    A Georgian soldier was killed in Afghanistan on Tuesday, said the defence ministry in the ex-Soviet republic which has become a significant contributor to NATO-led efforts to combat the Taliban.

    The soldier was killed in the troubled Helmand region when a mine exploded, also injuring two other Georgian troops, a ministry statement said.

    Corporal Giorgi Avaliani was the sixth Georgian to be killed while serving in Afghanistan, the ministry said.

    Speaking at the United States Military Academy at West Point today, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said this -

    “Any future defense secretary who advises the president to send a big American land army into Asia, or into the Middle East or Africa should ‘have his head examined,’ as Gen. [Douglas] MacArthur so delicately put it,”
    Too bad Mr. Gates was not President Bush's first choice for SecDef.

    World War I


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Frank Buckles, believed to be the last surviving U.S. veteran of World War One, has died at age 110, according to media reports Monday.

    The Washington Post, quoting his daughter, said Buckles died Sunday at his farm in West Virginia.

    Buckles, who celebrated his 110th birthday on February 1, lied about his age to join the army at age 16. The Missouri native was among nearly 5 million Americans who served in World War One in 1917 and 1918.

    "I knew there'd be only one (survivor) someday. I didn't think it would be me," he was quoted as saying in recent years.

    Buckles drove an ambulance during the war. In 1941, while working as a civilian in Manila, he was captured by the invading Japanese and held prisoner for 38 months during World War Two.

    The Post said that with Buckles' death, only a 109-year-old Australian man and a 110-year-old British woman were believed to survive from the estimated 65 million people who served in the 1914-1918 war.
