A ROCKET fired on a US airbase in Afghanistan has damaged the aircraft of America's top military officer and wounded two maintenance crew.
Two rockets fired by insurgents struck the vast Bagram airfield today, with one causing damage to the C-17 used by General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, who left the base using another plane, his spokesman Colonel Dave Lapan said.
Shrapnel from the rocket struck the door of the plane while it was parked on the runway, with two American maintenance crew suffering minor injuries in the attack, Lapan said.

I agree, no conspiracy here. This place is a war zone. We are The Enemy in hostile territory sticking our nose into a situation we don't belong in.
Too bad they missed the General. Next time, they should obtain a small tactical nuke and fry my American traitorous to the US Constitution er.. "countrymen" and I use the term very loosely..
Yep, I'm a true Red White and Blue American. I believe in going to war when our personal freedoms are threatened or our way of life as detailed in the Constitution is threatened, or this country is directly threatened from within. But if we are not fighting for those things but for some elite's agenda for a fascist government then I'll happily cheer for the other guy. We are wrong. We should be stopped. We being our corrupt government and it's military.
Do I care that tons of our boys will get killed? Hell NO. Did they get drafted? No. they enlisted. They choose to serve this corrupt military willingly. The USA hasn't been in a justified war since WWII everyone knows it.These ignorant kids just out of high school enlist and have no idea what they are doing, because they don't know the real history of the USA and other world events. Then after they enlist they get brainwashed by US Military training to become stone killers who obey orders without thinking or conscience. For what? A fascist corporate corrupt agenda that has nothing do do with defending this country or it's way of life. I can't feel sorry for them anymore, nuke em all. One day after this country falls apart and is again taken over by We The People, we'll rebuild it right.edit on 21-8-2012 by JohnPhoenix because: sp
