Why keeps spending billions are a fight that will never end, we could really use that money back in the states!
I can only hope that a business man like Trump will see this as a bad investment.

I think I remember a president saying that we won a war. I am trying to find that speech. I'm thinking he might of said we won the afgan war or maybe war against the taliban.
Our last Republican President. Even he doesn't like Trump.
Although Bush stated at the time "Our mission continues" and "We have difficult work to do in Iraq," he also stated that it was the end to major combat operations in Iraq. A banner stating "Mission Accomplished" was used as a backdrop to the speech yet it was requested by the crew and referred specifically to the aircraft carrier's 10-month deployment and not the war itself. Bush's assertion—and the sign itself—became controversial after guerrilla warfare in Iraq increased during the Iraqi insurgency. The vast majority of casualties, both military and civilian, occurred after the speech.
without constant funding and training from Western powers, there would be no effective or dangerously widespread terrorism in the Middle East or anywhere else.
