Our challenge in Afghanistan

As a follow-up to Clint’s post yesterday about Afghanistan, I’d like to note that our own government estimates that there are only about 100 al Qaeda operatives in Afghanistan and only about 300 in neighboring Pakistan. Just so you know, we have somewhere around 100,000 of our troops in Afghanistan.

Let that sink in.

    I think that just proves we aren’t there only to fight al Qaeda.

  2. All government is an illusion….and the biggest illusion is the War on Terror…it is needed to convince people to go along with whatever plan they have….why else would we be fighting a war that was won 6 years ago?
