Escaping Obama’s “Good War”

We’ve flooded more troops and more money into Afghanistan to the point that we’re spending 2 billion a week on what Obama has called the “good war.” Yet, the Taliban are stronger there today than they were before the troop surge. This is a classic example of how interventionism breeds opposition. We went to Afghanistan in 2001 to dismantle Al Qaeda. Now, its 11 years later and the Afghan war has mutated into a misguided nation building project that has costed the American people a fortune and thousands of lives and that the Afghanis don’t want. This is an un-winnable war, and its time for us to leave.
