    Afghan Forces 'Push Back Taliban' From Western City Of Farah


    Residents look at a military vehicle that was destroyed during fighting between Afghan security forces and Taliban fighters in Farah Province on May 16.



    The whack-a-mole battle for Farah will undoubtedly continue through spring and summer.
    Afgans have been at this for thousands of years, we accomplished our mission, time to leave.
    Meh........ If your purpose is to get into a spitting contest, move on, you have nothing to add. Thanks

    That's why we should find and destroy every Taliban stronghold we can until the Taliban ceases to exist.

    They shouldn't have teamed up with Al Qaeda.

    We will apparently be stuck there until at least 2020. Bolton, Pompeo, and the GOP never met a war they didn't like.

    After all, MIC CEO's have families to feed.


    In May and June of 2017 the Republican Congress attempted to disallow pre-existing conditions and strip healthcare from 24 million Americans. They failed by only 1 vote.

    Protect your healthcare. Please register and Vote Democrat on November 6.

    The Soviets failed because The United States taught the Mujahadeen how to defeat them. The Soviets were winning, until we got involved.
