  1. Ya mainly USA/ French/British created so called Taleban/ muzaheddin groups .. once fought against Russia..! And those countries together destroyed killed millions of Afghan … Afghan air is so polluted by their bomb and ammunition.. worse than Hiroshima and Nagasaki!

  2. Why do I keep hearing veterans talking about how they knew ten or more years ago this is how it would end?
    I've got nothing but respect for the rank-and-file in all of the Armed Forces but you guys have a very exclusive position from which to view things and I guess it's kind of obvious most of us didn't have a clue that they could never unify enough to even identify with the country of Afghanistan as its current borders are drawn. First I want to thank you all for serving and then I want to- admonish you for leaving us all in the dark. We could have been out of there 10 years ago had we known the reality of the people on the ground. Seems to me a lot of the invested blood-sweat-and-tears the lives lost and the money spent could have been much less. We know you guys aren't in any position to critique your superiors and wouldn't want you to however never hesitate to share some information you have that we do not because we can go stand on that (Capital) Hill and fight for you here at home, but only if it's something we know about. And I'm not trying to make a big issue out of it right now I just wanted to throw that out there for consideration because you guys have a lot of support here (even though is sometimes hard to tell), so you don't have to stick your neck out by yourself, we can help you with that, we want to help you with that, and I just wanted to let you know that.
    Keep us in the loop please just be careful how you do it no reason information sharing like that would have to be anything other than "Anonymous"

  3. Honestly it is good for the Afghans that it is under taliban control. Over the years they have made it clear that they do not want a democracy and they do not support western countries. Why are we pushing them into a centralized democracy?

  4. we know german are very infatuated with tibet.
    so next send some troops to tibet?
    u are wonderful great superior democracy country. c'mon, do it, save tibet.

  5. Sir you are a powerful country. Please save the children and civilians of Afghanistan from Taliban.
    Sir, if big countries like Asia do not help anyone, how will small countries do
    Sir you are a powerful country. Please save the children and civilians of Afghanistan from Taliban.

  7. 'No' – Afghanistan is not lost because it was never found. Afghanistan is not a country. It has no borders. The 'region' is a collection of waring religions, ideologies and serfdoms. The Media keeps referring to it as a country; but those borders and concepts of nationalism don't exist for the larger majority.

  8. Afghanistan never 'belonged' to the West so that it can view it as being 'lost'. The question itself shows the undying hubris of the West towards the rest of the world.
