Afghanistan- Our Forgotten War?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
When Michael Yon writes on a topic I pay attention. His writing on Iraq has been excellent. His later piece is great and also is very disturbing about our efforts in Afghanistan. From the video we see it is easy to believe that this country is sparsely populated. However, it has a population of 31 million which is 7 million more than Iraq. Our combined forces in the region is 21,000 . Yon points out some hard truths that need to be corrected and soon.
