Evidence of Unrelenting Assaults on Operation Resolute Support Forces
January 27, 2015
At his 2015 State of the Union address, Obama declared that armed combat between U.S. and rival forces in Afghanistan was now over for the first time since 2001.
Convincing realities on the battlefield before and after Obama’s statement are distinctly at odds with the president’s remarkable announcement.
Interestingly enough, combat missions of more than one type have been ordered since the beginning of the month.
Considering drone assaults alone, a minimum of seven from launch and recover bases in Creech, Nevada and elsewhere have been ordered. Over 33 fatalities were counted after these long-distance reinforcement operations concluded.
Likewise, none of the Operation Resolute Support troops stationed in Afghanistan have been disarmed and all 13,000 plus are under orders to return fire.
Moreover, when coalition forces were ordered to try to fight back an enemy offensive at Paktika on January 2, at least 20 people died. Later in the month, other combat operations involving coalition forces killed at least 30 people in Helmand, Kandahar, Kapisa and Kunduz.
So too, Marine Special Forces, Navy SEAL and other elite forces are routinely ordered to keep their operations secret and, as with Iraq, have never officially been relieved of their assignments.
In addition, after U.S. officials advertised the withdrawal of the last regular marine, military commanders decided to train more marines in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina for a new deployment to Afghanistan.
Plainly, the crooked and heavy-handed lies of Obama are not meant to empower citizens to be the political decision-makers and masters of the society.
