Bill Roggio, Long War Journal and FDD / @BillRoggio; in re: Two US soldiers killed in Kandahar. Expanding influence of the Taliban. If they wanted a peace deal with the US, they’d dial back the killings; but they want to drive the US out by force. . . . The notion of "World War III” with Iran is [absurd], as it’s a fifth-rate military power. Much press [hysteria] over Iran, but ignoring our own dead in Afghanistan.
