We should pull out,Afganistan cannot be won.
This is a completely inaccurate statement.
Its sad that is seems to be the sentiment more and more in America but there is so much bullshit in Afghanistan that it seems a little overwhelming,we have to change almost everything over there: for example, The taliban tell the farmers that if they dont grow Opium than they are gonna kill there families. Well the farmers make opium just have Us Marines burn down there fields and then,so when the Taliban comes back, they kill the farmers family,suddenly he has no reason to live,he takes 100 dollars and an AK47 from the taliban and shoot the next Americans who pass by. So we stop burning the fields? Well that presents a unique problem because the Taliban are completely funded by the drug trade,with 80% or more of the worlds heroin coming out of Afghanistan, its estimated that the Taliban is worth 800,000,000 million dollars a year, it was almost double that before America invaded but still it only cost the Taliban 500,000 dollars to plan,prepare and execute 9/11,so they got the money to finance their Jihad.
This is not WW2, its not an easy fight with someone to just conquer, we are fighting a whole different war.
As for all the military contractors, I find it hard to believe that all of them just pay the Taliban off, I have rode around with a group of them before and with their loose ROE's and shady missions,they seem more into killing anything that moves as compared to just paying the Taliban off.
