Soldier's E-mail Changes House Defense Chair's Position on Afghanistan

Army Staff Sgt. Matthew Sitton knew there was the threat of casualties when he deployed to Afghanistan for his third tour of duty, but he said he was "totally on board with sacrifice for [his] country."

What he didn't agree with, though, was his chain of command, who mandated Sitton's 25-man platoon to take twice-daily patrols through fields littered with explosive devices. The platoon was averaging an amputee a day, Sitton said, and since the patrols didn't have an end goal, he didn't see the point of risking such extreme danger.

Sitton was so concerned with his platoon's safety and morale that in June, he wrote a measured letter to Rep. C.W. Bill Young, R-Fla., who chairs the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee.

"I feel myself and my soldiers are being put into unnecessary positions where harm and danger are imminent," Sitton wrote in an e-mail. "There is no endstate or purpose for ...

Well, They're ALL "Goyim (Dogs)" To
GLOBAL-ZIONIST-"JEWS" !

"SIXTEEN U.S. INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES, THE PENTAGON, AND
U.S. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA TELL ISRAEL 'NO !'

Israel's Netanyahu And The Jewish Neocons In America Vow
Revenge

Hell Hath No Fury Like A Zionist Jew Scorned. O.K. That's Not
Quite The Way The Famous Author, William Congreve (The
Mourning Bride, 1697), Put It. But It's Still Accurate
Observation. The Arrogant Jews In Israel And America Are So
Used To Getting Their Way That When, Finally, They Are
Refused And Told 'No !', They Go Absolutely Wild In Anger And
Disbelief.

Well, It Finally Happened...Again. The Last Time These Jackals
From Hell Were Told 'No' Was In 1963, When President John F.
Kennedy Informed Israel's Puffed-Up Bufoon Of A Prime
Minister, David Ben Gurion That, 'No ! The United States Will
Not Allow Israel To Have Nuclear Bombs.' That Refusal Ended
Rather Badly For The Courageous U.S. Chief Executive. The
Jews' Mossad, Working In League With Reprobate Vice
President Lyndon Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover's FBI, And Other
Traitorous Killers, Splattered JFK's Head And Brain With The
Crack Of Snipers' Rifles...In...Dallas, Texas..."--TEXE MARRS !

We have no purpose in being there at all. As to stupid handling, you forgot to mention Obama's continuing participation in the war, and increased effort, since Bush left office.

I have serious doubts about any politician's judgments when it comes to wars, Charlie Wilson's War about Afghanistan shows America's good-hearted, but wrong-headed approach to this region. We ended up helping an ally who was worse than the enemy. They never seemed to realize the Inadequacy of Islam. We helped with the training of Bin Ladin and his henchmen. No, we somewhat let out a evil genie out of the bottle on that one.
Winston Churchill wrote:
Tribe wars with tribe. Every man's hand is against the other and all are against the stranger ... the state of continual tumult has produced a habit of mind which holds life cheap and embarks on war with careless levity....
excerpt from, Churchill: An Unlikely Adviser in the Afghan Conflict.

It's a conflict that was handled stupidly by Baby Bush, and I don't know if a decent outcome can be had or not, considering Muhammadans.
