High ranking officer(s) may have been killed during that Afghan attack.

FoxNews reports that one may have been a general, but FoxNews gave no name.

I wonder if there were not coordinated world wide attacks planned to coincide with Hamas's planned invasion of Israel in September? Maybe these have moved up due to Israel's discovery of the tunnel networks?

Our November elections, potentially, could have serious consequences for the current administration.

Why do we continue to tolerate Islam.

They want to kill us all.

There is no peace with Islam.

Eliminate Islam.

Well in another thousand years or so they'll (maybe???) become some sort of civilized, but of course it'll be way, way too late for us.

With the trash in the White Hut and in congress, we're in a *nine line bind* on a bunch of fronts.

Workplace violence. The war is over. We lost. Obama cheered "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED".

If they built on the achievements of those they conquered, then maybe. But all I have seen them do is destroy, then plant themselves on the ash heap.

In another thousand years they'll be the same.
