God get us out of Afghanistan....PLEASE.
I wish someone could explain to me the strategic reasoning behind continuing the fight in a country thats involved in a civil war, that desires to remain stuck in the 18th century, that has fewer than 100 AQ terrorist in it and one in which we are in essence nation building.
Rant over. Here's the news we all dread.
These service men are more than likely Marines. Helmand Province falls under Task Force Leatherneck control.
Five NATO Servicemen Killed in Afghan IED Attack(KABUL, Afghanistan) -- Five American servicemembers of NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) were killed in southern Afghanistan Thursday.

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack, sending a text message to the media. They said two American Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles, or MRAPs, were targeted in the Marja and Gereshk districts of Helmand province.
The servicemembers have not yet been identified.
