The War

One of the reasons terrorists destroyed the twin towers of the World Trade Center was to destroy America’s economy. At this point, I believe they’ve come close to accomplishing this.

I cannot even begin to fathom the amount of money that has been spent on war since that horrible day. Sure, I was one of those who wanted the U.S. to go after Bin Laden and destroy him, but we ended up in Iraq instead of Afghanistan. Now the war switches to Afghanistan, and I see no end of war in sight.

I want this war to stop now. I want the killing of our American soldiers to stop now, and I want them back home now. I want ALL THIS MONEY THAT'S BEING SPENT ON WAR stopped now, so this country can spend it in building back up this country that’s falling apart. America's infrastructure is falling apart. People continue losing their jobs, their homes, not to mention their dignity.

What have we the American people gained from this endless war?
What have the 911 terrorists gained from their 911 attack?

I want this war to stop right NOW!

Thoughts please.

1. If containing/disrupting/destroying Al Queida is our goal, why can't we create a no-mans land area surrounding their location in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Then we could focus all our attention on keeping Al Queida inside the area and we could bomb and other wise attack them.

2, I'm not optimistic that we can ever succeed in our current plan for Afghganistan.

3. This is not an excuse for not ending the war. However, if there are no wars to fight then corporations will not have large orders for expensive weapons. Won't this add significantly to unemployment and worsen the economic situation?

4. I read the book "War" and I will never get over the hell we ask our military to endure. I hope every Congress person, in fact every American, will read this book.

I believe Afganistan has unbeatable warriors, therefore, we nor any other country stands a chance fighting against them.

I don't think the unemployment would worsen if the war ended. All that money that's spent on war could be used to create jobs here.

I'll add that book to my list of must read.
