|Obama addressing troops spouting nonsense|
US troops first arrived in Afghanistan *less than a month after the 9/11 attacks* on New York and Washington DC, unseating the Taliban before bedding in for a conflict, which has claimed the lives of more than 2,000 US military personnel.
Some 13 years later, and after *spending more than $1 trillion on the war, * the US is preparing to pull most of its combat troops out before the end of this year
More then 1 trillion dollars. A nation decimated. A country in chaos. Thousands dead- That's just on the US side of the equation! And what goal was achieved?
