  •  It is getting some attention tho not much yet (3+ / 0-)

    - it is more than the last 2 reps against the war who posted diaries here and were pretty much ignored. That made me so sad.

    Ending the Afghanistan war now, not in 2 more year, only makes sense. The country we have to rebuild is our own.

    Afghanistan existed for centuries without the USA - and can again just without billions of dollars of money needed here to stop the implosion of our country. Like other poor countries they have become accustomed to all those American dollars, as if we are a wealthy country still, but they  want to keep the money flowing.  At least the politicians do.

    I read a report today in an Afghanistan newsite that the money pretty much stays with the politicians. So much for helping the Afghan people, but that was never the reason for the war anyway. Those reasons have come and gone, and here we are now in the 12 th year of war there, mired down with the hope that some good things will start the country down the right path so that we might be able to leave in 2 more years. There is no other plan that I know of other than waiting 2 more years to leave and I do not understand that.

    4 years after Bush left the WH and after 50 Billion dollars alone spent on training the Afghans, and we're still there, troops still fighting and dying, Afghans still dying, death and destruction and what do we have to show for it? What are we still doing there and why are we letting the politicians off the hook who keep funding this war, whether Repub or Dem?
