KABUL, Afghanistan — Eight Americans died in combat in southern Afghanistan on Tuesday, bringing October’s total to 53 and making it the deadliest month for Americans in the eight-year war. September and October were both deadlier months overall for NATO troops.
The troops, along with an Afghan civilian accompanying them, were killed in several attacks involving “multiple, complex” improvised bombs, according to a statement from the NATO-led coalition. Read More Here RIP
It has been one of the toughest weeks for US Forces in Afghanistan with this latest tragedy. I would like to let the American people know that we feel their pain over here. We are all in this together. I hope President Obama gives the Generals the men they require to do the job. The Taliban will be pressing ahead more than ever with attacks especially upon US Forces hoping to influence American public opinion. We cannot fight a War without an understandable mission, its time to stop dithering with soldiers lives and make a decision. It time Obama stopped showboating with nice speeches and made a difference on the ground where it matters. My deepest condolences, you will never be forgotten. RIP.
