alifornia sailor marks NATO coalition's 3,000th death in Afghan war

A U.S. sailor who died last week of medical complications was the 3,000th death among coalition forces in the Afghanistan war, according to CNN's count based on information provided by the U.S. Defense Department and the International Security Assistance Force.

Petty Officer 1st Class Ryan J. Wilson, 26, of Shasta, California, died May 20 in Manama, Bahrain, the Defense Department reported in an e-mail Friday.

Wilson, assigned to U.S. Naval Forces Central Command in Bahrain, was supporting the Afghanistan mission, the e-mail said.

Anyone know how you are assigned to Bahrain, yet die in the Afghanistan War? Oh, and haven't we been allies of Afghanistan since at least 2004? So, we cannot possibly be at war with Afghanistan anymore. So, isn't it deceptive to say that this sailor died in the Afghanistan War?

Why do media never ask these questions and tell us the answers? Probably because they rarely do little more than pass press releases from government and corporations onto their readers and viewers.

Maybe the real question is, why do we take so much outrageous crap from politicians and the media?
