While Obama Brags About Ending The War In Afghanistan, This Letter From A Father Who Lost A Son In Battle Puts Things In Perspective
Obama has been congratulating himself on ending the war in Afghanistan. This 2012 letter from a father who lost a son in battle put things in perspective.
“Mr. Barrack Hussein Obama,
I am deeply saddened that you are the President of the United States. You sir are an embarrassment to the Oval Office. My son, as well as most Marines I know, despise you and your lack of representation for our military.
Your ridiculous rules of engagement have caused the massive amount of casualties on your watch in Afghanistan. While we watch your media pander to your administration and clearly sweep things under the rug for you, I fully understand Marines die. You have tied their hands & feet!
I am thankful I did not serve under a Comm. in Chief such as you. I am sickened that my son had to. I wonder… I doubt that you will see this, I hope you do though!”
The letter highlights how Obama's "rules of engagement" have weakened the military and cost lives. War is a horrible thing. But if you are going to fight a war you can leave your gloves on while your enemy is fighting to win. In this war that has lasted over 13 years a staggering 74% of casualties have happened under Obama. The Taliban know full well the self-imposed limits of the military and have used them to their advantage. One can fully understand the anger of this father who lost his son.
