Goodbye, Hello, and Smoke Weed.

-British Forces will withdraw from the city of Basra by May. Those British guys were always so lovely to run into. They never talked to any of us. They would just chain smoke and giggle at who knows what. And guess who's going to replace them? American forces! You better watch your ass if you're in the IRR.

-Afghanistan may be catching up. By next summer Afghanistan could see an increase in 30,000 US forces. The increase of troops would be comprised of combat, aviation, medical and civil affairs forces. The 10th Mountain Division will deploy next month. Good luck!

Afghanistan on the radar.

-While we're on the topic of Afghanistan: Coalition and Afghan troops found 2.5 tons of marijuana...2.5 tons. Do you know how much weed that is? Jesus. Anyways, they found all this weed in an abandoned school in southern Afghanistan. And then they destroyed it. I'm sure they didn't smoke any of it.

Second hand smoke. That's a mission I'm sure everyone would have loved to be on. As far as the British pulling out, you made a good point. IRR people should be aware. I really don't want to go back. Great writing again.

Obama should think twice about going into Afghanistan as well. Let's see, weed and poppies--bad sign.

Kate, you NEVER smoke confiscated weed. But, when there is that much, it's too much to haul away, so you just have a big bonfire! If you happen to be downwind of the fire, not your fault right! My buddy in the Stan sent me a pic of a 6 foot tall weed that was next to the police station. Funny stuff.
