With 496 casualties, 2010 was by far the deadliest year for U.S. troops fighting a war in Afghanistan that has now entered its tenth year, according to casualty reports issued by the Department of Defense and tracked in a comprehensive database of war casualties maintained by CNSNews.com.

There were 303 U.S. casualties in the Afghanistan war in 2009, making 2009 the second deadliest year of the war.

Almost 17 times as many U.S. troops were killed in the Afghanistan war in 2010 as were killed in 2002, the first full calendar year of the war. In the past year, U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan were killed at a rate of about one every 18 hours.



The remains of Pfc. Jacob A. Gassen return to the country he died defending on Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2010 at Dover Air Force Base, Del.

You can certainly thank the globalist puppet president Barack Hussein Obama for making the troops fight with one hand tied behind their backs i.e. not allowing shoot-to-kill in self-defense wherever possible.

Instead, Obama orders the troops not to shoot back, even if fired upon.

It just goes to show that Obama's allegiance is to his globalist overlords and not to the American people and not to the United States as a whole.

What do you think?

It really is sad, how closely this parallels Vietnam. Back then, we weren't allowed to cross the DMZ, and now, we aren't allowed to operate in Pakistan, where the insurgents regroup and recuperate. And just like Vietnam, we'll eventually get sick of bleeding men and money, supporting a corrupt government, and fighting a war that can't be won.

And in the end there will be a MCD and capitalism in the "victors" land. Funny how it all turned out.
