War without End

USA - America's War With Afghanistan Enters 18th Year. On October 7, 2001, less than a month after the September 11 terror attacks, US warplanes bombed targets in Afghanistan in what would be the opening offensive of Operation Enduring Freedom, the effort to drive the Taliban and al-Qaida from the country and install a democratic government.  CIA operatives and US special forces teamed with the mostly-Tajik Northern Alliance to take Kabul, Mazar-i-Sharif and other cities under an air umbrella that was provided primarily by the Navy and used Joint Direct Attack Munitions to devastating effect.  Depending on who is doing the counting and how it is done, the estimates for the costs of the war for the US since 2001 have generally exceeded $1 trillion. The Pentagon estimates the US will spend at least $45 billion on the war effort this year.

Our comment

It is hard to understand how the USA, the mightiest military power on earth, cannot win a war against a third world nation such as Afghanistan.

You have to ask if they are actually in the war - not to win - but to bolster their own arms industry.

Since the war began, at least 2,414 US, 455 British and 686 troops from other coalition nations have been killed in Afghanistan - a total of 3,555 - according to the website icasualties.org

For what? The war continues, with no clear indication of drawing to a close.

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
