Afghanistan Today the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 6-26-14-Th. (188 days to go)
188 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan, and things are heating up. Reports have the Taliban attacking Afghan cities, as Afghan forces take the lead in fighting them. US troops are completing retrograde operations in this still dangerous country, packing equipment and closing down bases. God bless American troops as they complete the mission, which is to leave by the deadline of 31 December 2014. Let’s hope and pray that President Obama does not get his way, and the US Congress can stop him from keeping US troops in Afghanistan two more years as he wants to do. Staying until the already determined deadline of 31 December 2014 is long enough!
