Pray for America’s troops in Afghanistan who have 109 days left there even as the Commander-in-Chief Obama has decided to go to war against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. So, keep them in your prayers this Sunday as one war ends and another war starts even before the current one is over. Links from around the GWOT:

Afghanistan Today, a GWOT Hotspot (the Afghanistan Scandal?) 9/11/14 Th. (112 days to go)

13th anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks. God bless our troops and military.

Now while the US leaves Afghanistan in 112 days, more wars are brewing, as evidenced by a war speech by the Commander-in-Chief On
Ba a last night. Now it looks like the US is leaving Afghanistan, but going back to Iraq, and into Syria.

Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot 5-12-14-Mon. (233 days to go)

233 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan.

While American troops are now still in Afghanistan, unanswered questions remain about the attack on an American CIA base and the death of the US Ambassador to Libya, along with the deaths of 3 other Americans in Benghazi on 9-11-12.

The Benghazi attack took place at a time in 2012 when US troops were in combat operations in Afghanistan.

Today, American troops in Afghanistan are in retrograde operations, closing US bases and packing equipment.

While Afghanistan operations wind down, as US troops leave 12-31-14, the Benghazi committee does its job to find answers.

In the meantime, when the Benghazi committee completes its job, it will be time to start another committee to investigation all the scandals in Afghanistan, the many US deaths and injuries, and the huge amount of US tax dollars spent in Afghanistan.

Both of these investigations can’t come soon enough to demand accountability of those in charge of the lives of American troops, and wounding of many more.

God bless American troops in Afghanistan. Now it seems the focus is on Syria, and a CBS story reports that John Nicholson, now a US Army Major General is back, leading the 82nd and preparing for possible warfare in Syria.
