Afghanistan Today, a GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 11/6/14 Thurs. (58 days to go)
58 days to go by my count, for US troops in Afghanistan. Now, articles are coming out describing a longer presence, perhaps until 2016. With the US in deep debt, and the US House and Senate both being run now by Republicans, it remains to be seen if the US Congress will fund two more years in Afghanistan, as the US needs this money to pay for care for US veterans, and to buy new US war equipment as the US military is worn down after being at war since 9/11/01.
