Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 3-27-13-Wed.

Another day at war for US troops in Afghanistan. Another day of US tax dollars being wasted on nation building projects in that country. While our troops still risk their lives, former Army General and CIA Director David Petraeus steps out of the shadows and says he is sorry for his affair. As I read the story I only can think that he should be sorry for his COIN (counterinsurgency) theory and nation building which resulted in so many American deaths and injuries in Iraq and then Afghanistan. He should live on his retirement alone, and be lucky he has it and is not at Ft. Leavenworth Brig. He should dedicate his life to helping the Iraq and Afghanistan troops injured due to his COIN policies and volunteer for no pay at Wounded Warrior Barracks, VA hospitals, and in homes where amputees and brain-damaged vets live with their families. He could spend any spare time repudiating his failed nation building theories. Links from around the GWOT:
