We know from history that our leaving Iraq left a vacuum that was filled by ISIS.

Do we repeat that same in Afghanistan?

Honest question, not trying to be a dick.


And what created that vacuum?

Because it didn't exist pre-American intervention.

Shouted by those "small-government," clowns.

This is common knowledge.

you know what's interesting to me is that during obama time it was said that 10,000 troops need to stay in afghanistan.
he only kept 5500, now trump sending 3900. seems that someone is listening to the pentagon.

I'm for getting out of the Middle East altogether! Let the people of these countries and their neighbors solve their own problems! We have enough problems here at home. We can sure use the billions of dollars were wasting in the Middle East on providing healthcare for Millions of Americans. Instead of being in the business of killing people and destroying infrastructure, we could be saving lives here at home!

Does this mean a larger surge? More than the 4K???
