Another year at war in Afghanistan in the books for America. God bless America’s enlisted troops on the front lines in Afghanistan as we enter 2013. May they be blessed with new leadership and a new strategy to win the war swiftly and decisively as then did in the months after the 9-11-01 attacks.

After a quick victory in 2013, like with the First Gulf War, Desert Storm, may American troops come home quickly, and bring our money with us, long before the Dec. 31, 2014 deadline for victory.

The US is going off the financial cliff, we can no longer afford generals who are not able to present a strategy to win the war quickly. We don’t have the money for projects in Afghanistan, or for two more years there.

God bless American troops! May they come home from Afghanistan in early 2013!

Another Christmas Day at war for US troops in Afghanistan. May they soon be led by new leaders with a culture of victory they can instill in the troops they lead, and secure a quick victory under a new strategy, and return home to victory parades SOON. The current political and military leaders have them on a path to continue what they are doing, with the continued maiming and deaths of US troops, which is intolerable for two more years until Dec. 31, 2014.

The American troops should come home now and bring our money with them if there is no new strategy and winning generals brought in to lead them to a quick victory in the beginning weeks of 2013. God bless American troops. This should be their LAST Christmas at war in Afghanistan. It is immoral for them to be left there two more years, for Christmas 2013 and Christmas 2014 if new generals and a new strategy for victory is not brought in NOW to secure a quick victory. Short of this, bring the US troops home NOW, and our money with them.

God bless America’s enlisted troops. May US troops NEVER serve another Christmas in Afghanistan.
