>Take it from us, who were at war with IRA terrorists for decades in an Ireland, right next to us.
Yes you can. Plenty of ideological movements have been stopped. Just because the British made mistakes and failed doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have even tried. It certainly doesn’t mean the British should never have done anything and just sat there and let it happen.
It just means the British were incapable of defeating them. Or maybe they went too far and became vilified in the Irish public.
>You can’t kill an ideology.
Yes you can. There’s plenty of examples in history.
>And even to this day, the Taliban and Al Qaeda are still in Afghanistan.
No they are incredibly weak now and there’s very few Taliban now. AQ are not even in the region actively anymore.
What are you fucking talking about?
>Did the US really think that they could go there and eradicate the Taliban with bombs and bullets
Yes they can.
>453 brave men and women. Dead. For what?
To kill the terrorists and their bases from which they launch attacks. Which they accomplished victoriously.
>The eradication of the Taliban / Al Qaeda?
Yes they are basically destroyed and no longer in control of Afghanistan. Did you not notice Afghanistan is not under their control anymore?
AQ is much weaker than it ever was. ISIS for example is a lot stronger, even though it’s a newer group that found its beginnings in Syria. The only thing they did is become more decentralized. But many of their worst attacks have been stopped. Their leader is dead. Many of their high ranks are dead. Their organization cannot find the funding and dedicated soldiers anymore.
By every measure you can judge this as a success. But you refuse to, because you don’t want to solve the problems. You’ve been brainwashed into thinking an ideology cannot be killed and this is false. Plenty of ideologies were killed and it simply requires a lot of effort, time, and money.
Even the RIRA and CIRA are nothing compared to their predecessors. The RIRA is only 250-300 people left. You find them and the ideology is dead. The trouble is finding them that’s it.
Just read about how many of them were captured and arrested by MI5. Fighting them, is clearly working. Doing nothing, clearly doesn’t help.
