According to Wikipedia there are approximately 90,000 troops deployed in Afghanistan on average. So at about 330k a year per soldier, it is costing a couple BILLION to be there just with man power. Forget the tens of millions lost in equipment. We also have 69% of all the soldiers killed under this leadership in the last 3 years. 1,188+ soldier’s families and friends grieve as a life changing event has happened to them. They feel they are important. Many soldiers have died under many previous presidents. Many more than what happened under Obama. There is a difference. Obama criticized the previous leadership for letting war continue and leaving places like GITMO open. He promised the people that given a 4 year job he would be different and that he was serious about his conviction. Well, after his 4 year job comes to an end many soldier’s families are saying he was no different. He has gotten us nowhere in Afghanistan and we lost some dear people. We have now also continued to spend Billions of our hard earned tax money towards something being massively mismanaged. We have the technology and should not have lost one single life. It is distressing to me that liberals diminish Obama’s war mongering as less than someone else’s and not horribly mismanaged.
