The Daily Dead and The Iran Attack Plan

U.S. Army Spc. Nathaniel Small, 29, from Rockland, Maine, prepares for a patrol with Afghan soldiers in the Jalrez Valley in Afghanistan's Wardak Province on Sunday.

Two U.S. service members died Saturday in the country's south — one from a roadside bomb explosion and the other from an insurgent attack, the NATO-led force said. A British soldier died Sunday from a bomb explosion while patrolling in southern Afghanistan, Britain's Defense Ministry said.

Elsewhere, three French soldiers died in a violent storm in northeastern Afghanistan late Saturday. One soldier was struck by lightning while two were swept away by a rain-swollen river during an operation in Kapisa province, said military spokesman Christophe Prazuck.

This year has been the deadliest of the eight-year war for U.S. and NATO troops. The latest six deaths bring to 64 the number of NATO troops killed this month. {more}

  1. I might not care for the government one bit. I might not care for the two branches of the war party but I can never turn against the troops. May they return safely and get the hell out of harm's way.
