God bless American troops serving in Afghanistan. Pray for their safety and to secure victory SOON so they can return home BEFORE the 2014 date set to win and come home. The sooner the better if you ask me. Meanwhile, another month at war in the books. Links from around the GWOT:

1.)  Verdict in death of British soldier in October 2009 at Camp Bastion. Another “unlawful killing”. I don’t see an arrest warrant being issued. There was a culture of complacency at Camp Bastion it says. Camp Bastion was there before the Marine base, Camp Leatherneck was built. Link:

Pray for American troops in Afghanistan. It would be great to achieve victory and leave that country, and take our US tax dollars with us, BEFORE the 2014 proposed end by the politicians. Let’s win the war and leave this summer and take our money with us!

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Afghan truckers face violence, growing more violent by the day:

The weekend begins and US troops still face dangerous days in Afghanistan. Pray for US troops as they continue on in this dangerous country. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Court Martial over American soldier’s suicide in Afghanistan:

The war continues in Afghanistan. God bless American troops. Corruption reigns there, our troops should come home immediately, and bring our money with them. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Bati Kot, Afghanistan: corruption as reported by reporter there: state-funded medications were being sold even though marked not for sale! Link:
