Another Thanksgiving at war for US troops in Afghanistan. God bless them, and may they be sent leaders who have a new strategy to secure victory SOON so they can come home in weeks, not two more years! Links from around the GWOT:

Two more Americans were killed by an Afghan soldier or soldiers today. Please remember our troops in your prayers. Contact your elected officials: CNN reported two Friday’s ago that the cost for current operations, which does not include the lifetime care of injured, etc. is $2 billion dollars. That is two thousand million dollars! The cost in blood and treasure is too much. God bless American troops. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) British Royal Marines train for Afghanistan, they previously served in deadly Sangin. Like the American Marines they are now being told to, out of cultural sensitivity to the Afghans, stop farting and cussing. Link:

2.) American troops killed by Afghan forces. Meanwhile, the Taliban killed their fellow Afghans, they beheaded 17. Link:

3.) US troops punished for doing what they were ordered: burning enemy communication. This needs to be overturned, and only officers in charge punished, for the situation getting out, and not explaining that they were burning as ordered, enemy communication. The Koran was already defaced with their writing in it for enemy communications. Link:

Another Sunday at war for U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Pray for them, that they can secure victory soon and return home after winning the war. Pray for new military strategy and leadership with a culture of victory in which they can instill in American troops. Pray for our injured, and that there will be no more American deaths or injuries soon. God bless the USA. The US military has secured our freedom of religion, so we can go to the church of our choice today. God bless the US enlisted man. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) U.S. Army buried Islamic reasons for attacks and murders of US troops by Afghan forces. A thought provoking thought at “American Thinker”. Read this story and contact your elected officials who send our troops to war. Link:

Our religious freedom remains intact in America thanks to or troops protecting it for us at home and abroad. We can attend Christian services today, Sunday, our day of worship, and peacefully spend the rest of the day with our families. Or, if we so desire, we don’t have to attend church services. It is our decision in America. We can pray only five times a day at appointed times, or we can pray without ceasing throughout the day. It’s up to us. God bless the USA and God bless America.

The war goes on in Afghanistan, while America’s involvement in Iraq comes to an end soon, at the end of December 2011. There is an end date for the Afghanistan War in 2014.
