How much have we spent on the war in Afghanistan since the beginning EIGHT YEARS AGO? $200 BILLION. How big is the total U.S. individual State deficits this year? $126 BILLION. We are cutting schools, teachers, firefighters, infrastructure is being neglected, but we are trying to “rebuild Afghanistan”, for what? OIL AND ITS PIPELINES.
From NY Times Editorial “President Obama in Kabul” Mr. Obama made the right decision to send another 30,000 troops to help drive the Taliban out of important strongholds. But there is no way to hold those cities and towns without an effective Afghan government (at both the federal and local level) to take over. And after eight years of fighting, more than 1,000 American lives lost and more than $200 billion from American taxpayers spent, Mr. Karzai’s failure to build a credible, honest and even minimally effective government remains the Taliban’s No. 1 recruiting tool.
PLEASE TAKE ACTION NOW. GET YOUR CITY COUNCIL TO PASS A RESOLUTION TO END THE WAR FUNDING, ENCOURAGE YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO VOTE NO ON THE $33 BILLION MORE DOLLARS TO BE WASTED IN AFGHANISTAN. WE CAN NOT AFFORD THIS WAR ANY LONGER.
