Why are we still there ? RIP.
Obama’s Afghanistan policy moves ahead without a hitch.

Why in the HELL are our soldiers on PATROL duty ? After ten years of so called 'training' why aren't the Afghans doing this ? Too dangerous for them ? ..... or are they so damned stupid they'll need a few more years of training before they can drive down a road in an armored car ? What a criminal waste of our precious soldiers. DAMN !!!
They are sitting ducks damn it!
Politics. We are trying to "withdraw with honor" or some crap. At this point I don't think we should have ever occupied the place. Revenge I understand. But Afghanistan is no Germany and pouring billions of dollars into Afghanistan / Pakistan is no Marshall Plan.
We didn't learn from history.
