leave a comment »

The last day in another month at war. The U.S. death counts keep going up with Gen. McChrystal’s restricted rules of engagement and the VIETNAM PLAN FOR AFGHANISTAN. No more troops until restricted rules of engagement are lifted. Links to various stories from around the GWOT:

1.)  US Marines in Helmand, Afghanistan:

From the story:

And on the frontline the conditions remain the same. Last month an American commander criticised the British for their “standards of personal hygiene” in the field, apparently oblivious to the fact that re-supplying frontline bases is a deeply treacherous task and vital essentials such as ammunition and drinking water take precedence over anything but the most basic sanitisation.

2.) Terrorists make statements against the USA:

3.) Philippines suffering from typhoon damage; some U.S. aide noted below. I expect more US military help  to be forthcoming. Link:

From the story:

The United States has donated $100,000 and deployed a military helicopter and five rubber boats manned by about 20 American soldiers from the country’s south, where they have been providing counterterrorism training. The United Nations Children’s Fund and the World Food Program have also provided food and other aid.

4.) Canadian general lashes out at Afghan tribal leaders who don’t tell who is putting landmines in the road which kill and maim Canadians:
