    Sometimes I wonder why we count the death toll of these precious young men instead of just reporting the incident. These numbers make devil happy. I bind you in Jesus name here on earth... !!Amen

    Multiple US Troops reported abducted in Afghanistan. The soldier in this photo looks like he is trolling for becoming another abducted soldier. I hope at least the abducted US troops body's are eventually recovered so those grieving familys can have closure on their children.

      Lets hope captured solders come home alive. I have no doubt, they will not be killed because a solder captured few months ago is still alive and has been seen on oversees tv news. Wish the same for the adversaries captured by allied forces and Afghan American subordinated forces and the corrupt illegal stooge government of Karzi.

      sometimes people are under drugs Riza. So thay are not on earth. So thay dont feel other peoples pain and difficulties other people go through especially unless they them selves go to war. I respect you for taking time and consideration to write in this column eventhough your country is going through a difficult time. your country and people are in my prayers.
