US taxpayers to fund Afghanistan until at least 2024

We can’t fund America, how are we going to fund Afghanistan? via US, Afghanistan reach deal on strategic pact | CNSNews.com.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The U.S. and Afghanistan reached a deal Sunday on a long-delayed strategic partnership agreement that ensures Americans will provide military and financial support to the Afghan people for at least a decade beyond 2014, the deadline for most foreign forces to withdraw.

The pact is key to the U.S. exit strategy in Afghanistan because it establishes guidelines for any American forces who remain after the withdrawal deadline and for financial help to the impoverished country and its security forces.

For the Afghan government, it is also a way to show its people that their U.S. allies are not just walking away.

Our goal is an enduring partnership with Afghanistan that strengthens Afghan sovereignty, stability and prosperity and that contributes to our shared goal of defeating al-Qaida and its extremist affiliates,” said U.S. Embassy spokesman Gavin Sundwall. “We believe this agreement supports that goal.”

Notice he doesn’t say defeating the Taliban which is the primary extremist group in Afghanistan. That’s because Obama has been negotiating with them in an attempt to legitimize the Taliban.

Most taxpaying Americans likely have little or no interest at all in such a partnership – one that wastes billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars, results in U.S. troops being needlessly slaughtered, and provides security for Afghan drug lords. From which the Taliban and Karzai prosper.

How many candidates for election in the U.S. are running on a platform that ends U.S. funds to foreign nations?

  1. To permanently defeat al Qaeda, ideological offensive is needed and that can come only from Hindu Islam ie non-Arab Islam of non-Arab Asia which is neither Jihadi nor supremacist but extremely liberal and friendly to all;not anti-West at all;democratic and non-violent.It is represented by none other than Gandhi-the miracle man of 20th century. So Hindu Islam is the key-thing.
    Whole AfPak is Old Hindustan where is buried the antient tradition of Hindu Islam.Let us recover and re-find it again.Only Hindu Islam would solve the problem.When Pakistan would follow the ancient original path, this problem would automatically solve.They made it a playground for Arab Islam, and that is the problem.
    Let Pakistan become “Muslim India” or “Islamic Republic of India”, all this terrorism and violence would disappear.The problem is Pakistan and nothing else.Its ideology of Medieval anti-Indian Arab/Muslim Imperialism which is outdated now.How long Arab Islam can be used as a tool for ulterior motives?

  2. Yeah… We can’t fund America….one more reason to vote for RON PAUL!

  3. Don’t jump down my throat for this. Demand annual poppy crop in return for funding. Legalize heroin. Sell it to registered addicts through selected pharmacies. Slap on a Federal sales tax. Service deficit. While you’re at it: legalize cocaine and marijuana. Slap on Federal sales tax. Pay off deficit. Buy me Cuba in gratitude for geat idea.

  4. Legalizing and controlling the sale of recreational drugs would put the gangsters out of business, minimize gang warfare, save billions on policing (which is not succeeding), reduce the incidence of robberies and other crimes committed to raise money to buy drugs for use or re-sale and free-up cops to work on other crimes.

    • exactly Ronengland….also another reason to vote RON PAUL :)

      • Ron Paul? You must be the south end of a horse travelling north! But seriously, Americans have GOT to get rid of obama before he bankrupts the country funding his muslim buddies!
