How much longer until we bring the troops home?

The Bush/Cheney wars have proven to be criminally wrong in Iraq and insufficient in Afghanistan.

Al-Qaida is a shadow of its former self and Pakistan has begun defending its territory on its own.

Now it’s dawning on some of our leaders that the Taliban may not be the enemy. Again, like in Vietnam, we are interfering in a civil war.

These countries are mired in the 13th century and we cannot force 21st century morals and democracies on them. They don’t get it and we are wasting lives and resources.

We’ve wasted billions of dollars that could have been used inside our country. We have lost countless lives of not only Americans but innocent civilians for no real purpose.

We cannot stop these people from killing each other so let’s just get out of their way.

Let’s pay off the poppy growers and eliminate or control that problem, use drones on al-Qaida and engage with countries with centralized governments.
