Saw a few minutes, it sums up the Afghan and Iraq Wars: our soldiers are targets for the Taliban to try and kill.
We spend trillions of dollars trying to keep our soldiers alive. The Taliban spends a micro-drop of their drug profits burying explosives.
Winners: Military procurement profiteers. The vehicles used cost hundreds of thousands each and will be abandoned in 2014, so we'll have to buy 'new'.
My solution? Start attacking every road, bridge, tunnel: paralyze all non-US military movement, extract our troops. Start today, keep it up until 100% are gone. Don't delay.
