Why We Fight

Let's see how the "Four Freedoms" are doing in Afghanistan, these days. Freedom of speech and expression. Freedom to Worship God in his own way. Freedom from want. Freedom from fear. We have been in Afghanistan for years and things are going sideways if not backwards. It is long past time for a rethink, no?

Update:Although it isn't one of the four freedoms, we are also supposedly fighting to establish good governance, on behalf of the Afghan people. The theory is, if the government is good and decent, the people won't turn to the Taliban. How's that working out?
