Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) Thanksgiving Thurs. 11-28-13
God bless America’s troops around the world, in US Embassies abroad, and in war zones such as Afghanistan as we celebrate Thanksgiving today. I thank them for their service to keep us free and secure our liberty.
When they have been at war for more than a handful of years, then two handfuls, and going on about thirteen years in a country, it seems it is time to leave. It seems the US should leave Afghanistan now and bring our money home with us. See the story at link #1 which describes a situation where US troops may not stay in Afghanistan beyond the already set in place deadline to leave of 31 December 2014. The troops are in serious retrograde operations in this war zone now, closing down bases and packing up equipment in Afghanistan. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
Links from around the GWOT:
1.) The US may not stay in Afghanistan past 31 December 2014. I think this is a good thing, and the US also can no longer fund the Afghan military while the US military faces cuts. The funding of the Afghan military must stop too. Link:
