The war without purpose: Afghanistan.
The subject of the unnecessary and useless U.S. involvement in Afghanistan has been raised for several years in this blog. We are sending our young, strong, smart sons and daughters to a land of corruption and antipathy toward our country and culture. We have no plan for our involvement, no reason for staying there other than the fact we went there in the first place to kill a few terrorists who are often indistinguishable from those who are presently ruling and their minions. Afghanistan soldiers seem to think it is a sport to kill their U.S. allies while our President and his commanders are more interested in public relations and making sure our soldiers are put in harms way without putting those they are fighting or the sympathizers of those they are fighting into harms way. Soldiers die because of "rules of engagement."
We have a niece who is about to go to that hellhole. She is young, strong, and smart and we can only pray that she returns safely.
