Time to bring the troops home

1 post / 0 new

Three U.S. soldiers were killed in Afghanistan today – after a man wearing an Afghan military uniform detonated a vest full of explosives outside a military compound. This is the latest attack on coalition forces by Afghans dressed as soldiers or police officers. Under the current strategy, the U.S. military is training an Afghan security force to take over when coalition forces leave the country in 2014.

But on days like this, when members of that Afghan security force end up killing U.S. soldiers, we’re reminded of just what a mess this war is to begin with. Time to bring home the troops – and close the book on our nation’s longest war ever.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
