    We not only have invaders at our southern borders and people overstaying their visas, now we find military personnel we bring here to learn to defend their homelands don’t want to go back. They leave the military installation and try to melt into communities of their kind.

    The U.S. military may no longer track how much territory the Afghan government controls, but here's at least one definite metric of success: Afghan AC-208 pilots are no longer trained in the United States because more than 40 percent of the students training to fly the aircraft end up deserting within U.S. borders

    I wonder how many other country’s students are doing the same.

    Let's see when I was in the army at Redstone there were people from ME nations training there and that was 1982 so probably Reagan of longer like when the American revolutionary army used a German officer for drill and ceremony training.

    G. W. Bush started the Afghan war in October, 2001; we can thank his Republican ass for this continued clusterfuck.

    If we don't train them, they won't buy our jets and we can't have arms sales going to the French or Russians. That would be unamerican.

    So they get to fly planes, and then don't go back to their shithole nation? I'm not seeing where to disagree with these people.
