Hear, hear! I would add, no politically correct wars where our military has one hand tied behind their backs. Turn 'em loose to demolish shit, or keep them out of harm's way.Our whole problem is policing the world.. let the bodies hit the floor.. only war I support from here on out is one we Acquire what we win and or get full reimbursement of money spent.
Not the taliban but the mujahadeen'.Well, we supported the taliban against the Russians, and we know how that turned out.
Will this be different? I hope so
Sorry, my mistake by mixing up names.Not the taliban but the mujahadeen'.
Turned out great.
The problem is that we stopped supporting them after Russia pulled out and the power vacuum was filled by the likes of the taliban.
Our support has been on a different scale with the Kurds than it was with the mujahadeen".Sorry, my mistake by mixing up names.
But nonetheless, what we could see is the same effect from abandoning the Kurds.
The PKK is not recognized for its diplomacy.
Does that mean that Lindsay graham is now a trump hater?the alternative to pulling out is staying and American deaths, and that's secondary to being a Trump hater-at-any-cost???
That's my guess
Pretty much the definition of 'Trump Derangement Syndrome'
It amazes me to no end how republicans will cry about the cost of welfare and immigration and healthcare costs all the things that constitute personal responsibility and then spend 10 times that on wars for people that wouldn't take the time to spit on us.Rand Paul thinks it's a great idea.
PIPE DREAMS. 18 fucking years this time around maaaan. We've been at it for 18 PLUS years and it's still a shit hole!! We nuked japan TWICE and it didnt take 18 fucking years to get their country back together.the mistake of ending it instead of helping them get their country back together.
The help I was referring to was the monetary and material help we had been giving them, not sending in troops.It amazes me to no end how republicans will cry about the cost of welfare and immigration and healthcare costs all the things that constitute personal responsibility and then spend 10 times that on wars for people that wouldn't take the time to spit on us.
The shit has to end and the fucking republican party needs to stop worrying about people overseas and start taking care of their own.
And talk about "taking care of their own" Charlie wilson was a cock sucker too. .....congressman turned lobbyist for Pakistan of all places.... fuck him AND Lindsey Graham that two faced coat tail riding mother fucker. He's ALREADY shown his stripes

We've 'helped' enough.
I get it; you're on the side of paying people to like us. If we don't do it then somebody else will. It'll be a power vacuum....a war or an attack will result.The help I was referring to was the monetary and material help we had been giving them, not sending in troops.
It could have gone a long way to make that place a lot more friendly toward the US.

I don't buy into that shit anymore. I used to, but after decade after decade of seeing exactly how it all turns out I stand with the FUCK THAT crowd now. Been there done that -- it's time to wake the hell up.
We should be here building schools, houses, and hospitals and out there building islands and taking over the world's commerce like China, not spending half our net worth on making sure nomadic people can build houses, go to school and hospitals or grow Heroin.
We're going to get hit again someday and not because we didn't do enough to make people like us. It'll be because we are WEAK.
We'll absorb it like we always have and if I were in charge when it happened I'd wipe the country off the map that birthed them whether it be Saudi Arabia or Portugal and there'd not be one boot on the ground to do it. It's that simple.
You grow up with a towel on your head and feel like the US kept you down and now want to wage jihad? -- no problem go ahead and do it. Just know that afterwards -- POOF everybody you're ever known is gone now. ALLLAH AKBAR mother fuckers.
Seriously. FUCK Syria, fuck the kurds and do I give a shit about the civilians that will die from some supposed chem attack when we pull out? NOPE. That means less refugees too.

I understood --- "teach a man to fish" ... and all that crap.Partially correct but the tense is stood on that side of paying to help them help themselves and making them not hate us.
yeah again I get it... it's the same place I'm coming from. I was all in on the 'commies are coming' and fight the radicals 'over there instead of here' pile of crap they've been feeding us since the late 60s.To be clear, I was saying what should have been done at that time.
Now it's a different situation and too much water has passed...
Crazy asshole president or not --- Who here doesn't agree with that?trump said:“It is time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home,”
