Maybe if you didn't forget them while they are out there you wouldn't have to remember them in a Vet hospital. Didn't we learn anything from Vietnam? You can't authorize a Military mission and then sit back do nothing and blame another administration for it. The Military personnel in Afghanistan are forced by an uncaring administration, which seems desperate to grasp defeat from the jaws of victory, to fight by rules set by a rag-tag bunch who live in the 6th century. The American public seem convinced that they should accept the dead and injured in Afghanistan while we have the greatest Military on the face of the earth. This shit has been going on for 12 years and Americans need to demand that we shit (on the enemy) or get off the pot.
