Two Americans were killed today in Afghanistan in battle with Afghan forces.
The AP reported:

A firefight broke out between U.S. forces and their Afghan army allies in eastern Afghanistan Sunday, killing two Americans and three Afghan soldiers and pushing the number of U.S. troops killed in the long-running war 2,000.

The fighting started Saturday when what is believed to have been a mortar fired by insurgents struck a checkpoint set up by U.S. forces in Wardak province, said Shahidullah Shahid, a provincial government spokesman. He said the Americans thought they were under attack from a nearby Afghan army checkpoint and fired on it, prompting the Afghan soldiers to return fire.

The Afghan Defense Ministry said the gunbattle was the result of a “misunderstanding” between international forces and Afghan soldiers manning a checkpoint in the Sayd Abad district.

    I have never seen a media so bad in all my life. So, in the pocket of Obama. I pray each day that my relatives in Afghanistan will have God with them because in my opinion this administration sure isn’t.

    And that is bigger than Obama. Our military is being reduced, Obama wants war to end.

    Middle East is in Crisis and this president is AWOL.

    His actions or no actions are shameful. These members of our military volunteered for this and they are fighting for a nation that would put enemies first?

    Courage is something that comes to some in many different ways but our military is sacrificing the ultimate. Themselves. Obama has sacrifice nothing. But is endanger our forces more each day. What must our Troops be thinking of him.


    Veterans retreating from President Obama

    Back in May, Obama had the lead among Afghanistan and Iraq veterans. But a Reuters/Ipsos poll from September says that’s evaporated, with Romney now up 48 percent to 34 percent.

    Obama campaign aides said the slip in the polls needs to be considered alongside recent surveys showing the president ahead of Romney on questions regarding foreign policy, leadership and keeping the country safe from terrorist attacks. In the campaign’s final weeks, Obama will try to close the gap among veterans by pressing Romney over several foreign policy stumbles as well as a lack of specifics on his plans for troops.

    Left one fact out: Over HALF of those deaths on Barry’s watch. Just another ‘bump in the road’.

  • Economan

    Funny how the left wasted no time in giving us body counts when Bush was President…

  • serfer52

    The MFM USED the military deaths a political tools to hurt the GOP, but when triple the death ratio occurs on the Kommiecrats watch, silance.

    And for that they are traitors & subversives…death to the MFM

    You cannot kowtow to the our enemies without a reaction from our military. And our military can’t ever be compared to this Chicken Chit liberal bias media. The paper pushers of lies and the cheats who could never step on the fields of Afghanistan.

    I have notice not to many journalists in the line of fire in the past few years. But there are those who have recorded a great deal of what is happening and some day this will be reported by those who are the truth patriots of Journalistic integrity.

    Mainstream media is threatening our country’s future
    […………………………………………………..] long article.

    But all I want to conclude to this is that we face a fundamental danger here. The fundamental danger is this: I talked about the defense of the First Amendment. The press’s job is to stand in the ramparts and protect the liberty and freedom of all of us from a government and from organized governmental power. When they desert those ramparts and decide that they will now become active participants, that their job is not simply to tell you who you may vote for, and who you may not, but, worse—and this is the danger of the last two weeks—what truth that you may know, as an American, and what truth you are not allowed to know, they have, then, made themselves a fundamental threat to the democracy, and, in my opinion, made themselves the enemy of the American people.

    And it is a threat to the very future of this country if we allow this stuff to go on. We have crossed a whole new and frightening slide on the slippery slope this last two weeks, and it needs to be talked about.

  • The Leftists make fun of Romney’s “magic underwear”, but I’ll bet Obama has a full set of underwear and T-shirts made like that black AQ flag…might even have a set of footed jammies made out of that black flag, too.

    Yeah lets keep our troops with Afghans, how many more do we need to be shot in the back. This is all due to Obama’s rules of engagement. isn’t enough enough?

  • NeoKong

    When the deaths in Iraq hit 2,000 it was news for days but under Obama there is a media blackout.
    I despise them all.

  • Totally agree with #11

  • having front page stories of the bodies of our soldiers coming home, stories of their grieving families and friends, will not advance the political agenda of american tass. our media have willing given up their independence to become a the propaganda wing of a political movement; marxism. this willful political bias by the media may constitute the greatest threat to freedom that the american people have ever faced. the people that call themselves journalists today maybe the most dangerous enemy the american people have ever faced.

  • l.barney

    Sure everyone remembers all those “grim milestone” reports when BUSH was president! Those pin head journalists will deny it now, but we know better. Every day and every hour those reports were trumpeted-you couldn’t get away from them! Another four more years of O and they’ll be more media silence.

    It Has Always Been The Soldier

    It is the soldier,
    not the President who gives US Democracy.

    It is the soldier,
    not the Congress who takes Care of US.

    It is the soldier,
    not the Reporter who has given us Freedom of Press.

    It is the soldier,
    not the Poet who has given us Freedom of Speech.

    It is the soldier,
    not the campus [community] Organizer who
    has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate.

    It is the soldier,
    who salutes the flag;
    who serves beneath the flag,
    and whose coffin is draped by the flag,
    that allows the protester to burn the flag.

    ~ Father Dennis O’Brien, US Marine Corp. Chaplain

    God Bless America!

    God Bless Soldiers everywhere for putting THEIR
    lives on the line to protect us ALL from terrorism!

    “Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as
    they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless
    acts they perform for us in our time of need. Please place a
    hedge of protection around each and everyone. I ask this in
    the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen.”

    Marine, 20, killed in Afghanistan explosive is 2,000th soldier to die
    in the ‘War on Terror’

    Once the decision was made not to confront Iran, any hope of winning the “War on Terror” without needlessly shedding a lot more blood turned into dust.

    It was absolutely eye-opening to me that all the “No More War” and “Peace” signs all over the place in Madison, WI (where I am sadly entrenched in an undisclosed location – I dream of Texas!) just disappeared the day after Obama was elected in 2008.

    It’s obviously not PC to protest the war since its Obama’s war now, OK?

    But now that we know Obama has just this week suspended air support for our 68,000 troops in Afghanistan (his favorite war – the one he spoke out in support of on the US Senate floor and as he campaigned in 3008) – as well as last week suspending the joint-agreement with Afghanistan where our troops would continue to train Afghans to defend their own caveman country (catch the news today – another Afghan insider kills two Americans).

    Obama’s war has been lost. America lost this war. Send our troops home tomorrow.

    It’s crazy – but I do worry that if Obama announced this tomorrow – he might actually win.

    So SHHHHHH. Don’t tell others. He has deconstructed so many other systems in America – per the Alinsky playbook – that he is a clear and present danger to us all.

    He cannot win. Wisconsin – a very rural state – went against powerful unions and millions of dollars on 6-15-12 to SWAMP the liberal big city folks.

    I see flyover, red state, rural America (us “clingers to guns and faith”) SWAMPING the polls in November.

    Romney landslide. Wisconsin will save the nation – and we will bring Michigan, maybe Minnesota, Iowa and Ohio with us 🙂 We’ve been tested folks – remember.

    We know what to do.
