Diggers Early Withdraw From Afghanistan Amid Taliban Coordinated Attacks




CLICK ON ARROW TO PLAY VIDEO

Australian troops could begin pulling out from Afghanistan in the coming months and may have exited the country almost entirely by the end of next year, Prime Minister Julia Gillard of Australia said Tuesday.



That would mean that most of the more than 1,500 Australian soldiers in Afghanistan could have left a year earlier than the government had previously suggested.President


Karzai: We're ready to defend our nation


That timetable puts Australian forces on a quicker withdrawal timetable than Gillard had previously described. In a speech to parliament in November, she had said that the transition in Uruzgan might well be completed before the end of 2014.

I would love to say I found the IED today, but I'll have to wait until I'm an 80-year-old grandpa. For now I have to tell the truth, the Afghan National Army Soldiers we were with found it. It wasn't much of a surprise, the Canadian Soldiers who are partnered with them told us last night the ANA find nine out of ten of them. It's because they've been doing it for more than six years and they know these roads and the Taliban.

"SWIFTBOATING" TAMMY DUCKWORTH. "DEADBEAT DAD" ILL. REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN JOE WALSH BLASTS IRAQ WAR VET


REPUBLICAN ILLINOIS CONGRESSMAN JOE WALSH, who owes over $160,000 in back child support, blasted military veteran and amputee TAMMY DUCKWORTH by saying serving in the military does not qualify anyone for a political office.

Duckworth is an Iraq War veteran and former U.S. Army helicopter pilot whose severe combat wounds cost her both of her legs and damaged her right arm. She continues to serve as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Illinois Army National Guard along with her husband, Major Bryan W. Bowlsbey, a signal officer and fellow Iraq War veteran.

Perhaps the "deadbeat dad" should have told that to Dwight "Ike" Eisenhower and Sen.Bob Dole, both Republicans.

SERGEANT WHO SAVED AFGHAN BOYS LIFE LAID TO REST IN PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND

A heroic Sergeant was laid to rest Monday after giving his life for a child.

After lifting a boy out of the way of an oncoming armored vehicle, Sgt. Dennis Weichel was struck by the truck and subsequently died from injuries he sustained, according to the Associated Press. The military originally reported that Weichel had saved an Afghan girl.

A funeral service was held for Weichel on Monday in Providence, R.I. where the flags were flown at half staff, WPRI reports. He will be buried at the State Veterans Cemetery at Exeter.
"I knew Weichel would do something like that because he definitely cares about people," Spec. Seth Chiaro told the news outlet.

Weichel was posthumously promoted to Sergeant and was awarded the bronze star and the NATO Service Medal Afghanistan Campaign Ribbon RI Star, the AP reports.

During the funeral service, according to WPRI, Maj. General Kevin McBride called Weichel's selfless act "a virtue we should all live by."
