Troop Morale Down in Obama's Continued Illegal Occupation of Afghanistan
Morale has fallen among soldiers in Afghanistan, where troops are seeing record violence in the 8-year-old war, while those in Iraq show much improved mental health amid much lower violence, the Army said Friday. It was the first time since 2004 that soldier suicides in Iraq did not increase. Self-inflicted deaths in Afghanistan were on track to go up this year.
I thought The ILCP said that since W. Bush failed to capture Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan, that it was a failed war effort and that we should redeploy our Soldiers and bring them home. Well, Obama hasn't captured Bin Laden, so...why are we still in Afghanistan? What are the benchmarks? What is the point? Why are we there? Obama receives a Free Pass in not having to answer these same questions that were asked of W. Bush on a minute-by-minute basis by the ILCP during his Admin.
The Afghan report also found a shortage of mental health workers to help soldiers who needed it, partly because of the buildup Obama started this year with the dispatch of more than 20,000 extra troops.
Other findings of the Afghanistan survey included:
* Exposure to combat, long recognized as a strong factor in mental health problems, was significantly higher this year than rates in 2005 and similar to rates in 2007 for the combat units.
* Combat units reported significantly lower unit morale in the last six months of their tours of duty, more evidence of the wearing affect of long deployments.
But the bi-racial Kenyan-born piece of shit receives the Coveted Free Pass from all the good little goose-stepping Marxist, America-hating, knuckle-dragging drooling LiberNazis. This is no surprise to the rest of us. We know they hate America and they hate - absolutely hate - the U.S. Military.
All the bloodshed, all the torture, all the carnage, the decreased morale, the increase in suicides, the billions of dollar spent on Obama's Illegal Occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq. It's all his fault. He owns it now, fully and wholly. And so do his Cultists who, for almost eight years, did nothing but denigrate the U.S. Soldiers in Afghanistan.
Self hater american leftists absolutely loothe America in what it is and everything that is going to weaken America in its moral fibre is good for them, absolutely ANYTHING!!
Yeah right and I am the Pope.
Either conform and adapt to Radical Islam or...have your head sliced off. Those are the choices. We could fight this foe, but we no longer have the politicians in the U.S. to do this. The pacifists and appeasers have taken control, and it's a sad, sad, sad time for us and our Allies.
