8 years and the war continues,being a Vet,I can tell you they had the chance to actually take Bin Laden,but the Team was called off by Bush himself! Not that his capture would end this War,this is another Vietnam,another no win situation!
NATO is nothing but a Political joke that only costs our country billions of dollars,our country only uses the organization so it can be a police force for the world,budding into every other countries affairs and the reason why they all hate us! They watch factions commit genocide right in front of there troops and turn the other way!They have just as much at stake in Pakistan and Afganistan as we do but look at what they contribute,It's utterly rediculous compared to what we contribute,why should the U.S. carry the majority of everything! While we will have well over 100,000 troops,not one other nation will have more then 2,000!The cost for one soldier to stay deployed for one year there is a staggering 1 million dollars!Now what's the reason for us being there again? Is it to catch Bin Laden?Or is it to Safe guard the nuclear missile's of a country that's in turmoil?If so,who gives us the right? If your going to step in,then just take them until the country is stable,then give them back!Or are we once again trying to reform a country into a democracy, like Vietnam,that's really going to work!Or maybe end Terrorism right there in those two countries,if you believe that,well you know the saying! So what is this War really about? Revenge for 911?Hell we can do alot more damage at alot less cost covertly and with blk ops! Obama called this one wrong he's putting this Nation in a hole were never going to get out of,bringing us to our knees,the Middle Class is paying already and paying big time with the most valuable asset they have,There Sons,Daughters,Husbands,Wives.The taxes are on there way wait till you see them!But don't make any of the NATO countries pick up some of the huge tab, God forbid the USA can handle it,were the world Police force and welfare department!The People wanted change! WOW did they get it this time! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

The full quote by Edmund Burke is: "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."
