The War In Afghanistan Becomes More Violent

Six months into the Obama Administration, his plans to upgrade US involvement in the Afghan War against the Taliban is unfortunately leading to growing casualties for the United States and its NATO partners.

Twenty seven Americans were killed in the month of June, the most ever since the war began in October 2001,  and more than half were due to roadside bombs or IED’s, Improvised Explosive Devices. 

It is clear that the cost to the American people will grow as time goes by, and I still wonder whether the plan to escalate will have any long lasting effect, or whether this war will become Barack Obama’s Vietnam!
