Two more American soldiers were recently killed by an Afghani wearing a local police uniform. Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai has accused the U.S. of colluding with Taliban terrorists.

We are spilling American blood on the sands of a nation that only wants what material goods and money we provide. The Afghans' historic enmity toward any intruders into their desert domain has been part of their culture for millennia.

President Barack Obama, get us the hell out of Afghanistan — now!
