More United States troops died during the month of July,2009 than in the entire eight year period relative to America's misguided adventure in Afghanistan with no end game in-sight,and at the same time President Obama was babbling about Health Care Reform which was a clever duplicitous ploy to divert the public's attention away from the fiasco in Afghanistan as the United States sinks deeper into the cauldron.
President Obama hasn't accurately defined the United States military or political mission in Afghanistan,nor how he will achieve those objectives.
Last week the blatantly corrupt Hamid Karzai won reelection as President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan even though there was strong widespread evidence of voter abuse,fraud, and voter intimidation,rigged ballots, throughout the Afghan countryside. Hamid Karzai's brother,Ahmed Wali Karzai is one of the biggest(NARCO)Heroin traffickers in Afghanistan and the Karzai brothers are dependent and rely totally on the support of the U.S. and NATO military force for cover to camouflage their lucrative drug trade business and other widespread corruption and graft.The C.I.A. front companies also pay Ahmed Karzai for intelligence knowingly that this NARCO creep is the biggest drug dealer in the Country.
The Karzai family is very wealthy and they are also good friends with the former Vice President Dick Cheney and other members of the Bush Co. team.
For the last eight years the former and present U.S. administration has failed to provide the average Afghan poppy grower any viable incentives or alternatives to growing poppy,which gives an appearance that previous regime under Bush and the Obama Administration is in bed with the Karzai's. The growing of corn,cotton and wheat has not provided the Afghan farmer with the kind of necessary income that they need to survive on,and the soil in the Afghan highlands doesn't appear to be conducive or favorable for the successful growing of the previously mentioned crops.
One must also be cognizant of the fact that it was the U.S. government under Bill Clinton that aided,abetted,and helped prop up the so-called Taliban in Afghanistan.
President Obama's war strategy in Afghanistan appears to be no different than his predecessor George W. Bush. The U.S. and NATO troops can win a few minor skirmishes in Southern Afghanistan but the Taliban smartly move and outfoxed the NATO forces and move into the Central and a few Northern provinces to carry on their incessant guerrilla war that has the U.S. and NATO forces befuddled and on the defensive. How much longer will the American people tolerate this madness in Afghanistan ?
Furthermore Obama has bought into the George Bush II line of making the Taliban into an AL-QA'DA proxy solely for the U.S's own niggardly greed and warped Geo-Political ambition to control the flow of natural gas,and other vital resources coupled with the Opium trade in Afghanistan. President Obama's war policy and lack of a consistent strategy in the on-going conflict in Afghanistan will dog his Presidency which could have far deeper repercussions for his reelection bid in 2012,as American and NATO forces continue to die in a conflict with no end game in sight.
The Taliban have been living in Afghanistan for the last 4500 years,and they along with their kinfolk helped to defeat"Alexander The Great," "The Persians", "The treacherous Brits" and the "Bear got beat so bad in Afghanistan they had to go back home to the Soviet Union
with their tails waggling from behind.
Someone or anyone show me the evidentiary proof that shows that the Taliban was involved in the 9/11 attack or any other attack on the U.S. Homeland,or any United States interest abroad.
