Trump's name is Don the Con, not the dealmaker. Too bad American voters fell for his scam but dictators and murderers know his game.
Sounds like you prefer Obama's way of bribing dictators to be nice to us.

Afghanistan is the perfect war in the eyes of our military industrial complex. We already know based on history it can't be won yet still dump money from our govt into the hell hole. Why's that? Wait for it.... It generates production and income to the war mongering companies that stand to profit. The biggest transfer of wealth in this country is the govt printing money to pay
companies to build war toys while giving the bill to the average tax payer.


Don't be fooled and tricked into blaming Bush,Obama,or Trump for this. We need term limits and campaign finance reform and to support those that endorse it.

No need for prayer as long as I have my family, my weapons, my dogs and my freedoms.

I'm a bit confused and when did we start meeting with terrorists?

They're not terrorists if they win. ]Both Thatcher Reagan accused Mandela and the ANC of being communists and terrorists in the 1980. Israeli leaders were considered terrorists. Here's an article "How Terrorism Helped Found Israel:

If the Brits have beaten back the American Revolution I bet even George Washington would be a terrorist.

Pakistan tried this before, they made several peace treaties with the Taliban in 2004, 2005 and 2008. The Talban used the treaty to consolidate there holdings and relaunched attacks once they built up there strength again. Few of these treaties lasted more than a few months. The Talban are not to be trusted.


I believe history will repeat it's self. The Taliban will be more than happy to sign a treaty, they will use the time to strengthen there forces, wait until the American's are gone. They will relaunch there offensives and take over the rest of Afghanistan. Without the threat of American Air support to obliterate concentrations of Talban troops, will make an Talban's offensive far easier. Once they consolidate there power they will be in the position to launch new terrorist attacks world wide.

Let them, zero care what happens there.

The US had 18 years to make something happen, it did not, time to leave, it was time to leave 15 years ago.

We have spent a fortune in blood and treasure and now its up to the Afghans to succeed or fail on their own.

Bring them ALL home. It's not worth the life of one American serviceman or woman stop one group of Islamic nutjobs from killing another.
