It will take 600,000 Troops to put a counterinsurgency to work and make it work and will take years to accomplish. The U.S. is not going to do that, so let’s get out now.

DRONES: This is a Terror Weapon. Once an area is hit with missiles fired from the Drones, the total population lives in fear of it happening at any time, any place. Just think if you are sitting in your home in America or any country, and Drones are flying above, silently, so high you can not see them with the naked eye, 24 hours a day, and missiles have killed people in their homes in your town. You can’t go outside, or stay inside, no place is safe. Drones kill one “Enemy” and 20 civilians, that is the average per firing of a missile from a Drone. STOP THE KILLINGS.
