Afghanistan troop increase.

  1. Trump announces new strategy for Afghanistan that calls for a troop increase - The Washington Post

    Honestly, I am disappointed. I don't think Afghanistan will ever be free of the Taliban or other terrorist groups by our actions. The Afghan people need to elect and support their own government and then seek and eliminate any groups they don't want around. We need to get out of the way and let them figure it out.

    I hope we are done with this before my grandkids are old enough to be drafted.

    I also think we should not sacrifice anymore American lives in Afghanistan. I feel for the people there, but at some point they are going to have to figure things out. I hope Trump will volunteer his sons if he wants to send more of our sons and daughters over there.

    Well, it's another campaign promise broken by Trump. He said he didn't support troops in Afghanistan. Anybody surprised?

    This question crossed my mind as well. . . .

    I'm pretty sure that DeVos' brother is working hard to convince Trump to let him run that war.

    Not surprised at all.
    Has the man read a book?
    There's a reason they call Afghanistan the graveyard of empires.
    They have no need for our brand of democracy in any case, as we've no moral authority to impose it.
