Both Wars in Iraq and Afghanstan were both justified and were needed to combat terror. Withdrawling from Iraq is the greatest mistake in American history only mirroring that of ignoring the Pannay Incident.

I don't see how using the same tactics that lead to blowback and 9/11 before are supposed to change into something that stops it.

Likely the same tactics will lead to the same results.

Yes, Lannan is supposed to remember what slavery was like back in the 1860s.

Slavery actually helped our economy get off of it's feet as our nation was just starting out. Was it cruel and inhumane, yes, but did it help our country in a time of need, also yes. I know that it was a terrible thing and we have disbanned slavery when industrialization came about, but letting it go to a Civil War was the mistake. That's like there being a Civil War over something like Abortion or Gay Marriage.

Both Wars in Iraq and Afghanstan were both justified and were needed to combat terror. Withdrawling from Iraq is the greatest mistake in American history only mirroring that of ignoring the Pannay Incident.

Greatest mistake in American history? Do you remember f*ckin SLAVERY?.... ^ that's almost Weekly Stupid material...

Slavery actually helped our economy get off of it's feet as our nation was just starting out. Was it cruel and inhumane, yes, but did it help our country in a time of need, also yes. I know that it was a terrible thing and we have disbanned slavery when industrialization came about, but letting it go to a Civil War was the mistake. That's like there being a Civil War over something like Abortion or Gay Marriage.

That is ultimate WS material.

BREAKING NEWS: War in Afghanistan Ends

I know that this is the wrong forum, but I felt this news was so important that I should post it here anyway.

We'll be back.

It's inevitable.

Call an ace an ace and a spade a spade, but it can be easily cross applied to other categories. People can view the denial and mistreatment of homosexuals the same equivalent as slavery. Feminists could argue the same for abortion rights to even legalize it in the third trimester. The fact is that at that time period the slaves in the south actually had a better life then blacks in the north. If a black truly wanted to be free then he'd go to Canada or even Mexico if at all possible.

Neither the Iraq nor Afghanistan Wars were justified. At least now the US and NATO have officially ended the Afghanistan War.

Not that I feel like this is a triumph of non-interventionism, but I guess this is good. But remember there's still all the secret wars America is fighting that we don't know about.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

All those CIA opperations and troop deployments mixed with the airstrikes in Syria.
