Gives an account of how we got into the Afgan war. With a hand full of 5th Brigade, Special Forces Soldiers,most of them veterans over 30 years of age, we worked with the Afgans to defeat the Taliban and AlQaida. Nevertheless, we abandoned that front and went to war in Iraq. Most of those were killed in Iraq and are now resting in Arlington. Now we are back to the Afgan war which is spreading and we have over 60,000 soldiers and they want to send more.

Deena Scintilla I totally agree. What a mess we have gotten ourselves into. Why didn't we concentrate on AlQaida to begin with but then no one asked me. Don't get me started- it won't be pretty. ;-)
