Would the U.S. immediately get attacked if it decided to withdraw all its troops from Afghanistan?

Any time anyone mentions possibly end the war in Afghanistan (which has lasted twice as long as WWII at this point) there is always a group who claims the war is about "national security".

How is this war about national security? Will it literally go on forever? When are you "secure"? Will you be secure before you run out of money?

    It was originally about national security and achieving justice for 9/11. Now it's about trying to justify the amount of time, money and lives that have been sacrificed to try and create a stable Afghanistan.

    Truth is we're probably more secure from a terrorist attack now although were also more at risk following the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq aggravating radical Muslims.

    Chances are that we will be attacked again at some point. It was 8 years between the first and second attack within the U.S. I don't believe the war in Iraq is keeping the terrorists out of here. That seems very unlikely to me in view of the fact that it only took 19 terrorists to bring down the twin towers, and hit the Pentagon, not an army of them. If terrorists do come here in large numbers, it will probably be through our open borders with Canada and Mexico. There may be hundreds of them here now. Who really knows who has come through these borders?

    Not unless the federal government engineers another attack on the American people like it did on 9/11.

    It took the Brits 29 years to defeat the IRA.

    But the Democrats said it was the right war!

    What happened?

    Democrats will say anything to discredit but never have fixed a single thing.

    The Muslim radicals have said their attacks would stop if the US gets out of Muslim countries.

    Source(s): The Middle East is changing as we speak, with the people violently rejecting their corrupt, brutal leaders. Our wars in the region had nothing to do with this, it was the internet, and cellular technology that promoted the political changes in the Muslim countries.
