Afghanistan — Enough Is Enough

The Pentagon has just submitted its semi-annual report to Congress on Afghanistan, “Report on Progress Toward Security and Stability in Afghanistan,” covering the period from  April through September, and it’s same-old, same-old.

Only one of the 23 Afghan Army brigades can function independently, there is more violence now than when we began the surge two years ago, the Afghan government is hopelessly corrupt, the Taliban is still strong, and Pakistan is still providing safe havens for them.

It’s never going to get better, and we just need to get the hell out of there ASAP.  We can’t keep pouring American dollars and blood down this rat hole.  Drones and special forces, people, not 68,000 U. S. troops defending nothing in the middle of nowhere.

    I agree. I have lost too many on wars with no purpose. Soldiers are to defend and protect borders. Not to police an world where they have lost their minds and way.
