    Dear Bob,
    You mentioned an important point.
    When we are winning we hear it on the news every day.
    When we are loosing the government falls silent.
    We should start to get concerned, we hear nearly no news on the famous Obama's surge for weeks!
    Is there any doubt left in the minds of the American people that we have NO BUSINESS whatsoever in Afghanistan? That we are there mainly killing innocents, spending billions and sending our boys to dye for nothing?

    Well Bob its probably because since operation moshtorak there hasn't really been any major events occuring in relation to military operations.and only about 1/3 of the planned number of troops have been deployed currently. There is also a section on this web site that usually files multiple stories on Afghanistan daily.

    We are not loosing. We cleared Marjah in less than a week. Now we are about to clear Khandahar.

    A while back, the military would announce in advance what they were planning in Afgan and people thought that it wasn't a good idea. So, the military is probably no longer reporting their tactical advances. How do you know we are loosing? We just started there !

    We are winning; the hearts and minds of the Afghan civilians. It isn't all about winning tactical battles. The military is also deeply involved in a humanitarian battle. This mission is equally as important as the battle of bullets. I'm aware that the national and international news stories don't report much on this side of the engagement but as one on the ground working it I can attest to the positive effect we are having on the hearts of the "good" Afghan people.
    Thank you,
    Your military medicine at work,
