    Bring our troops home, and see what kind of bribe the Taliban gives him.

    The Taliban up until they could not control Al Quaida, were our allies. But like in “1984,” they became our enemies. Now the Taliban were surrogates and proxies for Pakistan to keep their wild neighbor in hand. Then the USA lumped the Taliban with Al Qaida together in the usual ham fisted knuckle head way of our State Department. There is more like Karzai was an official of Unocal and hand picked to be our president of Afghanistan. He is guarded by mercenaries not his own people. It is said he controls about 6 blocks of Kabul, the capital.

    Karzai is Condi’s pet. While he picked the members of the Loya Jirga, most Afghans hate him. Take him out of Kabul, and dump him alongside the road. Let the Afghans handle him.

    Kick us out of Afghanistan PLEASE.
    .
    Besides President Obama can continue to listen in and rain down death from above, just like all future presidents can with the leadership he showed in the matter.

    IT’S ALL GOOD

    A trillion bux in Iraq.
    Another trillion bux in Afghanistan.
    Heck, it’s not like we could’ve used the money here!

    Without drones, there would be boots on the ground, with many thousands more killed. Also, Obama didn’t invent drones. They were around before 2008 and they will be around in 2016. Personally, I do believe we should get out Afghanistan and hope that will happen soon. However, I don’t have all the info of a US prez.

    Times are tough. Even the Red Rascal’s advances are now gift certificates for Amazon and Albertson’s.

    the MIlitary/Corporate Welfare Complex needs Karzai/Loya Jurga to keep Afghanistan a “theatre” for as long as possible. they certainly don’t spend money here in America.
    isn’t that why we elect Congress? to keep the Military Corporate Complex going?

    @montessoriteacher

    You act like I don’t like armed drones.
    I want a couple for myself.
    GWB would have enjoyed them.
    I hope Hillary gets to use them, don’t know how Bill feels.

    GWB had drones.

    @Beleck3

    I read in the paper yesterday where we bought a billion dollars’ worth of Russian Mi-17 helicopters for the Afghan army. A formerly secret report said Boeing’s was better and Pennsylvania Senators were unhappy but if you are going to arm a past and potentially future opponent, it makes sense to give him inferior tools, even if it doesn’t support your Military Corporate Complex.
    Besides, China paid for it unless we repay their generous loans.

    @montessoriteacher

    Yes, he did, just hadn’t worked out the legal justification to use them against American citizens.
    .
    Understand they are wunnerful killing machines and I want our local sheriff to have one, but every time they ate used against citizens of other nation, that is just as much an act of war as invading with “boots on the ground” is. Since Pakistan has nuclear weapons, the right government — past or future — might express their displeasure in kind.
    If not them, someone else might.

    So conservatives will now defend “American citizens” who are known enemy combatants so long as Obama is the one dealing with them. Those American citizens who were killed by drones were not Boy Scouts…

    Is that a picture of Red Rascal/Jeff on her wall? Does she have a crush with (one of) him?

    Obama and his Sec of State have suggested that the drone program should be part of DoD and therefore subject to military motivations and disclosure, rather than the covert intelligence program it is now. Agree or disagree with their decisions, recognize that they struggle with the moral and legal framework of the program as it exists. Will the next Pres be so discerning?
