You do know how close Afghanistan is to Iran right?

I agree with you,but I also understand the ulterior motive....

After Bin Laden was killed, did you really think they would pack up and go home?...

Yeah, i thought about it, but the agreement says we won't laugh attacks onto other countries, well drone attacks.

I think we need to cut the BS. It doesn't matters how close. What are we going to do, just stay put there at the border waiting for the day? For how long? Indefinitely? The ten years thing is for hope things cool off politically in ten years so they can extend it again under a diffrent administration.

We need to get out now and stay the fuck out.

We bought some pretty fucking expensive bombers, fighter jets, intercontinental ballistic missiles, satellites, on and on....that's what these insanely expensive toys were bought for, so we could play security guard the old fashion way, through CCTV.

We bought the Afghans helicopters to help them secure their own nation, but instead they use them for drug smuggling. The good news is that Karzai's brother at least openly deals opium, He doesn't make no bones about it. He is the honest one in the family. So there is at least a bright spot, some hope there.

...and from today's Huffpo

California Rep., Barred From Entering Afghanistan By Hamid Karzai

WASHINGTON -- Afghan President Hamid Karzai may not be able to silence his critics in Washington, but he can stop them from entering his country. On Friday, Karzai barred Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) from traveling to Afghanistan with his fellow congressmen. Rohrabacher, a longtime critic of Karzai, called the move a "pretty desperate" attempt to prevent his views from being aired in front of the Afghan people.

"The nature of his own regime is corrupt and he doesn't want anyone to be able to say it," Rohrabacher told The Huffington Post from Qatar, where he was awaiting a flight back to the United States on Monday.

Rohrabacher was scheduled to visit Afghanistan as part of a congressional delegation, which he joined at the last minute when another member of Congress dropped out. But according to Tara Setmayer, Rohrabacher's communications director, Karzai threatened to bar the entire group if the California Republican attempted to make the trip.

Yeah we need to get the fuck out of the "waiting for that day" shit.

If anything we should have taken a huge swath of Afganistan outright for our military interests.

http://news.yahoo.com/us-...05244.html

U.S. tax payers are being forced to pay for, and US troops are being used up for,

  • opium profits (which rose over 90% since the illegal US invasion),
  • profitable oil pipelines,
  • providing an excuse for profitable no-bid "defense" contracts, and
  • forwarding the New World Order agenda of global U.S. imperialism ushered in by the blatant false flag attack known as "9-11."

And who's profiting? A tiny group of wealthy elites.

This is not some cynical rant. This is what's happening.

Furthermore, the blatant false flag attack known as "9-11" -- i.e. the hideous mass-murder of hundreds of our fellow tax-slave Americans and the blatant lies of mass media that surrounds us and many in government positions who we vote for and are led to trust.

No plane hit this building. This can not happen to a building like this without some sort of controlled demolition:
