    It's a shame this is what people are discussing and not the fact that we're still over there in the first place.

    Good point, could this be another "cry for attention" to the forgotten war? There seems to be an effort to give as little space as possible to Afghan war violence reports in media.

    Shows what happens when the usual out the girl GIs use (get pregnant) is not an option.
    Out of every one hundred men they send us, ten should not even be here. Eighty will do nothing but serve as targets for the enemy. Nine are real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, upon them depends our success in battle. But one, ah the one, he is a real warrior, and he will bring the others back from battle alive.

    Duty is the most sublime word in the English language. Do your duty in all things. You can not do more than your duty. You should never wish to do less than your duty.

    Some radical freedom invention in future could end the gender gap there someday, who knows.

    Looks like investigation report was factual, being reported by other sources too.

    What with American Idol, and Trevon Martin ... I totally forgot we were still in the Middle East /sarcasm.

    They really need to end this ... There will be no Empire in the Middle East.
    Let them keep thinking Ron Paul supporters are just a little army. Every military strategy manual in the world has examples of the bad things that happen to arrogant commanders of massive armies that underestimate the enemy. They all lose. We will win because the human heart, despite its detractors, is meant for truth and freedom.

    Risk with that is that it could bring attention towards failing deadly Afghan war and hurt Obama's Iran war drama, not to mension distract from zimmerman race war drama. Not high chance of Afgan news headlines on Drudge.
