CNN's David Ariosto talks with U.S. Marines in Helmand Province about the future of the fight, the drawdown and where they were September 11, 2001.
What we need to do is to get out of Afghanistan as soon as possible and forget about all this bravado as we have absolutely no right to be in that country in the first place. I'm very sick and tired of all these worthless politicians in Washington telling us why we can't vacate that country!!! Afghanistan belongs to the Afghans and nobody else!!!
You most likely did not mind when we entire when 9-11 happen
James – 9/11 was a reaction to US military operations in the middle east, like the embassy bombing in Africa.
AND THE MASTERMIND IS DEAD AS WILL HAPPEN TO ALL THOSE WHO KILL INNOCENT [PEOPLE UNDER THE GUISE OF WHAT YOU CALL AMERICAN AGGRESSION WHEN IN FACT THE ONLY REASON THERE ARE ATTACKS ON THE WESTERN WORLD IS BECAUSE OF OUR PROTECTION OF ISRAEL AND WESTERN INTERESTS AGAINST RADICAL ISLAMIC FANATICS WHO BELIEVE THAT ISLAM WILL CONTROL THE FUTURE OF MANKIND!
So you admit your 360 cult is allied with al Qaeda huh?
Accordingly to the US declarations the mastermind was the sheick Mohammed Khalid, not OBL.
Americans deserved the lesson they got for their military operations in the midle east.
This ought to make the U.S. Marines pretty glassy-eyed whils fighting for the right-wing thugs in Washington and big U.S. companies!!! This is quite disgusting to say the least!!!
Keep suiciding your own civilians, you are making yourselves look wonderful in the name of Allah. The opium has affected your brain.
You all can just take your politically correct heads out of your back sides. Put yourself in the shoes of a marine who's eat friend was killed in the line of taliban fire. Maybe you should start thinking beyond yourself es and for the greater good of the world. THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE WAR NOT ENDING ARE THE PEOPLE IN OFFICE! They stand Idle and worry about how they can cover their own butts. When in fact. Our troops are in danger. You cut their pay And their benefits when you sit your butt down In a comfy office chair. They cant even defend themselves unless their is a huge political discussion! Listen Up people! This war wont end quickly unless there are actual aggressive actions Taken against the taliban. We have To stop being All about the polotics and more about bringing home the people who put themselves in harms way for us..
Let's talk about this injustice, let's talk about human rights when there are people trying to religiously cleanse the world because their god is a god of hatred. What difference does it make if you dont agree! What you all don't know is that Taliban kill citizens of Afghanistan every day. What's the difference between them and the Nazis? maybe america can someday stop being selfish and start thinking about what is good for our world.
Let's get our boys home
