Obama wishes to bring back the troops from Afghanistan, but is that the best he can do?
So when will this finally be over? If we look at the past few years of USA doing their "thing" in Afghanistan all we can see is destruction and sadly most of it caused by USA troops rather than the Afghanis themselves.
I have often wondered what wrong has anyone done to be totally pushed into the corner and have the world applaud everytime some young child is killed by the American troops. Then I look at the news articles that state that it's all because of 9/11. So if 9/11 is the reason for thousands of innocents being killed in Afghanistan then the cycle should be kept in motion, right?
If we follow the formula USA has used to take revenge over the deaths of innocents in 9/11 then is there someone to blame if those that have had their family members killed in Afghanistan take matters into their own hands? Or are we really so blind that we feel that a person with a beard who speaks a foreign language is not as worthy to live as one who belongs to the United States of America.
We have seen the American troops ridicule the prisoners to the max in Iraq and then in Afghanistan. Making fun of their religion and their culture as if it's their birthright to do so. We see that every day drones are sent into the borders of Pakistan where majority of those that die are innocent children. Imagine if even one child was killed by an attack every other day in any other country in Europe, the whole of UN, Nato and so called World Powers would have wiped the country with sanctions and the alike.
The best thing Obama could have done is to pull them all out, but then again the contracts to rebuild Afghanistan and the vast amount of natural resources that were just found few months back in Afghanistan would probably land in someone else's hands. And we can't allow that, can we.
Hoping for peace to prevail in the region, because sometimes, enough is enough!
