Coincidence, or did they know something that we didn't, and someone wanted it to stay that way?

Check it out on the major news services, BBC, CNN etc are full of it. Not the same crew but from the same unit that whacked OBL. Apparently a CH47 Chinook shot down by an RPG7. Makes me wonder what the fuk they were doing driving a big fat transport helo into a hot LZ, but then what the hell do I know? I'm not US Military.

The money we have wasted on this fools errand is nothing compared to the loss of life.
Bin Laden is dead, it's time our troops came home.

I want to trust the country's leadership, I really do, but I don't think we belong in Afghanistan - I never did. I am sorry to say it, and fear that so many have sacrificed in vain, for nothing.

I am with the earlier comment though: what the fk were they doing in a hot zone in a flying elephant? Where did planning go wrong on this one?

I agree. We should only have a war where we are welcome!

I thought we were changing the regime and propping up our puppet g'ment. We are not at war with the Afghan people.
Why do you think we're there, to ease your paranoia?

Why do you think we there, to stroke your paranoia?
Candidate Obama asked that question about Iraq and answered it as President Obama by pulling out of Iraq on Rumsfeld's time table.

Candidate Obama claimed that Afghanistan was the good war but was poorly fought due to the focus on Iraq. President Obama expanded the war in Afghanistan as he closed-out the war in Iraq.

President Obama started a new war in Libya without prior congressional approval.

Deal with it.
