Afghanistan June death toll reaches 100

A member of the international coalition fighting in Afghanistan died Wednesday of wounds sustained in an insurgent small arms attack in eastern Afghanistan, the military said.

The death toll has now reached 100 for the month of June, according to a CNN count, making it the deadliest month ever for NATO-led troops in the nine-year Afghan war.

    HERE'S an IDEA!!! PLZZ, THIS will sound crazy an all, OK, here we go, TAKE a "SLEEPING AGENT" An do this only at NIGHT OK!!! FLY OVER the area in which you are INTERESTED IN, And put them ALL ASLEEP, then GO in and SEARCH thru who is who!!! Pull the troublemaker's away from the hot spot!!! When the other's awake it will scare the ship out of them!!! I'M trying here!!! YOU want to fight a "WAR" but shoot no bullet's HMMM!!! This would be a way!!! THE ACT OF GETTING SOMEONE IN THEIR SLEEP is by all mean's the most TERROR THAT "WE" COULD possibility do as a "PEACEFUL" solution!!! HOW about that for "CRAZY" HUH!!! THIS IS ONLY A OPINION!!! ARE YOU LISTENING???

      A noble idea my friend, but methinks you have been watching too many Hollywood productions.
