    AS an anti-war citizen I don't want immediate pull out of troops from Iraq or Afghanistan, but I strongly oppose the Permanent presence in these nations or anywhere we are not wanted or we are present for an ulterior motive. This article is disturbing to people like me... Via AP:

    The United States is spending $83 million to upgrade its two main air bases in Afghanistan, an Air Force general said Monday, the latest indication that American forces will remain in the country for years.

    Brig. Gen. Jim Hunt said the money was being spent on construction projects already underway at Bagram Air Base, north of Kabul, and Kandahar Air Field in the south. A new runway is being built at Bagram, the biggest Afghan airfield used by the U.S. military.

    "We are continuously improving runways, taxiways, navigation aids, airfield lighting, billeting and other facilities to support our demanding mission," Hunt said at a news conference in the capital.
