Saturday is here and Americans can enjoy springtime recreation, but for our troops in Afghanistan it is just time for the Afghans to harvest the poppy and marijuana crop, then back to fighting. God bless US troops. Links from around the GWOT:

1.)  Helmand Province: 2012-another fighting season begins after the harvest of poppy, which funds the fighting. President Obama has signed on for 3 more years of fighting: 2012, 2013, and 2014, followed by 10 years of US taxpayer money going into Afghanistan. We need that money at home to tend to our wounded troops. Link:
