Three troops killed in Afghanistan

Three service members from the NATO-led forces in Afghanistan were killed in action Thursday, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said.

One died in an insurgent attack in the east and two died in bombings in the south. ISAF has not released their nationalities, but the British Defence Ministry confirmed that one of the service members was British.

The British soldier was killed in an explosion during a foot patrol in the Sangin District of Helmand province, located in southern Afghanistan, the ministry said.

    One Small Voice! You are so ignorant! You preach open and honest discussion, but you can't handle it when there is disagreement with your opinion. Much like most of your left wing communists pals. Open your eyes and ears. Global terror is not going to stop by talking about it. What about innocent women and children in Uganda? What do you suggest we do? Crawl in a hole and blog about it. Hug them and they will stop bombing indiscriminately. I don't believe so. Blood spilled in a cause that is good is worth the sacrifice. If you don't agree then, what do you suggest? The administration you voted in keeps us fighting. So does that mean you don't support them?

      What I suggest is that we quit interfering in the affairs of other nations and just mind our own business.As for the administration,I'm very sorry that I voted for it but then again,we had no alternative.Let's just try to get together with the Taliban and try to put an end to this senseless war.

    It just goes on and on so the right-wing politicians can further their careers and the war profiteers can grow ever richer and the general public is taken in by all this mumbo-jumbo.
