    And you're right. I don't care.
    You have lost about 1009 in Afghanistan Recent Afghanistan Casualties | Faces of the Fallen | washingtonpost.com

    so maybe not.

    We have lost 278


    BBC News - British military fatalities in Afghanistan

    3 more since then

    Afgan deaths, not a clue.

    And to lay down 150 soldiers lives for some sanity in Afghanistan is heartfelt.
    Do as they wish though I would think they would want to be a part of finishing the job
    especially for the 150 lives given. To honor them and their purpose

    Unfortunately that is patently obvious.

    One wonders why you even bothered to post at all!

    Thank you for the support from out brothers to the North. You guys have been there a long time and while sad to see you go you have earned it! Too bad Clinton would have worked it out to keep you guys there a bit longer.
