Nice Big Targets Painted On Backs Of Empire's Enforcers

US deaths double in Afghanistan as troops pour in

"The number of U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan has roughly doubled in the first three months of 2010 compared to the same period last year as Washington has added tens of thousands of additional soldiers to reverse the Taliban's momentum.
Those deaths have been accompanied by a dramatic spike in the number of wounded, with injuries more than tripling in the first two months of the year and trending in the same direction based on the latest available data for March.
U.S. officials have warned that casualties are likely to rise even further as the Pentagon completes its deployment of 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan and sets its sights on the Taliban's home base of Kandahar province, where a major operation is expected in the coming months."

After your victory, it is clear that we can win. Only 79 dead against 2,000 NVA regulars. All we need is more men, we’ve requested 50,000 more soldiers. We’ll run the little bastards back home!” Col Moore replies napalm and artillery pushed them back alright and that his men slaughtered the enemy. "But we won’t be running the little bastards back home, they are home sir.”
