My op-ed for today is going to be changed to understanding Afghanistan. The Afghan military has been supplied with intelligence from the United States and with air support. The Afghan military has been fighting the terrorist group called Taliban. The Afghan military has been holding the Taliban to a stalemate and have lost over 7,500 troops. I wrote an article recently and stated that we are in Germany, South Korea, Japan and many other bases around the world and we give air support along with NATO and if we were to remove our intelligence and air support most every country would be over run by Russia and China along with Afghanistan. When ever I hear the term stated by our government by any President, or government official they want to pull out of Afghanistan and don’t want to give the next persident this headache, Well they seem to forget why we are in Afghanistan for and that is to keep our ally Afghanistan from falling to the terrorist groups. Remembering that 9/11/2001 was plotted and taken out by Osama Bin Laden who by the way was with the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Look back at history and the main story was no one has ever conquered Afghanistan. Yet when we went into Afghanistan we conquered the Taliban. We have done so much to bring our morals into the country, First we gave the right to vote to woman, we allowed woman to work to go to school, uncovering their the face of woman, allowing them to make decisions on who their daughters could marry. Remember the Taliban grab, rape, and make woman slaves. Our allies asked us not to leave yet look at the scenes that has been on television world wide and we look like a heartless country. Note: If I were President of the United States I never would leave the Afghan people to slavery, mass murder what a pathetic mistake by moving out of this area.
