Fighting and Dying for a Barbaric Culture is Too High of a Price to Pay for Our Brave Soldiers
I understand why we went into Afghanistan, but after 10 years enough is enough. The Afghan people, for lack of a better word are too barbaric, are not interested in moving into the 21st century and not interested in peace, prosperity or civilization.
There is absolutely no reason why our brave men and women continue to fight and die to liberate a country that has no desire to be liberated from bondage or fight for themselves. Almost daily we are hearing of rogue Afghan cops or military shooting and killing U.S. soldiers.
Withdraw our troops now, it’s time to bring them home and stop letting Obama stroke his ego as a wartime president with the blood of our troops. Our military in Afghanistan is being hamstringed at every turn, and like Vietnam, politics is dictating the direction of the war. With politicians, not military leaders directing this war it is quickly becoming a quagmire.
Afghanistan is a backwards, barbaric country ruled by warring tribes, the taliban and a corrupt government and for 10 years we have tried to bring order to the chaos there. Only when the Afghans decide to unchain themselves from their ancient mentality and decide they want to step into the modern era will there be any hope for a lasting peace there.
