    Are you sure about that? He talks the talk but at the end of the day he's still an invading force.

    Obama Says No U.S. Troop Drawdown in Afghanistan Before 2016

    It's a response both to growing threats from Islamic militants in the region and an improved relationship with Afghan leaders.

    (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama retreated from plans to slash U.S. forces in Afghanistan by the end of 2015, a response both to growing threats from Islamic militants in the region and an improved relationship with the country’s leaders.

    About 9,800 military personnel will remain in Afghanistan through this year. Obama said he’ll decide later whether to further revise a timetable that once called for the U.S. to have just 5,500 troops in the country by the end of December.

    While maintaining a promise to withdraw all but 1,000 U.S. personnel by the end of his presidency, Obama’s agreement with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at a White House meeting Tuesday reflects warming relations between leaders of the two countries. Ghani, who thanked America taxpayers for their support at a news conference with Obama, had urged the president to reconsider his timetable for an Afghanistan drawdown.

    “America’s combat mission in Afghanistan may be over but our commitment to the Afghanistan people, that will endure.”

    President Barack Obama

    Don't get your feathers ruffled Harry I think Bush was just as bad as you do but can see that Obama is definitely not the savior. More like same same but different.

    Bush's civilian hit list is probably larger than Obama's but finding solid honest #'s is difficult.
    I'm not saying it was Aliens, but it was Aliens!

    Is there a Russian-Ukrainian community ?

    They did get off'ed too, you know

    Goes without saying though that it doesn't count as much as the Holocaust, cause they are just slaves

    When you have to go to the Hitler comparison, especially with only a "maybe justified...", you have lost. The sign of someone who has lost before he got started.

    He didn't. It's how he introduces the subject in Thailand, 1.21 into the video.

    Didn't realize I was in a competition. Just pointing out that all leaders are killers a lot depends on who writes the history books.

    Historic content is always distorted featuring the benevolence of the good guys.

    Wonder how this would have raised an eyebrow.(from khao dot )






    The Israeli ambassador in Thailand has criticized a Facebook post written by a member of the Thai royal bloodline that praised Adolf Hitler as an exemplary statesman and described the Holocaust as "propaganda."


    Mom Luang Rungkhun Kittiyakara, 46, published a lengthy post on 20 April 2015 – the 126th anniversary of Hitler's birthday – alleging that the German dictator and his Nazi Party were falsely cast as evil for their attempt to "rescue" Germany's economy from the financial grip of "Zionist capitalists."

    "Hitler led his folk and nation back to glory, and reclaimed sovereignty, freedom, and liberation from being indebted to and slaves of an evil capitalist regime," Rungkhun wrote. "And what led to destruction of everything he built? The fact that he managed to find a way to rescue his nation from slavery? Because he showed the world that he could build a better future without the Zionist capitalist regime? Those are the truths. He was the hero of his people. He is the father of Germany. His people loved him, and he loved his people."

    He ended the post with "Heil Hitler."

    In a long postscript, Rungkhun went on to accuse Western governments and "Zionists" of fabricating the Holocaust, an extensively documented state-sponsored effort to exterminate Jewish people and other marginalized groups.

    "The Holocaust, or the genocide, is a lie that never took place," Rungkhun wrote. "The story about the Holocaust is nothing more than deceptive propaganda."

    The post has been widely shared on social media, with many users expressing agreement.

    Rungkhun is a distant member of the Thai Royal Family. He has the same surname as the Queen's maiden family name, and he holds the royal title of mom luang.

    A self-described "patriot," Rungkhun is a prominent member of Thailand’s elite social circles. He came into the public eye in 2014 when he led a campaign urging the military government to nationalize the energy industry and bar foreign petroleum companies from operating in Thailand.

    In an email statement to Khaosod English today, Israeli ambassador Simon Roded said it was a "pity" that "a well-educated person with better opportunity than others to obtain reliable information lacks common sense to differentiate facts from propaganda. It is always regrettable when that person needs only to do a simple research on historic events of which have been prominently proven in writing, material evidence as well as living witnesses, but fails to do so."

    Roded continued, "And it would be most unfortunate if the motive behind this revolting post came from the need of a person who wants only to draw attention to himself, by expressing distorting facts on such a well-known and well documented atrocities. This post indeed shows the anti-Semitic sentiments and ignorance of the writer. It is very shameful and the writer is a disgrace to his country."

    The Thai version of the statement was also posted on a Facebook page run by the Israeli Embassy in Bangkok.

    The Israeli Embassy in Thailand has previously condemned public praise of Hitler and the Nazi Party in Thailand, where symbols related to the Third Reich are often used as fashionable decoration.

    In July 2013, a group of students at the prestigious Chulalongkorn University painted Hitler in a mural for new graduates to take pictures with on graduation day.

    Last year, the Israeli ambassador condemned a scene in a state-produced film that showed school children applauding a painting of Hitler.

    So because I compare the death tolls of Obama and Hitler without the filters of patriotism it calls my character into question? Hitler was a savior to the Germans until they realized how bad he was at which point it was too late. Obama is a savior to many Americans. Why I don't know.

    Perhaps character is the wrong word. Your equation of Obama to Hitler, like most comparisons to Hitler, is so far off the mark as to mark your position desperate. Nice big pictures like that work for an attention seeking troll.

    Seeing how I joined in 2007 and have a .47 post count per day I doubt I am a troll but I could be wrong.

    Usually don't have much to say. Like to read some of the wonderful posts on the Door of Teak though.

    I gotcha beat on the board, but it's all a lot of nonsense anyway. Post counts do not exempt you from being a troll; it's the content that counts.

    So, how many Americans has Obama, and the Democratic Party, rounded up and murdered since he took office?

    The comparison would be laughable - if we weren't talking about genocide.
