God bless America’s enlisted troops who have to serve under a leadership which does not lead from the front. See the story at link#1. Officers and military planners tell our enlisted troops to get closer to Afghans. I have an idea: Have the generals and other high ranking officers get close first. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) American soldiers are told by the top brass to get closer to Afghans. Let’s have the officers lead by example, they can go get close first and see how it works, out. Contact your elected officials. Link:

Another day at war, another day of treachery for boxed in US troops. God bless our enlisted troops sacrificing so much, their limbs, minds, and even their very lives.  May new leadership, with a new strategy that puts Americans first be brought in. Our troops deserve it. Please read the story at link #1 by Gold Star Father John Bernard whose son gave his life for us in Afghanistan & contact your elected officials.

1.) Gold Star Father John Bernard pens another excellent article in support of our troops. Read this story & contact your elected officials. Link:

Two more Americans were killed by an Afghan soldier or soldiers today. Please remember our troops in your prayers. Contact your elected officials: CNN reported two Friday’s ago that the cost for current operations, which does not include the lifetime care of injured, etc. is $2 billion dollars. That is two thousand million dollars! The cost in blood and treasure is too much. God bless American troops. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) British Royal Marines train for Afghanistan, they previously served in deadly Sangin. Like the American Marines they are now being told to, out of cultural sensitivity to the Afghans, stop farting and cussing. Link:

2.) American troops killed by Afghan forces. Meanwhile, the Taliban killed their fellow Afghans, they beheaded 17. Link:

3.) US troops punished for doing what they were ordered: burning enemy communication. This needs to be overturned, and only officers in charge punished, for the situation getting out, and not explaining that they were burning as ordered, enemy communication. The Koran was already defaced with their writing in it for enemy communications. Link:

Another Sunday at war for U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Pray for them, that they can secure victory soon and return home after winning the war. Pray for new military strategy and leadership with a culture of victory in which they can instill in American troops. Pray for our injured, and that there will be no more American deaths or injuries soon. God bless the USA. The US military has secured our freedom of religion, so we can go to the church of our choice today. God bless the US enlisted man. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) U.S. Army buried Islamic reasons for attacks and murders of US troops by Afghan forces. A thought provoking thought at “American Thinker”. Read this story and contact your elected officials who send our troops to war. Link:
