How long do we need to be there!!!!!!
We threw out the Taliban from power, now we have to police the place to keep them out?????
We got Bin Ladin, the original mission!
If the place is gonna go to hell if we leave….........then so be it.
There’s another hundred hell holes on this earth. We have to stop trying to fix them or we’ll become one ourselves.
We’re headed that way now…......Detroit?
Our brave men and women are to precious to sacrifice on the worlds putrid ilk.

Let’s pack up and leave Afganistan, and Iraq, and toss a Nuke on the way out. It’ll save a lot of lives, time and money.

I pray one day war will be something we will only read about in the history books.

”Bleeding heart liberals need not respond”

Discussions of national tragedies really need not involve unprovoked name-calling.

I’m with you Neil! Frankly a LOT of people have died from action in Afghanistan and Iraq (and who knows where else we haven’t been told) both on our side (incl. allies) and the other side counting civilian murders.

Any death due to unnatural causes is a waste regardless of one’s nationality.
