afghanistan-talking-points-us-troopsMany of our Soldiers in Afghanistan are required to carry this paper in a pocket at all times. Troops are expected to memorize the talking points and cough them up to any journalists coming through.
We decided to help headquarters spread their message.
Many complaints about poor morale are coming from Afghanistan. Most troops are kept on base, where they undergo mindless inspections and even small ‘parades’, and of course rocket and mortar strikes.
It has been estimated that in 2014, the cost to taxpayers to keep one troop in Afghanistan for one year will be more than $2 million. And we have our $2 million dollar troops there doing inspections and memorizing propaganda for the press, while Washington bickers with Karzai and the enemy grows stronger.
118 US Soldiers have died in Afghanistan this year. Why does the govt talk endlessly about healthcare, and the media talk endlessly about celebrities, yet soldiers don't even get a mention? Why doesn't the Commander justify these deaths like he justifies website failures? Why aren't our congressman explaining to us why we are still there, why soldiers are memorizing propaganda for journalist, instead of killing the enemy or coming home. Why do the people keep voting for a govt which doesn't care about sending citizens to a remote country to be forgotten?
