The economy remains a disaster and Democrats won’t propose a budget (then they might actually be accountable for something).
And record numbers of our soldiers are dying in Afghanistan. Sadly, I suspect this last bit of news will get the least play. I worked in Afghanistan between 2004-2006, when the Iraq war was still the focus of the MSM (Iraq war bad, Afghanistan war good). But even then, more of our soldiers were dying on a per capita basis in Afghanistan than in Iraq. We just had more soldiers in Iraq.
May was always the worst in Kabul. The snows had finally melted and that’s when terrorist season began, usually with a dramatic bang. After the initial May frenzy, the attacks would level off, the terrorists pacing themselves over the summer and early fall. Then there’d usually be a final, limp “hoorah” around October, before the terrorists went into hibernation for the winter.
