‘We Should Just Leave:’ Trump Takes A Look At Pulling Troops Out Of Afghanistan

The Trump administration is considering the ramifications of paring back the U.S. presence in Afghanistan as part of its ongoing strategy review in America’s longest war, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Trump’s national security cabinet is bitterly divided on the future U.S. role in Afghanistan. Senior national security officials like Secretary of Defense James Mattis and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster are reportedly pushing Trump to allow a surge of approximately 4,000 troops into Afghanistan, while White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon has lobbied against the effort.

I agree, time to go. No good can come of offering aid to Muslim states.

    Muzzies are never worth fighting for.

      You beat me to it.

  • Bataviawillem

    Western people have nothing to gain by going into to islamic countries.

    • PaulW

      Though apparently our damn governments think Westerners have plenty to gain by bringing muslims into our countries.

      • Our traitor class at work.

        • Starlord

          Left work today early for an appt. Out in suburbs… counted 5 Hijabi’s, non Islamic types 0 within two blocks of work. This area is very “western” … there are way more than the gov is telling us.

            They’re everywhere now and it’s only going to get worse. Thank you Harper, Trudeau and the rest of the politicians responsible for enriching us this way. I wonder what it will be like in a decade or two (actually, don’t have to wonder: look at Sweden or France).

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    They can’t be helped, ever.
    Like water seeking its own level, Muslims will seek barbaric tribalism at every opportunity.
    They and their practices can only be quarantined.

    • Alain

      It is also imperative to remove them from our land.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Afghanistan has defeated many armies. Leave them to war with Pakistan.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Actually Afghanistan hasn’t defeated ANYTHING, ever.
      They just never had an occupier that was as inhumane as they are.
      Great Britain, USSR, or America all could have all turned that place into a grease stain on history, and probably should have.

      • Millie_Woods

        Tactical nukes. Total war is the only way to fight a war.

        • WalterBannon

          use nerve gas


          Start with chemical (nerve gas). Nuclear is last ditch

  • Gary

    Pull out all the troops to bring them home and do Homeland security to stop the Jihad slaughter and boot out the 25, 000,000 illegals bilking the welfare and getting away with crimes in Sanctuary Cities .
    Let the muslim nations devolve even more and just slaughter each other for allah and leave us alone.
    They can even pull out of their agreement to protect Canada and we can watch the Liberals curse the USA because our Health Care system won’t have any money since we will need our own Military-ready forced and a Coast Guard/ navy full time where the US will NOT bail us out.

    Leftist and socialist will see the funding for the useless Courses on Campus dry up and Tuition shoot through he roof while the CBC will be a luxury that met its end .

  • Never Forgive Never Forget

    I agree, let’s leave these haji to fight amongst themselves and focus on precision OPs to take out the Taliban and ISIS. Trump needs to make us the country carrying that big deadly stick again. We need to stop foreign aide and taking refugees from Muslim countries too.

    • Tooth&Claw

      Recognise that Saudi Arabia is no friend, but a frenemy, one that would knife you at any open opportunity as well.

    • Shebel

      Why do you take refugees ?
      Your Country is so small .

    The west has spent well over $140 billion to bring “freedom and democracy” to Afghanistan and it has been a complete and total failure. No amount of virtual signaling, foreign aid, materialistic goods, western concepts of nation building will ever bring any form of stability to a nation with an entire population of primitive people with barbaric cultural practices with a corrupt central government that only has control over the capital Kabul while the rest of the nation is controlled by tribal rule and or Al Qaeda. Most of all it is an Islamic nation that has conditioned its population to despise unbelievers no matter how much good we believe we are doing there. Afghanistan is still a threat to the west due to mass Islamic migration to countries such as Germany were many Afghan migrants are committing rape in western nations. The solution to Afghanistan is to give them a choice either A) forced conversion away from Islam B) mandatory quarantining them there or C) classifying them as enemy combatants and killing them without taking prisoners.

    There was always one purpose and one purpose only for invading Afghanistan, IMHO: to snag Osama bin Laden. This could have and should have been done before 2001 was out. We should have then left, with the only promise being to come back and kick ass if the jihadis raise their heads again.

    However, the US trusted its Afghan “allies” and bin Laden was able to escape from the Tora Bora mountains. And then the US decided to indulge –once again, and despite all evidence against it– in nation building. Lives and money squandered on behalf of thankless creatures.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    12,000 Police officers in the city of Chicago…and they expect 4,000 grunts to make a difference in Afghanistain?

  • Hard Little Machine

    All our heroin already comes from Mexico so yeah let’s let Afghanistan dissolve

  • WalterBannon

    pull out

    we should never have stayed there after initially taking out Bin Laden’s training camps, and also Bin Laden was hiding all that time in Pakistan so it was Pakistan we should have been bombing the hell out of.

  • Shebel

    I don’t understand why we are over there in the first place.

    I think that is what Trump promised.
    To pull out ALL the Troops.

    I guess the GLOBAL BOSSES——


  • Shebel

    It is only worth leaving if you don’t AID—-
    The Ones You are leaving.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Afghans have proven to be unworthy allies. Leave and if Al Qaeda makes a comeback, send over the Air Force to bomb the shit out of them.

  • Samuel Q-L

    The US should leave NATO too..
