the reason for staying is that leaving would create a huge vacuum that would allow bad guys to take over again.
So what if they do? There are bad guys in many other countries too so should we go in and occupy those countries too?
There are currently 90,000 US troops in Afghanistan. If we are worried about bad guys in the world then bring those troops back home and fortify our borders. The US will be much safer if that happened than what it currently is. I don't mind spending my money (taxes) on that.
Clinton told reporters at the United Nations in New York. "This terrible incident does not change our steadfast dedication to protecting the Afghan people and to doing everything we can to build a strong and stable Afghanistan
I say phewy to that. Afghanistan will NEVER be stable. Don't these idiots ever learn from history?
