Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal) 3-3-14-Mon. (303 days to go)

leave a comment »

303 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan as they complete retrograde operations to close US bases and pack equipment so all American troops can be gone by 31 December 2014. Pray for their safety in this still dangerous country.

Afghan President Karzai expresses anger at the US government but appreciation for the US taxpayers who have funded his country and military the last 13 years.

It is now time for Karzai and his government and military to stand up as the “Vietnam Plan for Afghanistan” takes place and his soldiers will be responsible for places like Bati Kot, Ganjgal,  and Sangin, places where American soldiers and Marines, MARSOC Marines, Navy SEALs and Army Rangers fought, died, suffered amputations, and gave their blood for his country and sacrificed so much mentally and physically for Afghanistan and American national security.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Afghan President Karzai appreciates the taxpayers of the United States who have funded his military the last 13 years, but is angry at the US government. Well, as I see it, with cuts to US troop and veteran budgets, the US taxpayers can no longer fund his military. He and his successor are going to have to use their mineral, gas, coal, and oil riches to fund their own military and their own government. The United States taxpayer has done it for 13 years and can’t afford it anymore. Link:
