    Junc - "Worland, want to tell me why we are still in Afganistan?"

    Doesn't matter on this blog.

    This blog is a memorial to the soldier who died.

    Politics about how he died belong elsewhere.

    Worland, want to tell me why we are still in Afganistan?

    I thought Bush's sign said "Mission Accomplished".

    Eduardo -

    Take your private agenda elsewhere.

    There is mourning here which some are showing respectful comments about.

    Awww, praying for those who loved him.

    Carry on valiant warrior, at heaven's gates.

    Semper Fi!!!

    God bless.

    He was KIA #471 of 472 so far this year... the deadliest year in Afghanistan by a large margin.

    TIP brave young hero.

    Your sacrifice in the Obama war is appreciated.

    Odd isn't it, we no longer see families or friends listed, nor the amount that die monthly nor how many have be "murdered" in this senseless war over poppy fields and rock piles.

    I am not a ghoul, but I do want an accounting of how many we sacrifice.

    Also were are all of the doves: Hollywood types, political types, college types, super liberals, who were all over GWB about the war. How come they are so MUM about the Obama war?
