Security in Afghanistan
Through a demonstrable lack of will to do what it takes to win in Afghanistan, Barack Hussein Obama is ensuring that America and her allies suffer defeat there. Afghan President Hamid Karzai and the combined might of US forces and our allies there could not even preserve the life of Karzai's own brother. Improvised explosive devices kill every day there and now more precision munitions coming in from Iran are proving ever more deadly. The restrictive rules of engagement and tentativeness of allied forces have done the near impossible- unified the Sunni Taliban and al-Qaeda with agents of Shia Iran- a few short years after they were killing each other. Our failure to go all in and wage total war to win has brought together Muslims from Chechnya and beyond on the ground in Afghanistan to murder us. After a trillion dollars spent and thousands of lives lost, there is no security in Afghanistan.
