    It appears that the Afghans do not honor nor appreciate the help our U S govt is giving there to help. They have killed to many of those who go there to defend their rights and freedom. If the U S walks away, the country will be overrrun with the faction that is behind it in the first place.

    This problem was not addressed (Charlie Rose tried to help) over a decade ago, were they supplied with the arms that are killing our troops? Where and when does it all stop? What is the answer?

    Is Afghanistan a wise expenditure of lives and taxes? It's hard to make a case.

    In my view, we need to get the heck outa there. These deaths are for nothing. I Would not go or send a son or daughter over there to possibly get killed. Those guys don't like us and never will. If they need to fight and kill someone let them do it to themselves.

    Supposedly, we're there to help them implement democracy. They don't want democracy. They are too wrapped up in Islam and Shariah and have been for more than two thousand years.

    And the same goes for Iraq.

    Furthermore, we need to refuse any immigration from these countries and all other countries around the world where Islam is predominant. If we don't we will eventually be sorry. They can destroy from within as we can see in many countries in the Mideast. And they are in no hurry.

    We need to wise up. Will we? Not with our current occupant in the White House.
