Afghan war, now less popular than root canals
A newly released poll of the American people shows that support for the 12-year long war in Afghanistan, if you can even call it a war rather than a quagmire, has dipped below 20% for the first time. It also reveals that most Americans want US troops out of Afghanistan before the Dec-2014 beginning of draw-down.
First, who're these a-holes who still support the war? 20% means that one out of every 5 people polled works at the Pentagon or for a defense contractor because they're the only ones who're enjoying this.
Can anybody tell me what we've accomplished in 12 years? Who have we gotten rid of that won't come back the day after we leave? I'll be happy to entertain any and all arguments for our continued participation in this costly fool's errand.
