As the Afghanistan war enters its 10th year on Thursday, President Obama awarded the nation's highest military honor today to a Green Beret who gave his life to save more than 20 U.S. and Afghan comrades.

The Medal of Honor went to the parents of Army Staff Sgt. Robert Miller, 24, who drew enemy fire away from his squad after a 2008 ambush by the Taliban in northwest Afghanistan.

During a somber ceremony at the White House, Obama said Miller embodies the dangerous yet often secretive work of the Special Forces.

"Few Americans ever see their service," Obama said. "All Americans are safer because of it."



Oh, never mind, what was I thinking....

1. I don't accept that or believe it....Nothing that the American military is doing in Afghanistan makes us any safer or improves our lives in any way. There is zero positive justification for the wars against either Iraq or Afghanistan.

Obama man, Obama man
Doing the things an Obama can
Where's he born? It's not important
Obama man

Is he a habib, or is he a red?
When he gives a speech does he know what he said?
Or does the speech give him instead?
Nobody knows, Obama man

Protester man, Protester man
Protester man hates Obama man
If there is a war, Protester wins
Protester man

Politician man, politician man
All the taxes go to politician man
Usually kind to wall street man
Politician man

He gives a speech from a teleprompter stand,
A podium stand and a grand stand
When he passes a Bill he's got a plan
Self-important man, politician man

Common man, common man
Totally ignored for a four year span
Unless of course he's gay or tan
common man

When losing freedoms does he get stressed?
Does having a job make him feel blessed?
Who gave the vote to common man?
Useless man, common man

Obama man, Obama man
Obama man hates common man
They have a election, Obama wins
Obama man

Oddly enough, I actually wrote that as a response to SR (to the tune of They Might Be Giants song "Particle Man"). The first thing that came to mind reading the OP was Obama v Anti-war protester, protester wins.The rest kind of wrote itself. But I'm starting to think maybe it deserves its own thread in the lounge. :D

Why do these people not understand that the war has been over since '04? We won the war. It's the occupation that wasn't going so well. Well, that turned around as well. And my question still stands: what benefit was there to keeping Saddam Hussein in power?

MoPaul and his asshole friends have no class what so ever.

I'm surprised that they didn't demand the MoH be given to terrorist scum instead of Sgt. Miller.
