    Agreed. But pull out slowly and manage from a far. It’s easier said than done.

  2. This is a dilemma. Pull the troops out of Afghanistan & the Taliban Man wins. Stay & America continues to bleed young blood & monies. What to do?

    • @P J Cut and run as usual.

    • urbanimage : Yeah! Cut & run & make a mess for others to try to clean up after!

    • @P J It’s despicable but that’s the American way.

    • Leave, and let the Taliban know that every pound of opium found in the U.S. and traced to Afghanistan equals a ton of bombs, dropped in Afghanistan on a location of our choice. Once or twice and they will grow pomegranates – less hassle. In the meantime, pursue, arrest, and prosecute all the deep state actors who cashed in on the herion/opium trade.

    • @Bill Tierney Opium production went down under the Taliban. It started to increase after the US invasion. The US turned a blind eye to the Norther Alience’s increasing production of Opium inorder to keep them sweet and fight the Taliban..

  3. Iran Deal was JUNK. They were able to make BILLIONS. What does it take to BUY anything for a Nuke? BILLIONS. Not only that they SELF INSPECTED. My God. take the deal back, money supply limited and then no funds to buy anything.

  4. what duty??? just billions wasted …well someone made a lot of money from this mess..but the regular working joe…how did we benefit from that war?

      ABEZETHIBOU Nothing man, out children our people were sent to die on foreign soil.

    • Well…Its quite simple….Just google the top 100 Federal Contractors of 2019 and then you will see where all of that money went. I believe president Dwight Eisenhower said it best…”Beware of the Military Industrial Complex”.

  5. Afghanistan has been a mess for over a century. The British screwed themselves in the late 19th century, then let India and Pakistan deal with the problem of spill over into their countries. Russia thought Afghanistan could be a communist satellite state in the 1980s they failed and left the Taliban (Muslim hillbillies) in charge and now it’s our turn to admit Afghanistan is still a f**king mess!

  6. why dont you worry about all the drug addicts and homeless in seattle inslee ? frigging loser.

  7. Our duity?….No, we are cutting our losses. We are selling out the Afghan government because they couldn’t eliminate the Taliban (even with our help). So now we have decided to side with the Taliban…..We are going to give the Taliban arms in exchange for them siding with the Afghan government to eliminate IS and as soon as that’s done the Taliban is going to use those weapons to seize control of the country from the Afghan government and establish a Taliban state.

    • Dude, in afghanistan, nobody recognises the “afghan government” (america’s puppets) as a legitimate goverment. Just leave and never come back.

  8. noting do anything about Iran trump break deal that was a big mistake and put in-country in sanction

  9. As usual Trump fks up yet again. I don’t care who you vote for Iran WAS adherering to Obamas treaty. And why wouldn’t they folks!!?? iffff they even tried to amaas womd there’d be a big hole where Iran used to be. Besides that Trade between us was flowing along nicely benefiting both countries. But? Trump just couldn’t leave it alone now could he? The Iran leader summed it up brilliantly when he tapped his temple saying There’s a lunatic in the w house.WHY??? Because there IS A Brain dead manchild lunatic in the potus’s chair just tearing up Anything Obama introduced out of brattish childish spite. Trumps Always been so deeply jealous of Obama and his achievements. He was about to come into office when the GFC hit NOT after he got in, yet for all his errors he had the country running along in surplus jjjjust fine Until Trump got in. We should be a million miles off another GFC but, Trump will single handedly give us one, THEN STILL blame Obama the fn lunatic.

  10. “Done our duty” 🤔

  11. This is Afghanistan. Alexander the Great try to conquer this country, then Genghis Khan, then the British, then the Soviets and now the Americans. But Afghan people fight hard, they never be defeated. Ancient enemy make prayer about Afghanistan, you wanna know? May God deliver us from the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger, and the vengeance of the Afghans.

    Yeah, Afghanstan is A federal contractor scam .. they bill the federal government 10,000-100,000% the market value of their services because they donate to corrupt Democrats!! WE HAVE IT ALL!

    Washington state’s apples & cherries & seafood are strong in Japan & but the Pacific northwest region has shorter summers than in the 70s & 80s & shorter growing seasons. Global cooling?

  14. Trump turned the swamp into a lagoon! Now it’s ALL full of shiiii!! !

    Troops were there for Bushes poppy fields.

    Take your pick.

  17. Climate change is not the Nazis. The carbon in the atmosphere drives over the ocean. Plant life in the ocean absorbs the carbon dioxide. Little fish eat the plant life, big fish eat the little fish, we eat the big fish. Life is good. Remember the first law of thermodynamics.

    • The fossil fuel industry continues to avoid paying for the externalities of their

      product – you pay for climate change and healthcare costs related to pollution. Air pollution from fossil fuels are responsible for “an excess mortality rate of 3.61 (2.96–4.21) million per year” … “a rapid phaseout of fossil-fuel-related emissions and major reductions of other anthropogenic sources are needed to save millions of lives.”

    Instead of removing the crisis TRUMP has INCREASED the crisis..period!

  19. Actually, no. The US has not done its duty in Afghanistan after invading it. The troops did their duty there, but all governments since the invasion failed to fulfill the objective of bringing peace to Afghanistan. Its basically a failed state.

    Just the facts, no opinion on whether or not to pull out ASAP.

  20. Recession next year please! Its coming anyway, why not get it over with and get rid of trump in the process?
    Bonus: When it hits under the trump regime, his party will not be able to blame the Democrats for the bad economy – while trump is moving into federal prison.
