  • USA's perpetual war

    VP Biden had declared that "come hell or high water" we will be out of Afghanistan by the end of this year. Afghanistan recently made a pact allowing US forces to stay until 2024.

      Too bad Nouri al-Maliki did not allow us to keep more modest force in Iraq. I am not advocating perpetual war, of course, but once we were dragged into the previously relatively stable mess in Iraq, we might have been able to (at least delay if not) prevent the slide into civil war with the ascendnce of ISIS. The question is, how long would we have needed to stay to perpetually delay the inevitalbe?

            Yeah. Which is one of the reasons why we never should have gone in there, not to mention the fact that they had nothing to do with 9/11.

              And the Russians tried to teach us what a wonderful idea it is to go fight in Afghanistan.

                Yeah, there too. A simple extradition request has become a 13+ year war with no real end in sight.

                  The fact is we are in WW3 whether any one wants to admit it or not. It will be a hundred year war. And our troops will need to be strategically placed around the world.

                    Hardly a world war. Do leave the rest of us out of it.

                      With hardly anyone willing to send troops? Hardly a world war.

                              No one will be left out since Islam wants the world.
