No matter the reason for the alleged burning of religious books supposedly used to transmit information between taliban prisoners, it is time for America to pull its troops from a country barely out of the stone age. We cannot impose our moral values on a people who appear to be more animal than human, nor should we. The war in that heap of sand and camel dung has now lasted more than ten years and we have accomplished nothing but to have had more of our soldiers killed.
We cannot trust the Afghan soldiers whom we have trained and paid not to turn their guns on our troops as evidenced by the murders of two of our soldiers this week. Our apologist in chief did not show anger at the killing of our soldiers, but instead, apologized along with members of the military and state department to an individual who acts more like a criminal than a president, unappreciative of what sacrifices have been made for his relatively worthless country. Does obama’s failure to cry out for an apology from Karzai represent his acceptance of the murders? Let’s not forget the millions of dollars members of Karzai’s family has moved out of Afghanistan.
We have seen what has happened in Iraq, now on the verge of civil war as a result of lack of understanding and leadership by an individual never securely vetted with regard to his legitimacy and ability to lead. The Iraqis are again killing each other, exactly what is currently happening in Afghanistan, even though we have maintained somewhat of a force there. The taliban lies in wait for us to leave. The taliban is more than likely involved with the riots against our troops in Kabul currently. The Afghan president is not and has never been our friend, only little better than the African warlords who took our money and somehow used it against their people. If we must maintain a relationship with Pakistan, another corrupt country, but because they have nuclear weapons, so be it. The president has maintained better relationships with out enemies than our friends. LET NO MORE AMERICAN BLOOD BE SPENT FOR A PILE OF SAND AND A PEOPLE WITH LITTLE UNDERSTANDING OR INTELLIGENCE.
