Trump: Great Strides Made in ‘Ridiculous’ Afghan War

Whenever President Trump is dealing with NATO issues, there is always the question of whether Trump is going to praise NATO as the greatest thing since sliced bread, mock them as a relic of the past, or somehow manage to do both at once.

Meeting NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday, Trump played up the pledges for increased military spending, while pushing for even more. He also cheered the “great strides” made in Afghanistan militarily by NATO, while terming the war ‘ridiculous.’

Trump is well known to be weary of the Afghan War, and hopeful of making a negotiated deal with the Taliban to withdraw from the nation. It’s a good thing this was known beforehand, as he did not elaborate beyond calling the war “unfortunate” and “ridiculous.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, one can not have this both ways; this war cannot have been both critically important, and "ridiculous" simultaneously.

You know as well as I do, that the war against Afghanistan had utterly nothing to do with Usama Bin Laden, and everything to do with controlling the oil pipelines, the rare earth minerals, and the opium poppy trade.

I hope and pray that a good negotiated settlement can happen; there have been far too many American military members who have been killed, or maimed for life here, in pursuit of that control of the oil pipelines, the rare earth minerals, and the opium poppy control.
