Time To Get Out of Afghanistan NOW

President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan recently said the both the United States and the Taliban equally are demons.    Some say this guy has not been taking his MEDS; but whatever caused Karzai to make this statement, it is an insult to the 1,800 or more families that have lost loved ones, our brave soldiers, fighting to keep Karzai in power and the thousands of American soldiers wounded, or maimed, in the last ten years trying to bring peace and stability to Afghanistan.  It is time for us to get out of Afghanistan NOW not a year or two from NOW. 

Socialist President Obama made the right decision to go after and kill Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan.   As such, we can declare Victory and get the hell out of Afghanistan.   Unfortunately, we find ourselves in the current mess because Obama publicly announced a withdrawal date.   Would Roosevelt have ever announced a withdrawal date from Europe while we were fighting the NAZI's.  Would Truman have told the Japanese that we had no more atomic bombs, after dropping the only two we had on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Obviously, announcing your withdrawal strategy to the enemy is pretty stupid; but that is exactly what Obama has done. 

Karzai knows that we will not be there to protect him by a date certain and as such, he is now looking for ways to work with the Taliban.   What a surprise.   The reality is that Afghanistan has been a hell hole for centuries.  We are not going to change that any time soon.   Shortly after we depart, the Taliban will be back in power.   Karzai will flee to Switzerland to join his bank account full of American taxpayer money.   Sadly, women once again will face incredible repression in Afghanistan.  Unfortunately, we just can't change these cultural behaviors.  Once we leave, Afghanistan will go back into Mid Evil times and their corrupt society.  It is all they know.  It is what it is and we can't change it. 

What we can do is make it very clear to who ever is in power in Afghanistan that if they allow their country ever again to be used for Terrorist bases,  they will face aerial bombing and cruise missiles to not only destroy those bases; but also the heroin fields that fuel their economy and corrupt bank accounts.    We don't need American boots on the ground to display American power.   We can implement shock and awe anywhere we choose to make it happen. 

Most important, we should not be in the business of nation building anywhere else; but the United States of America.   There has been and there will always be cruelty in the world.   We can't solve all the world's problems no matter how horrible these people are to each other.   We can apply pressure; but that should be the extent of our involvement in many of these countries that do not involve the vital interest of the United States. 

Socialist President Obama, when running for the Presidency, called Afghanistan the right war and Iraq the wrong war.   So that makes Afghanistan Obama's war.  Obama has already thrown in the towel and as such not one more American soldier's blood should be shed in Afghanistan.   It is time to get out of Afghanistan NOW.   Obama has already surrendered so why waste any more time, resources, or American blood on this backward country.
