    And what is the reason we are still there.

    To the powers who are :

    Have you not looked at what happened in Iraq after our pull out ? Why do you think it will be any different here ?
    Quit wasting the lives of our people and pull out now.

    Its 'war'. Kill & be killed.
    Is there ever a point to this kind of madness? Its getting so that writing about these two horrors- Iraq & Afghanistan has become superflous.

    I agree this seems to be all the news that is generated anymore. I'm truly surprised we all still post about it. I mean, all we can do is say the same thing over and over again.
    But on the bright side, it gives us a chance to stay in touch with each other.
