When will the USA bring the troops home from Afghanistan?
It seems like it is long over due that we bring our men home, when will we end this foolish,expensive war?
There will be no definitive end to Afghanistan just as there will never be an end in Iraq. Likely U.S. troop withdrawal in Afghan will begin late this year or in early 2011, and total recall of troops will be completed in two years. That will coordinate loosely with the 2012 elections which the Dems want to win. The Dems merely want to say "We finished what Bush started."
The U.S. dare not leave a skeletal presence in that region as it would be decimated. So once U.S. troops are withdrawn, Afghan will once again be subject to constant upset and puppet governments. It has nothing to export and no income source except for poppies (drugs). This entire adventure -- and billions of dollars -- will be for nothing. Yet, this country will no doubt fund another skirmish in the near future.
I am 100% in agreement with everything you said.
Thanks Foreignpress for your feedback
Great question !!!!
Unfortunately, I have no idea. Between Afghanistan and Iraq, their have been to many lives lost and no end in site. I can only hope that these wars wont drag on for many years to come............
Lets not forget the men and women who have returned home only to carry the scars of WAR with them for the rest of their lives.
I can't thank enough for their service to our country.......
Hi I'm from New Zealand & I wish all the best for the families that are missing there Fathers - I personally wish that they will all bring them home very soon. I will always pray Gods Protection for thoses that are over there. I feel for the families that are missing there partner.
When we attacked Iraq, we lost the war in Afghanistan. We need to bring them home from both Iraq and Afghanistan.

With the news that a further 8 UK service personnel have died in Afghanistan in the last 24 hours it means that deaths in this war now exceed those due to the Iraq conflict. As a result calls are increasing for the troops to be pulled out. What are your views on the matter?
