Unplugged: McChrystal's Warning In Afghanistan
US general warns of Afghan failure
Analysis: Obama war choice: escalate or scale back
Where the hell is Afghanistan's Lashkar? Unify Afghanistan take back your country? NATO go home! Scale back! Get out! We keep hearing how tough Afghani's are. Prove it! We keep hearing how we must get to Taliban moderates and Afghan moderates well get with it do it now and let them fight for their country. Moderate tribesmen in parts of militant-ravaged north-west Pakistan are challenging Taliban extremists threatening to overrun their area, in what will develop into a mass resistance movement. They will succeed I have faith!
Pakistan has formed Lashkar's, Lashkar's are armed military camps and the fighters volunteering to join them to fight and kill the Taliban fight for the Government and love their country they gladly leave their families and fight for nothing, eradicating the Taliban is their sole goal. One of the tribal leaders said there is a civil war, the people against the Taliban.
Those at this Jirga came with their Russian machine guns from fighting in Afghanistan in the 80s talking of the horrors they saw committed by the Taliban in the Swat valley and vowed to kill them all.More than 10,000 volunteered to join. Please watch the video this is impressive! Pakistani tribesmen form their own Lashkar's to defeat the Taliban
Afghanistan is going to have to do the same thing. This is what it has come to. You stand up and fight for the life you want or let yourself be enslaved by Muslim extremists. General McChrystal says we need more troops in Afghanistan or we will fail. Fail at what? Joining the Graveyard of Nations? We have already succeeded! Our original goal was to unseat the Taliban
and deny Bin Laden a safe haven. We accomplished that so get out with our heads held high!
I thought we weren't in the business of Nation building? Afghanistan does not want a centralized Government they as you know are tribal and do not want one. Funny but Pakistan is largely tribal but they want a central Government and freedom from the Taliban to continue to have their tribal customs and freedoms and are fighting for it!
That is what Afghanistan must do! America and NATO must get the hell out! We have been their over 8 years, twice as long as WW2! If Afghanistan wanted freedom from the Taliban they would already be trained and fighting for it instead of just letting themselves be killed as pawns. Get rid of corrupt Karzai! Why are the Afghan's not forming Lashkar's and killing the Taliban if they want their freedom from them?
* Have a fair election, get rid of Karzai,Feed and supply Afghani Lashkar to fight if they want their freedom as Pakistan is and get the hell out! That is the only answer not less or more troops. Our soldiers did their job leave now with heads held high not our tails between our legs like in Saigon!
