American troops are still at war in Afghanistan. Pray for peace and that the US troops can secure victory and come home long before the 2014 deadline to win. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) US troops train their Afghan “allies” with body armor on, guard up. I think the Ameircan taxpayer should be asking their elected officials to ask the military leadership of Afghanistan to have the Afghan troops we have trained the last 10+ years to come back to active duty and train their own troops. We need new US leadership with new ideas, at the political and military level. We need officers with a culture of victory they can instill in the troops they lead. We need new ideas and to drop the failed COIN nation building and focus on new strategies which lead to a quick victory. Just my opinion as a US taxpayer. Link:
