Afghanistan Today, a GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 9-6-14 Sat. (117 days to go)

117 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan, keep them in your thoughts and prayers as they continue with retrograde operations, closing bases and packing equipment. As Afghanistan has mineral wealth as shown at link #1, time for the US to bring her money home with our troops, to bring our money with us, as they can pay for their own military. The US is in debt and needs to use the money now paying Afghan troops, to take care of our own troops and veterans.

I just finished reading “Level Zero Heroes” about Marine actions and restricted rules in Afghanistan among other things. Please order this book, or go to the store and buy it, or download it to Kindle, etc. This is a story that needs to be told! Let’s put this book on the best seller list!

118 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan, or thereabouts. See the link #1 about all the riches Afghanistan has. Time to bring US troops home, and our money with them. The US can no longer afford to fund the Afghan military, we need to fund our own military and our American veterans.

Remember, a good read for this weekend would be the newly released book about Marines in Afghanistan and the restricted rules of engagement they endured, “LEVEL ZERO HEROES”. I just finished this book and give it my highest recommendation.

Time to have a huge investigation or tribunal after end of this war on 31 December 2014, and hold accountable those politicians and military officers responsible for the losing counterinsurgency theory that led to massive US casualties throughout the 13 or so years of war that we have been in Afghanistan since 2001.

Let’s make sure these officers, and the various losing war plans and strategies are NEVER used in war again! We have already had one Vietnam, why did we use the “Vietnam Plan for Afghanistan?”

In future wars, the US military motto should be: “VICTORY THROUGH STRENGTH.”

1.) Afghan riches. They should use them to pay for their own country and military. Link:

120 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan by my count, which could be a few day off.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) the Afghani$tan $candal: “33 billion, a drop in the Pentagon’s wa$te bucket”:

2. “Level Zero Heroes”: this important book about Marines in Afghanistan comes out today. I ordered mine online on Kindle. It can be bought beginning today in brick and mortar stores or online too. Every American needs to read this book, it needs to be a #1 best seller. Watch various TV appearances by the author, who will also be on radio shows. The forward is by a former MARSOC Commander, now retired Maj. Fred Galvin. I highly recommend this book, I am on chapter 4 now. Link:

247 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan, and if you read the story at link #1 you see there is a plan afoot for more dirt bikes for them to ride in their remaining days there. Look at the comments too for more details. Featured in the story is the author of the upcoming book on MARSOC, Special Operations Marines, titled, “Level Zero Heroes.”

1.)  “Level Zero Heroes” author, former MARSOC (Special Operations Marine) comments in this CNN story about the use of motorized bikes in Afghanistan. The book sounds like it will be excellent, I plan to read it. Other stories said the forward of the book will be written by retired Marine Major Fred Galvin who was the leader of the first ever MARSOC company in Afghanistan in 2007. Link:

277 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. December 31, 2014 can’t come soon enough.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) The first MARSOC Marine Commander, Major Fred Galvin (ret.) will pen the forward to the upcoming book, “Level Zero Heroes.” Sounds like an excellent book, I wish them great success! (Note the revision / correction at the bottom of the link now. Also read the comments for more details.) Link:
