Vice President Biden is correct, whe have given and are giving Afganistan a shot
at being a free country (free of being under the thumb of the Taliban). Now we
are leaving in 2014 period, (if President Obama is re-elected). Afganistan may
succeed or they may fail, it is really up to them, but we are leaving.
So, how is Afghanistan much different than our own capitol? Corruption there
has kept us from making much real progress, too. And that will continue until
Citizens United has been overturned, term limits are in place, and campaign
finance reform with real teeth has been enacted.
Gee, what a surprise.A region that has been defined by violence and
corruption and in-tribe fighting isn't a peaceful Democracy just because
America asked them to "play nice?"Did we learn nothing from
the British who occupied this region? The Russians? Apparently
not!We got what we wanted and that was Osama. Lets leave Afghanistan
like TODAY. IF they cannot stand on their own 2 feet then let them fall. Daddy
American can't constantly fund other countries. I'm tired of making
millionaires of corrupt punk Arab leaders with my tax money. Keep American money
