ALL those who feel we should stay should enlist in the military or have their kids enlist.

I include the FOX staff, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck in that.

Us or nato soldiers are in afghanistan not cause of obama, he is president by name all the policies are coming from jews cause they are holding 70% economy of america. Its only a propoganda from jews against mideleast countries. First they were saying iraq is working on atomic plant but there was nothing its only they made a reason to attack on iraq. Second they destroyes their own building in america on 9/11 how its possible that america s intelligence is best in the world and they failed to find anyone in all these flights the same. Its was stupid joke no one can believe it, and that day there was not a single jew was working in those buildings I think all they were sick. It was only to create a reason to attack on afghanistan but they didn't know they cnt get success in this war their all technologies are failed there. Let's see for how for how long obama works as a puppet for jews.

I believe we should give Obama and Hillary both combat gear. Seems their pissing around in Middle Eastern affairs has done nothing but inflame the situation.
But if we do, I don't want the two of them anywhere near me when the crap goes off. Accidents happen. I'll kick the can with Nugent though.
People must understand that, these people (Arabs) have been fighting for thousands of years!!! There not going to reach a peace deal in ten years!
I only believe in war if my country is at stake. We give all of this money to these rogue country's. When we got people in our own streets starving!
But we can't stand by to the country's that want to destroy other country's.
Iran is the worlds next big problem.
They need to bring back the draft.
This country need to have respect!
These young punks running around with their pants down past their ass .
The young people want you to give things to them(jobs-money-etc) They need to earn it. Respect and the military could do that!!! Israel, both men and women must be a part of the military.
That's way Israel is the most powerful country in that region. Thanks to America. God Bless America !!!!!

You raise some valid points, but Afghanistan is not an arab country. It's mostly Pashtuns and Tajiks.

When you attack a country - literally go house to house - and then prop up the inevitable result of a stock middle eastern dictatorship - just what do people think the outcome will be? When the Japanese and even the southern US were dealt with it had to be total submission - and then change happened. This half-ass nation building is not only ineffective but it worsens the whole situation.

In purely tactical terms, get the soldiers out or subdue the country and control the government and education system for a generation.

Most of the people in Afghanistan are good people. They have lived under a ruler that doesn't want people to read or be free ( go to school-etc) we don't need those type of people living with us! It's only gona cost other country's to spend their time and money to turn this around. Let those people live the way they want. Those people doesn't like the way the west lives!
At the beginning of 911. The first thing that came to mind was to make that place a sheet of glass! All our efforts should be focused on Iran. That place is dangerous!!!! If I were Israel, I would have done been there!! I don't like threats,( wipe them off the map)
America is strong !! Our forefathers said
Don't Tread on me!!!!

Actually you are wrong. The US is in negotiations with Afghans to extend US troops stay and looking to make a permanent base in Afghanistan.
