It appears freedom will not endure for long in Afghanistan.

Keep it strategic fellas.  C:-)

Dammit Carl!:
Shocking.   :2funny:

Sir Slash:
I hadn't heard the 8,000 figure, 3,000 was the most used number but I suppose there would be more for support and such. I also heard U.S. airstrikes are being ramped-up considerably but without a base close by, some flights are 8 hours or more. Anybody else heard anything similar?

Gusington:
I have read that US air support has increased for what's left of the Afghan gov't. That said, the whole situation is turning into the departure I think everyone here feared.
