Sixteen civilian men, women, and children were murdered in Afghanistan. Enough. End it.

My letter:

President Barack Obama,

Across the political spectrum, Americans want the U.S. military out of Afghanistan now. This is an election year. It might be wise to start listening.

For the love of GOD, please stop the slaughter. What are we doing to our neighbors and our own country? Our foreign policy has the US in countries all over the world and we are slaughtering civilians now in Afghanistan as we did in Iraq thanks to Bush and his administration. We are NOT doing our country good Mr, President. We need our military here now in OUR country protecting our airways, our airports our coastlines, our streets. We are making enemys Mr, President. There will be retailation. The US is no longer the the country it use to be. Since 9/11 Bush and his puppet masters have put us in more danger than ever by this witch hunt for terrorist. Ask yourself how we would deal with another country setting up bases in the US? How would it effect our relationship with that country?
The attack on Iraq was WRONG President Obama and any critically thinking American knows that. We then had to go in and repair the mess we made to their country costing our economy billions of dollars not to mention the very high count of civilian and military casualties. WHY? Their country was no threat to us. Now of course, they may well be. What have we done and why do we continue. While walking into the mess our former President made I realized your task was great, but our need for a peaceful end has not been met. I am not a political science major, but I know there are better alternatives to war and occupation. This is not a game of chess Mr. President. There will not be a winner. Bring our military home and make our borders strong. I thank you for what you have tried to do for our country but we have not addressed our most critical issues. What are we doing?! You are still our commander and chief.. You must know what is going on. Please stop this maddness. “night raids, drones, helicopters shooting children, or U.S. troops waving Nazi flags, urinating on corpses, or burning Korans.” Really? This makes me ashamed. Please stop putting our military in harms way all for greed and power. There is corruption. Find it and take it out. This is not what we are supposed to be about. Hopefully we can safely scrape this off our shoes. With regards and respect Mr. President bring us home and negotiate peace!
