The Fight In Afghasistan Is Generational : Barack's Surrender of Iraq To ISIS Is Proof(Video)

This is a very good summation of why we must continue to be in Afghanistan. And why we need the Trump administration to lead the fight to kill the terrorists that base there and everywhere else that are hiding out. We cannot run from this fight as we did in Iraq.

As the author reports, the fight is generational to secure the world from terror and to believe we can just turn away is delusional and a real national security risk if we follow the path we did in Iraq.

The entire problem of terrorist flooding nearly the entire world can be boiled down to one single factor, and that's the lack of leadership that understands the problem. A leadership failure by Barack or a plan for chaos and conflict.

Barack's decision to surrender Iraq to the terrorists was the beginning of ISIS deaths of more then a million lives, and the destruction of much of Iraq and Syria's infrastructure, let alone the flood of millions of refugees, along with ISIS terrorists into Europe and North America.

I believe Barack's surrender of Iraq was by design. Barack's connection, capitulation to the Iranian leadership is clear and began when he refused to aid the 'million man march' in Iran for freedom. What other reason could he have to allow such a huge sign of the people rising up against the Muslim Mullahs then he agreed with the tortured Iranian leadership. Was it his kinship with the Iranian Persians? 

Ever wonder why Barack went all out to get the nuclear deal with Iran done? The over all result to date is Iran is headed to control the middle east, especially when they go nuclear in the next several years. And when Iran begins the battle for Syria once ISIS is defeated there, they will be unstoppable.

And just like Barack made sure they would dominate the region. The lose of blood, treasure and destruction in the middle east can be laid at the feet of Barack and his followers.

Why We Can’t Leave Afghanistan Now

The mission in Afghanistan has entered one of its most crucial periods. Now is not the time to pull back. The United States and its allies must finish the job. The U.S. has been involved in combat operations in Afghanistan for almost 16 years. To put that in perspective, consider that an 18-year-old soldier serving in Afghanistan today was only 2 years old on 9/11.

Yes, we have been there a long time. And as the Trump administration considers the way forward, it’s important to remember the goal of our mission. Unfortunately, too many political and military leaders over the years have wrongly defined success in Afghanistan, leading many Americans to question why we’re still there.

Lofty “nation-building” goals—ensuring every road is paved, every girl goes to school, and everyone gets the right to vote—while all good things to aspire to, are not the reasons why we went to Afghanistan. And they are not the reasons why we should remain.

This is a deadly region. Twenty of the 98 U.S.-designated terrorist organizations have bases in Afghanistan and Pakistan, making it the highest concentration of terrorist groups anywhere in the world.

The No. 1 priority of our leaders when it comes to defining our national security policies is to keep the U.S. and our allies safe.

Watch the video :

Here’s the reality: The Afghan military is far from perfect, but perfection is not the goal. The goal in Afghanistan is to get their forces to a level where they can handle the insurgency themselves, without tens of thousands of Western troops on the ground. That is why America’s mission in Afghanistan should be focused on training and funding the Afghan military so that it will eventually be able to stop interference from outside powers and it will be able to prevent the establishment of terror bases that were there before.

That should be our goal. Nothing more, nothing less.

Losing our focus and losing our resolve could mean disastrous consequences down the road.
We need look no further than what happened in Iraq when the Obama administration deemed the war over and prematurely pulled out our troops there. Iraq is a case study in how to get it wrong. The abrupt U.S. troop withdrawal in 2011 deprived the Iraqi government of important counterterrorism, intelligence, and training capabilities that were needed to keep the pressure on al-Qaeda, which then morphed into ISIS. This allowed it to regain strength in a much more permissive environment.
As the rise of ISIS and Iran’s new-found meddling in the region have shown, a war isn’t over simply because we want it to be or because a U.S. president says so.
We should not make the same mistake in Afghanistan.

This is a generational fight that is going to require a generation of commitment.
