Afghanistan does not want the American troops, has not wanted the American troops but still we persist. Osama Bin Laden is dead and he was the "reason" the United States went to Afghanistan in the first place. Or so we have been told.
Last night (December 9, 2013) the Congress of the United States got off its' collective ass and passed the Defense Authorization Bill, funding the Department of Defense for 2014. Congress has yet to pass a budget for the "rest of us". We have been duly warned by the late President and Five Star General Eisenhower that we need to be watchful of the Military Industrial Complex. We have not yet learned this lesson.
End the good war now.
