Surprised I didn't see it posted anywhere. And to preface -- I know there are too many contextual complexities to name regarding this.

Props to this administration for pushing to get this done. Endless war shouldn't be what American citizens view as 'normal'.

This would be a huge win for Americans and Afghanis if this works out as planned:

The US and Nato allies have agreed to withdraw all troops within 14 months if the militants uphold the deal.

President Trump said it had been a "long and hard journey" in Afghanistan. "It's time after all these years to bring our people back home," he said.

Talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban are due to follow.

Under the agreement, the militants also agreed not to allow al-Qaeda or any other extremist group to operate in the areas they control.

We need to get all our troops out of Iraq as well, stop with all regime change, and stop trying to be the world's policeman. The Neocons and the military industrial complex will always push for endless wars.

Well then just how are Americans companies supposed to make a buck then? My God what is halliburton supposed to do.

If you don't think our military actions around the world have more to do contracts and to make people rich than anything else you are fooling yourself.

Ya can't sell more bombs if you don't blow some up. Send troops overseas all kinds of spending.

That is why we push for endless wars. It is about the money.

Your 'attack the straw man' skill level is maxed out. Impressive.

By the way, 15 years ago called, they want their democrat talking points back.
