So Obama apologizes to Hamid Karzi cause we burned those korans.  So to return the favor, two afgan soldiers KILL two US soldiers.



 



 



How does this incident square with the notion "right war"?



 



Leftists please justify your support for the occupation of Afganistan.  Thank you.*



 



 



 



 



*Bonus points for not using the words "Bush, Halliburton, or oil.".

I think they know better than us.

John R. Allen (born 1953/1954) is a United States Marine Corps four-star general. On July 18, 2011, General Allen assumed command of International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) as Commander, U.S. Forces Afghanistan (USFOR-A), succeeding Army General David Petraeus.[2]

Wouldn't it be more refreshing to hear a president say:

 

"What the "F" is wrong with you people!" you are killing people for hurting a book". You can't reason with extremists. Get out of there, then the next time they hit us at home, make it rain plutonium.

It was alleged that these Korans were used to pass prisoner messages, if this was the case, they ceased to be religious books and became contraband.

I'm sick and tired of brave American servicemen dying, getting wounded, sometimes very severely, and being seperated from their families, for these ungrateful Afghani ingrates. :mad:

 

Let's get the truck out of there, always retaining our right to return with our 'Big Stick' if the camel muckers get out of line, again. :squid:

The GOP 2012 primary candidates are also split in their responses. Jon Huntsman, who had previously called for a speedy withdrawal, doesn’t think the president’s plan goes far enough—nor does Rep. Ron Paul—while Tim Pawlenty thinks it goes too far. Mitt Romney landed somewhere in the middle with his statement: “We all want our troops to come home as soon as possible, but we shouldn’t adhere to an arbitrary timetable on the withdrawal of our troops from Afghanistan,” he wrote. “This decision should not be based on politics or economics.”

 

 

And House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi took the opposite view. “It has been the hope of many in Congress and across the country that the full drawdown of U.S. forces would happen sooner than the President laid out,” she wrote in a statement, suggesting the nation should focus instead on creating jobs and rebuilding a strong economy. “We will continue to press for a better outcome.”

Another poster in another thread brought up a good point:

He mentioned that Americans riot over shoes.

It is not like the rioting Americans had no shoes either.

 

We are pretty weird too, and I hope no one got killed in the shoe riots like they did in the book riots.

What there to win? To much stupid pride to leave at the expense of the troops on the ground

 

That isn't it though. The folks in charge generally aren't that stupid. It has more to do with the hope that staying longer makes success more likely, and thus the loss of life have more meaning. The hard part is always knowing when to cut your loses, as opposed to failing to invest enough in success. It's really no more stupid or cynical than that. Everyone just has a different view of the best course of action, and no one can know for sure what the results will be.
