The blast from a roadside bomb killed three U.S. Servicemen in Afghanistan Tuesday morning, and wounded three others.
“Lt. Ubon Mendie, a spokesman for the U.S. forces, said in a statement that three other service members and one American civilian contractor were injured in the blast. The wounded were evacuated and were being provided medical care, Mendie said,” according to USA Today.
The Taliban – the same one that we have been fighting since 2001 – claimed responsibility for the attack, which happened in the Ghazni province. The identities of the soldiers remain unknown.
According to the report, at least five servicemen have been killed in Afghanistan in November in a seemingly-endless war from which the last two president’s have promised withdrawal. That withdrawal has yet to become reality. A total of 11 servicemen have been killed there this year.
Army Sgt. Leandro Jasso, 25, was killed last week during combat operations in the Helmand province of Afghanistan. He was a member of the elite 2nd Battalion of the 75th Army Ranger Regiment.
The war in Afghanistan has raged on since 2001, and the war in Iraq since 2003. The United States has deposed Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, which has led to widespread chaos and war between factions of mostly-Islamic groups in the Middle East.
The Trump administration has faced pressure to depose Syria’s Bashar al-Assad over reports of his alleged use of chemical weapons on his own people. So far, Trump has managed to keep the military industrial complex at bay, but has not managed to find a solution for war-weary Americans have been looking for a way out the Middle Eastern quagmire for years.
Without an established end goal, it appears that our brave troops are simply meandering in an endless void of violence. It is time to bring them home.

Tommy Tuberville Says “We Can’t Worry About China Right Now”
Even though they allowed the disease to spread.
Former football coach and Alabama US Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville said that “we can’t worry about China right now” in a radio appearance with Talk 99.5’s “Matt and Aunie Show on Thursday.
When asked by hosts about the implications of the global coronavirus epidemic on the United States’ relationship with China, Tuberville said, “Well, we can’t worry about China right now. We’ve gotta worry about Alabama and this country.”
Tuberville is currently running to represent Alabama in the United States Senate, although he’s been registered as a Florida voter in the past.
His comments on China policy will leave many Americans concerned with the nation’s role in the coronavirus epidemic unsatisfied. Certainly, containing the epidemic in this country is the priority, but a wide range of conservatives and China hawks have already begun to discuss the need to fundamentally reevaluate the United States’ relationship with China. The damage already inflicted upon American society and the global economy does present a pressing case that such a question is in fact urgent.
Tuberville is running for Senator, not Governor. He could be forgiven if he was running for an office not entrusted with high-level foreign policy responsibilities, but Senators in the coming months and years will be entrusted with developing China policy that recognizes the authoritarian communist nation’s role in allowing and covering up the global coronavirus epidemic.
Contrasting in stark fashion, Tuberville’s opponent for the Republican nomination for US Senate in Alabama, Jeff Sessions, has called for a congressional select committee to investigate China’s role in covering up the dangers posed to the world by the coronavirus, the virus’ origin in Wuhan, and potentially lying about the casualties incurred as a result of the disease in China.
I am calling today for Congress to immediately establish a Select Committee on China to lead the investigation. This Select Committee should be given the authority to wield the full investigative powers, including the power to compel witnesses, of the United States Congress.
— Jeff Sessions (@jeffsessions) April 1, 2020
If Alabama voters want a Republican Senator who is going to be tough on China, it doesn’t look like Tommy Tuberville is up to task.
