Friday was another deadly day in what has become the deadliest month for international troops in Afghanistan.

Three service members were killed on Friday in attacks in the east and south, the NATO-led command reported. A fourth died in a bombing on Thursday.

    What did we learn from the Vietnam experience?

    In a word, NOTHING!

    Remember the magic words, "Exit Strategy," so important they were capitalized? We have none!

    Remember the Diem family? Now we have the Karzais!

    Remember the birth of the counter-insurgency doctrine in South-East Asia? Now we have the New Counter-Insurgency!`

    This adventure is going to end the same way as the last. It's merely a question of time, money and lives that are consumed before the moment of truth is faced.

      This is really all that can be written at this stage. Until the next o kin of the troops that were killed are officially notified of the service members' deaths the Pentagon will not release names or offical information about the individuals.

        Do you know how long it takes them to reach the family members? Or is there any where I can call to see who the soldiers were?

        Rachel-

        You can't call anyone. Most of the time, there is a "blackout" until the family members are notified (no one contacts anyone). The turnaround is 24 hours max. Most commanders have the cajones to call the families as soon as they get approval to do so.
