Americans are tired of nation building Islamic countries. They have seen their relatives and neighbors die and get wounded to help a bunch of pedophillic ungrateful savages. Americans also oppose any long term agreement that commits the US to propping up the corrupt Narco regime of the Karzai mafia.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Most Americans want U.S. troops out of Afghanistan and oppose a significant long-term commitment to support that nation’s economy and security, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Friday.
But the poll also indicated that most Americans favor keeping some U.S. forces in Afghanistan to help train that nation’s troops, and to continue missions targeting al-Qaeda.
Taken together, the findings suggest “Americans essentially want to be done with Afghanistan,” said Ipsos pollster Chris Jackson.
lmost two-thirds of the 776 Americans surveyed in the online poll said they did not want Washington to be committed to supporting Afghan economic and security development that long.
Seventy-seven percent said they wanted all U.S. combat troops – excluding trainers and special forces – to leave Afghanistan by the end of 2012. Nearly the same amount, 73 percent, said they did not want the United States to establish any permanent military bases in Afghanistan.
Six out of ten Americans said they favored having the United States keep forces in Afghanistan to conduct missions targeting al-Qaeda and 57 percent were in favor of having troops in the country to help with training.
Mitt Romney should heed this poll. He is advocating more nation building in Afghanistan which is opposed by most voters. Romney needs to realize that Americans are tired of nation building and wnat nothing to do with the Islamic world. One area I have no beef with is keeping small special forces in Afghanistan to kill Al-Qaeda or Taliban terrorists. Other than that, we need to go. We need to economically and fiscally rebuild our own nation.
