    Do you support Obama in continuing the Afghanistan war?

    I would like to get an idea of the number of conservatives versus liberals who are opposed to Obama's continuation of the war in Afghanistan.

    Please feel free to also express your reasons for either supporting or opposing Obama's decision to continue the war.

    I wish you'd had a "hell, no!" option.

    In for a penny, in for a pound. Nation-building is a demanding and time-consuming process, and if we didn't have the stomach for it we shouldn't have started on this course.

    From a pragmatic point of view, a stable, pro-west democracy would be very beneficial in a resource rich country such as Afghanistan, and could help stabilise the region, and my personal point of view is that the Afghan people deserve a stable democracy.

    No I do not, it is not the job the US military to police the world. We should have just went in there, get Bin Laden, bring him back to the states to execute him. Afghans don't want us there, granted the country is more or less a failed state but even the slowest person in the world can tell someone if they want them around or not. All this war is doing now is costing US military and Afghan civilian lives and flushing tax payer money down the drain.

    For now, yes. I still think there is the potential for a positive outcome. This does need to be questioned at regular intervals though.

    Re: Do you support Obama in continuing the Afghanistan war?

    No it's not worth it. It doesn't seem the people there are even interested in a free society, therefor they won't be free. All attempts to enforce such ideals will continue the police state there which doesn't even accomplish the goal of liberation. It's a bottomless pit we can keep throwing cash and lives into. There are reportedly some untapped resources there besides opium... Probably enough for most of us to keep sacrificing so only a few can exploit those resources unfortunately...
