Over a thousand U.S. soldiers have died in the War on Terror.
As of today, 872 soldiers have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom and 129 in Operation Enduring Freedom
. Time for a moment of silence, perhaps, before sharing your reflections on the subject.
Nine US soldiers killed, forty wounded in this mountain
Surprise, surprise. Our enemies can still shoot up convoys and shoot down helicopters. (Many of them did the same thing to the Soviets.) Why are we sending our troops to the front in rented pickup trucks
and 4-wheel drive vehicles? What ever happened to the Bradley
? Don't they know that helicopters
make great targets... especially when your enemy has Stingers
? Why rush back into ground combat against a larger-than-expected enemy force anyways?
