This is getting ridiculous and I again call for our country to pull our men and women out of this fight unless we get serious about Afghanistan. There are lists of appropriate terms of engagement that handcuff our troops and keep them from finishing this fight. The Obama Administration does not recognize exactly who our enemies are either by changing the War On Terrorism to the War With Al Qaeda. We are fighting Jihadists that represent many different groups. One of those groups is the Taliban.
Recently, Pakistan captured the Taliban number two leader, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, with the help of United States Intelligence. Instead of thanking Pakistan and the U.S., Afghan President Hamid Karzai is angry. He had plans to hold a peace conference and Baradar was to attend. Karzai has for months made his intentions of working with the Taliban known. The moment I heard Karzai make such remarks, I was done with this false nation building. Afghanistan cannot be restored to its former self with the Taliban leading, in any way. And common sense tells us that the minute the Americans are gone, the Taliban will push Karzai out or bring him over to their side because Karzai is corrupt.
As long as the Afghan leader wants to make peace with the group responsible for harboring, training, funding and helping in ever way possible the 9/11 terrorists and the group responsible for stoning women in soccer fields and the streets, then we should have no troops aiding that country. But that will not happen with Barack Hussein Obama at the helm of the military. He held a phone conference with Karzai yesterday and reiterated his desire for reconciliation. Perhaps he thought that he was discussing ObamaCare with Karzai?
It is time to stop wasting the efforts of our troops and they should not have to give their lives for this.
