Brent: End Afghanistan Occupation

Brent Andrews: I am hearing the general say the loss of these 30 including SEALS in the helicopter crash will not affect the overall operation in Afg, but it will. The will for this war was already sapped and this is another blow that cannot but turn our heads from inflicting violence on the poor, spreading “freedom” with bombs and rifles, and losing our troops in battles that don’t even matter to overall operations. If we choose to inflict death to carry out our political designs, we will get death in return. We should make the best of this awful loss and resolve to end the occupation and scale down our military in a drastic way. Else, we can only expect more disasters like this one. (AP file photo)

Question: I'm with Brent on this one. I can't see what purpose is served to keep putting our troops through the meat grinder to protect Afghanistan. It's time to bring those troops home. What do you say?
