 Move America Forward
Taliban Leader Thought to Be Killed May Still
Be Alive and Plotting Against Our Troops!

Last month U.S. Intelligence and military officials thought they had killed one of the Taliban’s top leaders in a drone attack in Pakistan. However, the latest reports from Pakistani security sources indicated that the leader of the Taliban in Pakistan, Hakimullah Mashud, is likely still alive and coordinating Taliban activities across the border to Afghanistan.

Meshud, Still Alive? Still A threat!

This terrorist leader is the primary man responsible for the deaths of U.S. troops as well as independent foreign contractors and innocent Afghan civilians whose only crime was cooperating with the international force, led by America, to rebuild Afghanistan and keep terrorists from using it as a base against us.

We must support our troops in Afghanistan as they are under continued danger! We thought our troops could breathe a sigh of relief with the death of the enemy’s leadership, but unfortunately that could be premature. Our troops are still facing a strong Taliban in Afghanistan whose weapon of choice is the roadside bomb and the IED!
General Petraeus Says Fight for Kandahar Will Be Tough
Like Insurgency in Iraq, Petraues Sees
Things Getting Worse Before They Get Better


General David H. Petraeus who is largely credited with inventing the modern theory of counterinsurgency and successfully led our troops to victory in Iraq has been surveying Afghanistan and taking stock of the situation and General McChrystal’s work.

Gen. David Petraeus, the head of the U.S. Central Command, toured areas in and around Kandahar to bolster support for the military operation aimed at routing the Taliban from their southern stronghold.

"There have been tough moments here in Kandahar in recent weeks — that is well known. And we know that there will be more tough moments in the weeks and months ahead," said Petraeus whose command oversees both Iraq and Afghanistan

Our troops are going to need our support during these dangerous times. Kandahar is the spiritual Capital for the Taliban and their last stronghold in a major city in Afghanistan. They are going to put up a fierce battle for our troops to overcome.

They have sent over 200 TONS of goodies to the troops over the years.

A couple of years ago they went across the country just before Christmas and on the way collected over 150,000 greeting cards for the troops in Iraq

Enough for each brave patriot serving there to get one!
