Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 5-31-13-Fri.

The last day of another month at war in Afghanistan for American troops. God bless them.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) While the US troops draw down in Afghanistan, they turn to eating the MRE’s they have there for meals. I would say the officers up to the generals need to eat the MRE’s too.

Some vets told me, “Tough! Eat them and don’t complain!”

In fact, I have ordered MRE’s for years, see the links at #2-3 details. US troops in Afghanistan eating MRE’s: “The Drawdown Diet: Marines Steamed by Loss of Hot Meal at Afghanistan Base”.

I say better than eating Afghan food such as goat, and drinking tea as shuras, which expose US troops to parasites such as worms and diseases such as brucellosis, which is one of nine illnesses named “presumptive” for Iraq and Afghanistan vets, or being exposed to hepatitis from unsanitary food served to US troops by Afghans as shuras and “Key Leader Engagements”, etc. Link:

2.) Major Surplus & Survival: Meals Ready to Eat (MRE’s). These are “FRESH”, not outdated “surplus”, so don’t let the title fool you! This is a set of MRE’s, “The Basic”, three cases for $150.00:

3.) Another link to MRE’s from Major Surplus & Survival. Great for camping, emergencies (such as when the power is out, snowed in, etc.), and if you or your children plan on entering the military, great to order and get used to for when you sign up. Deluxe “Complete MRE”, one case  Major Surplus price $69.95 (regular price $99.95) Link:
