I am against the US troops in Afghanistan. First of all, it made many American soldiers and families feeling of agony. For example, after more than 10 years of war in Afghanistan, the U.S. reached a milestone on Wednesday when the 2,000th American died in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, CNN reports. Marine Cpl. Taylor J. Baune of Andover, was killed in Helmand province, Afghanistan, according to The Star-Tribune. Baune had married his wife just three months prior to his deployment. So, there is emty feeling of death to American soldiers, families. Secondly, I am against the fragmented nature of Afghan society, which is made up of many different ethnic groups, has lead to its multiple internal struggles which have gained support from the different external powers. It has happened there. To be specificon Insightonconflict.org the website reports that: “By 1992 the Communist government had collapsed and the Peshawar Accord declared Afghanistan to be the Islamic State of Afghanistan. However, many groups refused to acknowledge the new government throughout the early 1990s. In Kandahar, a militia group called the Taliban, began to emerge as a political and religious force.” Consequently, there was a negative result growing Afghanistan. Finally, I am with international public opinion which is largely opposed to the war in Afghanistan. For instance, from CBS News poll was conducted September 28 to October 2, 2011, there were 57 percent who thought the US military should not be there, and 62 percent wanted the number of troops to be decreased immediately. So, there was opposition from the international public. All in all, the US troops in Afghanistan have gotten opposition from the world collectively.
