Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was likely killed Saturday in a U.S. drone strike in a remote area of Pakistan, a U.S. defense department official said.Why? We're leaving the place. If you're not going to win the war and impose your will on the country, then what's the point of killing? Whether the guy was bad or good, I don't see the point in killing him. Like the Democrats, to take one example, the Taliban isn't driven by individuals, it's driven by ideology. 4 years from now, Bernie Sanders won't be running for president, but they'll still be some socialist nutbag in the Democrats' primaries.
If we're going to get out, let's stop killing people and get out. If we're going to stay, let's bring in 250,000 troops and turn the place into the 51st state. This pointless, neither-here-not-there involvement is nonsense.
|We killed people in a country we'll be leaving in a little while. Yay?|
