What do you think of Trump speech about Afghanistan War?
Donald Trump’s speech about Afghanistan promises to intensify US involvement in Afghanistan. This represents a complete u-turn for the man who backed troop withdrawal and blasted
his White House predecessors for futile missions that were a “complete waste.”
"We should have a speedy withdrawal. Why should we keep wasting our money -- rebuild the U.S.!"
But now he has given a speech which is nearly identical to what Obama gave about Afghanistan in 2012 or Hillary Clinton was giving. Namely to summarize:
"If we leave Afghanistan hastily that will embolden the Terrorist.."
Since when leaving a War after 16 Years of having waged it is "leaving hastily"?
And then he said: "We are going to now wage the Afghan War to Win it..."
So are you saying that last 16 Years we were waging the Afghan War to loose it?
And why is China that borders Afghanistan, repeat borders Afghanistan, sees no threat from Terrorist and has had ZERO troops in Afghanistan and ZERO Dollar Spent to defend against these "horrific Terrorists" and instead spent the same Trillions on building High Speed Trains, Renewable Energy, etc.. What do you think?
Just more proof that Military Industrial Complex / Wall Street / Israel Lobby; lock stock and barrel controls this fraud Trump, just as they did with Obama. For Obama carried all Bush Wars and added a few to them, and Trump is promising to carry all Obama Wars and a few to them, even a Nuclear War with NK. And the other day they had this program about Millions of American marching against the (one) Vietnam War, yet today we have like 7 Wars under Obama -> Trump, and there are NO Million+ man marches against these Wars as there was against (one) Vietnam War. And back then there was No email or Social Media as there is today, yet the American people today are not even able to organize and march as they during Vietnam!
Trump speech about Afghanistan War is just more proof of what fraud Trump and his brain washed followers are, for Trump when Obama was in power repeatedly stated what "Waste of our Money and lives Afghan War is..." as of course it is, since China that borders Afghanistan, repeat borders Afghanistan, has no fear of Taliban Alqaeda etc Fear Mongering BS as China has spent no money or lives in fighting even a day in Afghanistan, while USA under Bush_Obama_Trump is ooooooooh so scared of the Bogye Man of Terrorist in Afghanistan, leading to an endless War there and waste of our Money (Taxes). When are American people going to wake up as to how Military Indsutrial complex controls these Trump_Obama_media Axis.
The famous American linguist and philosopher, NOAM CHOMSKY, once said: "EVERYBODY IS WORRIED ABOUT STOPPING TERRORISM. WELL, THERE IS AN EASY WAY OF ELIMINATING IT. STOP PARTICIPATING IN IT."
Trump & Obama and their speeches about continuing the Afghanistan War, after 8 Years in case of Obama, and after 16 Years in case of Trump, are final proof that the MIC (Military Industrial Complex) and their Wall Street buddies that make Fortune from these non ending Wars run USA and not American People (Democracy).
I thought that speech just displayed the usual hypocrisy that has become synonymous of Donald Trump and his entire administration. He is reversing his previous stance on the issue of Afghanistan. During his campaign Donald Trump said against anymore warfare in Afghanistan, and that the United States should take care of the United States first.
I can't say is I really surprised by his reversing his position because that has become his usual pattern of behavior. I wish I can say I was surprised, or caught off guard by his reversal, but I cannot.
I was flabbergasted. After 16 Years waging this War, longer than WWI + WWII + Civil War, he can somehow by some Osmosis look at his Audience and actually state: "If we leave Afghanistan hastily this will give blahblah to Terrorist". And then also added "Look at that we left Iraq too soon and that created ISIS".
Answer to 1st non-sense is since when leaving a War longer than WWI + WWII + Civil War, is leaving it too hastily? And the unjust unnecessary Iraq War that destroyed the secular regime that lead that Country created ISIS, since there was zero ISIS in Iraq before the unnecessary Iraq War that your buddies started.
Ah, whats the point :(
Election of Trump and his promise to wage even more Wars than Bush and Obama with their 7 Wars and 1-Million+ they Killed and $6-Trillion of our Money they wasted, is a reminder that USA is not a Nation but an Abomination. That is a Nation controlled by Military Industrial Complex. I mean just look at our Northern neighbor Canada, it has Zero troops in Afghanistan, it is bombing Zero Muslim Countries, it has Government run Socialized Healthcare, yet this "American Psycho" Trump was elected who is promising even more Wars than Bush and Obama, such as threatening North Korea with Nuclear War and Killing Millions, and calls the 16 Years Afghanistan War to be too short a War which is same as the Psycho saying if we leave Afghanistan now that would be a "Hasty"! Really sick :(
