NUGENT: I want a voodoo-vermin body count

Americans deserve to know what they accomplished for their lives and treasure

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

President Obama laid out a timetable for our troops to withdraw from Afghanistan, with 33,000 of our brave warriors to be out of there by next summer and all of them to be out by 2014.

The war in Afghanistan has cost the lives of more than 1,500 American troops, the wounding of thousands more warriors and almost a half-trillion dollars.

Support the Afghanistan war or not, Americans should demand to know specifically what we got for the lives and treasure.

Americans should be told how many voodoo terror maggots our military has killed in Afghanistan, how many terrorists the government estimates our military has wounded and maimed and how many it has captured and locked up.

We want to know how many buildings, caves and tents used to provide refuge for terror punks have been destroyed and how many of their vehicles have been flattened and goats killed.

Americans should be told that every time a voodoo terrorist does so much as pass gas, our intelligence apparatus can pick that up and coordinate a laser-guided smart bomb to land on his dinner plate.

We should demand to know how many tons of munitions and how many guns have been captured and destroyed.

But we are rarely told how many terror maggots our troops killed in a day. We are, however, told immediately each time an American hero warrior is killed in Afghanistan or Iraq.

Why is that? How come we are told only bad news?

We can go to to see how “every cent” of our tax dollars has been spent on reigniting the economy and how many jobs have been created. Why can’t we go to a website such as and see how many voodoo whack jobs our warriors have killed and wounded every day and how many in total we have caused to assume cave temperature and wounded?

I want to see a voodoo-vermin body-count digital board updated in real time much like the debt clock.

The real reason Americans aren’t told how many voodoo vermin our military have killed and wounded is that it would not be politically correct. The current crop of Fedzillacrats running America probably believe that those statistics would offend other terrorists and cause them to get even angrier at America. Good.

We should want to make other terrorists and those who support them filled with rage. We should want the enemy to hate us, call us the Great Satan. No, we can’t all just get along.

Angry enemies make mistakes, which makes them easier to identify and kill. Warheads on terrorist foreheads are beautiful things. Rats and vultures have to eat, too.

Attempting not to upset those terror vermin who hate us gives them more time to plan to kill Americans. Instead, we should have them constantly on the run and making tactical mistakes. We should use every tactic to smoke them out and kill them.

We must never forget that more than 1,500 Americans have given their lives in Afghanistan and thousands more have been wounded. Toss in a half-trillion dollars on top of those priceless lost and wounded lives, and this war has been terribly expensive in American blood and treasure.

When the dust settles in Afghanistan and it is turned back over to the Afghan people for a few minutes in 2014 before the voodoo vermin come out of their caves and take it back over, Americans should demand to know what we got for such an expensive price.
