Moore: Gingrich right on Afghanistan

Posted by richardmoore on March 12, 2012 at 3:40 PM

Newt Gingrich has called for withdrawal from Afghanistan and called the task "not doable." He is right, and the latest meltdown of a U.S. soldier only highlights this. We simply are not serving a national interest there as we once did.

 

We've spent enough in blood and money in this troubled region, in fact, and our continued involvement only makes terrorist attacks on us more likely.

 

Two of the four GOP candidates now support withdrawal, Ron Paul is the other. Seriously, isn't it time to come on home and put an end to this frivolous mission?
