Three Republican lawmakers who have been outspoken on the war in Afghanistan are trying to push their party to start debating alternative policies and will be convening a meeting next month to start the debate.

Reps. Walter Jones (N.C.), Ron Paul (Texas) and Jimmy Duncan (Tenn.) sent a letter to every Republican House member on Monday inviting them them to a Feb. 16 briefing with Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass, retired Maj. Gen. John Batiste and Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist -- all of whom have been critical of the direction of the war.

Afghanistan has become the central focus of American foreign policy. The United States spends nearly $7 billion a month in Afghanistan alone to further the Obama Administration's stated strategic goals.

Wow I wish Ron Paul, Walter Jones and Jimmy Duncan all the best of luck possible!
This incredibly expensive war lasted too long one day after it started

It would be great if this event could be televised on Mainstream Media with majority of people watching
I think it would truly change people's perception if not the country's direction, at the very least.
