After 13 Years Of War In Afghanistan: Obama Ends The Longest War In American History

Standard

Honolulu (AP) — President Barack Obama says the longest war in American history is coming to a responsible conclusion. Obama is welcoming the end of U.S. combat operations in Afghanistan. The war came to a formal end Sunday with a ceremony in Kabul. Obama says in a statement that the effort has devastated al-Qaida’s core leadership, brought justice to Osama bin Laden and disrupted terrorist plots. He says U.S. troops and diplomats have helped Afghans reclaim their communities and move toward democracy.

Obama is also honouring the more than 2,200 Americans who have died in Afghanistan since the war started 13 years ago. Obama says those years have tested the U.S. and its military. From a peak 140,000 troops in 2010, the U.S. and NATO plan to leave just 13,500 behind.

Read Obama’s full statement below:

Today’s ceremony in Kabul marks a milestone for our country. For more than 13 years, ever since nearly 3,000 innocent lives were taken from us on 9/11, our nation has been at war in Afghanistan. Now, thanks to the extraordinary sacrifices of our men and women in uniform, our combat mission in Afghanistan is ending, and the longest war in American history is coming to a responsible conclusion.

On this day we give thanks to our troops and intelligence personnel who have been relentless against the terrorists responsible for 9/11–devastating the core al Qaeda leadership, delivering justice to Osama bin Laden, disrupting terrorist plots and saving countless American lives. We are safer, and our nation is more secure, because of their service. At the same time, our courageous military and diplomatic personnel in Afghanistan–along with our NATO allies and coalition partners–have helped the Afghan people reclaim their communities, take the lead for their own security, hold historic elections and complete the first democratic transfer of power in their country’s history.

We honour the profound sacrifices that have made this progress possible. We salute every American–military and civilian, including our dedicated diplomats and development workers–who have served in Afghanistan, many on multiple tours, just as their families have sacrificed at home. We pledge to give our many wounded warriors, with wounds seen and unseen, the world-class care and treatment they have earned. Most of all, we remember the more than 2,200 American patriots who made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan, and we pledge to stand with their Gold Star families who need the everlasting love and support of a grateful nation.

Afghanistan remains a dangerous place, and the Afghan people and their security forces continue to make tremendous sacrifices in defense of their country. At the invitation of the Afghan government, and to preserve the gains we have made together, the United States–along with our allies and partners–will maintain a limited military presence in Afghanistan to train, advise and assist Afghan forces and to conduct counterterrorism operations against the remnants of al Qaeda. Our personnel will continue to face risks, but this reflects the enduring commitment of the United States to the Afghan people and to a united, secure and sovereign Afghanistan that is never again used as a source of attacks against our nation.

These past 13 years have tested our nation and our military. But compared to the nearly 180,000 American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan when I took office, we now have fewer than 15,000 in those countries. Some 90 percent of our troops are home. Our military remains the finest in the world, and we will remain vigilant against terrorist attacks and in defense of the freedoms and values we hold dear. And with growing prosperity here at home, we enter a new year with new confidence, indebted to our fellow Americans in uniform who keep us safe and free.

Buhari Is A ‘Semi-Illiterate Jakput’ – PDP

Standard

The Peoples Democratic Party has advised Nigerians not to vote for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, because he is “semi-illiterate.”

APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari

Sahara Reporters made it known that the statement was made by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Prof. Wale Oladipo during a meeting of the party in the diaspora at the party’s headquarters in Abuja on Monday.

Oladipo was quoted saying:

“But I know that God loves this country so much. “God has decided that this country will remain indivisible and has decided that this country will continue to wax stronger.”God has decreed it that we continue to pilot the affairs of this country and continue to implement the transformation agenda. “They have passed through a motion and endorsed their perennial candidate. We have beaten him three times, we are going to beat him once again.

“The next election is going to be between darkness and light, it is going to be between a cross cosmopolitan highly-focused Ph.D holder and a semi-literate jakput. “Nigeria cannot afford to go back, we will continue to move forward.”

Urging the representatives of various chapters to understand that they will be called upon to enlighten Nigerians on the programmes of the PDP wherever they reside in the world, Oladipo said:

“You will also be called upon to counter negative propaganda that the APC is making against our party and our country in different countries of this world.

“Of course, we are not perfect but our mission is perfect. We mean well for this country and we believe the country should continue to be one and that we should be a market-driven economy while at the same time, providing succor for the weak. “

Who’s Going to Make The Change in our Country, Nigeria? by Momoh Ami

Standard

*Is it the Politicians who only care about their selfish interests?

*Is it the Legislator that only make laws that favour them?

*Is it the government that is no longer for the people?

*Is it the Police that is out there to take bribe and oppress the poor?

*Is it the army that at any small opportunity they get, they don’t fail to oppress and intimidate the citizens they are meant to protect?

*Is it the fathers that their Salaries are hardly paid on time? Or the Pensioners that hardly receive their pay?

*Is it the Civil servants who some are real servants in their services?

*Is it the youths who still chants praises and cheers to the same politicians who haven’t contributed positively to their lives?

****Who is really going to change our dear Country Nigeria? Who?

You are suppose to be the change you seek..
Change Yourself first in your own little ways, then you will start seeing changes..

Let all Nigerians stand up and fight for their right in the right way… Its our country and it doesn’t belong to some group of people or one person…

84-Year-Old’s Date With Teen Twins Turns Into Nightmare: Cops

Standard

An 84-year-old New Yorker’s date with two 17-year-old twin sisters ended with the senior citizen tied up and robbed, according to police.

The New York Times reports that Paul Aronson met up with 17-year-old Shaina Foster last month through SeekingArrangement.com, a sugar daddy site that bills itself as a place “where beautiful, successful people fuel mutually beneficial relationships,” according to the Times.

After a first date, Shaina brought her twin sister Shalaine along to the second. The trio dined at an “expensive restaurant” and then Aronson invited them back to his apartment for a drink, court documents said.

That’s when Shaina told authorities things got out of hand.

“He asked to do things I wasn’t going to do,” she told Detective Darryl Ng. “He is ugly, old and disgusting. I tied him up. I took his money and left. He was starting to creep me out.”

The New York Daily News reports that the sisters allegedly tied Aronson up with zip ties, stole $420 worth of cash from his wallet and took his credit card. They then went on a shopping spree and bought makeup, police said.

Shaina Foster told authorities she was surprised Aronson called police.

“The old man reported me? I don’t understand why he reported me,” she said, according to court documents.

The New York Post reports that on Wednesday, Shalaine Foster’s lawyer said his client was brought along by her sister and didn’t take part in any of the crimes her sister allegedly committed.

“There’s always that story of the good twin and the bad twin, who goes right and who goes wrong,” Brian Kennedy said. ”​My client Sh​alaine was always going right but it seems she got caught up in something that was not of her making.”

The pair are charged with kidnapping, burglary, robbery, assault and grand larceny. They are being held without bail.

The age of consent in New York is 17, which may at least partially explain why Aronson isn’t facing any charges.
