SGT, USA
Let me start off by saying that I am deployed to afghanistan as I'm typing this email. Mainly what I have to say is screw counter insurgency. I came here for a war, and instead I am part of a "hands across afghanistan" type effort. All I see is american soldiers getting wounded and killed by suicide bombers and IEDs. As far as I'm concerned, I joined the army, not the damned peace core. All COIN and ISAF are doing is tying our hands behind our backs and making it harder and harder for us to eliminate the enemy and go home!! If you think that your run of the mill taliban or haqqani member would treat you with respect, you are dead wrong...he would cut off your head with a dull rusty knife while your family, friends and country watched.

P.S. note the comment above by Ali K. Chishti, and I quote:
" ...
good stuff matey!!!!
regards from Pakistan"

What they really should have said is "thanks for letting us win this war, we really appreciate you not killing groups of our terrorist organization. By the way, until you leave here, we will try our best to kill every last one of you while your family watches it on the news."

Cheers!

Great idea!
I like the concept for this month-long tour through Afghanistan and I hope it gets the visibility that it deserves. I will look forward to hearing from the local people of Afghanistan when possible and of course our servicemembers who are serving over their in ISAF. Stay safe!

Day One
As I sit here through Round 3 of snowstorms here in Ohio, my thoughts are with you and all of the other young men and women who are deployed there. At this early point in your mission, do you have any feel for the extent to which the COIN message is being relayed to troops in dangerous areas like the Korengal Valley,Zabul, and Helmand? Is the emphasis for them still aggressive military operations (offensive and defensive) or is it a combination of military necessity and COIN potential? I'm so excited about this project. I can't wait for Day 2.Be safe.
