He plans to send an additional 30,000 troops. In July 2011, it is expected the troops will begin to pull out of Afghanistan. Even though we have a date to start withdrawal, Obama has made it known that this date is only conditional, depending on the how things look on the ground.

They don’t have very good living conditions, and don’t have the best food, but they continuously fight the battle for us. They are the US soldiers. This unfortunate situation of terrorism started in March of 2003. Moments after the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11th the Bush administration was declaring a war on terrorism. It was not till September 2002 that people were starting to blame Iraq for the attacks on the trade center.

On September 11, 2001, The United States of America and the whole world witnessed the most extreme terrorist incident ever committed on U.S. soil. It was perpetrated by Muslim extremists using commercial airliners as projectiles of destruction. The attacks on September 11, 2001 left nearly three thousand people dead. Following the attacks there was much speculation as to why these attacks were not prevented from happening. In the months following the attacks, President Bush assigned Attorney General Ashcroft the task of producing legislation to assist the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement community to prevent such of an atrocity from occurring again.
Darwin Mushrush Am. st. 100 Prof. Smythe December 15th, 2011 The War in Iraq: What Did It Really Cost? The war on terror in Iraq was one of the most controversial periods of conflict in U.S. History, overshadowed only by Vietnam. The United States got involved in Iraq in March of 2003 because President Bush and Prime Minister Blair claimed that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and also had relations with Al- Queda, the terrorist group responsible for the September 11th attacks. The U.N. sent personel into Iraq to investigate for weapons, but came up empty.
In order to determine whether the Obama Administration's handling of the Benghazi situation was incompetent or immoral, we must first examine the situation and the Obama Administration's handling of that situation. On the eleventh anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, a mob of angry protestors had gathered outside the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya. The cause of the protest was a cheaply made YouTube video entitled "Innocence of Muslims," an anti-muslim movie trailer. Angry protestors eventually began an assault on the building, where the American Ambassador to Libya and several others were killed. Less than seventeen minutes after the attacks began, surveillance drones were directed to the area.
The first Afghanistan War — the "good" one, 2001-02 — routed Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda and their Taliban hosts. The second, which intensified around 2006 after the Taliban regrouped, has become the long war. It's a story of shifting goals, unreliable allies, elusive enemies, lost lives, depleted funds. Through it all, the annual 9/11 remembrances have reminded Americans of why — for better or worse — we
The ten year anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy is nearly upon us, a day that is seared into the memories of everyone who was there or watched it happen on television. The death and destruction on that September morning was unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my life. My immediate reaction to watching this horror unfold was and still is, “let’s find the bastards that did this and torture them in public for the world to see”. After the planes hit, hundreds of people jumped to their deaths, their only other option was to burn alive, some holding hands as they threw themselves to the mercy of their God. Thousands of people died that day and the volunteers who searched through the rubble to find survivors are continuing
Now I could sit here and ramble on and on since the beginning of time about religion and the wars and hate caused by it. But I’ll just focus on one case. Being a Muslim in America, it was a little tough at first I have to admit. Actually, very tough. I was in 1st grade when the news hit that New York was attacked.
