Who do those Afghans think they are--killing the troops that invaded and occupied their country? Okay, so we've killed thousands of innocent civilians both in conventional and predator-drone operations--what's that to get all bent out of shape about? You know what I think the real cause of their rage is? They hate us for our freedom. Yup, that's gotta be it.

You're correct, they hate us for our way of life, including freedoms. Such as the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, the freedom of the press, the freedom to choose our leaders. The troglodytes that live in these backward cesspools of misery and corruption hate anything and everything that is not them, and they often hate themselves as well. Sure, we are fighting in their country, but for decades we did nothing but offer aid, food, technology and the possibility of democracy and we were repaid with murder and hate.

But I suppose Paulus will wait until there are Jihadis on his street shooting the men and raping the women. Then he'll demand to know how our leaders could have let this happen. Another eye roll!

Suddenly, a murderous threat has intensified in Afghanistan: American servicemen are being killed there at an accelerating rate by Afghans who ostensibly are their allies.

These attacks have been dubbed "green-on-blue" incidents, an antisceptic and deliberately inoffensive way of describing the treachery of Muslim natives (designated by the Islamic color green) against our folks (the blue forces). So serious a threat are such murders "inside the wire" deemed to be that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army General Martin Dempsey, went to Afghanistan last week to assess what is being done to prevent them in the...
