I am glad that US troops will be leaving Afghanistan soon. Thank you President Obama. I am skeptical that the Afghan army can keep terrorists out of their country.

More deaths in Chicago then Afghanistan.

Afghanistan was a target by the Russians and if it had been another country, another stan that overtook them, we would most likely would not have been involved. However, we got involved and helped and supported people like Osama bin Laden to defeat, somewhat, the Russians. The Afghan people didn't have a solidarity and even today is more of a tribal area with a national government. Great Britain sure made a problem for almost all of that area in how they divided up their areas, peoples, language and religion.

We should be glad our nation had principles at the time and actually broke away and became a separate nation. The war of 1812 gave us another chance to keep free from their laws and order, even after the Louisiana purchase. We have a great history of wanting principles and freedom, included. We still existed after our civil war due to divine intervention and a lot of blood, sweat and tears.

We helped give our time and talents to Afghanistan and the will have their opportunity to show what they are made of. The vacuum of our presence will bring in other forces to play in their land.

Thank you President Obama.

For cleaning up another mess by Republican President, George W. Bush.

Somebody is obsessed with George Bush.

Any more cleaning up will result with this country at the landfill.
