kill them. He is a very bad guy. I can’t stand him. I want him put out of office. I want him arrested for treason. He is letting folks die and aiding our enemy!!!!! He needs a PINK SLIP!!!!!!!

  10. T. Jefferson says:

    More information given to our enemies by guess who.

  11. Oldsailor65 says:

    Homeland Security, ICE, etc. are not allowed to enforce the immigration laws. Due to Obama’s “ROE” our men and women in the military are fighting with their hands tied. Everyone in the Obama administration connected with keeping our men and women from doing what they are supposed to do are guilty of TREASON and they all should be tried for treason starting with Obama.
