Afghanistan Today, your portal to the United States’ growing nightmare abroad.

Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 22 Feb. 2014-Sat. (312 days to go)

312 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan, as they spend another Washington’s Birthday at war. It is a still dangerous country for US troops as they complete retrograde operations, packing up equipment and closing down US bases, so keep them in your prayers.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) General Allen, now retired, spout off on war planning. Something about this is not right to me. I believe these retired generals, McChrystal (who was on CBS the other day hawking a book), Petraeus, and Admiral Mullen, who presided over a failed Afghanistan and Iraq war plan, focusing on COIN (nation building) should spend the rest of their lives tending to the wounded troops, the amputees, and those with other injuries who suffered these casualties under their military plans. These same generals and admirals, now retired, should also spend their days in Ganjgal, Afghanistan, Bati Kot, Afghanistan, Sangin, Afghanistan, and other hot spots talking to the elders, with a contingent of guards, if they want to continue their COIN plans.
