Obama Orders 4 Times as Many Troops to Die as Bush!

By Tom Rhodes, 6/16/2012

Under Obama in Afganistan we ar sending our sons and daughters to die more than 4 times faster than under Bush.

-- Under Obama 1379 dead in afganistan over 3.5 years averaging about 400/yr

-- Under Bush 630 dead over 7.25 years averaging about 87/yr

US military fatalities in Afghanistan by year:
2001 -- 12
2002 -- 49
2003 -- 48
2004 -- 52
2005 -- 99
2006 -- 98
2007 -- 117
2008 -- 155
2009 -- 317
2010 -- 499
2011 -- 418
2012 -- 145
Total - 2009
From icasualties.org

Afghanistan is the war that Obama wanted and escalated. It was in 2008 that he argued that it was the central front in the war against Islamic terrorists. It was Obama's policy to add US troops to Afghanistan, and that escalation has been a total failure.
