Three basic facts about the war in Afghanistan

From Sojourners:
  • Financial: The U.S. is spending more than $100 billion per year in Afghanistan
  • Human: 1,570 Americans killed, more than 10,000 wounded  
  • More than 10,000 civilian Afghan deaths, 3,000 in 2010 alone 
Tell President Obama and Vice President Biden to keep their commitment to start troop withdrawal from Afghanistan in July 2011.
