And From That Other Forgotten War...

My Way News - Up to 105 Die in Fierce Afghan Violence:
KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) - Some of the fiercest violence since the Taliban's ouster in 2001 erupted across southern Afghanistan, with militants battling U.S. and Canadian forces, detonating car bombs and attacking a small village. Up to 105 people were killed, officials said Thursday.

Much of the violence occurred in the southern provinces of Helmand and Kandahar, where thousands of extra NATO troops are scheduled to deploy this summer to counter an increasing number of attacks from a stubborn insurgency.
It's not over 'til it's over. And this one's not over yet, either. We didn't clean up after ourselves here before moving on to that totally unneccessary war in Vietnam Iraq, so what are the chances we won't do the same in Iraq?

Afganistan is no where near over. Iraq will not be over for a long time. Bush has said that much himself.

Still, the American Media Machine should do a better job of reporting the events and ongoings in Afganistan. A good number of our brave men and women are serving their time their. This was a war that had some justification, one I supported then and still support today.

My two cents.
