Graham warns withdrawing from Afghanistan

Sen. Lindsey Graham on Sunday reiterated his warning to President Trump not to reduce U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan below 8,600. Graham also said he’s planning legislation that would require the secretaries of Defense to certify that reducing troop levels below 8,600 would not create an additional national security risk for the homeland.

I wouldn't say it'd lead to another 9/11 but instead to ISIS 2.0

It wasn't the Taliban that attacked us, it was AQ. AQ became a decentralized organization reliant on inspiring lone wolf terrorism after 9/11, not a training camp running network of cells, and it's been in the Arabian peninsula as of late anyway. We never dealt with Saudi Arabia turning a blind eye to "charities" funding Salafi groups, Saudi Arabian funding of mosques in the west as it's "contribution" to handling the migrant crisis has led to pockets of western muslims in enclaves having far less moderate norms than in the Arab world (weather girl in Iraq doesn't wear a Hijab, the affirmative action hire in Sweden is in garbage bags head to toe) with the children of Immigrants being a problem; Take a person struggling with bicultural identity issues bc they're growing up in what amounts to a colony, in a country where nobody has the confidence to actually provide something to integrate into bc the left's screeching says that's wasist, and then have them turn inwards to religion as their mosque spews Suadi funded Wahabism so extreme it's unpopular outside ot Suadi Arabia, Afghanistan, and Su'uni jihadist organist organizations.

Go after the money, screw having troops on the ground when we can track every transaction on earth. they can't do shit if they cant pay for plane tickets. Get the NSA off their asses, this is their job, why are we funnelling billions into new data centers when they can't even clarify what they've got until 6 months down the line. let them suicide their neighbors, see how long they tolerate that. We shouldn't be their police, if they want peace they will make it happen, but as long as big daddy America is sitting there with the guns and the bombs no one is going to see a need to do anything about it. mark my words the minute we pull out the entire nation will have a reason to stop this shit because they will see that it's targeting them instead of the foreign invaders. Why can't we practice warfare like we used too, using the forces at our disposal to eliminate the threat and moving on. Why are we trying to rebuild a nation we owe nothing too?

Seems to me that Americans are war-weary; left, right, and center. Only the politicians want to play war. Withdraw the troops and secure the borders. Let the Middle East burn.

Well I don't know about all that but I will say that since the War in Iraq and Afghanistan started it has kept those Terrorists Organizations busy to the point that an attack at that scale or even less was greatly reduced...greatly.

I can get behind that but it would have to be a total cutting all ties with the mid-east including Isreal and let the chips fall where they may And accept the fact that a lot of bad shit is going to happen in the mid-east.
