ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the difficulties and hardships in Afghanistan as of October 2010. Logistics company operator Soora Stoda had to pay the Taliban 150,000 U.S. dollars in order to make them release her American military bound delivery of laptop computers. New American soldiers, unconditioned to the 100 degree heat, terrain, and weight of their gear either fall behind or pass out while on patrol. The veterans are reportedly not immune from the heat, often suffering too from exhaustion.
