Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 7-30-13-Tue.

As the month winds down, US troops are another month near exiting, as they pack up and have bases in retrograde now. May they stay safe while exiting. In the meantime, American politicians and generals, often one and the same, try to extend the stay of American troops there. See the link at #1 for details.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Current American general in charge, wants US troops to stay in Afghanistan past 31 Dec. 2014. He must be out of the loop and not realize the US is broke and in sequester. The US taxpayer pays his salary, but can’t do both: pay his salary and the salary of Afghan troops, and for development in the US as we no longer have the funds. Afghanistan has vast mineral wealth and has natural resources they can sell, and China is already getting contracts for things such as a copper mine. Let Afghanistan pay their own expenses. Link:
