We won't use the only weapon that might work.

Counter-Ideology. In other words, spread Christianity.

It's what the muslim fears the most, that is why they ban bible, kill christians and blow up their churches.

It was definitely intertwined in the mission. Yes, we went there to kill Bin Laden and the Taliban, but the mission was also to empower the people to prevent terrorist organizations from using the country as a future training ground.
Well that was fricking stupid. ANYONE who knew Afghanistan would have known that "empowering the people" would not have the result you just described. If it is up to a vote, this nation wont look a great deal different than it did before we got here.

This is a very bad and dangerous idea.

Why? If giving them the vote yields the same result as never having been here in the 1st place, I fail to say ANY functional difference other than a lot of American deaths.

Stupid, no. Naive, maybe. We obviously didn't learn much during our first time in Afghanistan.

Why?


Hmmm, I don't know...the aftermath of Iraq didn't work out so well.

Iraw =/= Afghanistan. Iraq actually had a functioning nation prior to our arrival so there was something to build on.

Afghanistan would consider the stone age a move up.

We should have gone in, overthrown the Talban, bomb AQ sites to dust then install a mean MF warlord to run that country with the iron fist the Taliban ran it, and GTF out.

I never said Iraq was similar to Afghanistan. I referred to your previous statement above. If you don't care what you leave behind, there are many dangerous consequences...like Sadaam no longer keeping Iran in check.

I'd have stopped there. No need to install shite cause, well, he aint gonna survive anyway.

My step 2 after the bombing of AQ would simply to have been to say.....

Do whatever the frick you want but we have satellites and if we see anything that even sort of looks like the previous AQ camps, we'll bomb the frick out of you again.

DONE.
