Insanity In Afghanistan

I was amused by those who were trying to tout Obama's sending of 30,000 troops to Afghanistan as his committment to win the war on terror.  I, as well as anyone else who is not a progressive liberal, knew that this was nothing but a canard by this deceptive clown we call our president. 

Here are the current rules of engagement on the ground in Afghanistan:

-   our troops are forbidden to defend themselves as Taliban terrorists fire rockets at U.S. forward-operating bases. The reason? The terrorists may be within 500 feet of civilian villages.

-   forces have also been ordered to remove watchtowers because villagers' "privacy" might be violated. Never mind the mortar shells raining down on the Americans.
-   our troops have been commanded to cease combat if a Taliban terrorist drops his weapon after firing his.

With the Taliban given such strategic advantages, it's no wonder our forces are seeing some of the war's highest casualties.
This is what you get when you elect an America-hating socialist to do a patriot's job.
