NM Senator disagrees on Afghanistan

Press release from Marty Heinrich:
(bolding mine)

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement today regarding the path forward in Afghanistan:

"Since 9/11, we have been at war in Afghanistan and it is now the longest war in our nation's history. Sending additional U.S. troops into Afghanistan is not a substitute for a sound strategy and won't get us anywhere new. It is long past time for the government of Afghanistan to shoulder their own defense. While America must be able to project a counter terrorism presence wherever terrorist groups like ISIS or Al Qaeda seek refuge, we can never and should never be the de-facto security services for Afghanistan, much less the world."


I don't always agree with the senator on military matters, but I do on this.

1. The actions he will take will be based solely on profit.

He is being told there is a way to get the minerals to an american company that he can invest in.

Trump's true character was being caught off guard with the news of the 10 sailors, his response was what you would hear from someone who was just told the kitchen is out of decaf, "that's too bad"

He doesnt care about human life, any human life, other than his own, this includes his children, and it is because he is a sociopath.

An actual, real sociopath.


a person with a personality disorder manifesting itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior and a lack of conscience.

4. The republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief is a FAKE commander

I wouldn't follow Comrade Casino to a freaking pillow fight. He has given no one any reason at all to trust his judgement, courage, integrity, or loyalty to the USA.
