afghanistan...in the news?

i was at work and saw a map of afghanistan on the news! holy shit! of course, it was in regards to U.S. airstrike that killed Pakistani forces. the best part was, the news guy, showing a map of afghanistan inside a map of texas! and saying something to the affect of...afghanistan is small, its smaller than texas and its located here...AND showed little American flags all around the country where U.S. troops are...AND reminded America exactly why we invaded Afghanistan, September 11th. HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT. to be honest, i'm completely excited afghanistan was the news...i'm pretty sure 85% of Americans have forgotten we are still there. however, i feel bad for the Pakistani forces who were killed and thats what it took to get "the other war" on tv. on that note pakistan...hand over Osama...jesus christ.

How true. Can't remember the last time hearing Afghanistan in the news. The forgotten war.

Kate-
Your my vision of the modern hero. I thank you for your service and am thrilled by the film project you are working on. My question is...when the Taliban take over 5 towns in Kandahar province...why didn't we bomb the crap out of them immediately? Why are we letting them dig in and mine the area?
