107 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. In the meantime, more war duty looms, as the Commander-in-Chief Obama wants to fight and win a war with ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) This story cites another insider attack in Afghanistan (near the end) and another attack killing 3 ISAF soldiers. A NY Times story I read said the 3 killed were American soldiers. Link:

Pray for American troops in Afghanistan this Sunday as they complete retrograde operations and leave that country by 31 December 2014. In an incident this last week, a plane leaving Afghanistan, carrying out Americans and apparently some Canadians as reported in the press, made a forced landing in Iran. As the story at link #1 indicates, and as reported on major TV news outlets, the plane was allowed to leave Iran with its passengers. Links from around the GWOT:
