Whats the point unless the 4000 are wiring up enough explosives to blow that place off the map?

Turning more of Afghanistan into rubble won't do anything except waste American blood and money. What exactly are our objectives there? What are we trying to accomplish? How will we know when we're done?

Its over, it needs to stop. The war there is over man.......


ZERO reason to be there unless there is a backdoor operation bringing in revenue that we aren't privy too.

If that's the case call it like it is

Healthcare reform, tax reform, loosening gun restrictions and spending reductions? Nah, sending 4k more troops and throwing more money at Afghanistan is definitely a win.

It was only a matter of time.

They removed all the nationalists from his administration. Everyone who wants to see him as to go through Kelly who is a Lindsey Graham/McCain wet dream.

Oh we'll still get tax cuts, maybe an infrastructure bill, maybe even some gun laws but MAGA will be watered down quite a bit.

He can always say Afghanistan is known as the Graveyard of Empires for a reason, we're not going to change shit without genocide and colonization, we're pulling all of our troops out, and if the locals can't get it under control by now they aren't going to suddenly be capable tomorrow. It's their hill of manure and it's not our problem any longer.

They are multiple generations over there who have been killing outsiders since Alexander the Great. They are doing God's work every time they kill one of us or get killed in the process. We can't outlast that mindset.

19 May 2017 - The total area under opium poppy cultivation in Afghanistan is expanding, leading to a significant increase in its production, according to the latest survey report released today by UNODC.
The report reveals that the total cultivation area in Afghanistan increased by 10 per cent from 183,000 to 201,000 hectares compared to the previous year. Similarly, potential opium production saw 43 per cent increase, reaching 4,800 tons in 2016.

Napalm every inch of the poppy fields and then hit them with the strongest most lethal herbicide we have on the way out. Fuck the locals that rely on opium for income. They can learn how to farm corn and sell on the open markets and get ethanol subsidies.

Or starve.

I'm good either way.

He's going to go full neocon now that Bannon is gone. Watch him back out of building the wall. They just wore him down and seized on his PR blunders.

How pray tell is getting bogged down into a protracted, unpopular, unwinable (define a reasonable victory there) war a good way to "keep your enemies in check"

All we do is embolden and train a hostile flank if we ever have to fight in Iran

Can see both sides.

Would love to see our guys come home.

Understand maybe there are important things being done against terrorism, and our troops need more support.
