Death count in Afghan war reaches 2,000
The Kansas City Star
It has taken a lot longer for the death toll in Afghanistan to reach 2,000 U.S. troops compared with the war in Iraq.
But the Iraq war is over, and the fighting in Afghanistan continues. The public in the United States long ago lost its stomach for the 11-year conflict.
Afghan forces that U.S. and NATO troops are supposed to be training are turning on our military, adding to the death toll. The Afghan government is less than capable and trustworth in running the country without our military.
The war in Afghanistan needs to end and U.S. troops brought home before more deaths occur.
