Slain Marine Had Been Forced to Apologize to Enemy Within

Why continue to waste lives and money in Afghanistan? If we aren’t fighting to win, we may as well pack it in immediately, as the story of Greg Buckley makes obvious:

Deployed to a volatile outpost in southern Afghanistan where U.S. Marines routinely face a mix of skirmishes and hidden explosives, Greg Buckley Jr. sensed that an attack was imminent.

And he knew that it would come from within.

The 21-year-old Marine was posted to Garmsir in Helmand Province, where he was training local security forces as part of NATO’s planned withdrawal in 2014.

One Afghan trainee spent hours on end during nighttime guard duty telling him over and over again, “We don’t want you here. We don’t need you here,” until Buckley finally confronted him. He was of course forced to apologize to the openly anti-American Afghan, who refused to shake his hand.

Buckley was so sure that an Afghan trainee would kill him that he told his family in advance he would not be coming home. Sure enough, he was gunned down in an insider attack two days before he was scheduled to leave Afghanistan.

Apparently it is not politically convenient for Obama to get our people out of that hellhole immediately. Yet there is no plan for anything that could be construed as victory. Under Obama, Afghanistan has degenerated into an unwinnable exercise in humiliation. It may be doing more to destroy morale than his campaign to homosexualize the military.

It isn’t only overseas that we are falling prey to an enemy within.

Lance Corporal Greg Buckley Jr., RIP.

On a tip from Ummah Gummah.

    The Defense Department’s answer to the rash of Afghans killing American soldiers is to send our soldiers to “Muslim Sensitivity Training”. Such BULLCRAP! This administration will never unfetter our soldiers in order to let them win – so it’s time to bring them home. At this point, they’re dying for nothing.

    Oh, and WHERE is the mainstream media with the daily reports of the number of soldiers killed under THIS president? Silent as usual…..

  2. Jodie says:

    The frightening thing is that the biggest “enemy from within” is Obama. He loves Islam and hates America and he is the Commander in Chief. Yikes!

  3. CT says:

    God Bless LCpl. Greg Buckley Jr., he and every other member of our armed forces are worth more than the incompetent petulant punk POTUS.

    The Obamination has to go. VOTE!

    In order to have enough bodies to fill the Afghan military and police it’s a given that they would have to recruit many who have been propagandised since the Russian debacle to hate all Westerners as ‘invaders’. Their imams beat that drum every Friday until there is no other concept.

    Heck, 90% of the Afghans don’t even subscribe to a ‘Afghanistan as a country’ concept. They are all tribal except for the city folks and even there, there’s a tribal loyalty issue.

    I had high hopes for this campaign, but it is obvious that these sand savages do not know or want freedom, merely to be butt slaves to their seventh century death cult. Fook ’em. Time to come home. This HAS turned into Viet Nam. Thanks Obama for getting more than a thousand of our military folks killed off for nothing.

    This makes me sick. F#cking progressives think they can mold and shape human nature. Sensitivity training my a$$. The only thing these pork humping islamists understand is violence. Give it to them. Obama OUT!!!
    Let’s put an American in the White House.

    R.I.P. Greg Buckley Jr.

    Listened to his father tell this story on Laura Ingraham’s show yesterday. It was heartbreaking.

    The DOD has been turned into a mess. Thanks Leon Panetta and BHO.

    Get out of Afghanistan now! But before we leave, destroy the opium fields and poison the soil so that nothing will grow for decades. That’s the right thing to do.

  9. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    This is called nation building
    It did not work under Bush, and it is not working under the Lightworker, and it will not work under Romney.

    And make sure they don’t arrive on Western shores as “refugees”…

    Never forget that the Obama Regime sympathizes with the COWARDLY islamic TERRORIST Nidal Hasan who murdered 13 of our UNARMED Best and Bravest in Fort Hood, Texas.

    Holder also worked for the lawfirm acting on behalf of the al quaeda GITMO TERRORISTS scooped up from the battle fields.

    Better shoot than take captives, these days.. or you or one of your brothers will end up facing the same enemy again..


  14. Buffalobob says:

    Have you noticed that the MSM, especially MSNBC Mr. maddow doesn’t mention the body count anymore? Why is that?

  15. Ummah Gummah says:


    Yeah, same on Pablum BS.


  16. boB says:

    Is it something that the last line of this story on CNN is
    “NATO admits killing civilians in Afghan strike”?

    One poignant song says more about the Muslim invasion of Britain than all the current media combined.

    When an increased demographic gives Bedouin beheaders the majority vote then England is doomed – there will be no second Crusades.

    America is facing this new creeping Sharia and with folded hands and closed lips we too will have our fulcrum point.

    First however, we have to deal with entitlements and creeping Marxist-progressive government ideology which has spawned useless generations of toothless, slothful, ignorant individuals – like our cell phone screamer – who live the consummate life of a blathering thankless leech.

    Black Liberation Theology – hateful dumb-down social engineering – is steadily transforming black America into nasty dark bloodsuckers, and they have certainly found their swampland-Messiah in Obama.

    Either the traditional black Christian Church gets its act together fast and preaches the real Messiah, and the dangers of dependence, or the leech demographic will prevail, and like England, America will be doomed.

  18. Alphamail says:

    Should read…”like the cell phone screamer in ‘A supporter makes the case for Obama’ thread…”

    “boB says:September 27, 2012 at 11:34 am”

    GUERILLAS are “civilians”. Do you know the diffrence between “guerillas” and “non-combatants”?

    Also, did you complain when MUSLIMS killed NON-COMBATANTS? How about when they killed their own CHILDREN?

    Doesn’t the military take an oath to protect our constitution against all enemies, foreign AND domestic?

    Now would be the time to start…

    I don’t see any generals resigning over this, nor do I see much public anger over it. These things are now acceptable, apparently.

    The generals are despicable. It is their duty to look after their men.

    I hope the dumb-ass officer who made the late GREAT HEROIC Lance Corporal GREG BUCKLEY apologize to his murderer, is experiencing severe PTSD with crushing depression and chronic thoughts of suicide.

    Alphamail says: …the cell phone screamer. Imagine if you will, a fantasy!! That you(an officer of the law), is given new directives from President Romney, actually it was V.P. Paul Ryan who came up with the new directive!!. That you have to go and inform the cellphone screamer that she has been cut off of ALL PUBLIC ASSISTANCE due to the fact that she is able bodied!!Her reaction would be “Oh hellz no I aint been, Im gittin my lawya!!” To which your reaction would be “Yes, yes you have been, and you also have to GET A JOB TOO”!!! And if you chose not to, then you will be put in prison because you are not being a productive citizen,not helping to get your country back on the right track, you are being a leeech. So even though we will still have to pay for your “up-keep”, at least now we won’t have to listen to you crow/gloat about it in public, without shame or embarrassment for how you are dragging your country down.!!
    (Sorry, it was a bit “ramblingly”!!)
