Angry? You're Damn Straight I'm Angry. Roger That.

After reading Lt. Col. Daniel L. Davis' first hand account of his recent time spent in Afghanistan I'm more pissed off then ever. Yet another military officer comes forward to tell the truth about yet another ill-fated war we find ourselves engaged in. Another illegal war of aggression with no end in sight and surround sound corruption aided and abetted by an enabling government and a bloated military too full of its own hubris to admit defeat.

"On his second yearlong deployment to Afghanistan, Lt. Col. Daniel L. Davis traveled 9,000 miles, patrolled with American troops in eight provinces and returned in October of last year with a fervent conviction that the war was going disastrously and that senior military leaders had not leveled with the American public."

Davis lays out his experiences and views in the article, "Truth, Lies and Afghanistan: How Military Leaders Have Let Us Down."
