After reading through this Rolling Stone article about the infamous Afghan "Kill Team," I was appalled that our soldiers have been unilaterally murdering innocent Afghani's through premeditated acts, and though it may be argued that war itself is to blame, there is no doubt in my mind that these soldiers should not have been in Afghanistan in the first place, or at the very least, pulled them out of there instead of sending them back in for multiple tours.
Does anyone know how long we've been in Afghanistan?
This October 7th marks the 10 year anniversary of Operation Enduring Freedom. Oh the irony. A DECADE spent, trillions of dollars wasted, countless lives lost, and the list goes on...
Don't get me wrong. I understand that freedom does come at a cost. But, I think it's about time we brought our troops home. Too many loyal soldiers are getting manipulated into serving the wrong causes, subjugated to immoral actions, and devastated by disorders and post-war syndromes. In the end, whose going to take care of those soldiers that have lost it out there in the war-zone? War. It's such an ugly thing. Yet, everyday people find ways to justify it's asinine existence. It's all fun and games, until it's happening right outside your door right? Instead of creating more issues abroad, it's about time we fixed the problems escalating at home. After all, the chickens will come home to roost...
Now, to ease your mind.
