Americans continue to pointlessly die in Afghanistan
Yesterday the Obama administration, through Sec. State Hillary Clinton, declared the third-world shit-hole known as Afghanistan to be our "most important non-NATO ally". As soon as Hillary departed Afghanistan yesterday, the Taliban, who had just murdered a woman for some imagined transgression against Islam, killed 6 US service members to commemorate her visit.
Is it just me or does the idea of US service members dying for a country of drug-addled, 11th-Century, nomadic savages, border on the insane? Pres. Karzai is doing whatever he can to keep the millions in US aid coming while not angering the Taliban too much.
Of what geographical, economic, diplomatic, or military value is Afghanistan to the US? I can't think of a single reason why any, ANY American should die on behalf of these primitive, opium-smoking tribesmen.
