Since the start and now closure of the Iraq war and soon to follow Afghanistan—the dumbing of the rules of engagement by liberal lawyers with complete support from their corrupt cohorts in government are the sole responsible parties for the deaths of thousands of U.S. troops.

Under Obama the new “rules of engagement” effectively make them sitting ducks with their hands tied. Since taking office and handing the Department of Defense, Pentagon and corrupt liberal lawyers his new rules, our casualties have increased 500 percent.

Destructive rules of engagement as such have come at the detriment of U.S. troops as a political tool. This is nothing new for those who continue their Californication of the Armed Forces. This will continue to be a steadily growing tumor, infecting the very foundation of honorable men and women who serve.

The main reason America seemed to have stumbled in Vietnam was the integration of liberal policies regarding rules of engagement. This is business as usual for liberal lawyers who always come to the defense of criminals over the rights of victims.

No matter how many time this subject has come up and more filled body containers are shipped to Delaware, The Progressives ignore what they have done to those who have sworn to serve and protect us. Now why is that? Is it Ideological or just plain political?

You know what the best part of being a liberal thinker is? At least we can think. We don't need Joe Blow from the internets to do it for us.

Gone up 500%?

Well lets do some math kiddos
For Afghanistan from 2001-2008: 630
For Afghanistan From 2009-2013: 1613
A 500% increase would be: 3150

Also keep in mind that Obama more than doubled US troops levels in Afghanistan when he took office, and we started fighting a lot more over here. That alone would naturally lead to more deaths, plus you have the fact that our enemy in Afghanistan learned a lot from our enemies in Iraq. The IED for example was a product of the Iraq war, not the Afghan war, but it moved over there as people learned from those fights in Iraq.

By virtue of leaving Iraq we were able to fight much harder in Afghanistan, which by the way if you're going to bring up troop deaths between Obama and Bush you shouldn't fail to leave out Iraq.

And oddly, it was conservatives who pushed hardest for more troops in Afghanistan. But it's all Obama's fault.
