1492 INVASION AND OCCUPATION. RIGHT WING EXTREMIST want us to stay in Iraq and Afghanistan for ever. Like we have done in other countries we have invaded and occupied for half a century. If we dont the will make friend with the Taliban and Iran. So what? Maybe they should. As long as we are there on Islamic land they will never have peace because radical Islam teaches that as long as the infidels, US, in on Islamic land they should be killed. Iraq and Afghanistans only chance of peace depend on our leaving completely. We cannot baby sit them forever. Old habit die hard. We have a long standing habit of invading and occupying countries and never leaving. In 1492 RWE invaded and occupied this country and forgot to leave. It is way past time to withdraw from all the countries we have invaded and occupied. Beginning with America.
