R.I.P. Devil Dogs...

Sad to hear our brave troops have fallen. I suspect it is going to be very difficult for the foreseeable future. It appears we are increasing our efforts to destroy and disable the enemy. The Taliban have the advantage of knowing the terrain and having had time to plan routes of escape and strategic maneuvers using that knowledge. The Marines on the other hand have a technical advantage, an advantage of supreme discipline, superior skills and a fierce mindset brought on by a mixture of intelligence and sheer guts.

My sympathies go out to their families.

I suspect it is going to be very difficult for the foreseeable future.

Given the regularity with which casualties occur I would assume that it is rather difficult all the time.

“where thousands of American troops have deployed in a massive operation to oust Taliban fighters from the country’s opium poppy region,”

First they went for the Iraqi oil & now the US government is trying to cut out the Afghan middle men in the opium trade.
