May the Lord protect these men and women serving in Afghanistan and bring them safely home.
"Operation Induring Freedom", sounds very patriotic. How about "Operation Build Bases and Occupy". Polls show that most Americans want the US out of Afghanistan but the govt. and military seems intent on occupying the country. America is financially broke and spending hundreds of billions of dollars in Afghanistan, for what? Protection from Terrorists? Haven't they learned from history that all empires eventually fail. What makes them think that the American Empire will do any different.
