Why is this place important? The Russians were there, we were there, and now it seems that the Turks have taken interest.

What is it with this place?

They apparently want to kill each other. Seems like a win-win to me. Neither side is on ours.

I canít argue with that statement. After 20 years you would think they would see the light. The light being Freedom and all it has to offer. Sad

Ike said, Ď beware the military industrial complex.Ē We love sending our young people off to some foreign conflict so the Oligarchs in the USA can get more wealthy. I say let China have a go at Afghanistan, and see how they make out.

Follow the money

No idea how this is kept so quiet.


If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom - go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!

China would be pretty efficient in killing off the Afghans. Why? Because they would care less about what the rest of the world thinks. We have a problem with politicians meddling in military affairs. Our military is quite capable of destroying Afghanistan, but we "have to win hearts and minds and not upset anyone".

We should have dedicated ourselves to exterminating the Taliban years ago, instead of going on a misguided invasion of Iraq.

We're allowing the enemy who attacked us on 9/11 to takeover Afghanistan once again.

1) So you are on board with the likes of former president Karzai? The man who gave false intel on "bad guys" who the US took out, only to discover that they were nothing more than his political enemies?
There is no "good side" in the spit hole country.
2) The US went to Afghanistan well before going to Iraq, and killed plenty of the Taliban, and showed Afghanis how to kill plenty of them. The problem is that there isn't a nickle worth of difference between a regular Afghani and a Taliban once there is a knife to their throat. They become "believers" for self preservation purposes.
I say leave them be. I'm sure Allah will sort it all out for them.

Here is my take on what is really going on.
Whoever is in charge of the current administration pulled us out so that they can bring us back in once the killing gets bad enough. This will happen just in time so that they can run political adds before the midterm elections. "Joe and the Democrats are the answer to World Peace" they will claim.

I don't really concern myself with this stuff. But, at a glance? I seem to have found that " Afghanistan " came into being in, or around 1747.

Brits make a move on it, 1839. Colonialism. They jack in 1842! That didn't pan out then.

1878? They're back! 1881? Back out. Butts on a platter.

1919? 'Stan flips the world the digit. World concedes.

1979? Russia gets cheesed and drops by to teach some lessons.

1988/9? That's quite enough of Thatsky! Butts on a platter.

1998? You boys send in cruise missiles. I think we all about have the idea since then?

Now? It's suddenly about 'Rare Earths'.

Something missing here?

In WWII we destroyed Germany and Japan. That worked. No one was willing to do that in the middle east. Either go to war or stay home. I say we should have destroyed Saudi Arabia. The rest of the sand box would have been a lot quieter. I also say its not to late.

I agree Danny, the sauidi's are evil. It was mostly all Saudi's behind the 9/11 attacks.

Here's an idea. Let's stay out of everyone else's business and maybe they'll stay out of ours. If not, we can deal with it then.

I am tired of spending our money and people overseas.

It's not my neighborhood nor is it yours and we can bomb them from afar if need be. They've been Waring in the region forever and will still be fighting long after we're gone.. Our real president Trump had it right to want to pull all of our service members out and we should still do so.
