Ok, seriously? I don't even know what to say about this, we've been there for 8 yrs + and many Afghans have no idea why we invaded them, no one stopped for a second to explain it?

Is it really any wonder why they fight to preserve what they thought is/was their government? According to them, we more or less randomly woke up one day and decided to begin a seemingly endless war in their homeland without cause. It makes the job of spreading endless stories about the evil U.S. too easy.
