    US financed and supported Taliban for many years and now face the consequences of that 'friendship.' Someone agrees, another denies but there is no mistaking the facts. Every attack in Afghanistan became available because US tried to talk and make arrangements with Taliban but failed. US Command is closing eyes at Taliban movement around the country and don’t believe in Karzai and reliability of his government. And now they even turn control of Afghanistan to the enemies... No one can and will protect the Afghans and the last pre-wedding shooting just another confirmation of that fact. So what was the point of pumping billions into that useless and as it seems lost war? To send our soldiers out to die? To retaliate upon the enemy for the 9/11? Recently Taliban announced that its attacks against US and loyal forces are going to be more intensive, so they warned the locals to stay away from Coalition’s positions. US and allies can do nothing there besides quitting destroyed Afghanistan and leave it for the enemy.

    Should've gotten out 9.5 years ago, but our 2 warmongering parties aren't big on short wars.

    I can not believe that you asked those questions...you are not a patriotic American.

    The administration needed an excuse to transfer a gazillion dollars to the Milititary Industrial Complex (MIC)

    Now if the MIC believes that they have not profited enough then we will experience yet another false flag operation to convince the zombified that we need to remain there for another 10 years.

    And so it fucking goes.

    We got Bin Laden so as far as I am concerned, time to get the hell out of there. It was a shit hole before we got there and it will be a shit hole when we leave.

    Obama had no choice in the Afghanistan matter. Bush started it and he could not just end it. Obama did what he felt was right depending on the fact we were already in deep when he took office. He surge did not work because it ran the Taliban into Pakistan creating another problem. Cut our losses and get out as soon as possible and Obama has the support and let the chips fall as they may.
    Afghanistan is home of the Taliban and they will come back when we leave and we cannot do a damn thing about. Taliban is not a separate group. They welcome the Taliban because they are family.
    This entire war, Afghanistan and Iraq has been a waste of good money and young lives. American troops were use as sacrificial lambs sent to slaughter because the out come was already seen before hand. But lots of Bush cronies made lots of money off these war. Especially the Iraq war.
    Middle east has a culture and religion that will take more than US to change.
    Today was inevitable seen 10 years ago. We don't go into countries and try to change them and we will never learn. Who ask us for help?

    My problem with the president's decision to pull out 30,000 troops is the timing. You don't do it in the middle of the fighting season over there, you wait until Feb - March to start doing it. To do it in Sept just before the election smacks of political rather than military reasons. Staying a few more months might help the Afghanis clear more areas in the east along the Pakistan border.

    I agree with you, but of course, since Obama is saying lets pull out, the republicans are saying to stay. Its a sick game they play.

    10 years is enough. Time to declare "mission accomplished" and get out. How do we ask Americans to make sacrifieces at home when we spend $1 billion a week in Afghanistan?

    This was a botched operation from the word "Go". We never should have been there in the first place (Bush's fault), and we never should have upped our ante (Obama's fault). Get all of our troops and all of our money out ASAP, I say.
