This was an oh, my god, moment to me when Hamid Karzai, President of Afghanistan, in a press conference, said that he believed that Afghanistan will need U.S. troops and assistance for the next 15-20 years at a cost of $150 billion per year. Who knows how many lives will be lost there.
This is craziness. Afghanistan is corrupt beyond belief. We are paying the Taliban in order to get safe passage for our supplies, which the Taliban then uses to fight our troops. This is a policy for disaster and we need to rise up and tell the President and Congress we won't stand for this policy.
