The entire war in Afghanistan was pointless and all of the lives we lost were for naught. The Taliban should have been nuked into oblivion. Why Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld did not nuke the hell out of the entire country is beyond me. This is just disgusting.
75% of the Americans killed in Afghanistan were killed since 2009.
Notice how the media does not give us a body count anymore.
I agree...Afghanistan should have been nuked off the planet once it was discovered they were backing Al-Qaeda
Unfortunately, Bush, Cheney, Rove, Rumsfeld, et al are just Free Trader Globalists who value The World over America. Folks should have caught on early when Bush made the statement “Islam is a Religion of Peace”....he had no commitment or desire to win the war against Islamic Terrorism.
And, not a single GOP has really challenged the “Obama killed Osama bin Laden”. Before or after
Nuke Afghanistan? Hell we should have nuked Saudi Arabia for funding all the whabbiis and other radicals. Either that or hit Saudi Aarabia in the pocketbook HARD for their role in 911. 100 oil wells for each death from 911. We should have used it as an excuse to bleed the saudis dry so they would have no more money to fund their little jihad by mercenary proxy.
There was no need for nukes.
The infrastructure in Afghanistan is minimal. Take that out (dams, power plants, irrigation, electrical distribution, etc.), and put them back into the stone age.
Then, send in crop dusters with defoliants just before the poppy fields mature. Ruin that year's crop, and repeat as many years as necessary. That cuts off their major source of income.
Optionally, drop bunker-busters or shoot Hellfires to seal up the caves in Tora Bora. Use Predators to monitor human traffic and watch for the infrared signatures to disappear.
Afghanistan would cease to exist as a country, and the Taliban would be too busy trying to survive.

Nuking 31,000,000 would have made as just as bad as Mao, Hitler or Stalin.
