I agree with @realDonaldTrump! Its time to declare victory in Afghanistan and bring our troops home. We spend $46 BILLION a year in Afghanistan! How about we take that money and build roads and bridges and strengthen border security here in America? #AmericaFirst
Get out of the Middle east!! Nuke up and close the damned borders. Get women out of the military combat positions NOW. Make America Great again. Not fricken Afghanistan!! DON’T CARE!!
Ted Cruz or Pence
If they dont reopen the gov soon they will have no choice. We arent going to strand tens of thousands of us troops in a war zone with no way to get home and no support.
Well, works for me. Troops home that is.
BTW I’m now able to post without review! woohoo! thanks guys, i will not abuse this privilege.
Afghanistan is our Western Front or launching ground for China. In case we go to war. That way they will have 2 fronts. The other side being Japan and South Korea.
Rand's foreign policy in indistinguishable from Obama's and that is one reason he'll never be the GOP nominee.

I have to respectfully disagree with you. I think Rand would make an outstanding commander-in-chief!
Obama took us into Syria and Rand was against that.. so was President Trump!
Put them on our border. Armed.
Cruz is DOA for too many reasons to list, Pence not inspiring.
Cruz has a much better chance than any Democrat you can name me.
We couldn’t sustain a front there with certain opposition from Russia, Iran, and Pakistan in addition to China.
Don jr. for veep.
Rather than invade their countries , kill their leadership and convert them to Christianity the easy strategy is to get them fighting and feuding against each other. They will happily engage in such insanity since heaven requires you die in battle so they kill the nearest Moslem who they consider not Islamic enough!
I work for afgans
Its a complicated part of the world
Know that Pakistan needs to be kept in check (isi )
Turkmenistan is another
The taliban are entrenched
In short we have a giant base there now
Not so sure we need patrols outside Kabul. The only real City
We can deploy anywhere around the world from america in a few hours. We have orbital weapons and other tech to handle the rest. Having troops on the ground in the me is a long dead idea. We are going bankrupt, things need cutting. SA, China and the rest can stand up now.
Yeah, I haven’t seen Pence be much of an “attack dog” on behalf of Trump. As far as I can tell, Pence is to Trump, as Bush was to Reagan.
Think Pence would pull us out of the middle east? Fight for a wall? Hold NATO’s feet to the fire? Raise tariffs against China?
I just don’t see it. His main appeal I can see is those poor souls who want the President to be the nation’s spiritual leader, or the women who swoon because he won’t cheat on his wife.
