the REAL reason for more troops going to Afghanistan

It's got nuthin' whatsoever to do with "helping" the Afghan people to "rebuild" (and, you know, US help to rebuild - -  that's worked out so well for Iraq and Kuwait and a few other places, so Trump figures we should do it again?).  Heh.  Yeah.  Right. 

We go over there, blow things up, kill millions of people in the past 17 years for no good reason at all, then we go in and pretend we're going to help them rebuild what WE messed up for them in the first place?  AND AND AND . . .  we didn't even come close to accomplishing our "stated goal" of *getting rid* of ISIS.  We've made them stronger.  Yeah, that's working out real well.  For them.   

It's got everything to do with money, as usual.  Now, Trump's a businessman so this is "sensible" to him, I suppose.  But it's purely out-and-out greed and there must be other ways to acquire the rights to some of these minerals without continuing to also tear things apart over there.  It's been nothing but a disgrace to America, so far.
