    Aside the fact Karzai, as usual, is being a dweeb, ‘cause Condi hasn’t got him paid off yet?, it’s to give us the OPPORTUNITY to retain troops and BASES, if we WISH, until 2024, not a settled fact of keeping combat troops that long. BUT, best to get out of Afghanistan, even if a permanent base to “control” the region WAS the original plan when “W” set Karzai up to begin with.

    I like the fact that we can drone these terrorists at any time.

    In the First British Afghan War, the Brits sent a huge BEF into Afghanistan to support a very weak, corrupt Afghan partner. Only one Brit made it out alive (and their Afghani partner was also killed).


    So Bush, jr and Obama have done MUCH better than that.


    (OK, so in the Second British Afghan War, the Brits allied with a strong, regal, more-or-less honest Afghani partner, helped him become king, and accomplished all their goals at very low cost in pounds and British lives, but they had learned from the first war, and the US had to start from scratch. Now the US has a weak, corrupt Afghani partner, one who’s thinking, maybe he’d like us to leave, and if he doesn’t come around soon, we’ll just have to kill him and install a weaker, more corrupt partner, until we manage to replicate the results of the First British Afghan War.)

    "I like the fact that we can drone these terrorists at any time.

    Is that a statement of support for the Obama Administration’s use of drones?

    I say we empty our prisons and send the inmates there! It’d be an improvement over the locals. At least our felons know how to speak english and what indoor plumbing is!

    @Enoki

    Why would you need to speak English in Afghanistan?

    Australia turned out pretty good… And, it’d be better than dealing with the bunch that’s there now…

    @Debt Free

    And naturally you’ve enlisted so that you can put yourself at risk to personally deliver the jihadists to their virgins, right?
    …ha ha ha, of course not. It’s the job of other people to die to enforce your hatred, isn’t it, Bravery Free?

    Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while.
    So yes, Barry is batting 1 for 93 on important issues.

    Doing bad things well isn’t a positive.
    -
    What the US is doing in Afghanistan promotes those jihadists and those out for revenge for the USA and NATO killing their family members. Average 6 revengers created for every one innocent person killed. Not good numbers.

    @Enoki

    Why don’t we leave the Afghanis alone instead of going all Empire on them? Live and let live over military destruction in the imperial sense.

    You do know that only you Bible Believing Cons call our president that. Why? Since he is just a man as Saint Reagan was.

    The Congress is at 7% on the like scale. Both parties with the Tea Party fanatics despised the most out of all of them. Lowest of the low.

    WW2 has been over for decades, as has Te Korean War, yet we still have Troops in both Countries. We will be in Afghanistan many years beyond 2024
