Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 7-8-14-Tue. (176 days to go)

176 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. Reports today say that 4 NATO troops died today. Some reports say they were from the Czech Republic. Have not heard officially other than 4 NATO troops died.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Discussion of taking private security contracting jobs overseas, especially in war zones, pros and cons. I will be glad when the economy recovers and veterans can go to school on the GI Bill and return to private industry, the power industry, the insurance industry, get into banking, finance, construction, teaching, and many other jobs in the USA instead of going back to a war zone as a contractor.
