    CNN,in your list of forces or coalition troops in Afghanistan I dont see the US listed, which amounts to ten times the highest member shown the UK. In addition I dont see China listed either. Ether they dont send troops or even with their enormous resources choose not too, and instead let the rest of the world bankrupt themselves on this carnage.

      I thought some boby had it, who has the most to gain by war,Do you know the biggest and profitable business going is war,always has been.Knowing when to cut your loss's is the key.It use to be a civilized way to war,but those day's are long gone.If your going to fight a civilized war with animals that cut the heads off on prime time t.v. Your a fool,if you think they have a hand book on war wake up, we put four G.I.s on trail for taking picture's of nude prisoner's.Are you f–k-n kidding me. Your there for one reason and only one reason ,kill and keep killing till your the only one standing.That shows your enermy you had the hand book ,and burned it. That shows the enermy killing time is here, and you said screw the rules.A instinct is survival and thats al,l you need ,i'll go to the brig and be one happy mother f–ker. Thats why alot of vietnam vet's came back all screwed up. they were never supposed to win,thats bad business,God bless those guy's, and the one's that passed in iraq.If im going to die,it will be my way',not some wall street dirt bag calling the shots because he;s taking a loss.

    Forty-seven countries have troops in Afghanistan and not a single one of them has any business there!!! It shows just how powerful the MIC(military-industrial-complex) has become! How repulsive!!!

      Yeah, cuz 9/11 never happened. It was all a giant conspiracy by the MIC and their right-wing Washington thugs.

      Is my tinfoil hat on straight?
