Taliban Holding Soldiers Hostage?

Taliban Holding Soldiers Hostage?

Kabul : Afghanistan | Jul 25, 2010 at 6:48 AM PDT
Views: Pending

Yet another military operation has gone awry, as 2 U.S. Service members have gone missing in Afghanistan on July 25th, 2010. There are many theories to why and where they have disappeared to, and the most prominent one states that they were kidnapped and being held hostage by Taliban, the Afghani extremist group. Rather than give in to the murderers' demands, the U.S. is carrying out ground and air searches to find the unfortunate soldiers. This hassle has also gotten national alliances sparking, since NATO is now offering $20,000 to anybody who can provide information in the name of search operations to find these soldiers. Let's just all hope this will be solved without violence, even though it probably will. Over 1,000 soldiers have died in the war, according to the Department of Defense , on July 23, 2010. President Barack Obama has also vowed to recall U.S. troops next year. Will he keep his promise this time? That can only be answered in the future.
