12 Special Ops Trapped Like Rats In Afghanistan

Here is basic military science 101
A cardinal sin is if you don’t use overwhelming force to get a job done
It is a rule that Obama refuses to in the war on terror want to follow
Makes his pledge to contain, degrade and destroy  the evil of terror ring hollow
Our special ops forces like the Seals or Delta Force are in a league of their own
But quality and skill can be trumped by overwhelming wanna be martyrs in a combat zone
Today a special ops soldier was killed and 12 are in a compound surrounded by the Taliban
Not sure how many but these jihadists are surging in many parts of Afghanistan
One can only pray the weather remains clear and the gunships and planes can continue flying
Or these brave dozen have a good chance of being wounded or worse dying
I doubt if our commander in chief to his military advisers did listen, chose not to hear
12 families may at Dover be soon shedding a lot of grieving tears
