“… the State Department is about to begin formal negotiations over the extension of U.S. troops past 2014, a top State Department official said Tuesday.”

-excerpt from article-

Last week, U.S. and Afghan negotiators met in Kabul to talk about the Bilateral Security Agreement that will govern the extension of U.S. troops past 2014, when President Barack Obama said the combat mission in Afghanistan will end and the U.S. will complete the transition of the entire country to Afghan government control.

Also last week, Biden told Americans during his Oct. 11 debate with Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan that U.S. troops were leaving Afghanistan by 2014.

“We are leaving in 2014, period, and in the process, we’re going to be saving over the next 10 years another $800 billion,” Biden said. “We’ve been in this war for over a decade. The primary objective is almost completed. Now all we’re doing is putting the Kabul government in a position to be able to maintain their own security. It’s their responsibility, not America’s.”

    Was anyone as suprised about this as I was? I couldn’t believe it… The President and the VP said we’d be out of Afghanistan in 2014. I’m sure that this is just a big misunderstanding…

    I have found a bit of information the military industrial complex would like to keep silent.

    Operation Cyclone was the code name for the United States Central Intelligence Agency program to arm and finance the Afghan mujahideen during the Soviet war in Afghanistan, 1979 to 1989. The program leaned heavily towards supporting militant Islamic groups that were favored by neighboring Pakistan, rather than other, less ideological Afghan resistance groups that had also been fighting the Marxist-oriented Democratic Republic of Afghanistan regime since before the Soviet intervention. Operation Cyclone was one of the longest and most expensive covert CIA operations ever undertaken; funding began with $20–30 million per year in 1980 and rose to $630 million per year in 1987. Funding continued after 1989 as the Mujahideen battled the forces of Mohammad Najibullah’s PDPA during the Civil war in Afghanistan (1989–1992).

    Can we stop policing the world and nation building? Our country is falling apart, yet we focus on other sovereign countries? Let’s bring home all troops and stop the military industrial complex. After unconstitutional wars, it’s time we took our country back. War needs to be declared by Congress. War needs to be quick and violent. Not PC with nation building. LIVE FREE! GJ2012!
