80 Dead As ISIS Attacks Shia Protest March in Kabul, Afghanistan

IS Attack on Afghan Protest Kills at Least 80, Wounds 231 - ABC News

Can we have a round of suggestions on what Obama will say?

"Our hearts go out to..."

"Americans and the world stand with..."

"Our deepest sympathies..."


If these lines sound like cliches, it's because we've heard them so often, since attacks keep happening every goddamn day without end. Hallmark is going to have to create a new category of cards for Obama.

Bad things happen halfway around the world - the RW blames Obama. Nothing to see here.

It will be interesting to watch them still trying to blame Obama in 2 years. ODS will take awhile to clear up.

The country had a fine chance to secure a free and dynamic society. They certainly missed it.

The next time a Republican is in office I hope we can all arbitrarily blame him for every atrocity committed around the world. Can you explain specifically how this is Obama's fault? Things like this didn't happen under Bush, did they?

No one is blaming Obama. The OP is critisizing his feckless reaction.

So what would be the appropriate reaction? Another invasion?

Killing radicals, as many and as fast as you can kill them would be the appropriate reaction. Surely there are enough "moderate Muslims" to do that.

"Moderate Muslims" has nothing to do with Obama.

You know, BDS was rampant for at least 7 years, so you may have a point.

Germany no...but Afghanistan and Iraq...I feel we are responsible.

If trump wins will it all be his fault retroactively? what if clinton wins? So far bush was blamed for the stock market crash and the dot com bubble bursting before he even entered office. He was entirely blamed for the housing market for laws passed before him.

Obama was blamed for the 07 recession, even though the election was in 08 and he was not sworn in until 09. He was blamed for leaving iraq, even though the sofa was put in place by bush, and obama was bound to that agreement since the iraq govt refused to have reasonable terms.

Come 2017 trump or hillary will be blamed for isis, and syria, and libya, and iraq, well anything that happened under bush or obama.

I'm not blaming Bush here.

For all the liberals who have continued to blame things on Bush, I guarantee you that at least as many cons will be blaming Obama for years to come.

And just as many will blame hillary/trump before either steps into office.

Obama's supposed to be killing these guys off. How many ISIS jokers has Obama killed? ISIS scored 80.

Obungle (or Kerry) will probably say something to the effect of "This is further proof that ISIS is 'desperate'/'falling apart'"

Why is it that Leftists demand globalism but deny responsibility when things go wrong?

Why is it that Pacifists demand we bring home our "youthful treasure" but couldn't care less about the young innocent families in Afganistan who are being slaughtered?

Why do cowards apologize for things WE didn't do?

Why do communists want to destroy America?

They're so superior that they can't believe they did anything wrong. Ask them about Venezuala, they'll swear that socialism failed because someone didn't do it right.
