  1. This is a dilemma. Pull the troops out of Afghanistan & the Taliban Man wins. Stay & America continues to bleed young blood & monies. What to do?

  2. Iran Deal was JUNK. They were able to make BILLIONS. What does it take to BUY anything for a Nuke? BILLIONS. Not only that they SELF INSPECTED. My God. take the deal back, money supply limited and then no funds to buy anything.

  3. what duty??? just billions wasted …well someone made a lot of money from this mess..but the regular working joe…how did we benefit from that war?

  4. Afghanistan has been a mess for over a century. The British screwed themselves in the late 19th century, then let India and Pakistan deal with the problem of spill over into their countries. Russia thought Afghanistan could be a communist satellite state in the 1980s they failed and left the Taliban (Muslim hillbillies) in charge and now it's our turn to admit Afghanistan is still a f**king mess!

  5. Our duity?….No, we are cutting our losses. We are selling out the Afghan government because they couldn't eliminate the Taliban (even with our help). So now we have decided to side with the Taliban…..We are going to give the Taliban arms in exchange for them siding with the Afghan government to eliminate IS and as soon as that's done the Taliban is going to use those weapons to seize control of the country from the Afghan government and establish a Taliban state.

  6. As usual Trump fks up yet again. I don't care who you vote for Iran WAS adherering to Obamas treaty. And why wouldn't they folks!!?? iffff they even tried to amaas womd there'd be a big hole where Iran used to be. Besides that Trade between us was flowing along nicely benefiting both countries. But? Trump just couldn't leave it alone now could he? The Iran leader summed it up brilliantly when he tapped his temple saying There's a lunatic in the w house.WHY??? Because there IS A Brain dead manchild lunatic in the potus's chair just tearing up Anything Obama introduced out of brattish childish spite. Trumps Always been so deeply jealous of Obama and his achievements. He was about to come into office when the GFC hit NOT after he got in, yet for all his errors he had the country running along in surplus jjjjust fine Until Trump got in. We should be a million miles off another GFC but, Trump will single handedly give us one, THEN STILL blame Obama the fn lunatic.

  7. This is Afghanistan. Alexander the Great try to conquer this country, then Genghis Khan, then the British, then the Soviets and now the Americans. But Afghan people fight hard, they never be defeated. Ancient enemy make prayer about Afghanistan, you wanna know? May God deliver us from the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger, and the vengeance of the Afghans.

  8. Yeah, Afghanstan is A federal contractor scam .. they bill the federal government 10,000-100,000% the market value of their services because they donate to corrupt Democrats!! WE HAVE IT ALL!

  9. Washington state's apples & cherries & seafood are strong in Japan & but the Pacific northwest region has shorter summers than in the 70s & 80s & shorter growing seasons. Global cooling?

  10. Climate change is not the Nazis. The carbon in the atmosphere drives over the ocean. Plant life in the ocean absorbs the carbon dioxide. Little fish eat the plant life, big fish eat the little fish, we eat the big fish. Life is good. Remember the first law of thermodynamics.

  11. Actually, no. The US has not done its duty in Afghanistan after invading it. The troops did their duty there, but all governments since the invasion failed to fulfill the objective of bringing peace to Afghanistan. Its basically a failed state.

    Just the facts, no opinion on whether or not to pull out ASAP.

  12. Recession next year please! Its coming anyway, why not get it over with and get rid of trump in the process?
    Bonus: When it hits under the trump regime, his party will not be able to blame the Democrats for the bad economy – while trump is moving into federal prison.

  13. I have never felt so much heat from direct sunlight-it is either actualy an upper atmosphere problem–real?—or the sun itself is generating greater output—a solar nuclear entity controlled by it's own "nature–"–feeling more heat from sunligh tcould be due to my age—77—less tolerance-I will say after month's of heavy rain locally many yard's nearby have patch's of "brown ' grass—-maybe solar radiation inntensity has—in fact —increased–??—in any case—nature does many thing';s we can''t alway's expect or indentify–those system's are just too large to calculate or comprehend easily–especialy with too many "story teller's"jumping on the "doomsday" bandwagon whenever anything unusual occur's—-The human "dream world"-

  14. goerge bush told nato to help him git afganistan rare trillion dollar mineral wealth and told taliban that he would lay out big carpet of gold for it or carpet of bombs.
