Arizona has decided it can no longer fund the costs of organ transplants for those on Medicaid. Nineteen people, who could have had organ transplants (the organs were donated), but couldn’t finance the medical costs themselves, died. This is unacceptable when we are pouring billions a month into the financing of the Afghan war.
Worse still, President Obama has decided that we are no longer getting out in 2011 and announced a new date of 2014, which you can be sure will be extended. The latest outrage is that our soldiers are being shot and killed by the very Afghans they are training to defend their own country.
Six American soldiers were shot and killed last week by an Afghan border guard in training. There have been a number of such incidents. We should get out of Afghanistan immediately.
The Times on Dec. 2 described the Afghan government as follows: “From hundreds of diplomatic cables, Afghanistan emerges as a looking-glass land where bribery, extortion and embezzlement are the norm and the honest man is a distinct outlier.”
Who can defend offering up American lives and treasure to support such a country? If terrorist camps reopen when we leave, bomb them incessantly with drones and other aircraft and use special forces to conduct surgical — in and out — strikes.
