But we can gain money from them.
The idea is that we weren't supposed to be invading them for resources, we're "invading" to stabilize the region and kick the Taliban out for the purpose of making the lives of the people who happen to live there better.
Well that's a crap idea
I’ll forgive the yanks because they don’t have experience in these sort of matters, and they're a bit slow, lets not beat about the bush about that.
We invade, we install democracy, we keep them safe from outsiders, we look after them, we make them happy and safe, and we skim a bit of the top of the taxes as well as taking the odd resource.
WTF do they have in Afghanistan anyway? Sand and snow I think, it’s not exactly something you want.
