It would be cool if we stopped giving them so much money.

We have to keep the war going, the dems want it to actually be worse then it is.

Why? And what should we do instead?

Why should we? And anything else. We’re kinda in an economic crisis.

Two Ukrainian soldiers pinned down remain remarkable calm under heavy fire.

Ok,..and?

Under that logic we would not have funded the Afghans in 1979 when the Soviets invaded.

That's a narrow view of history. 

The correct answer is we should have assisted the Afghans after the Soviet Union withdrew. 

Aiding them hastened the fall of the Soviet Union, along with a number of other issues.

It also led to 9/11 and thousands of dead Americans.  Why are you neolibs always in favor of sending other people's kids to die?

It was not our initial involvement that led to 9/11, it was our complete abandonment after 1991 of the Afghans. There, the Mujahideen were able to win the Civil War. 

The great book Ghost Wars goes into all of that. 

I'm leaving a softball over the plate here for a Biden criticism.....as in time will tell if our withdraw last year will have similar ramifications.
