It is time to revisit an EARLIER US Military engagement in Afghanistan, under Carter/Reagan.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_war_in_Af ...

"On July 3, 1979, United States President Jimmy Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul.[23] The aim of the U.S. was to drag the Soviet Union into the "Afghan trap" as U.S. National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski termed it."
------
At that time, the Soviet Union was the United States chief opponent; and the goals were simple, end the reign of the Soviet puppet government.

US action was pro-active, peripheral and fully coordinated with the freedom forces in Afghanistan.
Upon obtaining our objectives, the United States withdrew and the Afghan people had no animus toward the United States.

This is the DIFFERENCE between a PRO-AMERICAN and a Pro-Globalist action that we see today in Afghanistan.

1.) The opium production is being policed.
2.) Afghanistan is the world's largest producer of lithium, which is needed for batteries in hybrid & electrically rechargeable vehicles.

The old formula is: If there isn't any profit possible, a country doesn't matter militarily-strategically-econo mically. Now, go follow the money trail.

Naw! you mean we're not fighting for our freedom, a holy crusade against the horrible child-murdering terrorists? Or, is that us? I get confused....

Afghanistan has virtually no mining industry and thus produces only a tiny fraction of the lithium now being produced in this world. And it would be a difficult argument to make, that war somehow improves access to commodities. There is no profit possible in Afghanistan than cannot be obtained in greater volume elsewhere at much less cost.

Your summary sentence is trite.

Afghanistan is to lithium what Jamaica is to bauxite/aluminum what Thailand is to latex for the rubber industry what Texas is to helium. The raw material is there; the land must be controlled first before it is mined. The U.S. is still in the "gain control stage."

When the government brain trust in the U.S. finally figures out that dealing with fundamentalist Islam means seeing things their way or else you get foolishness like this then we'll have a better foreign policy.

I was a mid-level enlisted man who never went to an Islam-dominated country except for Egypt before Mubarak's troubles, yet from just keeping up with the news I know that you don't burn Qu'rans. So how did the genius over there who ordered the burnings not know what I did?

Then your first comment was just flat wrong, so you qualify it with this one? LOL. Really.

file photo KABUL, Feb. 25 – A recent news report from Kabul province state that on later Saturday Abd-ur-Rahman and his fellow, two brave Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Afghan shot and killed 4 high-ranking American military officers-cum-advisers within the ministry of interior in the heart of Kabul city, the capital of the country.

Mujahid Abdurrahman, working in the ministry of interior, said though cellular phone from within the facility of the ministry of interior that they took out the four said American invaders this evening in reaction to the desecration of Holy Quran by the US invaders in Bagram Airbase and as way of retaliatory action for the constant blasphemy and violation of our sacrosanctities by the foreign occupiers, particularly the US terrorist forces. Abdurrahman added that they were putting up strong resistance against the invaders and their puppets within facility for quite a while.

This all comes amid popular countrywide protest after the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, in a statement issued two days ago, asked the officials and those working for the puppet regime to know their real enemy and target all the foreign invaders across the country.

And this advice from a country that rolled over for the Nazis and supplied them with iron for bombs and use of their rails to transport the bundeswehr! Now, it has rolled over for the Jihadinazis. Follow Dengbat's example. Yumpin yinninie. Buy a new Saab and some Swedish porn! And, you want happy? Get out of your very dangerous country:

There is more crime in Sweden than in New York City, though they are comparable in population.
Drug abuse is rampant, with the number of deaths from overdoses having doubled in the past 10 years.
Sweden has one of the highest incidences of rape in the world.
Burglaries are so numerous that many citizens have stopped reporting them, because the police are overloaded and cannot undertake to investigate them all anyway.
Attacks on money transports (like highway robbery) are so frequent that the transporters are threatening to quit, thereby effectively closing ATM?s all over the country.
Violent outdoor muggings are becoming routine, having increased 15% last year alone.
In Stockholm, the police recently admitted having lied when they claimed to have neutralized some 130 of the city?s most prominent gangsters; in reality, their sting operation was a bust.
Swedish courts are plagued with perjurious police officers who routinely lie to support fellow cops in trouble.

According to an annual report by the Swedish Inspectorate for Strategic Products (ISP) released on Tuesday, Swedish defence companies sold 12.7 billion kronor ($1.4 billion) worth of weapons in 2008.

Sweden's military exports set a record in 2010 despite a contraction of sales to the home market. Moreover, defense industry leaders are forecasting a stronger year in 2012, with Saab's $3.2 billion agreement to deliver 22 Gripen fighter jets to Switzerland providing a lift.

China National Defense Science and Technology Information Network reported that the Swedish military equipment export control department said that the 2011 Swedish arms exports to more than two billion U.S. dollars.
Sweden’s move to sell weapons to some totalitarian countries also led to the oppositions. Saudi Arabia is the second largest export market for military products in Sweden.

China is linbed up to get the mining rights. The United States is paying the price, and China will profit from it. Once agaoin, inour zeal to prove our hunanity and lack of profit motive, we throw away the lives of our Soldiers and Airmen while others reap the rewards.

In Iraq we got no oil and in Afgainistan we will get no mining rights. Enough of the political correct BS. Either fight to win, and win the rewards, or don't fight at all.

...and your blind PATRIOTISM makes you upright right??? RIGHT??? The US is going into a hole because of powerful flunkies choosing to fight a festering war leading nowhere. Stop waving the flag; get it out of your face after you wipe your eyes with it; and see the debacle piling up in America's future because of poor choices & decisions. Even World War II did not take this long to fight and win!!!

You were wrong, and instead of admitting it, you just resort to insults, and that makes you look like a little boy. There is no parallel with WWII, which we were late getting to and which would have ended with the defeat of the Third Reich in Europe with or without us. I surely agree that our conduct of combat in the ME was and is both futile and lacking in use of real power, which we have aplenty. As for patriotism, yes, I am a patriot and am not ashamed of it.

But you are a blind patriot - like a NAZI.
