Dear Friend of America's Survival,
The Soviets lost their war in Afghanistan, but the Russians have won our war in Afghanistan.
Frank Gaffney, Executive Chairman of the Center for Security Policy, has callled a proposed pullout of U.S. troops from Afghanistan "surrender." But it is madness to keep them there. More than 6,000 veterans die by suicide every year. Many are Iraq or Afghanistan veterans. There are many risk factors, but one is the feeling that their sacrifices are not appreciated and that the cause is hopeless.
President Trump has no choice but to pull our 14,000 troops out.
Look at this August 22 CNS News headline: US Combat Deaths in Afghanistan Hit Highest Level in 5 Years; 2 More Casualties on Wednesday. CNS News reports: since Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) began in October 2001, 2,428 U.S. personnel have been killed in the conflict, 1,904 of them in combat. Some 20,000 have been injured.
Fouad Ajami, described as "one of the world¹s foremost authorities on Middle Eastern politics and the recipient of the 2006 Bradley Prize for Outstanding Achievement and the National Humanities Medal of 2006," wrote The Foreigner's Gift: The Americans, the Arabs, and the Iraqis in Iraq. But look at Iraq today. It is under the effective control of Iran. The "liberation" backfired. The "liberation" of Afghanistan never ends. It cannot succeed.
What have we go to show for it? Our troops see that Muslims are still killing Americans. They can't organize a civilized society, even with U.S. help. They will always be killing one another.
Get US out of this 18-year conflict. We can't protect the borders of Afghanistan without protecting our own.
But make no mistake: this will be a victory for Moscow. The "peace talks" are taking place there.
Our only option is to use Predators to target the Taliban or other Moscow-supported terrorist groups which remain and begin to occupy Afghanistan. We have to use the same military strategy Israel uses against Iran. It's the Red Jihad.
The U.S. never had a strategy for winning in Afghanistan. By losing, Moscow wins. Was this the plan all along?
Cost of the war in Afghanistan in financial terms: $975 billion and counting.
For America's Survival,
