Two More US Soldiers Killed by Afghan “Allies”

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 2, 2012

The Associated Press reported on Thursday that two more American soldiers were killed in Afghanistan by an Afghan soldier.  This increases to six the number of American soldiers killed by our supposed Afghan allies in the past two weeks alone.  Earlier this week, PBS reported that 20% of US deaths in Afghanistan this year were caused by our Afghan “allies”.

The Afghans excuse for killing the American soldiers and the associated rioting was a supposed burning of Korans by the US government.  However, given the violent Afghan history that has been ongoing long before America became a superpower, this is but a lame excuse for killing those they disagree with.

Showing weaknesses in his history knowledge and diplomatic skills, President Obama apologized to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the book burning incident.  However, apologies are not what radical Islamists want from the West.

When George W. Bush was president, the Left, its allies in the mainstream media, and yes Barack Obama himself, blasted Bush’s war efforts on nearly a daily basis.  Now, over three years into Pres. Obama’s Afghan War, there is hardly a peep from this group.  Where are the Cindy Sheehan’s?  Where are the Jane Fonda’s?  Where is the mainstream media?  Evidently this group is not as peace-loving as they proclaim.  Meanwhile, brave American soldiers continue to die in a war effort that has no chance of a positive outcome.
