Taliban Exploit Openings in NeglectedDeprived of jobs and government services, people in Baghlan Province are turning to the Taliban for speedy justice and work.
WikiLeaks 'has blood on its hands' over Afghan war logs, claim US officials But so doesn't the US!
I admit that so far what wiki leaks leaked was old news for most of us but if the US was smart they would not be downplaying the news as they are. The news is old but the message has been sent and heard if it wasn't already, do not work with the US and NATO or you will be betray and outed by wiki leaks and killed by insurgents.
Afghanistan is unwinnable period unless we declare our job well done and hand control over to Afghanistan like the Brits are and like them get out! We can then observe from a distance see what they do with it and monitor the situation with drones and reliable intelligence sources if there is such a thing.
See what they build with corrupt Karzai and the other drug lords, and the Taliban and other tribes. Any way you look at it we other fish to fry with Somalia, Yemen, and God knows where else or what is going to crop up next. Obama is backing a failed policy in a failed country as we all know. Leave India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, to their own demise. Pakistan and Afghanistan have proven they want our money not our military help. Time to say good bye and good luck!
Events just keep getting worse and worse and what little support there was for Karzai and a so called Democracy is all but gone and riots are breaking out calling for Karzai's head. For years now I kept saying we can not listen to the so called experts and add more troops. We had to listen to Max Cleland former U.S. Senator who lost both legs and right forearm following injuries inflicted by a fellow soldier's grenade in the Vietnam War. He warned we must get out now and instead Obama ads 30,000 more troops to another lost cause.
There's war fatigue in America. It's affecting our psychology. I understand that. This is an ugly war. It's a war in which an enemy will kill innocent men, women and children in order to achieve a political objective. You have to say what side are we talking about? We always hear Afghanistan being compared to Vietnam.
listening to the radio I heard that Lyndon Johnson was told he could not win militarily for the first time in 1966. 95% of all the names on the Vietnam war "wall" memorial were put on there as a result of continuing the war after he was told he couldn't win militarily in 1966. Bush ignored Afghanistan creating a crisis situation that Obama insists on making worse. We are mirroring Vietnam and worse in every way, including in this respect. I hoped Obama would pull out now but now I see another Saigon!
