"We are not leaving Afghanistan."



  • After we built that huge natural gas pipeline, like we're going to abandon that. Yeah right. We're there FOREVER.

  • That's not fair. We're always everywhere forever.

    The US has only not left a presence after the Vietnam war. After every other conflict, we've left bases.

  • Because the Vietnamese had fought a war of independence for over 30 years and they weren't about to give up especially when Nixon was looking at $365,000.000.00 a day to run operations in SE Asia. They just fought them out to the bitter end. Then it turned into a "civil" bloodbath of the proportions that gives Karl Rove a woody.
