    I was just thinking about this this morning.

    We need to get out of there, there's no victory or win to be had. Yes, Afghanistan will go to hell. But that's going to happen sooner or later, might as well get out now.

    The whole G-D place is not worth the lives of those two brave men.
    IMHO, we should have got out a long time ago - like eighteen years. :flag:

    Prayers sent. A tragic loss of our sons' blood. My biggest fear is that ALL of the blood spilled there will have been in vain.

    Go to hell or stay the same, doesn’t matter. Nobody could tell the difference.

    It was a losing proposition from the start. All the money and all the troops in the world aren't going to make even the urban parts of Afghanistan like Germany. People 20 minutes outside the big cities have never heard of 9/11 and think the Americans are Russians from the last occupation.

    "Geographically, Afghanistan is situated on the crossroads of Central Asia and South Asia. Afghanistan is not part of the Middle East, but it is bordered by a Middle Eastern state (Iran)."

    These men answered the call. May they rest in peace and may the Lord comfort their families.

    R.I.P. Soldiers.

    My son did a very violent tour in Afghanistan, I give thanks everyday he made it home. Between the sand boxes many of his friends weren’t so lucky.
