The A-10 Is Back Over Afghanistan

Submitted
 
The A-10 Is Back Over Afghanistan. The skies over Afghanistan once again echo with the sound of brrrrrrrt. The U.S. Air Force has sent the A-10 Warthog close air support aircraft back to Afghanistan. It’s the first time in six years that the warplane has flown over the country and is part of a surge of troops and equipment into America’s longest-running current war.

It is past time to get some of the really good close air support aircraft over there. After the A10, we also need to get some of the AC-130's over there and have a real good time. We have been pussyfooting around over there for way too long. Either get it done, or get out.... quit making it look like Vietnam II.
