Skip to comments.McMaster Defines ‘Winning’: ‘Allowing Afghanistan to Be Afghanistan’
Posted on 08/26/2017 5:45:04 AM PDT by davikkm
U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters that President Donald Trumps administration will win in Afghanistan by allowing the country to be Afghanistan rather than trying to create a state in the U.S. image. Winning in Afghanistan is really aimed at allowing Afghanistan to be Afghanistan. As the president said, not to nation-build, not to create a state in the U.S. image, said Gen. McMaster when asked about President Trumps newly unveiled strategy to end the nearly 16-year-old ear in the country.
For years, Afghanistan has been plagued by various persistent problems, including a deadly heroin production and addiction epidemic as well as the centuries-old child sex abuse custom known as bacha bazi (literally playing with boys), among others. Afghanistan also suffers from endemic and widespread corruption that is funneling funds to terrorists and has contributed to the death of Americans.
In 2015, SIGAR revealed that the common practice of sexually abusing boys was punishable by death under Taliban rule, but it was resurrected after the terrorist groups regime was overthrown by the U.S.-led invasion in 2001.

What???? it already IS Afghanistan!! its a backwards hellhole and will always be one!!
This guy is clearly off the rails.
Guess that Muslim thinks it’s fine to have little girls kept out of the schools and the little boys used for adult men to rape. GET RID of McMaster, Mr. President.
U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster
That’s a joke.
Let Islam be Islam.
Its their country. If they want to chain kids to bed as sex slaves and grow poppies..then get the hell out
Dumbest declaration of a win I have ever heard. I am really disappointed Trump is continuing this unwinnable war.
Exactly. We can’t fix the world.
Unfortunately some posters here think that they know more than LTG McMaster and President Trump. Guess what-—you do not!
Fool. The penalty for attacking the USA
should have been death by getting eaten by pigs on
the Internet for any Islamic terrorist,
AND the country being thereafter run by women.
McMaster defines winning: Getting rid of every MAGA proponent around Trump, ensuring Obama Generals have final say in every policy and keeping the swamp at full strength.
You left out that he wants Israel destroyed.
I see this so differently, and I may be wrong, but follow me on this. We are wiping out the Isis bad actors in Syria/Iraq so were do those that slip through go? Pakistan/Afghanistan... this is a wack-a-Mole operation via our spec operators to play the Orkin Man, and really eliminate the pest once and for all, or diminish them so they are manageable. The foreign policy leverage will ask them to change or we stop doing bizz with you. It took balls for PDJT to realize I can’t walk away from Afghanistan, but I can make my Mark in history by pretty much eliminating these douchebags. Gorka and Bannon were too doctrinal to see the long term picture, and that is ok too, sometimes these types are better off as cheerleaders rather than being on the field.
I strongly recommend reading Michael Yon’s commentary on Afghanistan after Trump’s announcement this week. This guy has spent a huge amount of time on the ground in the Middle East (Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.) since 9/11. I think his take is pretty spot-on.
Afghanistan: Trump Going in Circles
He wants to finish it. Rules of engagement and Obama made that impossible.
I agree with you. Thinking about it, rejecting nation building translates to "let Afghanistan be Afghanistan". I deplore their customs, but it's up to them to define their culture. I've always thought it would make more sense keeping Afghanis from leaving their hellhole than trying to change them.
Do you like a member of cair’s diversity outreach program being put in charge if nsa counterterrorism?
That being: a murdering moslem hellhole...let it become a clearing house for fleeing terrorists.
Then all we have to do is blow it up once in a while.
