This is what we are fighting for?

If these Afghan soldiers do not care and would rather smoke their weed and allow the Taliban to take over then I say screw it let it happen.Or bomb the place up and leave.This is pathetic GB our troops.

  • LOL sounds ilke how some of the businesses are run around here. Point is that attitude is everywhere. Thats what we are there for to teach the knuckleheads what to do to secure some safety. They can't let up or they will be in danger themselves having to babysit these guys.
    Even so i am sure not all of them are like that.

  • This is pathetic, but it is the cost of maintaining an EMPIRE. We need to bring our troops home and concentrate resources HERE.

    While we are criticizing the Afghan soldiers, who obviously have no cause to fight for, let's not forget that illegal drug production has SOARED in Afghanistan since the US has been there, and soldiers historically have used drugs ( Remember Vietnam?) Drug abuse is also a problem among our troops. It is due tor what these soldiers are being subjected to.

    Our country is going down the hole and the war machine is still gobbling up massive amounts of money, resources and LIVES. Bring them home,as this vid shows it is all a LIE and we can never "win". That's why you won't be seeing this clip on the news.

    "Misuse of prescription drugs occurs at a much higher rate among U.S. troops than the general population,

  • "teach the knuckleheads"

    Hmm...Maybe they know a thing or to already, since Afghanistan has been dubbed "the graveyard of empires". Who are the knuckleheads here? At least they are in their own country, not ours.

  • They get some freedom and all they want to do is smoke it up.Maybe if they could be taken into boot camps and go through all our own troops do then they would be much more effective?
