CBS News released this video of a brutal firefight in Afghanistan a week ago that cost the US eight lives.
The war in Afghanistan is now reaching a fever pitch and President Obama is going to be pressed even harder by Republicans and the Pentagon to send more troops to Afghanistan.
The US Army and US Marines are stretched to the breaking point and without a military draft it will be impossible to provide the ground troops needed to continue the battle in Afghanistan.
During the month of October there were 55 US military personnel killed in Afghanistan.
At this writing nobody has yet explained what US troops are supposed to be doing in Afghanistan.
The mission has not been defined and there also has not been a plan released for when US troops can leave Afghanistan.
Some military observers say the US could be in Afghanistan for another TEN YEARS.
