Some news articles on the Afghanistan war:

"Blackburn: Afghanistan broke itself: We owe the country nothing special", The Palm Beach Post, July 23, 2010.  The author, a former member of the The Palm Beach Post editorial board, writes an opinion piece that says we shouldn't have to fix Afghanistan because we didn't break it.  Essentially he says our work there is done.

"A PR surge on the Afghan front", Checkpoint Washington, The Washington Post, July 23, 2010.  Read a post about the NATO military command PR apparatus.  The author claims that the coalition is stepping up its PR campaign to win the "hearts and minds" of U.S. new journalists.

"The corporate warriors who make a killing in Afghanistan", The Herald Scotland, July 24, 2010.  An opinion piece lamenting the growth of private military corporations - uses the term "mercenary" as a description.  Hmmmmm.
