Why?


And yet again here on my blog; I find myself asking the question, why are so many young people dying in Afghanistan; just why, why and why?
I’ve just been reading that At least 21 US soldiers and Marines have been killed in Afghanistan since last weekend, making October the bloodiest month for US forces since they invaded the country eight years ago. Still more have been wounded by roadside bombs, rocket-propelled grenades and small arms fire.
President Barack Obama is expected to announce soon an escalation of the war which will only drive up casualties, as tens of thousands of additional soldiers and Marines and let’s not forget 500 more British that are being sent into Afghanistan to suppress popular resistance to what is nothing more than a foreign occupation.

Why, why, why???
