Denmark leaving Afghanistan in 2013.
President Obama announced this past week that Afghanistan will be our longest war. His announcement earlier that all troops would be out by 2016 is cancelled.
To listen and watch, if you could bear it, the Republican and Democratic Party presidential debates, you would never know we are at war.
Apparently the only foreign country we are interested in is Denmark.
The last few days this has all changed.
Donald Trump criticizes Jeb Bush and Jeb’s brother George for getting us into the Iraq war on false pretenses.
And Bernie Sanders offers support to Obama keeping our troops in Afghanistan.
LBJ tried the guns and butter thing. It didn’t work out well.
It’s a bizarro world we live in.
The good news is that the campaigns are talking about war and peace for the first time.
The bad news?
We are still at war in Afghanistan.
And BTW, Denmark pulled its troops out in 2013, twelve years after the invasion.
