Well, they're right... one group is still holding territory in Afghanistan and one group is not and when America finally gtfo they can say the same thing again.

Wow, done in one. Kudos.

Have fun illiterate mud hut dwellers! Enjoy your pointless tribal wars and opium fields for the next hundred years. We will be curing cancer and sending humans to Mars so we might not return your phone call.

BTW. Next time we have any issues with you blowing up our buildings we might just vaporize you from space. Stay golden pony boy.

Hugs and Kisses!

They had a few snipers where they would go hunt down people on mountains. Basically the Canadians were on safari.

If you're going to celebrate, Taliban, please be decent and just shoot the girls instead of throwing acid in their faces.

This may be the first time that the phrase "freedom from the Canadians" has ever been uttered by anyone.

It was nice of the canadians to show up and hold the jackets of the US and UK soldiers that did all of the real work.

I thought that was the whole deal of the Quebecois separatists.

But yeah, I also found that a horrifically silly phrase. I mean, of course nobody wants mayo on fries, but that's hardly new heights in oppression. Kinda pales next to killing girls who learned to read.

Well, not entirely. If it were the territory we were after, the Afghan people would have been a rather small speed bump in grabbing it, and the country would have been ours back in 2001.

Failure on the part of the War department to do its job.
They could have wrapped this shait strom up by now, but they are going to be backing out, retreating from a shiathole of a country just like Veit Nam all over again. The Shait winds are stirring, Randy bo bandy.
It's going to be a shait tsunami.

Multiculturalism is a very recent western democratic thing. Even here it is working poorly. Their societies don't have that value at all.

I stopped paying attention to Afghanistan after watching "This Is What Winning Looks Like" sometime last year.

Remember all the outrage (and justifiably so) when the whole Sandusky/Penn State thing blew up awhile back? Now, picture yourselves on foreign soil asked to train certain people that openly and literally f*ck children and your bosses back in the states laugh and tell you to just deal with it when you try and report your findings.

yeah because the hindu kush is a hospitable environment that lends itself to easily being conquered if history has taught us anything.
 
2014-03-14 11:47:12 AM  
I hope Karzai can live long enough and keep being an obstinate prick, so we'll throw our hands up and leave. Right now the generals are begging to leave about 10,000 Americans in Afghanistan to train the ANA. The same ANA that has regularly turned their own weapons on us, facilitated Taliban ambushes, and provided countless intel to insurgents. Let's not even talk about the Afghan officers in on the opium trade.

F*ck them. Let's go home.

The taliban sounds like a guy who lives across the street and heckles his neighbors. They can't just firebomb his house because he's got women and kids there and the neighbors aren't savages, so they put up with it. Eventually, the neighbors get better jobs and move to better neighborhoods, but the heckler moons them as they're driving away and claims that he "won the neighborhood".

Considering that we upgraded from Leo 1's to 2's because of it. We really needed tanks. I don't know either.

It said that the Canadians followed Holland, Denmark, Australia, Poland, and Spain in "retreat and failure."

They're right, you know.

You may be confused.  They'll be running the country soon.

Oh right, it was the Taliban that caused 9/11. I thought it was Iraq.

/sarcasm. I know it was neither.

Check out the documentary "The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan." I'm surprised NAMBLA's home office isn't in that toilet of a country.

The motive of war is generally that the nation winning it has something to benefit by it.

I am very much aware that this was a prolonged warfare, and that noone benefitted by it except those who wanted to make money. Like mercenaries civilian contractors.

It was nice of the US to fark off to Iraq because their commander in chief had unresolved daddy issues, and leave us holding the farking bag. Had we known you were going to do that we'd never have joined your crusade in the first place.

BalugaJoe: Canada has an army?


Well, it's certainly not as big as it used to be.

A lot of them got killed fighting in your war, and a bunch more got killed by your heroic fighter pilots who were so hopped up on speed that they couldn't tell the difference between a scheduled live fire exercise in allied held territory and the enemy so, just to be on the safe side, they murdered them .

We would have no issue conquering Afghanistan if we didn't care about civilian casualties.  The Taliban not only don't care about civilian casualties, they actively pursue them.  It's the only reason that they're still effective.  It's the only reason they were ever effective.

Obviously the only long-term solution is to make the whole country look like Dresden and start over.
