    Nowhere did I say that it began as an anti-terrorist alliance. Read carefully, understand completely, then respond. You might also look at the link I submitted.

    So you don't know what 'the message' is. Why did you bother posting?

    First read what I wrote, then read your nonsensical reply.

    I'll quote it for you again since you have such a short memory:

    NATO was supposed to be a defensive alliance for a potential war in Europe, instead it soon became a military tool for Western imperialism. It should have never gone into the Middle East.

    Yup. Our resident neo-con failed to read the first part of his own link:


    On 12 September, NATO decided that, if it is determined that the attack against the United States was directed from abroad, it shall be regarded as an action covered by Article 5 of the Washington Treaty.

    This is the first time in the Alliance's history that Article 5 has been invoked.

    You said this
    NATO did not start out as an anti-terrorist alliance, that was added in later. Your reading comprehension is terrible.
    And you still haven't familiarized with Article 5. You seem to be celebrating New Years a little early.

    Are you being deliberately thick here? Read what Article 5 says. The fact that it was the first time it was invoked means nothing! It is all right there! http://www.nato.int/terrorism/five.htm

    Where is that message you were referring to?

    America is in the process if losing the WOT. There will be more American bloodshed on the city streets.

    which will prolly happen given Afgh history.
    I don't knw how we can win a foreign civil war -we cant kill enough Taliban, we can't occupy forever.

    The easiest thing to do is just leave. It might even be the smartest move. I think we should play it out a bit more
