Many Americans have been killed by Afghanistanis in safe quarters. Many Afghans have been killed as well by us and by The Taliban!! But the better question regarding these deaths is: Why are we in Afghanistan to begin with! It is not a new territory to conquer. The Lithium there can be gotten elsewhere. No, We are not there to stamp out terrorism!! WE REALLY NEED TO ASK OUR AMERICAN MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX IF MAINTAINING PERPETUAL WAR IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?? IT IS OBVIOUS THAT THEY HAVE THE MOST TO GAIN FROM THE DEATH OF OUR LOVED ONES!!
