Afghanistan Today-the GWOT Hotspot: 2-6-10-Sat.

leave a comment »

The month is deadly so far for U.S. troops in Afghanistan who work with restricted rules of engagement that Gen. McChrystal put in place which endanger their lives and result in their death or injuries. Let the US troops fight or bring them home. Various links from around the GWOT:

1.) American soldier captured by the Taliban threatened by death. Where is the outcry for his Geneva Convention rights? Link:

6.) We must not forget our 3 fallen Recon Marines, KIA Afghanistan 1-11-10. Contact your elected officials: the enemy who killed these 3 must be captured and held accountable. Do not give them money to join the Afghan government until these murders are solved. Link to comments by Congressman on Staff Sgt. Ingham; one of 3 fallen Recon Marines based in Okinawa, Japan. Contact him and make sure the murderers of these 3 troops are held accountable:
