“More Than 14,000 U.S. Troops Were Wounded In Afghanistan Since 2008 | The Congressional Research Service released a report this week that found that to date, 2,030 Americans have died in Afghanistan and in the broader Operation Enduring Freedom since October, 2001. Nearly 2,700 soldiers were wounded in Afghanistan from 2001 through 2008, while a staggering 14,143 have been wounded since, a period of time that included a substantial troop surge:”
there is a graph at the site:
It is because of the surge and winning the fight there, but it would have been less because of the ROE.
I don’t understand what are these young men fighting for
in Iraq and Afganistan..(under obama)
They always told us it was for the terrorists al-Qaeda
(at least that was true under Bush)
But the same al-Qaeda were the rebels and freedom fighters in Egypt and Libya....
so bad in Iraq and ok in Libya...
so many wounded and killed since obama stole office
