Fighting is expected to increase as winter closes in. No idea what ever happened to the supposed peace treaty announced by the media a few weeks ago but apparently it's defunct. People say this isn't another Viet Nam? This war will never be won and not because our military isn't capable or because it doesn't have enough funding. It will continue because of profit and it will continue for oil; the war on terror is another unwinnable but ever fundable war, and until we can gain official access into Pakistan (which I believe we're already a smidge into) Afganistan will continue to drain us both in terms of money and lives with no forseeable result. I wish we'd defend our own borders as well as these.
