We Are Fighting for No Reason, Really!

We do not want to keep our troops in Afghanistan. We see no military — we seek no military bases there. It is agonizing for America to lose our young men and women. It is costly and politically difficult to continue this conflict. We would gladly bring every single one of our troops home if we could be confident that there were not violent extremists in Afghanistan and now Pakistan determined to kill as many Americans as they possibly can.

~ Barack Obama (1961-08-04 age:56) speech in Egypt, 2009-06-04

This is nonsense. According to both the US military and the Afghan puppet dictator Hamid Karzai, bin Laden is not in Afghanistan and neither are Al Qaeda. American soldiers are putting themselves in harm’s way by occupying Afghanistan. The Afghans fight the occupation with primitive home made bombs. They have no means to kill Americans once they go home and the Taliban would be insane to attempt to resume the fight. The situation is similar to Viet Nam. Obama fails to acknowledge the original motivation for the invasion was the Taliban refused to give Unocal a free right of way for their oil pipeline. He is becoming more like Bush every day in his denials.
