The War and Killing Seems As Though It Will Never End…

Afghanistan

Last night, February 11, 2010, a suicide bomber attacked the United States base in eastern Afghanistan wounding nearly five U.S. soldiers. Many wonder how the man got on the U.S. base territory in the first place. It is being reported that he wore an Afghan border police uniform and was obviously not monitored closely enough as he passed through security. The last suicide attack on a U.S. base in Afghanistan, December 30 2009, killed nearly seven officers and a Jordanian army captain. The Taliban claimed to be responsible for the December 30th attack. Fortunately, no American soldiers were reported dead as a result of this suicide attempt. There are many people that continue to ask and question why we are still in Afghanistan and Iraq, but the more important question is, will this war and terrorism ever end. In my opinion, I believe the war on terror, which many say initially started after the 9/11 attacks, will never end. It’s similar to sense that, we as people go through life and will find people that like us as friends and those that for some reason or just don’t like it. There will plenty of countries that don’t “like” the U.S. and therefore they will continue to wage war.
