The terrible tragedy of the Vietnam War lasted nearly 20 years. The Afghan War has gone on for over 15 years. Is it time to pull our troops out of Afghanistan?
We shouldn't have pulled out all of our troops from Vietnam. We were supporting democracy (ish) in Vietnam and because we left it fell to communism.
No, there was 100yr war time not factor.
It's time to get rid of the threat and use some real power.
Like financially crush those poppy fields with a little Roundup.
We can't just bring them home. We'd have to invade somewhere else instead. Where should we invade?
Pakistan where they have sanctuary. Since Pakistan has nuclear arms, we will suffer if the Islamic Extremists takeover. When the other side wants global jihad, we have only two choices, crush them or surrender. Obama tried surrender and that didn't work so well. India may have an interest in defeating them. War is the choice of last resort. What prolongs them is idiotic rules of engagement usually provided by Democrats. If Liberals are so anti-war, why have they chosen to take violence to the streets?
Oh, I was thinking Canada
Let's invade Fiji.
Our soldiers deserve a nice South Pacific vacation. Besides the natives have nothing to fight back with except coconuts.
I like that idea. Fuck you figi!!!
Are you suggesting the soldiers have conjugal relations with the subjected Fijians?
Now that's a motivator!
Switzerland. I need chocolate 😂😂
We can't invade the Swiss.
They won't fight anymore.
Besides the greatest chocolate is coming from Belgium.
We cannot invade Belgium, because 2/3 of Americans cannot identify that country on a world map. Plus it's not big enough for a reasonably sized occupying army.
"We cannot invade Belgium, because 2/3 of Americans cannot identify that country on a world map."
That's never stopped us in the past
I can taste the chocolate!
Can you taste the chocolate?
Let's feee Belgium.
In the name of God and Country
Afghanistan isnt even 1/10 of what vietnam was.
That is correct in terms of casualties. However, both wars are "Quicksand" in terms of ever being able to extract our military and claim any semblance of a victory.
Well its not like its worse now than before, which is how nam ended.
Please don't forget the Russians were in Afghanistan for approximately 15 years before the USA, the cost to the national debt is staggering! Let's rebuild America now.
Get in -- all the way in and fix it or get out. That's just an instinctive reaction. I have no idea how convoluted the situation is there. I felt this way about Vietnam too. (yes I am that old)
