The Republican potty'ticians funneled 6 Trillion dollars into massive American taxpayer cash giveaway's in Iraq, Afghanistan and other Middle East nations, war lords, drug lords and even the Taliban along the convoy routes as bribes to stop their ambushes. NONE of those Trillions of dollars went into America's domestic spending, NONE to rebuild or replace aging Public Schools, Dams, Bridges, Levee's, Harbors, the National Electrical Grid and Library's.

If you don't like what you see now in America, vote Democratic across the board, return Federal spending back to America and it's Domestic spending to our States.

Same Old Same Old.

B.S.

Talk to me, not about a failed mission.

BUT ABOUT WHAT DO THE SPOUCES AND CHILDREN OF THE WASTED AMERICANSDO TO BRING THEIR LIFES BACK INTO FOCUS.

Turning Marjah in Afghanistan into a functioning branch of regional government was a FAILURE and the same strategy is being tried on Kandahar resulting in yet another failure. As long as Pakistan pour's it's Taliban fighters into Afghanistan to specifically undermine the Hamid Karzai Afghanistan government whom PAKISTAN feels tilts towards India who Pakistan views as it's sworn enemy, there is no short term nor long term success for America in Afghanistan.

The way to success:

Gather Pakistan, India and Afghanistan high level envoys to work out a lasting peace treaty in Afghanistan. Even if American lawmakers stop pouring Billions of American taxpayer dollars into Pakistan who uses that cash to supply and equip the Taliban fighters in Afghanistan, PAKISTAN is next door to Afghanistan and can and does wield a great deal of influence and pressure on Afghanistan just as found now across Iraq by Iran.

The status quo is entirely unacceptable. Over 60% of All Americans want America to pull out of Afghanistan NOW entirely. A large number of Americans realize American taxpayers have been funding BOTH SIDES of the War in Afghanistan draining domestic spending and creating a intolerable condition to the Afghanistan people.

Winning or losing Kandahar makes no difference in the future of Afghanistan as long as Pakistan continues to interfer with the existing Hamid Karzai Afghanistan government.

1) Afghanistan and India want the Trans-Afghanistan natural Pipeline (TAP) built and supplying natural gas to New Delhi, India. Pakistan does not.

2) Afghanistan's Karzai clan are linked as major exporters of the world's Heroin. Pakistan and many Middle Eastern nations including Russia strongly resent having their country's flooded with Heroin.

Those two issues appear to be the major issues which must be fully addressed and solved if any lasting peace in Afghanistan is going to be obtained.

I don't know if 4 is is the right numer.I think Ben Stien, Nicole Wallace
and for sure Stephen King have thier finger on the pulse of America.
A show with the 3 of them once a month would be something to look
forward too.The chemistry is main stream.
