Ben Swann strikes again

I didnt know about this until weird Tube suggested it to me

so Rand Paul introduced a bill to get TFO from Afghanistan but the congress ( the senate ) last week voted to keep the Troops in Afghanistan by 68=23 vote margin, let that sink in, even though the president wants to leave Afghanistan from what Ben Swann says, the senate voted against it

so that tells me some thing, corruption is in both sides, no matter what they have in front of their names, D or R, intentions what unifies them

dont be fooled, politicians are mostly liars, if you're a democrat you know them, if you're a republican beware of them

as I mentioned several times before, im not an american but an observer from the outside, like looking at a chess board match from outside

here is Ben Swann


eta: its time to sleep in this part of the world, so see you tomorrow

This is happening for two reasons:

To get the Orange Man and to keep a presence in Afghanistan for the business interests that own congress.

Agreed. 19 years is enough.

Nineteen years is far too many, but I have a question; Doesn't the president have the authority to pull troops out of any situation? Why is an amendment to a defense bill needed? Since the senate didn't authorize an official war, what's stopping anyone from removing them? Aside from protecting poppy fields for the CIA.

Help me out here OK? Rand Paul sponsored a bill to pull out of Afghanistan. You say the Senate voted on it, 68 for and 23 against. Yet according to the list of senators voting, Paul voted nay, against the bill. So was there another bill that was made to shoot down his bill? Was a nay vote for or against staying in Afghanistan.

a reply to: PhilbertDezineck

Oh, I see now. The vote was not on the bill itself, but rather a vote on whether or not to table the bill. That is why Paul voted nay. I got it now

edit. I'm happy to report that both my state senators voted with Paul to move his bill forward.

Whilst there is a never ending supply of soldiers willing to give up their lives for their country war will be the norm.

You want to stop doing crap like being in Afghanistan for 20 odd years don't sign up to fight for uncle Sam.

This is a really crappy take.

People are always wanting the American soldier to shoulder burdens that don't belong to them.

Now you want these people to abandon the safety of their nation rather than having the people demand the end of the war and vote in reflection of the values they hold most dear. The answer isn't to abdicate more responsibility. The answer is to accept more of it.

Sure the whole thing is far more nuanced than to simply stop having a military.

My point is the abundance of soldiers, there are so many more than is nescassarry for defensive purpose, this excess allows for things to happen like in the op. You can't tell me soldiers in Afghanistan for the last 20 years are there to defend the U.S, they are there making people rich through the spoils of war.
