As you awaken today it is 130 degrees in Afghanistan and even 115 degrees in an air-conditioned hospital. And the seemingly never-ending sand storm season is in full force. Can you explain to me why your sons and grand sons are in this ancient chaotic land? The Afghan government and police force are rotten to the core. I see little progress on either front. Have you heard so much as a single cogent sentence from this debacle of an administration as to why American lives are being lost in this forsaken hellhole? Has an end game you can make any sense out of been presented to you? The answer, of course, is no. Maybe your senator or congressman can respond to your e-mail with a sensible answer. If not, each needs to be replaced. It is way past the time of departure in Afghanistan. And don’t buy into the let’s win the war charade. What is there to win? Putting American ground troops on foreign soil is a non-starter and I mean Korea, Vietnam, Iraq as well as Afghanistan.
