Afghanistan; The Forgotten War


Afghanistan has become what most considers a forgotten war.  Today, many people focus more on campaigning and making themselves look good in front of the potential voters, however most have forgotten we still have men and women in Afghanistan, dying without a resolution from the U.S. leadership.

The reason I’m pointing this out is because I read a story this morning from: http://www.military.com/daily-news/2012/08/22/americans-tune-out-afghan-war-as-fighting-rages-on.html?ESRC=sm_todayinmil.nl  It makes me sick to my stomach because I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.  Many people will have “Support Our Troops” bumper stickers and such, but really have no clue about what’s going on with them.

I can’t say a time or anything, but I have buddies that are about to embark back there and I know every one of them are scared, even though they say they aren’t.  This war is fought the way the big belly politicians sitting behind a desk or pedestal want it to be fought and it’s a coward’s way.  They make us fight with our hands tied behind our backs, meaning we aren’t allowed to fight the way we were trained.  They get upset and threaten us with Leavenworth if we fire a shot and they think it wasn’t justified.  Have they forgotten how wars are fought or is it they are traitors to their own countrymen and much rather see our men and women suffer death under these kinds of circumstances? 

This is where I come to my conclusion.  I believe our guys should be back here in this country, protecting our borders from the illegals coming here and taking our jobs.  They need to be here to help squash these gangs that are running around and getting away with striking terror in the hearts and souls of the American Citizen. 

This pacifist lifestyle our politicians like to play is not only pointless, but killing our men and women at a very high rate.  It’s our new Vietnam and nobody is really caring anymore.  I say rally together and get them back home so we can get this country back on track.  No longer do we need to meddle with other countries right now because our own needs us and that’s my idea of foreign policy.  Stop outsourcing and shut down these borders, then we will be able to stand as a strong country once again.

  1. There are some of us that care a lot! The problem with most Americans, is that they are wusses, They look at what happened during the first Vietnam War and feel that it won't do any good. It's really sad because We feel that we should rally together also. Soldiers and Civilians alike need to stand together in this and just take that chance! Screw their little Leavenworth threat! What would be worse? Leavenworth or another trip to the Middle-East! The larger number of people that decide to stand against this the better!

  2. Another problem with civilians is they have a short attention span. They are easily bored. This war has gone on almost as long as Vietnam. At first everyone was so Gung Ho! But now, everyone is bored with it doesn't want to hear anymore - especially when it's time for the next round of American Idol and Hell's Kitchen.

    Unfortunately, the soldiers CAN'T forget.

    Dan 88!
