My Note To Senator Casey On Afghanistan

Senator Casey,

I am opposed to any further escalation of our military presence in Afghanistan. The target of our efforts should be terrorists in Pakistan, not the Taliban. The Afghan people must have self-determination, aided by regional powers, but not by US forces propping up a corrupt government in Kabul. US troops must be withdrawn. It is not the task of the United States to nation build everywhere in the world. When will we finally learn the lessons of Vietnam and Iraq and do only what is truly in our national interests? No more troops should be sent to Afghanistan.
