More than 300 died in Afghanistan in 2009 alone:
– Afghanistan: more than 300 US soldiers killed this year (Telegraph):
The latest death pushed to the number of American soldiers killed in Afghanistan so far this year to 301, according to the icasualties.org website.
The number is nearly twice the 155 American soldiers killed in 2008, when total foreign troop deaths numbered 295 for the entire year.
I am repeating myself here, but those soldiers could still be alive …
Obama: ‘I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am President, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank.’
Lie and send a few hundred US soldiers to death, get the Nobel Peace Prize!!!
More lies here: Barack Obama Lies 7 Times In Under 2 Minutes!!!!!
