I have to agree with this article from Policolnews.com. It looks like we've committed ourselves to another dumb war of attrition for the upcoming decade. I believe we need to pull out right now. Our presence is not accomplishing anything good.
surprise May Day Announcement live from Kabul, Afghanistan a country
steeped in the illegal opium drug trade, a country George W. Bush
invaded on October 7, 2001 was the scene for President Obama’s
had to make an unannounced visit today for his own security and he
arrived to sign an agreement assuring another 12 years of the
US military presence in Afghanistan until the year 2024.That
indicates the amount of security and progress made after 11 years of
US occupancy, will another 12 years make a difference?
entire facade that the US is winning the war in Afghanistan is a
farce, when a series of attacks in recent weeks proves the country is
yet unstable and likely to remain divided amongst tribal rivalry.
Americans will be dead by then of the incessant poverty that has
spread over America, some will die after knowing this country has
been at war for 23 years of their lives. The US has and will be in
Afghanistan for 23 years at the end of Obama’s agreement and at a
cost in today’s dollar value of 2 Billion dollars per week!
the next 12 years at that rate the United States will have spent
1.248 Trillion dollars protecting a corrupted country that will never
have peace, never stop harboring terrorist and will never be any
better than it is today from that investment.
Obama has captured Osama Bin Laden but he was not in Afghanistan, he
was found and killed in Pakistan. Essentially, Obama has continued
with the supremely colossal military mistakes of his predecessor
George W. Bush and has had no spine in confronting the facts of life,
we simply do not have “The Money”. Obama is compounding the
errors of Bush and the mission was wrong from the beginning on
October 7, 2001.
only did Obama sympathize with Bush’s invasion he augmented the
numbers by ordering an additional 33,000 troops in 2009 into
Afghanistan. Obama also kept Canada, the UK involved and other
countries to chip into the effort, causing deficits in both
US Dragged Other Countries into Major Deficits for Afghanistan
and the UK both are facing crushing deficits which in turn are
causing drastic cuts to social pensions, healthcare and the loss of
jobs for their efforts in Afghanistan. Both countries are facing
increasing opposition to Afghanistan involvement and their losses are
into the billions of dollars. For every dollar plus the interest
charges, that does make it’s way to Afghanistan, it is one
dollar less going to student loans, infrastructure, jobs, green
energy, education, pensions and to the domestic economy.
a Democrat who ran on ending he war, ending the deficit, ending
corporate influence -President Obama has failed on all accounts and
continues to enrich the military industrial complex with riches
beyond compare, another gold mine in 12 more years of military
occupation of Afghanistan.
Gets Rich off of War
military corporations, the military industrial complex, companies
that make bombs, tanks, bullets, guns, drones and all the hardware,
uniforms all say Thank You Very Much to Barack Obama for giving us
another 12 years of guaranteed profits by their best buyer: The US
he would increase the length of the war, without permission without
consultation with the American public, whom he is supposedly serving,
this comes as a slap in the face to most Democrats. Coupled with the
expense of Iraq, the Return on Investment is the same: Nothing.
Want the War Ended Now
recent poll shows 75% or more of the American public want the wars to
end, they want their money to be invested in American poverty,
education, infrastructure and the economy to produce jobs. These
results show both Republicans and Democrats and Independents want the
wars ended period. The negativity of wars include the returning
wounded which also drains the economy plus the shedding of US blood,
in an ungrateful, hostile country that the Russians left several
the NY Times: “Among
Democrats, 68 percent said the war was going somewhat or very badly,
compared with 38 percent in November. But the poll found that
Republicans were more likely to want to stay in Afghanistan for as
long as it would take to stabilize the situation: 3 in 10 said the
United States should stay, compared with 2 in 10 independents and 1
in 10 Democrats. ”
war mongers in the Republican party namely Sen. John McCain and Peter
King both applauded President Obama for his agreement to add another
12 years of profiteering for their campaign donors. One can only
assume Barack Obama the said President that acts without public
approval, did the same damn thing. Tonight the MIC will be partying
more than the Government Services did in Vegas, they will party like
this he will pay at the polls -for turning his back on Americans, by
inducing enormous deficits, by borrowing and financing a war on a
credit card where the banker China, is only too happy to see the
misbegotten path this President is taking this country.
announcement came as a shock to most Americans, when the cost is so
very high, to the tune of 2 billion dollars per week that is costing
2 billion per week, for 52 weeks per year, for 12 years = 1.248
Trillion dollars going to a foreign country who’s main export is
Trillion Dollars Would Wipe Out the Entire US Student Debt
same 1.2 Trillion that would wipe out the entire student debt of
American students at home. Where are the priorities here? Where on
earth does Obama get off draining the economy, refusing to end the
financial benefits to the military industrial complex? Where did he
get anyone’s permission?
country is already in 15 trillion dollars of debt from which it will
never recover and another financial global crisis is eminently
predicted by the looks of the EU which is unable to stabilize Europe.
Until another 12 years more American soldiers will be deployed
killed, and lives will be destroyed for what?
military has been on their 4th, 5th and 6th tours and is exhausted
both morally and spiritually and when they come home, they will need
enormous expensive health care.
again, Osama Bin Laden wins – he’s decimated the US economy for
another 12 years. Enjoy it folks, Romney would have done the same.
