    I feel that if the Alcaida morons want to hide in Pakistan let 'em. Pakistan can boast all they want about how they've got nukes. Deep down they (Pakis') know that if they #$%& around and press a button it's no holds bared on 'em. So let them hide that's OK. We (America) got somethin' for 'em. Peace

    I don't know what you are pointing to; Do you really think that the people we kill do not have relatives, who hate our guts? Of course they hide somewhere, either Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Palestina, Sudan and a lot more. Sorry to say we created that hate by invading whole countries, making stupid statements and movies, instead of going after the real culprits in the first place. This has cost us fortunes and 6000 plus of our troops lives.
    Are we any safer now than when 9/11 happened? To tell you the thruth, no! My feeling is that eventually these people will look for revenge. Where this revenge will come from is too early to tell, certainly our "drones" kill a lot of them, but makes them even more determined, as I said relatives will then look for revenge etc etc. So it is like a "virus" which we are spreading because of our wrong foreign policy.

    I like to add to that, that it is a good thing to get out of Afghanistan for 100%, because if we stay we will only create more aversion with the local people there. It is time for the U.S. to change our foreign policy from thinking that we are the worlds policeman. We should stop to force our culture onto others; results of that were described in another "thread" about the fires in the clothing industry in Bangla Desh. Leave other cultures alone in their own way of life. The US first has to clean up their own mess at home. The power roles in this world can drastically change because of China who is paying for our debt, so we may not be a world power for very long if we do not watch out. So who determines then who are terrorists?

    Exactly as you say Dutch, END all operations in Afghanistan. We can use that money here to improve infrastructure and reduce deficits.

    I still have no idea what this "cupiosidity" wanted; I do not see any comments; a Repub may be?
    Anyway Obama said it when Karzai was here, so we wait and see, but as I said the whole thing about so called terrorist all over the globe is sorry to say only expanding; the US will never learn by trying to root that out, it will only create more of them and gets them more desperate and more mad. I guess only a policy change will work; let these countries or others like the UN deal with it not us.
