Obama Not Really Proud of Troops but Generally Proud of Troops

In the wake of a U.S. soldier killing 12 (or 16) civilians in Afghanistan, and with countless soldiers spending multiple tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama says he is “proud, generally,” of our troops. Not “really” proud, or “very” proud, or “enormously” proud, but “proud generally.” He could have chosen any word or words he wanted and he chose “generally proud.” We’ve spent Billions, not on war but to improve the life of Afghans. Our soldiers have seen terrible, unforgettable things over and over – not the things they have done, but the things Muslims do to themselves as well as to us. Those images will never leave their memory bank. Because both Bush and Obama have mismanaged the war and refused to win it in a quest to win the hearts and minds of Muslims who adhere to a holy book that calls for their deaths, we have ruined the lives of hundreds of thousands of our military – forever – BECAUSE. WE. NO. LONGER. DO. WAR.
