Why are we still over there?

See, this is what our politicians should be talking about. These wars are a heavy burdon on our debt situation and the lives of our soldiers. We cant afford to be over there. And i believe that the strain is more than we can handle.

It is not a mere coincidence that the most of the causalities are from the Seal that was involved in Osama's operation. Don't want to raise conspiracy theories, but apparently it looks like some kind of cover up..

Doubt it, Seals/Nightstalkers are used int reaction forces and there are only a few Seal Teams. Just a sad coincidence, but what gets me is that people are already trowing in the towel and saying the Taliban are winning because they got a lucky shot at a chopper taking off.

What gets me are the people (after ten years, mind you) who are still thinking that we are accomplishing anything other than some yahoo belief that these guys died "defending" our librty and country. More like lining the pockets of arms dealers and producers. Throwing in the towel? More like being tired of wringing our young people's blood from more and more towels.

Because allowing the Taliban and Al-Qaeda to take over Afghanistan and rebuilt their camps to attack america is a great idea.

So let's stay there 100 years? Do yourself a favor and learn something about Afghanistan's history. There's a great article at Wikipedia called [The Great Game], please read it. Then you might understand why the people over there are not happy that ANY foreign "occupier/liberator" is on their soil. As you probably wouldn't be happy if they were on yours. Ten years was enough time if this was going to work. It hasn't and isn't going to. It's unbelievable that people can be so gullible and parrot the propaganda they are told. Hey, it's certainly something that the boys at Halliburton are glad about when the get another no bid contract tossed their way.

No. I don't calling it throwing in the towel. I call it finishing a whats finished. Osama Bin Laden is dead and his supporters are on the run. What you see now in Afghanistan is the remnants recruiting people who are sick and tired of having a foreign power on their land. Not to mention its a moderate burdon on our financial system, which is not in that great of shape. Other Problems are now popping up like the famine in Somalia, Japans earthquake relief efforts, ect..
