    Default Remind Me Again Why We Are In A'Stan!

    A newly recruited Afghan village policeman opened fire on his American allies on Friday, killing two U.S. service members minutes after they handed him his official weapon in an inauguration ceremony. It was the latest in a disturbing string of attacks by Afghan security forces on the international troops training them.

    Obama and Romney have no plans for ending our disastorous policy in A'stan! So, remind me was it the Taliban that attacked us on 9/11. Al Qeda has moved on to Pakistan, Egypt, Syria and few other dumps in the mideast!.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    First, RP never suggested we invade A'stan or Iraq and rebuild those crap-holes. He was for bring OBL to justice. Given the current situation, he would say; "no more American lives and treasure wasted" on a bad Foreign Policy!

    Now, if you RP supporters could have just gotten him some votes... you could enact his policy. Unfortunately, you will just have to be satisfied with him being a footnote in history...

    RP may have lost the beauty contest but his message lives on and the movement he created is only getting bigger!

    everyone wants out of A'stan...now getting out without getting a bunch of guys killed is another feat in itself...First they have to cut off financial aid to crooks like Karzaid, then we need to draw down the troops but in a safe military thought out way...and although it may seem of no consequence to many, you have to do it and try and save face or its Viet Nam all over again....we didnt come in overnite and you cant expect to leave overnite...
