Afghanistan’s -call to duty-Men wanted for hazardous journey, small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful, honour and recognition in case of success.


5000 volunteers queued up in response to this advertisement, posted by Ernest Shackleton seeking crewmen for his Antarctic expedition.

Everyday we have brave men and women serving.  They serve with one hand tied behind thier back.  Most of them are scared to death to make one mistake.  It could cost them thier careers.  Instead of medals they recieve courts martials.  The battlefield is full of foolish rules that get them killed. 

That being said.  Steven Pressfield is the author of Gates of Fire, has come up with a strategy that will win if given the proper attention.  He has spent much time in Afghanistan and has come up with the most logical strategy that has been formulated. 

Hopefully, some eyes that REALLY matter will see it.
