Feingold on War

How many Senators will join Sen. Feingold in asking for an Afghanistan timetable? One trillion dollars spent on war over the last ten years. Thousands dead. For what?

No More Soldiers Should Die in Afghanistan

Memorial Day should be an anti-war day. Yes, fallen (dead) soldiers should be remembered. But wouldn't it be far better not to have dead soldiers in the first place? This is especially true over the last ten years. Think of the soldiers lives wasted in Iraq. And, for what? Can anyone answer that question? Think of the ongoing war in Afghanistan. When was the last time in history that Afghanistan was brought under foreign control? The Russians couldn't do it, why do we think we can do it (and why do we want to)? Again, can anyone explain what we are doing in Afghanistan? Fighting Al Queda? Then why aren't we fighting in Pakistan or Somalia?

We need to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan as soon as possible. Let's not have to remember anymore dead soldiers from those worthless causes.
