get them out of there

OK, that is way more than enough.

I was just reading that a soldier from the Minneapolis suburbs was killed in combat in Afghanistan yesterday, becoming the 2000th fatality in the horribly-named Operation Enduring Freedom mission.  He was just 21 years old, newly married in March... sounds like he was a great kid.

Why are kids still dying in that war?  Whether that war in Afghanistan should ever have ever been waged will be eternally debated, but, regardless, it should have been done a long time ago.  Bring them all home, and don't let another war like that one -- futile and endless -- ever start again.
