SAD MILESTONE: 1000 Killed U.S. Soldiers In Afghanistan, No End In Sight

Yesterday the number of American soldiers killed in Afghanistan reached 1000. And the end of the war is nowhere in sight.
On Tuesday, the toll of American dead in Afghanistan passed 1,000, after a suicide bomb in Kabul killed at least five United States service members. Having taken nearly seven years to reach the first 500 dead, the war killed the second 500 in fewer than two. A resurgent Taliban active in almost every province, a weak central government incapable of protecting its people and a larger number of American troops in harm’s way all contributed to the accelerating pace of death.
