Building Bridges in Afghanistan

Ok, not really. But its good to see that the Marines are finally building bridges in Afghanistan; especially the Helmand Province.

It all stems back to the debate -- Bombs vs. Bridges. What works and what doesn't? I think we need bombs and bridges. There needs to be a balance between diplomacy and military force. One is not better than the other, but using both may get us closer to a "solution" in Afghanistan (whatever that may be).
