Wicked Commentary

WASHINGTON (AP) — “American and Afghan officials are expanding the range of explanations for a surge in “insider attacks” on U.S. troops, adding on Wednesday the theory that the burden of fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan combined with the summer heat may have prompted more Afghan soldiers and police to turn their guns on their American partners.

Whatever the underlying reasons, the attacks are taking a toll and raising questions about the risk of American and other coalition troops working side by side with Afghan troops as advisers, mentors and trainers. The close contact is an essential element of the U.S. strategy for putting the Afghans in the lead combat role as the U.S. prepares to pull out its last combat troops at the end of 2014.

The top commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan, Marine Gen. John R. Allen, said Thursday that while the reasons for the killings are not fully understood, the effect of Ramadan fasting is likely among the causes.

“The idea that they will fast during the day places great strain on them,” Allen said, adding that the stress may have been compounded by Ramadan falling during the heat of summer and the height of the fighting season. He acknowledged that hunger and heat are not the primary causes for the killings, but it is among many “different and complex reasons for why we think this may have increased” lately.

He also cited Taliban infiltration of Afghan security forces and personal Afghan grievances against U.S. troops, who Afghans have in some cases accused of being brutish and insensitive to local culture and customs.”

Really,  General John Allen!?  So now we make “excuses” for Afghan forces killing our soldiers.  All of this “empathy” for the enemies while our soldiers get no reprieve from anything. They can’t even have Bibles and crosses on their chapels. At this point I’m not sure our troops are even allowed to say prayers anymore so “frightened” the generals are of  “upsetting the Muslims.”

Is any one as sick of this as I am?  What next?  The Afghan soldiers had a bad hair day so they shot down another helicopter of our Navy Seals or other special ops personnel? 

Or their latest internet buy of a porno flick didn’t show up on time so they decided to shoot up some of our soldiers? 

This is ridiculous giving these Afghan troops any excuses whatsoever for outright murder.  And what the hell is wrong with our generals?  They sure don’t deserve the respect of a General Patton, Eisenhower, Omar Bradley or a MacArthur. 

It seems all we have are a bunch of wimpy, scared generals.  So what are they worth then?  Get the hell out of Afghanistan and make no more excuses for these barbarians.  How about getting our noses out of their business and leave them to killing one another. That’s all these tribal people know anyway. 

I have a sneaky suspicion these orders to make excuses for these barbaric Muslims come from the top, the White House.  Who else do we know who goes around apologizing for America?

  1. What the..blank.. is this!? Another PC Liberal General!? I wonder if he sits down to Tea with our enemies? Yeah, bend over and kiss their feet General! Show them how tough you are. I’m sure your words will scare them to death!

      Yeah, I guess he’s a PC general like most seem to be. I’ve never seen such a bunch of whiners in my lifetime. Where are the real generals is what I wonder.

    O’Vomit owns Afghanistan. The rules of engagement forced by his administration on our troops is dangerous and getting our soldiers killed.

      He’s got that right! And so do you. We should pull all of our troops out of the Middle East period! Let the Barbarians kill one another like they’ve been doing for thousands of years!

      Get our troops back here to protect our own country instead of spending billions of dollars and using our troops to rebuild and stabilize these 3rd World countries!

    This pisses me off to no end! What a crock of shit he’s spewing! They’re killing our fine, brave warrior’s, because they’re hungry and hot? Well give em’ a damn hotdog and an umbrella instead of leaving our troops there for target practice! Perhaps this chicken shit, Obastard lapdog general (his “g” doesn’t deserve to be in caps) is a damn muzzie also. Once again one of our upper brass show they are NOT concerned with the best interest of our brave hero’s. Just bring them home safe and sound as quickly as possible.

    The poor kids are dying for absolutely no good reason. Those bunch of damn fanatics have been butchering people since their inception and nothing is going to change their damn mid-evil ways ever. Leave them alone to butcher each other and maybe we’ll get lucky and they’ll make themselves extinct! Just make it very clear to them, if they mess with Israel we will hammer there asses into dust without ever putting a single pair of boots on the ground.

        ‘awk; my only thought on giving them a hotdog is so many people choke to death on them every year! But you’re right; just let ’em frigging starve, if they choose not to eat. And good point about the heat bothering them. It was pretty damn hot here in KY for a while and I sure in the hell didn’t want to go shoot anyone due to it. Well; maybe one person in particular hypothetically of course… 🙂

  5. I saw this in the newspaper this am. This is total BS. It’s always hot in Afghanistan, so he can’t blame the heat – it’s because our government is making it more dangerous for our troops. I want obama and his communist buddies be sent to Afghanistan on the front line without weapons – good target practice…

  6. Another good piece. Thanks Dave. This is like some reverse climate change theorizing. Because they fast and with all that heat, they are compelled to do x,y,z. Imagine what they could do if they get their hands on WMDs? Fast+heat+ weapons = kaboom. Hey Rahm Emanuel should try blaming the weather and heat wave for the shootings in Chicago. (and maybe they had too much salt or spices in their diet too.) And if they apply those theories there, then what about applying thatt to Iran. I.e. because the santions are hurting, and it must be hotter than hell, they cranked up their development to say … Mach 12. How’s that? (and I know starving polar bears must have something to do with it too)

    • Bull,

      You mention another myth that is one of my pet peeves. That is when these “global warming fools” screech about The Ice Is Melting! We’re Destroying The Polar Bears habitat and the Bears will starve to death!

      These idiotic A-Holes think that Polar Bears ‘live’ on the ice flows. The ice flows are just a convenient platform the bears use to hunt for seals. All the ice flows could melt and it wouldn’t effect the bears at all. They are long-distant swimmers and deep divers. they live and breed on the land and do a lot of their hunting on and around the shore.

      I think it’s just starting to dawn on folks that these generals are weak and too PC. The very fact that they are giving excuses for why our soldiers are being killed is a huge insult to them.
