So why did we invade Afghanistan?

Because of 9/11?

To remove the Taliban?

Regime change?

Dismantle Al-Qaeda?

Human rights?

Women’s rights?

To educate the people?


Too often we let our emotions get the best of us. We see an apparent act of aggression as justification to charge head long into conflict without regard to consequence. 

We should not justify any more unnecessary conflicts with our support in the hope of bringing freedom or justice from the barrel of a gun. 

Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya… 

When will we learn?
