Young Americans for Liberty comments on Afghan War

University of Cincinnati Young Americans for Liberty chapter president, Chris Morbitzer, comments on Obama’s decision to send more troops to Afghanistan on

If we claim now that we must stay to train Afghan security forces and support Afghan agriculture because the elected government is inept and the people cannot be trusted to their own affairs, then we are indeed an occupation force engaging in nation building, the very activity in which the president insists we must not engage. The president stated that he is committed to full withdrawal from both Iraq and Afghanistan and the decommissioning of the prison at Guantanamo Bay according to a relatively swift timeline. However, the president’s track record so far with regard to holding fast to his early promises has been less than ideal, and only time will tell if the president does indeed follow through with his plan for withdrawal.
