We are never leaving Afghanistan

Antiwar.com
by Justin Raimondo

11/22/13

Rather than ending the war, the Obama-Karzai pact institutionalizes it, making the occupation of Afghanistan a permanent feature of US military operations in the region. It even maps out a place for this new US colony in the annual budget, and there is no time limit on any of this: '2024 and beyond.' The agreement means we?ll be in Afghanistan forever, obligated to not only defend its government but to make sure that government is functioning at a bare minimum...
