Our president can't make a

Our president can't make a decision as to whether or not to send needed troops; we've put into the most powerful office in the world a man who couldn't decide anything in congress, who never had any connection to the military, yet he won't listen to the people who know the need, the commanders on the ground. If we have no objective there, if we don't have technology to detect and disarm IEDs, if we can't develop armored vehicles that can save our troops, then bring them home and let those people do what they will for and with themselves. Right now a family of a family soldier is having a visitation for their husband and father in Savannah, killed in an ambush when they ran out of ammunition and were left in a remote outpost without the means to protect themselves. Is this why we have people in Afghanistan? If the supposed commander in chief has no idea what to do, as he has had no idea what to do about ANYTHING so far, it's time to just bring everyone home and set up protections on our borders and within our homeland security to keep US safe.

Either put in more troops to get the job done or get the heck out. My sympathy for the family of this fallen hero.

This is the "result" of
Unpublished

This is the "result" of George Bush's foreign policy (the 16th MP Bde's Orders authorizing deployment was signed by President Bush) and to attempt to drag the new administration into these deaths is dishonesty at its worst. How foolish! This president is trying STOP the killing, FOOL! Saying anything is typical of idiots, but Sgt. Rudzinski's family deserve respect and honor for being willing to die in the line of duty. This family and others should rest assured that the current administration & CINC is actively working to end this madness started by foolish Bush. The damage done, the lives lost, the dreams faded, by that clown will be felt for years to come. Again, another victim of Bush's extreme poor leadership and hopes that his family gain strength from the new direction in foreign policy, which will save lives and produce better results.
