Enduring Commitments Abroad

•, by Rep. Ron Paul


Last week President Obama made a surprise pre-dawn trip to Afghanistan to mark the one-year anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden and to sign a document further extending the U.S. presence in that country. The president said, “We’re building an enduring partnership. … As you stand up, you will not stand alone.” What that means in practice is that the U.S. will continue its efforts to prop up the government in Afghanistan for another 10 years beyond the promised withdrawal date of 2014.

To those of us who believe the U.S. should leave Afghanistan immediately, the president retorted, “We must give Afghanistan the opportunity to stabilize.”
