I feel it should only be a mall amount 1000 or less troops left. I don’t think would should give more than the other guy 500 million at the most. We need to stop supporting all these countries, while those in power keep most of the money for themselves.

Now, was this agreement between the USA and North Tajikistan or was it South Tajikistan?

Since partership implies something for both sides involved, you’d think a Strategic Parternership agreement would have something in it for the U.S., other than a ten year opportunity to spend our money and spill our blood for Afghanistani ingrates. The Taliban says we have bought ourselves some kind of pipeline to the oil of the Caspian Sea region, but I suspect we’d see more oil from new drilling on U.S. soil with far less military spending and risks of loss of American lives. Obama doesn’t impress me as much of a negotiator.

One can only hope that the USA can get out of Afghanistan ASAP without another plug nickle nor another drop of young Americasn for this inept, corrupt, duplicious crowd.

Sounds like the U.S. entired into an agreement somewhat like the agreement PM Chamberlain entered into with Hitler. The “players” may be different but there just seems to be a similarity as to the agreement’s longetivity.

So what are the points in this agreement? I would be pretty certain it’s not the 1 or 2 vague sentences in this article. Anyone care to share where the journalist cared not to?

The USA *invaded* Afghanistan. As in attack. As in being the aggressor. Yet you people think it is ‘support’, and that the Afghans being killed by the USA should be grateful?
