leave a comment »

Another week at war, for most Americans a short work week after the Labor Day holiday yesterday, but not for our troops in Afghanistan. May they be led to victory, and soon, with another 9-11 anniversary approaching, this time the eighth year since the attack on America.

God bless our US troops, lead them to victory, and may they come home to a peaceful America, having bravely done their duty to win the war in Afghanistan. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Germany defends calling in airstrike of Taliban hijacked gas tankers, were getting close to their compound, thought they could be used as suicide bombs, such as the Beirut bombing of the US Marines in the 80’s. Link:
