Afghanistan is, almost definitively, a ForeverWar.
Trump was right and the war hawks were wrong in the Trump decision to get us out of Afghanistan. O'Biden (or his puppet masters) is going about it in the way most harmful to American armed forces, America's Afghan allies, America herself and American foreign interests, which is right in line with everything else the rabidly anti-American Marxocrat Party has done and is doing.
But that is not to say we shouldn't be getting our forces out of Afghanistan.
The opposition argument almost universally declares that Afghanistan is the only place on earth that Islamic Jihadists could ever possibly plan another major WMD attack on the USA. And that only by occupying Afghanistan could we ever be certain that another Islamic attack will never again be plotted out. And that the fact that we haven't had another 9/11 since we started occupying Afghanistan proves the point.
The very idea is just as nutty as is Islam itself.
The 9/11 attacks were not even planned in Afghanistan. That's just where the perps hid after Bush started pursuing them, under the protection of the Taliban. But it isn't just Al Queda, and Taliban, and ISIS, and/or any other Islamic group pursuing Islamic Jihad against us, Israel and the entire non-Islamic world. All of Islam, everywhere on earth, has such groups and has such plots being plotted.
And each such group, such as Al Queda, is not solely located or even headquartered in Afghanistan. They all have branch offices all over the world. The neocon war hawks are stuck in the old territorial war stratagems of the past, but this is not a territorial war; it is an ideological war, and borders have little or nothing to do with it.
Would-be tamers of wild Afghanistan, from Alexander the Great down to today, have given up on trying to even understand, let alone control in any way, the ungovernable and ever changing tribal nature of Afghan culture, or anti-culture. Whatever seems fixed and normal today in any part of that country is subject to radical change at any moment in time.
Trump was right; we need to get out of there. It's a ForeverWar.
We see in Afghanistan Islam itself in microcosm. Islam is as deadly to decent human culture as is Marxism.
Looking back at those webpages, it appears that if our amendment were ever adopted it might get all the big shots running the Marxocrat Party in America out of American citizenship, and with any luck at all, completely out of America.
Whatever will be will be.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Sign the Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12
Seek the Truth; Find the Way; Live the Life.
Please God, and Live Forever.

The truth is, America could in all probability actually do what Alexander the Great and the rest failed to do - but that would require unlimited war, Russia-like willingness to use scorched earth tactics and throw away men and warmachines alike without any care in the world and, of course, God-awful costs that such endeavour would require. So the war-hawks are half-right - it can be done, but America as it currently is won't ever do it. Primarily because for all of it's current problems, America is not some barbaric Marxist dictatorship willing to sacrifice millions to get this. And military action is not that needed - you could always neutralize the Islamic threat of the area by a combination of total economic blockade and systematic purges of black-market arms and food smugglers through the American intelligence apparatus. Fascist China handed the world a very good lesson - why bother with military conquest when you can beat most of your adversaries to their death by using economics?
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
