Deadliest month for U.S. in Afghan War

The big question is why are they there? I remember when the whole mess started often hearing about Karzai having worked for the CIA. And today, I saw on Reuters:

" The brother of Afghan President Hamid Karzai has been getting regular payments from the Central Intelligence Agency, The New York Times reported on Tuesday, citing current and former U.S. officials. Ahmed Wali Karzai is a suspected player in Afghanistan's opium trade and has been paid by the CIA over the past eight years for services..."

The trend of growing violence in Afghansistan and Iraq since Obama came to power shows his policies to be failing.

We can expect more terror attacks against our troops, with even heavier casualties with the Obama cuts in military spending.

Increased violence in Iraq, increased violence in Pakistan, increased violence in Afghanistan, increased sabre rattling from N. Korea, increased sabre rattling from Iran, US citizens held hostage in three countries, Columbia seizes a US leased gold mine, Russia bluffs the US to drop the missle shield, hummmmm, anyone see a pattern here? Nope not, me, I am a dubmocrat and can't see with my head so far up by backside.....

Sure is different. Bush projected stupidity. Obama isn't any better, but he "projects" well.

Time to stop campaigning and actually lead.

I don't think our community organizer in chief can cut it.

Biden is polling is even lower than Cheney.

I think we might see Billy Joe Clinton hanging around the White House more in the coming months...

Wayne - "Starts at the top. Mr Obama projects weakness. He really is different from Mr Bush."

You're right. Mr. Bush projected stupidity and excelled at doing so.

So Bush projected stupidity, eh ?

I would like to know then what that says about the Brits, Aussies, Canadians, Germans, kiwis and NATO forces who followed us into Afghanistan...

Sympathy and stiff-arming from Washington.

sabi: Today, I'm with you. I heard that piece on Kazai's brother and they were saying his responsible for filling up Queens which is NOW notorious for Heroine. And yet, Kazai does what? Man, the US got played and we are still getting played.

midnightpromise: shh! you are being monitored!
