Letter to the Editor
After 9-11 America went into Afghanistan to get those who were behind the attack. Now we have killed Osama bin Laden, who was in a different country, and I say it’s time to declare mission accomplished and get out.
We’re spending 2 billion dollars a week there and for what? To prop up an unelected drug dealing dictator who has more in common with the Taliban than with us? There’s no reason for us to be there. We aren’t accomplishing anything. We aren’t supporting the “good guys” because there aren’t any good guys there. Before this last week Osama bin Laden created the illusion we had some kind of mission there. That illusion is now gone. We need to stop draining the life out of America by wasting resources fighting wars with no possibility of a positive outcome.
