In the run up to Afghanistan I told my wife we’d never win this “war on terror” because we aren’t willing to do what would have to be done.
It’s hard to say, but Bush was as much of a puppet of other interests as his dad, as Clinton and now as Obama.
Bush failed to define our actual enemy. He labeled this thing as a “war on terror” which by definition can never be won because any bonehead with a knife can create terror. He should have properly defined who attacked us as Muslims and attacked that.
Bush claimed in a speech that unless you are for us, you are our enemy, but Pakistan still receives billions of dollars from us, YET Al Queda has been growing, and training there forever and that is where they come from to attack Afghanistan. Besides that, the President of Afghanistan is not for us anymore either. He’s just taking our money and will disappear once we stop protecting him.
Afghani’s neither want freedom, as we know it, nor do they have the will power or knowledge to sustain freedom. They are a country filled with what amounts to theiving welfare reciepients. I say cut them off now and blow up anything that threatens our troops on their way out.
