Why are we still over there?
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.
