    This is not an unnecessary or useless war! When we have the terrorists in hiding and on the run there are less of them planning and carrying out attacks against the western world! If we did not go into Afghanistan they would have thought that they could get away with anything. Well with our drone we are picking them off one, two, three or more at a time! This is not useless or inhumane because when you decide to become a terrorist and fight against freedom and democracy you should be held accountable and face the consequences!

    Let's just let our schools and libraries close while our infrasructure falls apart and ignore the plight of our senior citizens so we can spend more and more billions on this unnecessary and useless war! What a joke!!!

      I suspect you neither attended school or visited a library your twisted world view is the product of someone brought up in a closeted environment.

        The way you feel about this useless war leads one to believe that you never finish High School. Nobody with a high school education or any sense of morality would have any use for this obscene war.
