    We haven't had a good discussion on this for quite some time. Why are we still fighting in this impoverished country that has warlords in it's corrupt government.

    McCain wants to put bases there. Obama wants more troops there. Other than the 2010 pipeline that will be built and continued through Pakistan I can't think of a reason. American troops will be fighting to secure an oil pipeline? That's not any kind of reason to be there. It was my objection to going there in 2001 ... the pipeline and a stage for Iraq. This is one time I hope Obama is talking out of his arse ... because we don't have any business there anymore.

    IMO ... we have no business being there ... none. The call for troop withdrawels from Iraq should include Afghanistan. Only a multi-national force should be in Afghanistan if the U.N. deems it necessary.

    If they pull out of Afghanistan how will they justify Iraq?

    It will be interesting Wildo ... that is how they justified it in 2001.
    Obama keeps saying he will put more troops in there and hopefully that's
    just election babble because there is like no reason to be there anymore.
    The people are still living in poverty, employment is like 60% and the country is run by heroin warlords.

    Yes, so let's abandon them again, like we did during Reagan/Bush... But then, maybe we should.

    In the view of the globalists, Afghanistan -- the just invasion -- can not be left to the Taliban to purge and burn the poppy fields (and they will, again)... Because drug sales (in the hundreds of billions, globally) are crucial to western economies and the seedy, under-the-table operations they pay for with drugs sales. This is all pretty well documented at this point ... Further, an argument can be made that we only went into Afghanistan to stablize the drug production there,... that, and protect the oil pipeline plans that the Taliban had suddenly rejected in 2000-2001, after previously agreeing to. Heck, the bigger question is, why are we bothering with an oil pipeline? The Caspian reserves were found to be VASTLY less than predicted in the mid to late 90s.

    Meanwhile, in Iraq in 2003, oil pipelines were PRECISELY what the Bush League directed U.S. forces to secure, while ignoring most everything else that the State Department and Iraqi Ministry desperately requested be protected from looters (museums, federal records buildings, sewage plants, etc.). Thanks Mr. Bremmer, Wolfie and Donald. Thanks Boy King and Cheney, for withdrawing the smart people at State from the outset.

    Yes, the agenda was clear from the start.

    So really, I have to ask: Considering your party of choice's rather transparent agenda throughout all of this calamity, why are you announcing that you're actually baffled by what they do?

    Or are you just miffed that Obama vows to redeploy to the only country we should have bothered with in the first place, and draw down from the one we ruined?

    The effort in Afghanistan reminds me of the war on drugs, lots of rhetoric and attaboys, but no real effort...

    Get Out of the Muslim Nations.
    They all hate us and want us dead
    Protect our own borders, our own people and our own AMERICA
    Let the Savage Bastards slaughter each other
    Let the f-cking animals keep their women in slavery and black sheets forever.
    Let them keep stoning their women to death
    Drill for Oil now wherever it is
    Impeach the dirty old Grinning Skank Pelosi send her back to her Frisco Wino's

    Let the Crooked Anti American Pigs at the UN handle the Muslim Killers of the world.

    DEFEND OUR OWN COUNTRY AND OUR OWN PEOPLE TO THE DEATH

    PUT UP THE WIND MILLS IN FRONT OF KENNEDY'S HOUSE, BUILD THE NUKE PLANTS, DRILL FOR OIL, TELL THOSE SCUMMY MIDDLE EAST HEAD HUNTERS TO SHOVE THE OIL UP THEIR SMELLY BASTARD A$S HOLES.

    ELECT ANYBODY BUT THIS ARROGANT LONG LEGGED PING PONG PADDLE EARED SWEET TALKING SOCIALIST COMMUNIST SH!T HEAD PRINCE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA

    OH JESUS THE LORD THY GOD SAVIOR AND HOLY MARY MOTHER OF THE LORD THY GOD JESUS H CHRIST ALMIGHTY SAVE US FROM FROM THIS F-CKING CREEP THEY CALL "BARACK" HIS FIRST NAME SOUNDS LIKE THE BREAKING OF WIND FROM THE BOWELS OF A LARD A$S MORPHADITE HOG.

    He used to make me laugh, now he just tries to hard to say the most shocking thing he can think of. Check out the Sexual assault in the military thread for another example of lonely-drunk syndrome.

    Yes, but mine is at least coherent. You just come off as rather crazy, and your thought process in rage-filled disarray.

    I actually agree with Harry here, most specifically on these points:

    Kill Muslim Savages, the liberal loons want Billy Blue Dress and Auntie Pelosi to have a tea party with the arab terrorists.

    Big fat nutjob Al Gore loves the extremist muslims even though they would chop his pedophile balls off.

    The socialist liberal scumbag bastards want to molest home-school kids and force women in the Army until they get raped by horny boys like mother nature wants.

    GODDAMN AMERICA

    ALLAH IS GREAT
