We will never leave Afghanistan! There was an excellent article in the NY Times several weeks ago on the wealth of natural resources that exist in that country. The country is loaded with minerals and natural resources and makes that country of great interest to many countries. The US has no interest in making the lives of the Afghanese better. War is about money; in this case natural resources.
If that country had industry and people had the opportunity to be employed there would be less interest in religious wars etc. Dignity, employment and self-reliance go a long war in a countries welfare etc. This is a war of claiming a part of the prosperity that might lay ahead for this country.

I wish the Neocons could be pacified and somehow a "win" could be attained.
lol 'neocons' are not in charge. havent ben for almost 2 yrs
did you even read what I said?
whoever is in charge is not the issue, the idea of nation building and spreading a US form of democracy is what is currently being attempted in Afghanistan and if you do some reading you'd find that is at the heart of a neocon agenda
Loc: a nice place
i read what you wrote. obama is n charge not a neocon... he says what goes like shrub did. or are you calling bo and all the other dems in charge neocons? repubs dont have a chance at getting anything done toght now
Al Quaida is out of any hole in the earth and country that will have them. They are even in America because they know our laws and departments are so red taped, non intercommunicational, logjamed that they can walk unnoticed through us as water through a sieve unfortunately. Their grand mission is to convert the worlds peoples to Islam or slit their throats in the finality. Paul
We are there because of ignorance or greed in high places. We need to pack up and get out of every country on the planet and all come home to become border guards, then begin sifting out foreign low life from America's society leaving only clean upright foreigners to work here and work for their families well being and paying for all their own services consumed. I don't think all foreigners should be working for citizenship of the U.S. either. Many love their own countries and hold allegiance there. There should be room for these people too in America but they must pay their own way. Paul
