If Obama truly does mean it’s time to focus on our country, then his extracurricular wars will have to stop. Unless he’s just spitting talking points.
In the case of Afghanistan, the argument has always been whether or not the Afghans are ready. With recent comments from Afghan president Hamid Karzai … who cares if they are or not?
Afghan President Hamid Karzai has said if the United States and Pakistan ever went to war, his country would back Islamabad.
There comes a point when American blood, sweat, money and effort are no longer worth the cause. Our military has won their war in Afghanistan, and we owe them nothing. If it’s time to bring our troops home from Iraq, then surely it’s time to bring them home from Afghanistan after these remarks.
I should note several Afghan officials have rebuffed Karzai’s statement.
