Recently, while watching the TV documentary “Bomb Patrol - Afganistan” I asked myself, “Why the hell are we even in that waste land?” Our troops are not able to fight the enemy unless the enemy fires first. Troops are put into situations where there are high degree of possibile casualties and deaths, major military material losses and the list goes on and on. There is NO WIN there and the Russian’s were smart enough to realize it when the pulled out. The faster we can get out of there the better. That, in itself is something I COULD agree with our gubmit on. Cut our losses and forget it.
Yep...either win it or leave....otherwise it’s insanity in that God forsaken place. If they wanted to be free of the Taliban then they should have been more co-operative...and our guys should not have been restricted from doing thier job.
Bring them home...not one more life should be given for these people who have no intensions but the status quo.
This is like our leaving Vietnam all over again. My question, who will be on the last helicopter out of that hell hole? Perhaps the best thing to do as we leave would be to put down an anthrax barrage. While that surely would not be the Christian thing to do, according to our fearful leader, we are not a Jadeo-christian nation anyway so what difference would it make. I’d also love to know where those with all the billions we poured into that place are with their ill gotten gains. Time for some take out teams to find and eradicate them too wherever they are. Gee, that would even be a good use of all these drones we have amassed.
