I guess you can’t lose a war if you never stop fighting it.
Where Obama failed in Iraq, he has succeeded in Afghanistan; not success, like winning the war, but success in keeping that war going through at least 2024. And best of all, US troops will have their immunity and retain an ability to violate the homes of Afghans:
Despite the sometimes harsh criticism from Afghan officials during the negotiations, the agreement includes concessions that the Obama administration could not win from Iraq during a similar process in 2011, leading to the final withdrawal of American troops there.
Now, the United States has at least an initial agreement from Afghan officials that American soldiers will not face Afghan prosecution in the course of their duties. And United States Special Operations forces will retain leeway to conduct antiterrorism raids on private Afghan homes — a central American demand that Afghan officials had resisted and described as the last sticking point in negotiations.
In the end, the Obama administration and the Karzai government had more reason to agree than disagree, according to officials on both sides. American officials do not want to see Afghanistan again become a haven for terrorists after it spent billions of dollars and thousands of lives in the war. And the Afghan leadership knows that more than $4 billion in annual international security assistance would simply not flow absent an American military presence to account for it.
What utter fucking horse-shit. A haven for terrorists? Like Libya and Syria? Yeah.
I am so disgusted with Obama’s foreign policy and spineless Democrat support it’s hard to avoid profanity-laced diatribes against it.
The American people need to know this has nothing to do with terrorism. Fuck Obama and his bullshit rationale for war.
And fuck Democrats who continue providing political cover for this travesty.
