Another month down in the Global War on Terror, and the news on CNN and FOX was good for the war effort: another terrorist leader killed. This time it was in Yemen. See link at #1. God bless our troops and God bless the USA. Links from around the GWOT:

Another day in a war zone for U.S. troops who never know if a supposed ally will turn on them or if they will be pinned down and denied support. Pray for our troops. Gold Star Father John Bernard at his blog, “Let Them Fight or Bring them Home” has another excellent post, see link #1. Links from around the GWOT:

Please pray for our troops on the ground as they face extreme danger in Afghanistan, and lack full support of the commanders who are not on site and out on the patrols leading on point. Please read the story at link one and pass it on , including to your elected officials. Link:

1.) US Marines murdered when support was denied in Afghanistan. Contact your elected officials. The Marine mom, now a Gold Star Mother, of one of the Marines, and some others such as the widow of a fallen soldier are doing their best to the word out. Link:

The U.S. toils under restricted rules of engagement and the threat of Afghans turning on them, such as in the story at #1. God bless U.S. troops. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) A supposed Afghan ally turns on Americans and kills one. This must be stopped. Link:

The US military action in Afghanistan continues. God bless American troops on the ground under the COIN policy and restricted rules of engagement. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Diana West points out the absurd COIN theory American, and in this case British troops toil under. Link:

Pray for our innocent enlisted American troops as they are on the ground in violent places such as Sangin, Afghanistan. In this story even our military dogs are getting injured. Please pray for peace. And, contact your elected officials and inform them that we need a new military strategy and new officers with a culture of victory if we are to continue on the ground in Afghanistan. I suggested to my elected officials and President Obama that he as Commander-in-Chief should issue an emergency order immediately to clear out the  Pentagon of bunker officers and garrison generals and send them to Sangin, Afghanistan and other hot spots in that country to walk point and on foot patrols to have meet and greets with the Afghans, while sending ALL ENLISTED U.S. troops home for 6 months of relax and recuperation. This could commence immediately, including bunker officers and garrison generals at the Defense Language School in Monterey, Calif., Central Command in Tampa, etc., although they may miss a few tee times, they could run the war according to their tea drinking, goat eating, and COIN (counter-insurgency) nation building theories and see how it works out the next six months while our exhausted enlisted men rest and recuperate. Even the Taliban rested and recuperated in Pakistan before coming back and regrouping. The American bunker officers and garrison generals should run the foot patrols the next 6 months in Afghanistan and test their theories in forward locations: Pentagon-Forward, Central Command-Forward, and Defense Language School-Forward. We need to out fight and out think the Taliban. Give our enlisted men and women 6 months of rest and recuperation and let the bunker officers and garrison generals run the show on the ground.

1.)  American enlisted Marine and his dog injured in Sangin, Afghanistan-see notes above on what I think needs to be done:
