Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 2-10-13-Sunday

leave a comment »

Another Sunday at war for US troops in Afghanistan, while in the USA Americans can peacefully attend the church of their choice. God bless our troops, and say a prayer for them today. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Another year, another commander in Afghanistan. Although the last one was “cleared”, it still showed he wasn’t out leading from the front on patrols, but was sending apparently thousands of e mails to a women in Florida. But, he’s going to be promoted on probably, and a new commander is in place to oversee the withdrawal of US troops. I hope he can speed it up and get it done in just the next few months and NOT almost two years from now on 31 December 2014. Link:

Another December 12th at war, this time, 12-12-12. God bless American enlisted troops. May new leadership with a new strategy arrive soon, so they wan win this war in Afghanistan and come home in victory soon, long before the 12-31-14 date set for retreat. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Protective underwear for the genitals of American troops. This has been too long in coming, after many US troops lost their genitals or had them damaged. The US generals who put out this strategy which got US troops maimed need to face court martial for negligence and dereliction of duty. Bring in new generals with a winning strategy, win this war quickly and come home in months with our money with them, don’t just wait to retreat on Dec. 31, 2014. US enlisted troops want to win. Let them have leaders with winning strategies. The US cannot afford 2 more years of this conflict. Link:

God bless American troops as they face danger in Afghanistan. Pray for their safety and victory so they can return home soon, before the 2014 deadline would be ideal. Links from around the GWOT:

1.)  244,000 U.S. troops have been diagnosed with some form of brain injury in the last 12 years of war. Pray for our troops and our veterans. Link:

2.) Recon Marines repel enemy ambush in Sangin, Afghanistan. To understand story at link #1, watch this video.

3.) Political correctness “killing” U.S. Army:

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:
