Does Obama REALLY want to leave Afghanistan?
By James Wilson

ACTION ITEM

I just wrote my Senators and Representative demanding withdrawal from Afghanistan.

I encourage you to do the same via DownsizeDC.org’s campaign.

The hardwired message says simply…

Remove our troops from Afghanistan now.

You may also borrow or copy these additional sample comments…

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates claims the President's only interest in Afghanistan is getting out. (http://nyr.kr/1gCupfv)

I wish that were true!

Instead, Obama wants an agreement with Afghanistan to keep special forces there until 2024, claiming it's to maintain security gains.

That's a lie! The National Intelligence Estimate says that even with thousands of troops and lots of aid, that nation is "at risk of devolving into chaos." (http://bit.ly/19YyWHl)

Our blood and treasure aren't helping the Afghans.

So why stay?

The REAL reason is to maintain "hegemony" over the region and keep out Russian and Chinese influence (http://bit.ly/1ajd7CK).

In short, the U.S. will borrow from China in order to COMPETE with China on the other side of the world.

I DO NOT CONSENT to such insanity!

Both Congress AND the President would do well politically to pull out ASAP. A December 30th CNN survey shows that this is the most unpopular war in history...

* 75% oppose ANY troop presence after this year

* A majority want pullout before then. (http://bit.ly/1ajd7CK)

If you do so, you could take credit for saving...

* possibly thousands of troop casualties, and...
* tens of billions of dollars

Take steps to make this happen immediately. If you don't, I must ask…

If you're not serving the American people, who ARE you serving?
