The commander of NATO forces, Maj. Gen. James C. McConville, who commands troops in the volatile east near the Pakistani border, in eastern Afghanistan spent Christmas Eve visiting U.S. troops Tuesday at bases across the mountainous region to bring them holiday greetings and gifts (special Army coins to troops who’d completed three or more deployments) for a few unlucky soldiers. Whoopie!
He told troops that they were “bringing a gift to the Afghan people – you’ve given them an opportunity. Now it’s up to them to take it.”
“The soldiers chose to be here. Their families didn’t, and they’ll be waking up Christmas morning without their husbands, fathers, mothers or wives,” ~ a real U.S. General
Then he added:
“We can’t forget that the enemy’s not celebrating Christmas.”
No shit, Sherlock! Uh, the last I heard, they’re ah, Mooslims?
Before leaving (and just to make sure), this National Security Fellow at Harvard University. removed all doubt about his ignorance by thanking them and adding,
“a lot of Americans will wake up tomorrow and have a peaceful day, and that’s thanks to you.”
Damn! I didn’t know we were about to be attacked by Afghanistan too!
I wonder just what names and jokes the troops had to say about this moron after he left to return to his home in Kentucky? This guy is highly qualified for a top job at the Pentagon! Maybe in a couple of years, the Democrats can run him for a public office somewhere. Senator McConville. Maybe from Utah!
Remind me now. Just how many lives and wounded Americans has this war cost us?
