Afghanistan Weekly Digest: Quran Burning. Troop Drawdown. War Tax Calculator.

[Editors' note: As part of Sojourners' campaign to end the war in Afghanistan, we will run a weekly Afghanistan news digest to educate our readers about the latest news and developments related to the war, the U.S. military's strategy, and the people impacted by our decisions. Read more about our campaign at www.sojo.net/afghanistan.]

  • Afghans continue to denounce Quran burning: "Hundreds of people have taken to Afghanistan's streets in fresh protests against a Quran burning in the United States, as the UN vowed a deadly attack on its staff would not derail its work."
  • Have you done your taxes yet? In honor of the upcoming tax day, check out this war tax calculator. See how much of your taxes this year will go to the war efforts.
