Two more American soldiers were recently killed by an Afghani wearing a local police uniform. Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai has accused the U.S. of colluding with Taliban terrorists.

We are spilling American blood on the sands of a nation that only wants what material goods and money we provide. The Afghans' historic enmity toward any intruders into their desert domain has been part of their culture for millennia.
