Afghanistan: Two Dead [US Service members] In Camp Bastion Attack
Sky ^

Posted on 09/14/2012 3:11:28 PM PDT by Perdogg

Militants armed with rockets have attacked the main Allied military base in Afghanistan, leaving at least two people dead and a number of others hurt.

The perimeter of Camp Bastion was breached as it was hit by small arms fire and there was major damage to buildings, an aircraft hangar and several military jets.

The two soldiers killed are thought to have been US Marines.

This facility is often subject to indirect fire, but officials in Afghanistan say the damage that has resulted is far more severe than normal. The attack was launched in the US area of the base.

Wow. Things are spinning out of control.

I wonder if this is going to create a “rally ‘round the flag and president” effect.

Folks...

Camp Bastion is a British air base. Who's going to be deployed there? Why, Prince Harry. Who told the Islamonutjobs that he'd be there? The stupid liberal media.

More men will die because of this

No. Rally around the Flag, yes. But obama is to blame for this as much, if not more, than carter was to blame for iran. There will be no rally around obama.

Well would it make you rally around him?

The thing that rallied people with Bush after 9/11 is he actually saw the Hijackers for what they were terrorists
and he said as much. The current President we have thinks Islam is swell and don't cha know they are only mad about the movie Islam good Muslims good. I am not rallying around that ever Obama can go jump in the Lake for all I care.

I've been rallying around the Flag for the last half-century. I'll rally around a leader; not the traitorous Marxist maggot that presently occupies the WH!

The koran burning minister Jones needs to call his pal Dempsey and see if he’s willing to play war or bring the troops home. Political corrrectness just won’t cut it.

I am sick and tired of our people dying in a meaningless war that this administration has no intent to win. They are wasting our troop’s lives just to play at something they know nothing about or could care less about. We are trying to work with a country that does not care for us, whose largest industry is to grow and import drugs into our country. These people are not worth ONE soldier, sailor, airman or Marine in my opinion. It is time to call it off and bring our people home and let them go back to killing each other as they have for thousands of years. They don’t care about us and never will. They hate our people and our nation. I am tired of it. Smells like Nam again to me. And before anyone spouts off about Nam, I was there, so I know.

Camp Bastion is a huge base. Enemy forces breached the perimeter.

Two more notches on obama’s rifle stock. He is responsible for the death of every American murdered at the hands of satan’s army.

Are you kidding? Most of us here wouldn’t piss on Obama if he were on fire.

I watched the local Fox station for an hour this morning just to see what is being covered and not a word. Not a single word.
Covering for HUSSEIN! Always.
It's up to us to get the truth out. I'm thinking flyers, signs, whatever it takes to tell the public about the lies of omission.
