Fool’s Errand – 17 Years In Afghanistan

The longest war in US history keeps going on and on. No end in sight. Not even an end-goal in sight. How did we get to this point? Scott Horton, author of Fool’s Errand – Time to End the War in Afghanistan, joins today’s Liberty Report in-studio to discuss this and the many other wars of the US empire.

Without the FED the deep state couldn't afford all these wars.  Every time I buy something that has had a recent increase in price I always mention it to the clerk.  I then explain that it isn't really the stores fault because only the FED can debase the value of our currency.  If they seem like they might listen I explain that what you could purchase in 1875 and 1920 with a silver dime now costs more than three dollars.  I tell them that when I started driving in 1966 I paid $.20 (two silver dimes) for a gallon of gas, now it costs more… Read more »

'Careful now Scott… "Iran has never done anything to us." Iran DID take our embassy folks hostage on TV and the movies.
Saying that will negate most's acceptance of a much more important and true idea. Its ALL about Israel and the M.I.C.! ("Skate tough or go home"…bro.)(Love you man!)

Right on Scott! Trump could pull out of anywhere and blame it on the folks he eluded to, "behind me", as being so different from, during his inaugural speech, just as easily as he "could stand in the middle of 5th ave and shoot someone and not loose any voters". The Scott Horton rule still prevails though. 🙁

That information from Robert Fisk doesn't surprise me at all , But when are the citizens of this country going to react ; Something as simple as a complete one day shutdown ; No work , school , buying or selling for one day with the slogan , NO MORE LIES NO MORE WARS ! ; No one has to travel to go to a demonstration , just do nothing , go outside your resident for one hour 2 pm eastern time with a sign with the slogan . I'll guarantee you will get there attention .

Ron Paul 2012 – your my president of choice. It would be great to see you use stronger language and possibly profanity in a shorter video clip to get the message across. These war mongers need to go & the never ending wars need to stop.

Aside from the CIA/Mossad lucrative heroin profits, Afghanistan is the back door into Iran to ultimately achieve the Rothschild sponsored Greater Israel Project.

I am an Afghan who has been suffering from western imposed wars for 40 years. Thank you Mr Paul and Mr McAdams for taking on this subject which is deliberately swiped under the carpet by all politicians and media. This is genocide and crimes against humanity in Afghanistan. Everyday around 100’ of Afghans are either killed or severely injured, emigrate or pushed to drug addiction which 10% Afghans are addicted since false flag 9/11 invasions and 40% Afghans are direct effected by drug related direct wars in Helmand and other place where drug is. All decent patriotic and intelligent Afghan… Read more »

Bin Laden was found in Pakistan and all false flag 9/11 terrorists were Saudi nationals. Why Afghanistan is invaded and Afghans are being systematically genocide???? The drug solution in Afghanistan is this I wrote to the highly corrupted Afghan government that you need 500 soldiers, two helicopters, a tanker of petrol and every six months go to the areas where drugs are farmed: the 500 soldiers and helicopters should be used to arrests and jail all drug farmers and land owners and drug mafias and traffickers then beat them up and fine them heavily and put them in prison for… Read more »

keep in mind the result of a "great" military expedition of the "Great" british empire in the 19th century: ONE man came back alive.Situation for NATO troops in Afghanistan is hopeless. It is a gigantic siege, like a huge Stalingrad.Military supplies may reach Afghanistan via Russia, Iran or Pakistan. The Russians are fed up by US regime changes in Ukraina and Syria and in 2015 closed the transportation route for NATO military equipment through Russia to reach Afghanistan. Iran is anti US because US and UK have destroyed democracy in Iran with a CIA/MI6 coup in 1953. There is also… Read more »

Campaigning to get out of Afghanistan will probably be what gets Trump re elected .
Or being in war, Americans never vote a president out during times of war.

FOOLS? WE THE PEOPLE … we are the fools, and the suckers. We need to STOP blaming our problems on other people and put the blame squarely on those responsible. WE THE PEOPLE are responsible for all war crimes committed in our names and WE THE PEOPLE should be bullwhipped for allowing our nation to reach the condition we currently exist within.

WE THE PEOPLE deserve only pain, and the ultra wealthy know this.

Dr.Paul i can see Zionist blood in this guy's veins, he fails to mention Zionist domination over the american government, in order for the Zionist to take over the world and succeed on power transfer from USA to Israel first america has to be neutralised military and economically by pushing it to wars wars wars wars with countries that are anti Zionist and neighbours of israel and ultimately against Russian and China only to destroy each other and Israel become the next supper power of the world by default since they will be hiding in under ground bankers during the… Read more »

The American people and the polls do not matter anymore. The whole congress is bought and paid for. The American people lost any semblance of control when big money was allowed into politics. Congress' approval ratings are in the tank, but the same people keep getting elected. You say vote them out, but the electoral system and vote rigging precludes that from happening. The whole system is rigged. The 2 party system should be done away with. The majority of Americans do not identify with either party. Well at least the 40+ percent of us that identify as Independent.

I don’t agree with Scott. I do believe that the liberty movement has suffered at least since ‘08. The reason is because none of us expected the left to get so stupidly powerful so quickly. They didn’t just take over the government bureaucracies, they also now control the internal politics of large corporations. So now even good libertarian anarchists are asking who or what can protect us, the tiny political minority, from this very dangerous cultural majority. I don’t know the answer but it sure seems that if the state has any proper role it is to check the anti-liberty… Read more »

This country not only switched sides in Afghanistan, we switched sides on the whole world !!!!!! Since the 9/11 LIE we have been fighting for the " GREATER ISRAEL PROJECT" !!!!!!!!!!!!! When are we going to wake up ???? I guess as long as the MSM tows the Government line we will continue to keep on fighting their so called WAR ON TERROR …… And when you really think about them words there is no end in sight !!!!!!

Why do I get the feeling that the main players are just playing theatricals just to keep the money coming in ?! The latest missile strikes hit empty buildings , and rumours say that Syria & Russia were warned to evacuate.

Another great interview Dr. Paul. I will have to find and subscribe to Scott Horton's channel and website. Yes I share and encourage others to help grow the subs of the liberty report and the John Birch Society channels. Let's truly make America great again.

So Republicans need to turn up the Mojo and announce that they own the US. And plan to keep DJT promise of making America Great again. ANd your saying that Republicans need to back DJT and his Ideas to improve it.

I love Scott Horton and especially Dr. Paul. But am disappointed that so many people in the libertarian community are still making the mistakes of taking president Trump literally and taking issue with what he says instead of focusing on what he does. A simple reading of The Art of the Deal reveals that Trump uses hyperbole and starts negotiations with big, unrealistic first offers. When his statements about killing the families of terrorists are understood in their proper context of negotiation, they aren't nearly as outrageous as they sound.

True Americans are those who have no dual citizenship! The sad part in all this mess from Washington is that these true Americans have stopped getting involved in politics, in the media and in the Church of Christ. We now have dual citizenship guys running politics, media and the Church. Most of these psychopaths are israeli citizens who pretend to be Americans. They are in Washington to advance Israeli agenda of the GREATER ISRAEL PROJECT. This is what is killing America!

At 7:00 "The Libertarian party is done" Well I get why people are saying that. First off I voted for a guy that I think is an asshole but has a lot more better ideas then the runner ups. It was a negative vote, A vote for who will do the least damage to my Freedom, Individuality,, Right to protect myself. and keep more of my Money. Gary Johnson? are you shitten me? Hillary 2.0.

Just got Scott's book, and it is very thorough. As is often the case – once in for good reasons or not, Sam never leaves (Korea, Japan, Germany, UK, Afghanistan). He's been on the folly of this – America's longest war now – and Iraq II and other mini-wars (Libya, Syria, etc.) the past 15 years, and yet they keep coming abetted by an MSM and mighty Congressional, military-industrial, think-tank complex.

I am not American, I am actually German and generally centre left and I don't agree with a lot of libertatian ideas. But I strongly agree on some, and especially on foreign policy. As a woman I have to say that the libertarianism might benefit from including more social issues, like the right to choose, education and family planning. In its heyday in Germany, the libertarian movement had a lot of strong and smart women at its forefront who vocally advocated for women's rights and brought social issues to the table. It might benefit the movement to detach itself from… Read more »

Scott Horton and or Dr. Paul should go on Joe Rogan's podcast and spread the message of liberty and non-interventionism there. Not frickin Gary Johnson.
