Statements about Afghanistan

"More than 40,000 troops are still stationed in Afghanistan with no clear objective. Even in the best case, by the end of the year at least 10,000 American soldiers will still be on the ground."

Says only about 250 Texans have been killed in action since 9/11.

"More lives have been lost because of the war with the drug cartels in Juarez alone, just a few blocks from the United States of America, than have been lost in the war in Afghanistan."

"More people were killed in the United States last year by tainted food than U.S. troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since the wars began."

"Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working."
