    Default Trump bringing home 1/2 the troops from Afghanistan

    Reports are the Trump Admin is planning to bring home 1/2 the troops from Afghanistan, in the next few weeks-few months. Like Syria, this is a move most people, both left and right would applaud, but the media/politicians, both left & right, will spin as negative.

    "One official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said a decision had been made and verbal orders had been given to start planning for the drawdown. The official said timelines were being discussed but it could happen in weeks or months."

    Do you realize that if the troop draw downs continue by 1/2, then mathematically we’ll never get all the troops home

    I’m all for it but Trump owns what happens after we leave....not that I will care. I may, but I may not. My point? Trump better be making this decision on something more than a campaign promise.

    A president owns what happens in a country after we pull out troops and don’t have a presence there? Talk about a globalist view...

    If Trump has been president during Vietnam, we would have won in six months with very little loss of life amongst our troops.

    He doesn't actually mean it, it's just his transparent way of setting up Trump to take responsibility for everything that goes wrong in Afghanistan for eternity. The question is, is he that desperate, that deranged or just trolling again?

    I don’t know what you THINK “globalist view” means but thank you. Of course Trump should own the ramifications of his decisions. Duh! I thought you conservative types were suppose to be big on personal responsibility?

    We all know they have been fck’d up in that part of the world for the last 2,000 years. I’m thinking in terms of immediate repercussions directly attributed to us pulling out abruptly.

    It was messed up before us, it’s messed up while we’re there and it will be messed up when we leave (which I prefer.) My position is if our troops are REQUESTED, part of the conversation should be said Nation becoming the 51st State or how much they will be invoiced.

    How do you quantify that? Who has requested our troops there?
