Afghans Kill Two More Americans – 2000 Troops Now Dead: Gen. John Allen – We’re Willing to Sacrifice But Not Be Murdered

Two more Americans were killed by an Afghan in training, bringing the total number of Americans dying to free a people from a savage ideology to 2000. Earlier this morning, reports indicated that two American soldiers died. At this moment, it appears that one soldier and one “civilian colleague” died. A young Muslim soldier in training with US and other NATO troops says Muslims are also targeting other Muslims. He says it is not only “foreigners” infiltrating and doing the killing. Are the “foreigners” Buddhists? Muslims from outside Afghanistan are Muslim too. This young man, who undoubtedly is trying to work with Americans to learn to protect his country must get familiar with his government’s demands on what he thinks is his religion.

General John Allen

 

“I’m mad as hell about them, to be honest with you,” Gen. John Allen, the top commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, told CBS’ “60 Minutes” in an interview scheduled to be broadcast on Sunday. “It reverberates everywhere across the United States. You know, we’re willing to sacrifice a lot for this campaign, but we’re not willing to be murdered for it.”

So far this year, at least 52 foreign troops — about half of them Americans — have been killed in insider attacks. The Afghan government has not provided statistics on the number of its forces killed in insider attacks. However, U.S. military statistics obtained by The Associated Press show at least 53 members of the Afghan security forces had been killed as of the end of August. Source: Fox News

Note to Gen. Allen, it doesn’t matter what you are willing to do or not do, if this administration, and/or past administration’s do not allow you to do your job. While we are attempting to free the people from the Taliban, we need a a clear message: if you kill us, we will kill you in huge numbers, then we’ll leave and you will never get another dime from the United States of America, and further, there will be no visas into the US for your people. Please on this message as well: US troops should never be under the command of NATO.

Here is what the Afghan Defense Ministry says about the “firefight” that left two Americans and three Afghans dead – note a different account from NATO follows:

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.

Here’s NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) statement:

“After a short conversation took place between (Afghan army) and ISAF personnel firing occurred which resulted in the fatal wounding of an ISAF soldier and the death of his civilian colleague,” the coalition said in a statement. It said the three Afghan soldiers died “in an ensuing exchange of fire.”

Other news of Islamic savagery – in just this one Sunday morning:

Bangladesh – Muslim protesters torch Buddhist Temples and Homes

Children Killed in Kenyan church attack – Muslim al-Shabab suspected.

Islamist Insurgents in Thailand fired grenades at a fair, injuring 30. Five died in southern Thailand in a separate event – blamed on Muslim insurgents. Both events are blamed on local officials attempting to “win the trust of local Muslims.

Iraq: Sunni Islamists killed 32 in protest to the Shite government.

Nigeria: Zaria, a city dominated by Shite Muslims in a country where Sunnis dominate, had a bomb detonate close to a school. Two died.

There are no lovely days in the neighborhood, if the neighborhood happens to be Muslim.

    I’ve come to the conclusion [not very easily] that it is way past time to pull all of our Troops out of that sewer and quick. There is no reasonable justification to continue suffering the losses that we are, especially from the National Forces of Afghanistan.

    We’ve already announced the date and time that we plan to surrender [withdraw], the ROE has become asinine and border on insanity. Our Troops are being killed by the very people they are there to support and train. As if any of that isn’t absurd enough, after “our” Troops come under attack and are murdered . . . they are “ordered” to undergo “sensitivity” training.

    It has been reported by Michael Yon [a great war correspondent from both Iraq and Afghanistan] and others that NATO and the U.S. Command has ordered that all “Close Air Support” stop. I guess that would be considered playing “unfair” and being insensitive. [I’ll refrain from giving you my opinion about that issue]

    How much more can we ask our American Forces [along with NATO] to endure? The dimoCraps argued for years we were fighting the “wrong” war, that we should’ve been in Afghanistan. In 2009 they were handed a virtual victory in Iraq along with a SOFA agreement, that all parties acknowledged needed to be extended in increments.

    As usual, the dims have never seen a war that they didn’t want to “cut and run from”. They never negotiated for a SOFA extension. Moved the emphasis to Afghanistan, took months to develop a strategy and fired numerous Generals and replaced them, with another. They then fired the General that had the most experience and track record. Announced a surrender date [withdrawal].

    The Iranians are now using Iraq as a super highway to Syria. They now have a opportunity to move whatever armament they have that much closer to Israel. Forty percent of the prisoners that we release from Gitmo, return to the battlefield to kill our Troops and our Ambassador in Lybia. Another great idea from the members of the dimoCrap party, who pushed that issue on Bush.

    Another dimoCrap party second place finish for the United States. Why we allow them to continually do this is beyond any reasonable logic. It’s time to get our Forces the hell out of there.

  • You go to work everyday with these guys. You’re training them to do their jobs or you work side by side with them in an office or complex. You trust them. You’ve talked with them about their hopes and dreams and about yours. They’ve seen pictures of your family and remarked how fortunate you are. You’ve seen their family and told them they have been blessed. You’ve gone to lunch together; you consider him a close friend. You’re at work one day and your “close friend” standing behind you suddenly says “Allahu Akbar” and pulls the trigger to the gun he has pointed at the back of your head

  • You can’t change their nature.

  • No warning.. we just pull out in the middle of the night and let the slime kill each other.. Not one more of our men or women killed.. Please.

    • David, I heard Ret. General Keane talking about this today, because your position has been mine for awhile, but I think he changed my mind. While he didn’t mention Russian’s very public defeat there, I’m sure that was part of his reply. He said we must stay the course and finish the job until the time is up, because no to do so will haunt us.

      I can see that that’s probably the right thing to do, but with the caution that for every Afghan that we are training that kills one of our troops, we’ll kill 50 in you government, and then 50 of those in training, plus their families, and when there is no one left to train, then we’ll go home. (My position, not his).

      • Well then we sound like Nazis.. not sure that’s something I’d be saying.. haha. I mean if we stay till the mission is over.. we need to keep the Afghans in front of us, never behind. If one of them kill one our men, we disarm them all and leave them with nothing but Boy Scout knives to defend themselves on patrols.. See how long before the good guys in the Afghan military start weeding out their own.. It could work.

        • David, so far the Afghan government hasn’t asked us to leave, so I don’t think we sound like Nazis, and they came after us and we haven’t finished. I agree that they we must find a way to keep them in front of us (and without ammo:-) Your idea is perfect.

          • Much better than lining people up and shooting them.. anyway.. going to join the Bozeman Tea Party to watch the debate tonight in Bozeman.. Boy am I praying for a miracle.

            • David, that sounds like a LOT of fun and a great idea!

              • Well if it’s a victorious debate.. better with friends.. if it’s a total bust.. better with friends.. win win either way.. I’m thinking positive.. so it will be a BRILLIANT VICTORY..

      • corpses aplenty

        “for every Afghan that we are training that kills one of our troops, we’ll kill 50 in you government, and then 50 of those in training, plus their families, and when there is no one left to train, then we’ll go home. (My position, not his).”

        That is truly what Christ would have us do, you are a fine bible-believing Christian Maggie, as the lord told us –
        “massacre and kill til no more are left of those who you hate- let the little corpses come unto me”.

        you are a sick fraud guided by evil

  • shalom

    He was useful to Israel, and thats all that matters. I takes a lot of american casualties to occupy central asia and the middle east, and a lot more will need to be sacrificed.

    Freedom isnt free, and these men know that they died for Israels safety and security.

    • shalom, other than the fact that Muslims hate Israel slightly more than they do any other infidel, Afghanistan has nothing to do with Israel. This is about the Taliban and al-Qaeda and 9/11.
