Thank you George.

This is Obama's fault.

Thank you, President Obama!

There were three U.S. troops who died in December as a result of non-combat related incidents.

That asshole Obama. If he really cared about the troops, he'd be getting more of them killed.
 
2010-01-01 01:34:04 PM
I'm sure this will all be credited to Obama by his lapdog media real soon.

You know, this is really awesome and I'm glad to hear it and it's good to know that the supreme mess made in this area by the previous administration is winding down like it needs to (and, yes, winding down in part as a result of rather desperate actions they undertook to correct their mess, which now they only need to admit to making in order to make make complete amends). But a big part of me has to wonder whether articles like this are a good idea. Can't this just be kept sort of quiet? Saying there were "no combat deaths" strikes me as possibly striking the same sort of chord as "bring it on," which is to say some people, bad people who want to see more deaths, will take it as a challenge. If you just kind of let things go, quietly, it seems like it would all just sort of fizzle out and peter away.

Well, peter away to Afghanistan, which is also a mess because of the previous administrations screw-ups. But you know what I mean.

LOL lets sit back and watch the sheep give Obama credit for this.
 
2010-01-01 01:36:26 PM
This is because Obama forces the troops to run and hide from danger instead of attacking the enemy like real men.

You guys have it absolutely right. Instead of being happy that no Americans were killed in Iraq during the month of December, you should use it as an opportunity to score dumbass political points.

Because anything that might make Obama look good is worthy of derision, even the fact that Americans haven't died.
 
2010-01-01 01:53:26 PM
So we've resorted to renouncing the citizenships of our troops?

Aarontology: You guys have it absolutely right. Instead of being happy that no ONLY THREE Americans were killed in Iraq during the month of December....

Just because these guys weren't shot by insurgents doesn't make them anymore alive. And while they might have died in training or accidents or whatever in Fort Dix, they wouldn't have been in the farking desert.
 
2010-01-01 01:54:09 PM
Damn you Obama! A real American President would have gotten those troops killed!

What?

chemical_angel: What?

Three people died in Iraq in December. This article qualifies "combat deaths" and "non combat deaths".

Now, being a soldier is a dangerous job even when you're NOT in a combat zone, but these guys are still dead, and we shouldn't be celebrating until we don't have anyone in that farking shiathole.

Why would it make Obama look good or bad. As previously stated, it has nothing farking at all to do with anything he's done.

at least they conveniently missed the reply at the top. Must feel safe to have such a selective view of the world.

Because of how people see events like this. Obama, and Democrats in general, can point to fewer combat losses on their watch, and say their policies are working. They could also use the information to show that since things seem to be calming down, a pullout makes even more sense.

Half of politics is how people perceive things, rather than what those things actually are.

It's a good thing there weren't ANY American combat deaths last month. Oh, wait...
 
2010-01-01 02:12:25 PM
I credit the lack of explosives and ordinance supplied during the holiday season/s. China, Russia, Iran, etc. will replinish their stockpiles soon enough.

Round and round; literally and figuratively.

bingo, I'd be willing to bet last December was exactly the same. Maybe the Chinese will take Easter off also and we'll have good news in April.

I guess anything to take away from the massive fail that is the TSA is good for Obama.

Obama should totally have never created the TSA.

Yeah, you guize weren't the only ones who noticed that. I thought it was hilarious we had our reliable Bush/Republican apologist in here first- sadly, we know he wasn't being ironic- and then immediately the "ZOMG Obama!!111" tards start right in. It's so funny, it almost makes me forget the 2-year old I gotta go strip the skin off of in a few minutes, since his daddy threw him into a 160-degree tub as a punishment.

Thanks for the laughs, fellas. I know you weren't intentionally trying to be funny, but it helps anyhow.

I would just like to say that any bad news is Obama's fault and any good news is the residual effects of Dick Cheney's brilliant leadership. And anyone who denies this is a hateful, liberal traitor who should be killed.

My brother gets back from Iraq late tonight or tomorrow around noon. Well, technically, he's already back in that he's stuck in Salt Lake City on standby, but he'll be back here in Oregon within a day.

Unfortunately, he's only on leave, but at least he will get to start the New Year right. :)

My thoughts go to all of the troops still serving in harm's way, and to their families here in the States.

It should probably be noted that Republican women are way hotter than Democratic women.

The Army has outsourced all their combat deaths to Afghanistan.

Not really. But, even if Republican women are way hotter than Democratic women, they are far more batshiat crazy. Who wants to wake up one night to find your gorgeous GOP girlfriend holding a butcher knife against your junk, telling you to convert or else?

It's on his watch so, yes, I can give him credit. I also noted the UndieBomber occurred on his watch too. Just like 9/11 and the Shoe Bomber occurred on Bush's watch.

I love that picture people usually post that shows various attractive Republicans and unattractive Democrats. What makes it great is that most of the Republican women are pundits and cable TV people, and most of the Democrats have held positions of power in government.

Notice he said "and". If he'd said "or" it would be worse.

I resolved to be more positive this year.
