    For all the people who stood by and watched, I hope youknow that you died too. Because antime you are so cold to the point that you can't even feel your own pulse you are already dead. You are just a lifeless human being walking around without a sole. That is trully sad and you robtically show up to the church and stand once again to watch. How sad of a people we have become. Body after body we watch, the more we watch , the more we die to the spirit. They will be no escape for the watchers or their families because the inner self can only keep so much. Everyone will be praying for you across this country . Break the code of silence in order to save yourself. Derrion will always be with you until you do. May God have mercy on your soles.

    While these 8 brave and courageous soldiers were fighting to their deaths, do you even think Obama spent 8 minutes last night thinking about what he should do for the safety of our country and these soldiers? Do you?

    This is in regard to the attack in Afghanistan. Within a few sentences the soldiers were described as occcupying base camps, then as outposts. The first implies a major facility, such as Bagram Air Base, or at least a regional headquarters occupied by large numbers of soldiers. The second reflects small facility occupied by dozens of trooops, maybe two hundred maximum. It appears the latter is the case. Such an attack will occasionally get lucky and take a higher than normal toll but should not be treated as a major battle or used in isolation to make claims about the success ore failure of a policy. Please be more precise, I suggest some of your editors start attending local National Guard training sessions on a regular basis in order to get a better understanding of what you are talking about.
