Default Afghanistan to crush terrorists, well, lots of luck...

The Afghan government swears to "crush" the terrorists within their country.

Well, lots of luck folks..if you can get past the terrorists within your own government.

We've been there 19 years.
They ran Alexander the Great out of there. They ran England out of there. They ran the Soviet Union out of there, bankrupting them back to Russia.

Thus the earned title of; "The Graveyard of Empires".

We need to get out of that 15th century "war lord" country, and let'em fight.

THERE IS NOT an American in every afgani trying to get out.
They are living out their culture, and we're interfering.

I agree, it is not our fight! We need to defend Israel and let the rest of them duke it out like they have been doing forever! It isn't fixable!

I will admit that hearing the Afghan leaders saying that they are going to take care of business themselves is surprising. They don't usually man up in that manner! Saying that they are going to crush the terrorists will only provoke more of the same so they better put their big boy pants on.......believe it when I see it!

We should get out but just before we should tell them that they can do as they please in side of their country, but if any of it reaches the US or harms a US citizen we will be back and remove the trouble makes down to the last one.

Yeah!!!! Just like we did to Saudi Arabia when they attacked us on 9/11... Oh right after they attacked us we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq; not the #1 sponsor of terrorists who attack the west - when was the last time we heard of Hezbollah terrorists attacking a western country???? Anyway whatever it takes to keep the populace of America scared so the govt. can continue to do as they wish...

GW Bush was one heck of a horrible President. In terms of being destructive, he's the worst in my lifetime, which goes back to Kennedy.

Of the 19 hijackers involved in the 90/11 attack, 15 were from Saudi Arabia..that is a high percentage of the attackers.

If we tally up the attackers here in the US, who have committed mass shooting in schools, theaters, churches etc. , we would find that a very high percentage of the shooters were American.

Should we then attack America? We must learn to better understand asymmetrical warfare. We are at war with an multinational ideology, not a nation as found on a map!

The terrorists were provided basic training and mind control training in Kandahar.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planni...ber_11_attacks

Was attacking Afghanistan the proper thing to do? ..In retrospect, probably not the best thing we could have done.

Gotta stop thinking like 20 century tactics..they don't dress in uniform, so when they are caught on the field, they "play possum" as ordinary civilians.

We are not fighting this nation or that nation as shown on the map or listed on the UN roster. We are fighting a religious war, against militant, expansive Islam.

We are fighting the same war that confronted Charles the Hammer, the crusaders and El Cid !
