Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) Sat. 4-30-11

leave a comment »

The Afghanistan war continues on, although it is really seeming to be more or a scandal than a war. The US troops are dying and being maimed, but COIN and restricted ROE rule, putting their lives at unnecessary risk it seems to me.

Today, Sgt. Linda Pierre was buried, look at this story, read it, then watch the video and look through the 39 photos. She was murdered, along with 5 other American soldiers, by an Afghan soldier. Before she was even buried, another incident of an Afghan service member killing U.S. troops occurred, this time, murdering 8 American Airmen. God bless our troops and may this never happen again, Afghan soldiers turning on U.S. troops. Sgt. Pierre represented the finest America has to offer, please remember her family in prayers, and let’s vow to support our troops and not needlessly endanger them: contact your elected officials. RIP Sgt. Pierre. Links from around the GWOT below:

1.) Funeral in Lehigh Acres, Florida today for Army Sgt. Linda Pierre, murdered in Afghanistan by Afghan soldier who also murdered 5 of her fellow soldiers. May she RIP. Pray for America, and pray for her family. Link:

The Department of Defense now has released the names of those killed by the Afghan soldier a few days ago, all Air Force personnel. Seven officers were murdered and one NCO, along with an American contractor. God bless our troops, and may they find leaders who have a new strategy that can lead to victory.

The Afghanistan situation for U.S. troops seems to be going downhill fast. Before even some of those murdered last week by an Afghan soldier are buried, such at Sgt. Linda Pierre, another Afghan soldier shoots innocent Americans on base, inside the wire, just like Sgt. Pierre and 5 others a week ago. This time 9 innocent American soldiers and a contractor are killed. The facts are still being sorted out. God bless our troops. Links from around the GWOT:

God bless American troops. May they win the war in Afghanistan soon and come home in victory. This year they find themselves at war yet another Easter. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Supply lines for US troops run through Pakistan before getting to them in Afghanistan. Protests in Pakistan kept the supply lines closed, but US officials say it will not hamper the war effort. Link:
