The hard truth about the Afghanistan war

You will be reading the hard truth about the Afghanistan war. This is the news you will not get from the Mainstream Media or Fox News. Brace yourself.

Michael Yon is most likely the most knowledgeable and experienced journalist who has reported on military combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. He remained imbedded with direct combat troops and special operations teams for years, since the beginning of our adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is reporting the truth which is now causing him problems with our politicians who parade around in their high ranking military uniforms and kiss the rings of the establishment Washington rulers.

Michael Yon is one person away from me. He is a friend of a very good friend of mine who retired from the Army Special Forces. Michael Yon is well qualified to report what is reality in war because he has been there as a former Army Special Forces soldier and as an imbedded internet blogger, reporter and journalist with the toughest of the tough in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Hopefully you understand what he is trying to tell us. I do because I have been there in a different disgusting political war, Vietnam.

He has experienced more combat in the past 11 years than the majority of soldiers and has lived to write about it.

What he is writing is a long read so get yourself a cup of coffee, beer or glass of wine and be prepared for the hard hitting truth. Many of us old Vietnam combat veterans fully understand exactly what he is saying as the canary in the coal mine.

It is undeniable our political generals and their allies in the Washington cesspool have totally screwed up both Iraq and Afghanistan. Our children and grandchildren will suffer the consequences for generations to come. This is just more of the incompetence and corruption that President Eisenhower warned us about, the military/industrial complex.

Remember, it is not the rank and file military responsible for this, it is the political generals, appointed bureaucrats and the elected politicians who must take responsibility for what they have managed to do to the Afghanistan and Iraqi people and to us as American citizens.
