    .

    There would be zero dead if we had never gone in. There would be zero amputees, zero grieving families, zero children missing their Dad, zero soldiers spending the rest of their lives in mental anguish, hundreds of billions of dollars to work with.

    Talk to the guy who put us in that medieval shit hole in the first place. No, not Saddam; no, not bin Laden; no, not the UN; no, not NATO; no, not Barack Obama; no, not Kim Kardashian.

    Talk to George W Bush. We all know who put us in there, who put us in Iraq.

    Duh, no one complained until Booosh wasted the easy victory in Afghanistan to go on a wild goose chase in Iraq. He was a total CATASTROPHE, and the dupes are fools...

    It's not statism, it's plain intelligence, dittohead.

    Potential Afghan war plan would replace thousands of US troops with special ops teams
    April 12, 2012 WASHINGTON – Adm. Bill McRaven, the head of U.S. special operations, is mapping out a potential Afghanistan war plan that would replace thousands of U.S. troops with small special operations teams paired with Afghans to help an inexperienced Afghan force withstand a Taliban onslaught as U.S. troops withdraw.

    We never should have invaded Iraq and ignored Afghanistan. How many other deaths were because Republicans let Bin Laden go?

    Yeah well this is one problem I have with Obama.
    However we should have been out of Afganistan 9 years ago or more.
