The Pentagon's failed campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan left a generation of soldiers with little to fight for but one another.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern world peace and government systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
Second Platoon did not hide its dark mood as its soldiers waded across the Korengal River in the bright light of afternoon. It was early in April 2009 and early in the Pentagon's resumption in earnest of the Afghan war. The platoon's mission was to ascend a mountain slope and try to ambush the Taliban at night. They were about 30 men in all, riflemen and machine-gunners reinforced with scouts, a mix of original platoon members and replacements who filled gaps left by the wounded and the dead. Many of them considered their plan foolish, a draining and dangerous waste of time, another example of a frustrated Army unit's trying to show activity for the brass in a war low on focus and hope. They muttered foul words as they moved.
