#AfghanistanTuesday - Striking a Nerve on Sept 20

Some tweets really struck a nerve on #AfghanistanTuesday last week, and this week was no different!

(One of the great things about Twitter is that, when you strike a nerve, you get instant feedback!)


Below, for your consideration, are the tweets from Tuesday, September 20, 2011, that really lit up the retweets. As always, I leave it to you to draw your own conclusions!
