Why Were We in Afghanistan in the First Place? by The Elephant's Child

Apparently there are a number of people out there who do not understand why we were in Afghanistan in the first place.

On September 11, 2001, a group of terrorists who called themselves “Al Qaeda”, hijacked four American .commercial airliners, and crashed them in suicidal attacks into the World Trade Center North Tower, in New York, the Pentagon, the South Tower of the World Trade Center, and one ended up in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. .The Trade Centers collapsed, huge loss of life, around 3,000, including the ordinary passengers on the airline. The passengers on the plane that crashed in Shanksville had attacked the terrorists in the cabin of the plane and caused the crash there. If you don’t remember, there are historic videos available and you can refresh your memory. Shocking day, We pursued Al Qaeda to their origins in Afghanistan. That’s why we were in Afghanistan.

There are plenty of videos available on the incidents of 9/11, and if you do not remember, you should search them out. A date, as the saying goes, that will live in infamy. But also the reasons why we are currently in Afghanistan and just why it really is a big deal.

We seem to have another group currently, notably AOC and her little clutch, who make a lot of noise, but seem abysmally short of knowledge of history and custom. Even Utah Senator Mitch Romney chimed in to announce that “It is our National Character to welcome people who need asylum,” which is patent nonsense. Everybody that wants to get across our southern border to get a better job is pleading “asylum”, but unfortunately don’t qualify. Mitch has been around long enough to know better. He just wants to blame Trump who he doesn’t like.
