Six U.S. service members died in separate attacks in Afghanistan on Saturday, another round of killings in what is shaping up to be the most violent summer of the nearly nine-year war.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/10/AR2010071000649.html
The troops died from diverse causes, including homemade bombs, gunfire and an accidental explosion. Four were killed in eastern Afghanistan and the others in southern Afghanistan, the two regions of the country where the Taliban insurgency is strongest.
Both deaths in the south were caused by roadside bombs; those in the east involved bombings, small-arms fire, an unspecified insurgent attack and the accidental blast, according to NATO statements.
One day, I hope Obama / Biden explain how their Afghanistan policy is different than the one suggested by McCain / Palin.
