Seven soldiers died in Afghanistan this week.

The longer we are in that country, the easier it will be for the Taliban and different militias to resent our presence and mobilize forces against us. Sadly, I'm afraid more will die there for no good reason.

If this bugs you then just close your eyes and repeat the following to yourself until you begin to feel better:

They hate us because of our freedoms.
They hate us because of our freedoms.
They hate us because of our freedoms.
They hate us because of our freedoms.
They hate us because of our freedoms.

All you Obama supporters that emailed me and told me he was the peace candidate have some splainin' to do.

give obama a chance. he still has to make the waters recede, so he's kinda too busy for all that peace business.

Yeah Obama supporters! Where is your god now?

Is there really anyone so poorly informed that they don't know that Obama promised he would escalate the war in Afghanistan?

He only said he'd pull out of Iraq, which he is doing. Maybe you noticed the photos of Iraqis cheering the other day as US forces ceased combat operations?

He may be the only living politician who is doing exactly what he said he'd do.

Obama never claimed to be the peace President. He said quite clearly that he wasn't against war, just against stupid wars.

Hence, pull out of Iraq over the next 18 months, beef up forces in Afghanistan to cripple Al Qaida and the Taliban.

If you don't get that, then you weren't paying attention. Don't criticize the man for doing what he promised because you have a false idea of what he stands for.

I criticized Obama PRECISELY for what he promised to do. I knew he wasn't the peace president. I didn't say the president had explainin to do...I said his supporters do.

Scores of them told me I should vote for Obama if I wanted peace. Morons.

Yes, whoever suggested that you vote for Obama to effect world peace was a moron.

You should vote for Mahatma Gandhi for that one. Or the American version, Dennis Kucinich, if he can get off the UFO long enough.

They just had the wrong reason. You should have voted for Obama because he's smarter and more in touch with reality than John McCain, and unlike Bob Barr, he had a chance to win.

obama just seems smart because he was campaigning with joe biden.
