    The new stratagy :We are now paying the taliban more to not shoot at us than they are getting paid to shoot at us .What happens when the checks dry up ? We are doing this to the tune of 190,000 a minite. The schools in my town need rebuilding too. Get us out of there now.

    How do our troops tell who is Taliban and who is civilian?

    Kudo's to CNN on adding Afghanistan Crossroads to the blogging articles, it is filled with timely and insightful glimpses and events in the Afghanistan war zone.

    My thoughts on the Marjah and overall war in Afghanistan is that as long as the CIA is preventing the American and Allied military from directly destroying all of the vast Opium poppy fields in Marjah and thru-out Afghanistan, there is no winning the war in Afghanistan.

    As long as the vast Opium poppy fields remain in Afghanistan, the Taliban can quickly rebuild their numbers, re-equipt their fighters and bribe ever more tribe leaders and Afghanistan officials.

    There is no victory in Afghanistan as long as those vast Opium Poppy fields remain intact, flooding rural America's heartland and grade schools with cheap heroin.
