"U.S. military says force in Afghanistan isn't big enough

Published:

Why is our military there other than to build infrastructure for drug runners or to control whatever oil pipeline that may be pumping through that area?

Wasn't this the president who vowed to bring out troops home?  These headlines certainly don't speak withdrawal. 

Silence of anti-war protestors is deafening........................

The US war in Afghan. is another illegal war based on the lies of 9/11. Our govt. is committing war crimes for the reasons you mention. The anti-war movement has been compromised by intelligence services and informants. When nuns get arrested for peacefully protesting the war, when people get placed on terrorist lists for PLANNING peaceful protests, everyone is intimidated. There is no effective opposition to the govt. They have all been infiltrated, divided and conquered. Especially the war movement and those who want the criminals behind 9/11 brought to justice.

This country has become shameful and can only be compared to Nazi Germany.

Thanks Em!!! My biggest question is where's the money going to come from to fund all this with our economy in the sewer. Or is this going to lead us into another large scale war as some recent articles I've posted suggest? Obama has said we're not fighting the war on terror anymore so what are we fighting? Who are we fighting for other than bankers?

Code Pink & MoveOn seem to have closed up shop, eh?
(With apologies to kids' cereal commercials) ... Drug running and oil pipelines are an important part of a good foreign policy. With the exceptions of the health care scheme and that whole speaks-in-complete-sentences thing, kind of hard to tell Current Boss from Former Boss.

This country needs to go back to "We The People"
Which I think it will in the not to far future. Enough is enough.

Thanks JAP!!! Agree and see a substantial rise in the Libertarian party. Marriage between Republicans and Democrats got us in the pickle we're in right now.

Yeah, looks like the left war protestors have been put into some kind of trance and they are waiting for Barky to end the wars like he said in campaign.
Maybe they should do what Woody Allen once said----"Once I gave up H O P E I felt a lot better." Same goes for C H A N G E!!!
Regarding "oil pipeline" I believe it was a natural gas pipeline that the Afgans turned down USA offer of: "Take this amount of $ or we will cover your land with bombs." Story goes they wanted more $.

Thanks TigerAngel!! They were used to further the stranglehold of what we're currently experiencing. Was it Marx who coined the phrase "useful idiots?"
