US Casualty Rate In Afghanistan Under Obama Increases 500%, Yet No Antiwar Protests. Why?

| June 23, 2011

So where is Code Pink?

Remember all the Liberal antiwar protesters who camped out in front of Bush’s ranch in Crawford, TX? They stayed there for well over a year, made all the headlines, and demanded that our troops be brought home. Seemed like a worthy cause, right? So, now that the US death toll in Afghanistan has increased 500% under Obama, I have yet to hear one, single word of protest, not to mention our current illegal war in Libya. Seems like Code Pink was not antiwar war death, they were only anti-Bush.

Remember these people who dogged Bush's every waking moment? Not a peep out of them since Obama took over and raised the casualty rate by 500%

“The average monthly casualty rate for U.S. military forces serving in Afghanistan has increased 5-fold since President Barack Obama was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009.

1,540 U.S. troops have been killed in Afghanistan since Oct. 7, 2001, when U.S. forces began fighting in that country to oust the Taliban regime that had been harboring al Qaeda and to track down and capture or kill al Qaeda terrorists.

During the Bush presidency, which ended on Jan. 20, 2009 with the inauguration of President Obama, U.S. troops were present in Afghanistan for 87.4 months and suffered 570 casualties—a rate of 6.5 deaths per month.During the Obama presidency, through today, U.S. troops have been present in Afghanistan for 29.1 months and have suffered 970 casualties—a rate of 33.3 deaths per month.

The 970 U.S. casualties that have occurred while President Obama has been commander in chief equal 63 percent–or almost two-thirds—of all U.S. casualties that have taken place in the nearly-ten-year-long war.

889 of the 970 U.S. casualties in Afghanistan that have occurred during the Obama presidency—or about 92 percent—have been combat-related casualties. During Obama’s presidency, U.S. troops have given their lives in the service of their country in Afghanistan at an average rate of more than one per day.” source – CNS News

    No Surprise here, the left holds the biggest double standard prize in the history of this nation. Don’t confuse them with the facts, their minds are made up.

    Yes, because there was fewer US troops in Afghanistan while Bush era, than Obama era. I hate people who just mention about some parts of the story, but ignore the whole story. My question is do you calculate how many US died in Iraq while in Bush era and while in Obama era. You can not lie to people easily.

  3. Myra says:

    If I remember right, Code Pink referred to a protest to bring American troops home from Iraq, not from Afghanistan. If I remember right, American was asked to send troops into Afghanistan and complied. If I remember right, American voters complained when troops that were needed in Afghanistan were sent in to Iraq instead. The protest to bring our American soldiers home has not slowed, nor has it stopped no matter what your news article claims

  4. RicoRaynn says:

    The point isn’t just the numbers of deaths. Liberal groups complained about both wars when Bush running things. Now that Obama is in the White House the uproar has died down quiet a bit. The reason, Obama and the dems are very good at PR. They still don’t listen any better the republicans, they’re just better at keeping the populace entertained. The whole party system is broken anyway. I wonder what Lincoln, Washington, and Roosevelt would say if they could see the politicians running America today.

  5. LilDZmom says:

    Obama is such a hoodwink…he is only bring home the Men the he sent over there….so he is doing nothing but running in circles!!!!

  6. Frd Johnson says:

    Thawngo is either one of those liberals you were talking about, or a professional spin doctor… If there are way MORE troops in Afghanistan now under Obama, wouldn’t it be logically expected that there would be MORE anti-war protests to bring them home? That was kind of the point of this article, but you either missed it, or thought a little spin doctoring to the choir would actually be effective.

  7. only one way, only one truth only one Jesus SON of the living God, creator of heaven and earth.
    This is just another way to be accepted and tolerant, it is not going to be totally accepted, it is deceitful and leaves out so much truth.It will just confuse people and scare them away from any faith.

    Typical liberal media bias! When Bush was president the mainstream media had 24×7 continuous coverage (usually negative) on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since Obama has been president there is barely a peep! And when Bush left office we had turned the tide and were winning in Iraq, thanks to his Surge which Obama voted against, and Afghanistan was stable. Since Obama has been in power the Taliban have regrouped and are stronger than ever with fresh recruits from Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, and lots of weapons and money from Iran. Also Bush got Congressional approval for both wars, but Obama has us involved in a 3rd illegal war in Libya. IMPEACH OBAMA NOW!

  9. I have learned result-oriented things from a blog post. One other thing to I have noticed is that typically, FSBO sellers may reject an individual. Remember, they would prefer never to use your companies. But if a person maintain a gentle, professional partnership, offering guide and keeping contact for around four to five weeks, you will usually be capable to win an interview. From there, a house listing follows. Cheers

    If these “liberals” are anything like me, then the reason there is no protest is because the war in Afghanistan actually has a purpose. The attacks on September 11 were from terrorists in Afghanistan. Bush/Cheney knew this and sent troops to Afghanistan, then sent more troops to Iraq because they were “a threat” (not true – no WMDs, no connection to September 11/harboring terrorists, as he claimed). America trusted the oval office for the attack on Iraq because they figured there was a reason for it (and that the White House had intelligence backing up these reasons). This was not the case and people were angry at the needless war.
