Their guidelines are if you don't comment to their liking then they delete it so they can control the direction of the conversations. Someone needs to sue their tails for breach of their constitutional rights.

The Constitution restricts the Government and only the Government.

Organizations such as the Washington Post and Huffington Post can restrict otherwise Free Speech and they do.

The idiots at Huffington Post delete anything they don't agree with, which is why 85% of the Democratic comments are never posted. The Huff is not a respectable form of media, they only support the Republican point of view. And yes most likely my comment will be deleted.

Is the soldiers family going to be well paid by the Afghans, as with them when one of thiers gets killed by a nato soldier? Same with the 2 killed by a afghan insider??

We can stay in Afganistan until the cows come home. Within one year of pulling our troops out Karzai and his Korrupt Krooks will flee to (name your political asylum country) along with billions of U.S. dollars he looted. Then the taliban will return to power in a country with an updated infrastructure all built with American and British blood. Get our troops home NOW!

I am amazed that the Republican Party is not screaming at Obama because we lost another soldier in Afghanitsan today. They made plently of noise about four American deaths in Lybia.

Well since this always breaks down to yours or our president: yours took us into Afghanistan with no pruposes, ignored it for years while he concenrtrated on avenging daddys rep in Iraq and trying to do one better. Your President lost plenty of Americans in embassy attacks which you all conviently ignored. He also set the world up in a "You are with us or against", not exactly they way to win hearts and minds. His party also blocked extra funding for emabsssy security about a year or so ago, which you and your party also conviently overlook in this arguments. Take it elsewhere, lots of Americans are done with turning this stuff into partisan arguing which the right seems to thrive upon.

As it was in Nam, it is in Afghanistan. Gives new importance to the buddy system and having someone you can trust covering your back. We had each others back in Nam and if I were in Afghanistan today I don't think I would go out or turn my back unless I had a buddy covering me! Afghanistan may even be worse than Nam since you have supposed allies IN UNIFORM that you have to protect yourself from!

Unfortunately, this is not happening when our troops 'go out', but on bases in areas that should be safe.

Hmmm, if you remember, a 10 year old girl in Vietnam could kill you as easily as a 10 year old boy who made a dime shining your boots with a loaded 45 hidden in his shoe shine box. Both would shoot you as dead as to look at you, remember?................

U.S. Identifies Vast Mineral Riches in Afghanistan

The previously unknown deposits — including huge veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and critical industrial metals like lithium — are so big and include so many minerals that are essential to modern industry that Afghanistan could eventually be transformed into one of the most important mining centers in the world, the United States officials believe.

The corruption that is already rampant in the Karzai government could also be amplified by the new wealth, particularly if a handful of well-connected oligarchs, some with personal ties to the president, gain control of the resources. Just last year, Afghanistan’s minister of mines was accused by American officials of accepting a $30 million bribe to award China the rights to develop its copper mine.

At the same time, American officials fear resource-hungry China will try to dominate the development of Afghanistan’s mineral wealth, which could upset the United States, given its heavy investment in the region. After winning the bid for its Aynak copper mine in Logar Province, China clearly wants more, American officials said.

USGS surveys Afghan natural resources

Jim Bullion, director of a Defense Department task force, said the mapping would help the Afghan government asses its mineral deposits.

"These maps clearly show the enormous size and variety of Afghanistan's mineral wealth and position the country to become a world leader in the minerals sector," he said in a statement.

USGS said light reflected from the surface can be used to determine the difference between vegetation, snow or minerals.

U.S. defense officials estimated in 2010 that there could be as much as $1 trillion worth of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and lithium in Afghanistan.

A 2007 survey found an estimated 1.5 million metric tons of potential rare earth resources in southern Afghanistan. The international community gets more than 95 percent of its rare earth minerals from China.

I don't care who develops it, but Afghanistan better use some of these "minerals" to pay a bill to the American taxpayers who put their government together for them!

Prior to screaming about leaving Afghanistan please educate yourselves about the atrocities visited upon the people by the Taliban. After that education, if you are still heartless enough to say just pull out, then so be it.

The Taliban comprise a very small part of Afghanistan's population.

If the Afghannis really wanted them gone, they would have been gone a long time ago.

We are in that surrealistic, unthinkable reality of a true Catch-22. We can't win if we stay, but if we leave, we've lost. And, if we've lost, we have to concede to our moms, dad, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, spouses and friends...your treasured loved one died in vain. If we stubbornly stay, we lose more. How did we get ourselves into this again?

Today, I honored my father, a Korean veteran and my husband, a Vietnam veteran. My son's best friend..I've known the man since he was a boy of 10...is in Afghanistan. I am surrounded by past and current soldiers....and I think...what if any of them were lost, or God forbid, will be? I'd like to think I love and embrace all of humanity but I have to admit, I wonder how much?

We as Americans, contrary to what some self hating citizens primarily left of center believe, often get invoved because we are trying to help someone. We then worry that we are not liked. I think we need to go back to the days of walk softly and carry a big stick. You attack us, you get the stick until you are destroyed. You threaten us, you get the stick. No one gets foriegn aid unless they GIVE US something in return. If you practice genocide like the Nazis, Dalfour, Rwanda, you get the stick from 20.000 feet until you stop. Thats it. No rebuilding, no foriegn aid. If private organization want to help, fine. No American Blood and Treasure just to "help you". You hate us anyways, so why worry about being the most popular kid in school?
