    Why are we occupying Afghanistan?

    Honestly, there is nothing there worth our blood and treasure. We went there to kick the shit out of the Taliban and that was mostly accomplished the first few weeks. We should pull out and simply return when necessary, like was done with the Barbary Coast. You don't need a permanent presence.

    Has Obama ended any wars? Did he close Gitmo? Did he do a single thing he promised with regard to the wars?

    Obama = George Bush so far as conduct of the wars is concerned.

    The Left was bamboozled, snookered....tricked.

    Apparently Dumbo is a war mongering chicken hawk - with a Nobel Peace Prize.
     
  3. obama would love to not have the war problem around his neck but he was convinced by the powers that be that america can never be seen as defeated in battle. in order to save face it seems we will continue on until we go broke.
    most are not happy about it but the only consolation is the fact that if john mccain and caribou barbi had been elected we would probably be in iran too by now.

    Someone told Obama that there is a lot of lithium in Afghanistan for his green energy so he is going to make them a state. He plans to add a few more states since he thinks we have 58 states.
