it's just that i can't help thinking about the latest campaign in afghanistan and the results that it yielded.

zero.

Zero? Tell that to the people of Afghanistan who are living free of the Taliban rule, tell that to the children who can go to school and be kids instead of learning how to kill, tell that to the women who can actually get jobs now and live a free life rather then being barely more then a sex slave, tell them that us going into Afghanistan resulted in zero.......

ok, this isn't an insult, but can you clarify that a little more...

forget everything, the point i like to make clear its that USA its not alone in this war, the whole world its on this one, either directly or indirectly, USA its the Biggest Market(yes the american Lifestyle market) and sure its needed so all the world economy can keep growing(its true the whole world economy revolves around that american lifestyle), but surely what bush its trying to do seems to make more harm than good, i mean imagine USA economy ends in a big slump after the war, that surely hits the american lifestyle and the whole world economy, what you are gonna do if that lifestyle ends cause of a stupid war?, i hope that isnt happen cause we need this big market so the world can keep selling you Electronics, Cars, Food, etc etc.

I like the new Avatar Lizard King - Much more appropriate for your "Gung Ho" Yankee attitude - But I am not going into this topic again!! Pisses me off too much!!

Thanks...I figured the Revolutionary War navy flag was too vague for some to figure out.

I don't see how cheap oil and a client state to invest in is going to make America broke in the long run. Hell, if 50 years of creeping socialism couldn't do it, there is no way one war is going to do it.

But how stable is the region? theres still a lot of warlords in afghanistan... and they're not all friendly.

My cousin was one of the canadian soldiers sent over with the coalition. While he was hunting down terrorists his direct instructions were to ignore what they called "civilian disputes" while they were hunting down al qaeda. He saw on more than a couple occasions militia groups line up people and shoot them, to sastify old tribal revenge from the civil war.

If you look for afghanistan news you'll see that theres not a lot of stability in the region and even less US involvement to sort it out. Once Afghanistan fell out of US spotlight, everyone sort of assumed it some great and happy place to live after the taliban was taken out of power. The US essentially destroyed a country for the sake of freeing the people and hunting down terroists, then left the people in the hands of their local warlord and expected everything to be "Ok".

This is why i'm against a war in iraq, unless the US is willing to fully establish a new Iraq, not just take saddam out of power then they have NO right going there. It's great to do the right thing and protect america, it's not right to destroy the stability of the lives of the people involved of the conflict.

if English is a second language which obviously confuses you, you may want to think twice about trying to insult someone in it...

Upon careful study of your previous retorts, I can safely proffer that common sense is a foreign language for you as well.

obviously you either didn't read, or didn't understand the meaning of my previous post. The first part wasn't to insult you because of you English skills directly, it's just that if you are going to take the effort to insult someone - it doesn't really work if you can't form a sentence in the agreed upon language. The second part was meant to insult you directly. Flooding the forum with 'i hate BUSH' a hundred times is a really clever argument that I can't believe I never thought of before! It just serves to reveal and prove that your idiocy is not mistakenly placed on your english skills, rather your lack of intelligence overall.

sorry, but the campaign in afghanistan yielded zero practical results, ok, the people might live better now (how the fuck do you know anyway, you saw it in cnn maybe?), but that war was not aimed at liberating the afghans as far as i was concerned.

the taliban is alive and well thank you very much, unfortunately of course.
i would like to see terrorists hanged as much as anybody but all that bombing was as efective in taking the terrorists down as a man trying to kill flyes with an axe.
