War we can believe in... wasn't that Obama' slogan... I think it was.


The agreement would allow not only military trainers to stay to build up the Afghan army and police, but also American special forces soldiers and air power to remain.

“If the job is not done, then several thousand troops, even special forces, will not be able to do the job that 150,000 troops couldn’t do. It is not possible.”

Indeed.

Elect Ron Paul or stay in Afghanistan forever. Your choice America.

I still remember when Obama was elected for president... Oh, the promises he made...

I'll close down Gitmo...

I'll pull out the troops...

yada yada...

He's gone totally backwards with what he said he'll do.

And we all got suckered into thinking he was the real deal... Never again.

Btw what's to say Ron paul won't keep his promises?

I guess this is the final nail in the coffin of Obama, considering the country is in horrible shape and they commit to a further 13 years of war for no reason.

Obama is a Neocon. They were able to get one of theirs elected as a Liberal Democrat. In reality, Neocons are Fascists. If no one challenges Obama in the primaries, then Ron Paul is the only true peace candidate running.

Barack Obama, October 27, 2007:

I will promise you this: that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home, we will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank!


Take it to the bank Americans! But, the bank won't open until 2024

That's usually how the protocol goes. We never leave. I bet in 2024 the Afghan central govt. will still be as weak as it is now. They (Afghans) just aren't into having a real government. They would rather have all their little petty warlords and Clans. They shouldn't even be classified as a real country, sorta like Pluto, they are a "dwarf country". I hope the Afghans prove me wrong, I'm not holding my breath.

I feel sorry for the troops, their families, and any young poor soul that enlists into this country's military. They are all being used and taken for fools.

The military should be used for national defense. I agree with Ron Paul on this issue

Barack Obama is a lying piece of garbage.

Afghanistan is a British war for their corporate sponsored Drug Opium trade. (The King and Queen's empire)

Obama is a lying piece of garbage. But he's the man that the clowns in this great country seem to love and admire. The history of British drug trade through Afghanistan is really well known. The "B" word is left out of any news discussing American troop movements and troop escalation and things.

I doubt that this country will exist in the year 2024. If we are here we will be eating chicken bones two day old coyote and rotten scraps on the ground. Larouche says it all, we are heading towards a dark age. Our media is ridiculously retarded on the way they report the news. A dark age is a real thing, just like a Recession or a Depression, so why doesn't the news at least talk about this? Dark age means the population will be reduced by like 50 or 60 percent, and that is because civilization collapses. If we continue fighting these British wars for the Queen then our civilization will collapse. It's drugs that's Afghanistan. British imperialist policy has been largely drugs, opium in China and Southeast asia — also including Afghanistan. Iran is oil, so it's always some kind of commodity we are fighting for. And its none of us that gets it.

If they want to exist as separate tribes, that's their business. We have no business being on their land.
