More unrest in the Mid-East and Muslim world, but in the meantime, the Central Asia war in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan continues on. Innocent U.S. troops are dying and being injured, and for what? God bless them. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) An explanation from Diana West about how the countries are lining up, and who benefits from the unrest. Link:

U.S. troops face what is called the spring fighting season, when Taliban fighters come back into Afghanistan from their sanctuaries in ungoverned and lawless areas bordering Afghanistan. If the areas are lawless and ungoverened, it seems, as in Libya, the U.S. president should commence bombing to save Afghan civilians and innocent American troops from murder and carnage from the terrorists hiding there. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) U.S. Marines in Sangin, Afghanistan. Pray for them and contact your elected officials and share this story with them so they know what the Marines there now, and those coming to replace them face especially as we enter the spring fighting season. Link:

Another week and another war speech, this time on Libya last night by President Obama. God bless our troops in 3 wars now: Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya, plus around the world ready to defend American freedom.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Can the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives stop the funding of the rebels? The U.S. is out of money. I have also heard even US military officers in the press and at hearings say that Al Qaeda is part of the rebel force in Libya. Link:

While President Obama prepares to give a speech on the Libyan war he has not obligated us to, the war goes on in Afghanistan with the Taliban, and the US Marines preparing for the fighting season. The first story is from the Chinese press, but interesting to read their view of what they call the “Afghanistan Situation.” Links from around the GWOT:

1.)  “The Afghanistan Situation” – story and views from the Chinese press. Taliban and the U.S. Marines pray for the Afghanistan fighting season. Link:

Another Lenten season Sunday and Americans can go to church in peace. Meanwhile, our innocent American troops lose their lives and limbs in Afghanistan. Pray for an American victory so our troops can come home soon. This story at #1 is a must read, and describes the futility of war the way it is being run in Afghanistan by American generals. The Commander-in-Chief needs to review the situation, and either fight to win or bring the troops home NOW. America is broke and cannot afford this anymore. Lifetime medical care for the troops who survive, which they deserve, but they should not be losing limbs in the first place for Afghanistan. Let Afghans fight for Afghanistan. Stop the carnage and slaughter of innocent U.S. troops.

1.) Futility of war in Afghanistan, US troops lose legs:

God bless American troops fighting to secure victory in Afghanistan. May they come home victorious and soon. The hard hit 3/5 Dark Horse Marines need to be met by the Commander-in-Chief when they return, and given at least a Presidential Unit Citation. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Hard hit 3/5 Marines return home, President Obama should greet them:

The workweek ends for most Americans (those who have jobs) but our troops in Afghanistan must carry on as the Taliban’s spring fighting season kicks into high gear soon. God bless our American troops as they secure victory and our freedom and safety. In the meantime the war in Libya is being turned over to NATO, which also is running the Afghanistan battlefield. We will see how that turns out.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Pirates escape, Navy helo fire misses their boat and mother ship. US Navy still looking for mother ship and pirates in this attack. They need to take care of this ASAP so we don’t have any more innocent Americans murdered, as these pirates got away. Link:
