The deal reached today by Nato and Afghanistan will give complete control to Afghanistan troops to protect their own country instread of Americans sacrificing our blood for them.

Shortly after Obama wins re-election at the end of this year 2012
in Mid 2013 the control of the nation will be officially handed over to Afghan soldiers.

So far 15 thousand soldiers have come home.

At the end of the summer a total of 33 thousand soldiers will be home.

In mid 2013 control of Afghanistan will no longer be in NATO hands.

Im in the military, and 15,000 of us have not come home. We are either still there, or just put on a plane and brought to another country bordering Afganistan. Deployments in the last 3 years havnt even begun to slow down whatsoever. And they will not slow down after 2013, 2014, 2015 or beyond that. Get your facts straight.

From Afghanistan 15 thousand have come home already!

33 thousand total will be home by the end of the summer.

And by the end of next year the Afghanistan war will be over.

Just like Iraq is over.

The definition is out of Afghanistan and when you are in the military its always possible you are re-deployed. Being sent home then re-deployed is not the same as staying in Afghanistan.

I'm sorry but you are extremely misinformed. But I will let you continue to take Obama's word for it. He has never lied to us before right?

Which means instability in Afghanistan should be expected about a week after the last troops are pulled out...

Good.......Now Vote Ron Paul to make sure they never go back again.!!!!!

As far as Obamna pulling troops out now? Its a clever ploy..why didnt he pull them out 4 years ago when he promised? He does it now a few months before an election. But i suppose 4 more years of war for the MIC will get him some campaign funds.
This will work in Romneys favour though in the long run as the Taliban will overwhelm the country within days of the withdrawal ending,then Romney will say "I told you so" and the bible bashing anti muslem repub hillbillys will all rally round him.

Yawn! Didn't we hear this in '08 from Obama? And now you really think he will do it? Another lie to add to the list.

Don't be a sucker and get fooled twice.

Yes, but nearly two thousand of them were in bags and caskets. And most of those since the surge in 2008. Didn't Obama call this the "good" war?

TPTB want war in Iran. How can we send our boys to Iran if we are in Afghanistan? Hmmm? I do not trust anything this admin does and I know he wants to be reelected and he knows his left base is mad at him for continuing the wars so he will pretend for them.
I don't trust him and I don't trust you.

No, actually we didn't hear this from '08 Obama, what you heard from '08 Obama and conveniently forgot, (read: The GOP rewrote history again on you) was:



He campaigned on putting MORE troops in Afghanistan. He NEVER said he was going to end the war in Afghanistan. Do you get that FOX News lies to you ALL THE TIME? Obama campaigned on adding MORE troops to the war in Afghanistan, but somehow, some way, you twisted in your mind to think that he campaigned on ending both wars. He didn't. He did exactly what he campaigned on, he added more troops to Afghanistan and now, it's time to get out.


And now you really think he will do it? Another lie to add to the list.


Except he DIDN'T LIE, he did what he campaigned on, but you still won't believe it. Even if you watch that short video where he said he was going to put MORE troops in Afghanistan in '08, you still will convince yourself that he lied when he didn't.


Don't be a sucker and get fooled twice.


So, doing exactly what he campaigned on makes people that voted for him a sucker? How does that work?

Maybe get your facts straight before you type something and look foolish.

to fight a war, one must have a legitimate basis for the war.

disagreeing with someone based on politics and religion or nationality, etc. is not a legal basis for a war. if it were anyone could wage war on anyone else and legally occupy their homes. contrary to the belief of a few, physical might does not make right in this world.

the only plausible explanation for the Taliban, for example, being able to fight as long as they have is that they must have purchased a legitimate reason at a second hand store or something or work for someone who does have a legitimate claim to lawfully hold power and govern Afghanistan.

anyway...that legitimate reason has expired and the war has ended in a very permanent way.

no presidential candidate has any say so in this matter and if they try and get some say so their careers would probably end.

The same way we sent our boys to Iraq when we were fighting a war in Afghanistan. The American people are tired of war. These two wars were costly both in lives and our budget.

One would think, however, Bush/Cheney proved that wrong with Iraq.

Except that's been the reason for wars throughout all of history. Having a legal basis for a war is an absurd modern idea. Humans have warred with each other since people decided to band together and call themselves civilized.


the only plausible explanation for the Taliban, for example, being able to fight as long as they have is that they must have purchased a legitimate reason at a second hand store or something or work for someone who does have a legitimate claim to lawfully hold power and govern Afghanistan.


Afghanistan is and always has been a very tribal country. And they have an insanely long history of fighting foreign invaders.

It took Alexand er the Great 3 years to subdue Afghanistan, after he died his successor in the region, Seleucus tried to keep control of the area, but eventually his troops wanted to go back home to Greece and it returned to tribal rule.

Genghis Khan tried, he depopulated major cities, but the people just went back to an agrarian rural society.

Rome, the USSR, and now the US have all tried and ultimately failed (and will fail) to change Afghanistan. When you have a history of over 2000 years of people showing up trying to take over your country, you tend to learn how to best defeat them. The Afghanistan way to defeat an invader is through attrition. They obviously aren't going anywhere and they know that eventually your going to have to go home, so they just wear away at you till you give up and leave. Then they just go back to governing themselves how they see fit.

The only reason that we fought the Taliban is that they were the ones that cooperated with Al Qaeda and were the largest faction in Afghanistan. They even didn't really rule Afghanistan, the warlords rule their separate areas and either work with the Taliban or trade with them.


anyway...that legitimate reason has expired and the war has ended in a very permanent way.


Yep, I completely agree, any real reason we have for being in Afghanistan is dead and buried at sea, it's time for us to get out. We aren't going to really bring democracy to Afghanistan, they will rule themselves how they have always seen fit.

It would be very unwise for the US to keep any forces in Afghanistan, because the Afghanis will just eventually kill them off.

By the end of the summer. The end of August 33 thousand troops will have returned from Afghanistan for good. That is right and the media is not talking about this.

Obama already ended the Iraq war.

Now he is ending the Afghanistan war.

This is why we the people elected Obama.
