U.S., NATO officially end 13-year war in Afghanistan as Taliban violence spikes

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - The United States and NATO formally ended their war in Afghanistan on Sunday with a ceremony at their military headquarters in Kabul as the insurgency they fought for 13 years remains as ferocious and deadly as at any time since the 2001 invasion that unseated the Taliban regime following the Sept. 11 attacks.

The symbolic ceremony marked the end of the U.S.-led International Security Assistance Force, which will transition to a supporting role with 13,500 soldiers, most of them American, starting Jan. 1.

Gen. John Campbell, commander of ISAF, rolled up and sheathed the green and white ISAF flag and unfurled the flag of the new international mission, called Resolute Support.

Amerika stood by and watched as the late Soviet Union foundered in a war with Afghanistan for over 10 years.

And then like the dumb-asses they are, the PTB sent our boys in there for 13 years of more death.

But by God, the Poppy fields are healthy!


No worries. Now Obama wants us to go war with N Korea and Russia! That'll work out well, too. Well, for the bankers and munitions plants, anyway. The rest of us are still stuck here in this shit-hole third world country, eating scraps and hand-outs from the bankers.

Ain't Life Grand!
