Al Qaeda could do this if US pulls out of Afghanistan: Gen. Keane


DAVID: HONG KONG PROTESTERS REFUSING TO BACK DOWN EVEN AS THE MAYOR OF HONG KONG CONCEDE ON ONE OF THEIR DEMAND. MASSIVE QUESTIONS REMAIN ON WHAT’S NEXT AFTER MONTHS OF UTTER CHAOS. JOINING ME, RETIRED FOUR STAR GENERAL JACK KEANE, GENERAL, MARKETS WERE UP TODAY ON THE HONG KONG NEWS. THEY THOUGHT IT WAS A MAJOR BREAK THROUGH?>>MOST OF DEFINITELY. THIS HAS BEEN THE PROTESTERS’ NUMBER ONE REQUEST. WHEN SHE WITHDREW THE BILL, SHE SET IT ASIDE. THEY WANTED IT TO BE OFFICIALLY WITHDRAWN FROM THE LEGISLATURE. THIS WAS A SINGULAR REQUEST AT THE TIME. AND THE CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY IN BEIJING REFUSED TO GIVE IN BECAUSE IN THEIR MINDS IT’S A SIGN OF WEAKNESS. HERE WE ARE THREE MONTHS LATER FINALLY GIVING THEM THAT CONCESSION. BUT BECAUSE THERE HAS BEEN SO MUCH POLICE BRUTALITY, THE PROTESTERS WANT THAT INVESTIGATED. THEY WANT THEIR FELLOW PEACEFUL PROTESTERS TO BE RELEASED. AND THEY WANT ALL HONG KONG OFFICIALS TO BE ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE. THE REQUESTS HAVE GONE UP IN FREQUENCY AND SIZE. DAVID: ALL THAT TIME WASTED. IF THEY HAD DONE THAT THREE MONTHS AGO. I WANT YOUR THOUGHTS ON A MARINE WHO STOPPED BY FOX BUSINESS EARLIER TODAY. A FELLOW GENERAL AND FORMER SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, JAMES MATTIS JOINED NEIL CAVUTO EARLIER. WATCH AND I WILL GET YOUR RESPONSE.>>YOU SAW WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMP PULLED THE TROOPS OUT OF IRAQ THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY WARNED US THEY WOULD COME BACK STRONGER THAN EVER AND THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED. DAVE WILL BE I THINK HE’S PRECISELY RIGHT. IS THERE A DANGER THE SAME THING COULD HAPPEN IF WE WITHDRAW OUR TROOPS FOR AFGHANISTAN?>>THE SIMILARITY IS QUITE STARK. THE SAME INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY THAT GENERAL MATTIS IS REFERENCING THERE WOULD SAY TO US TODAY IS THAT IF WE PULL ALL THE TROOPS OUT OF AFGHANISTAN, THE LIKELIHOOD OF THE AL QAEDA WHO IS JUST ACROSS THE BORDER IN PAKISTAN BEING ABLE TO SET UP A SAFE HAVEN BECAUSE THEY HAVE NEVER GIVEN UP ON THEIR ASPIRATIONAL GOALS TO REATTACK AMERICA AGAIN. LIKELY THEY WOULD REESTABLISH THAT SAFE HAVEN AND CONDUCT MISSIONS AGAINST AMERICA. FOR 18 YEARS WE HAVE PREVENTED THAT REATTACK FROM TAKING PLACE. LET’S NOT GIVE UP ON IT. OUR VIEWERS HAVE TO UNDERSTAND, THIS IS A GENERATIONAL WAR. THIS IS A POLITICAL IDEOLOGY WE ARE DEALING WITH AND IT TAKES TIME. DAVID: I HAVE TO ASK, THE FAMOUS PERIOD OF ABOUT A MONTH IN DECEMBER OF 2001 WHEN WE SENT THE SPECIAL FORCES GUYS IN, JUST A FEW DOZEN SPECIAL FORCES GUYS ON THE GROUND SPOTTING PLACES FOR THE PLANES OVERHEAD TO BOMB, THAT WAS ENOUGH TO DISLODGE THE TALIBAN BACK THEN. WOULD THAT BE ALL WE NEED AS A RESIDUAL FORCE?>>WE NEED MORE THAN THAT. WE HAD A NORTHERN ALLIANCE, GROUND FORCE AT THE TIME. THAT’S WHAT WE WERE PROVIDING ASSISTANCE TO. PRESIDENT TRUMP ASKED THE TALIBAN LEADERSHIP TO GIVE UP THE AL QAEDA AND WE’LL LEAVE YOU HAVE ALONE. THEY REJECTED THAT AND DECIDED TO PROTECT THE AL QAEDA. THEY LOST THEIR REGIME AND DOZENS OF FIGHTERS. NOW ACCORDING TO THIS POLICE DEAL, ALL TROOPS ARE GOING TO COME OUT AND WE’LL TRUST THE TALIBAN TO GO AFTER THE AL QAEDA. THAT MAKES NO SENSE TO ME NOR ANYONE ELSE WHO KNOWS THE SITUATION. DAVID: FRANCE AS A NEW IDEA IF THEY GIVE $15 BILLION TO IRAN, SOMETHING THEY CALL A CREDIT LINE, I CALL IT A BRIBE, THAT THAT WOULD BE ENOUGH FOR THEM TO GO BACK TO THE NUCLEAR DOLE AND GET THEM BACK AT THE BARGAINING TABLE. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS IDEA?>>IT’S ABSOLUTE ABSURDITY. THE IRANIANS VIOLATED THE TERMS OF THE NUCLEAR DEAL TO GET SOME MONEY. THE ADMINISTRATION SHOULD SAY NO TO THIS BECAUSE THAT FLIES IN THE FACE OF MAXIMUM PRESSURE. RIGHT NOW THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS THE IRANIANS ON THEIR HEELS. LET’S TYPE THEM THAT WAY. DAVID: IT’S PURE APPEASEMENT. YOU DON’T ARGUE WITH A LION WHEN HE HAS YOUR HEAD IN HIS MOUTH. THAT WAS GOOD ADVICE DEALING WITH HITLER AND GOOD ADVICE DEALING WITH THE IRANIANS.>>ABSOLUTELY. MACRON AND GERMANY BOTH IGNORE THE HARSH REALITY OF IRAN’S BEHAVIOR TO CONTROL THE MIDDLE EAST. THAT’S WHAT THEY ARE ALL ABOUT. THIS PRESIDENT WANTS THAT ON THE

  1. Democrats Homeland Policy Sucks and Republicans Foreign Policy Sucks. Thats why WE elected TRUMP. TO END THIS WAR NOW!!!!

  2. Let's bring our troops home and stop spending 4 billion a month on unnecessary war, with that money we could afford health care for all

  3. Statistically right now, the fastest growing jobs in the U.S. pay $24,000 per year. By the time you include taxation, bills, etc. that's simply not enough to live off of, even if you live in a cheap area. I keep hearing about how many jobs there are. How amazing the employment situation in the U.S. is. Are we living in the New World? A world in which you're employment but the wages aren't enough to live.

  4. Remember one thing Muslims want the world and their doing it one country at a time. There has to be a complete Wipeout of satanic Islam.

  5. Once again, American must waste it's citizens' money and lives on being the world's police….
    I say we just live in Afghanistan forever!

  6. So Mattis…Keane ..When does it End?.You the Nerve to call this a Generational War?..F..k You!.The only reason this nation is at threat from the Islamic Crazies is our Open Borders policies and we let ANYONE in our country and to become citizens…think Omar and her kind….Nothing General love more than Endless Warfare..They get play war like children from the safety of the Pentagon.

  7. This is why is country will come to end no money to fix our bad roads and bridges i don't understand why we can't afford new stuff but love to spend on wars

  8. TROOPS SHOULD HAVE BE BROUGHT BACK LONG TIME AGO. THAT IS A FACT..but BECAUSE OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS THEY STILL DYING THERE FOR NO REASON. THINK OF IT.
    A TOTAL GLOBALIST WRONG THINKING..I'M JUST SAYING!

  9. You can't beat a people who are willing to die for their ideas…only genocide will beat them, but
    the world will judge you harshly if you do that.

  10. When did Pakistan attack us? Last time I checked, the Saudi's flew the planes on 9/11 and Trump just sold them $400 billion in weapons.

  11. China is a bigger threat than Afghanistan, Afghans just want to be left alone. China has been aggressive towards other countries for decades

  12. The US is in Afghanistan to protect the CIA's Opium Monopoly… These military mouthpieces will say anything to keep the smack flowing… 😔

  13. Since we have 23,468 American soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines in South Korea that have been there since 1953. I don't think it is totally out of the question to have a substantial number of our military continue to be in Afghanistan. Having spent 20+ years in the Army and now retired I spent a year in Korea well within missile and artillery range of the DMZ. I also spent two years stationed in Germany back in the early '80s before the fall of the WARSAW Pack. We still have military in Europe that have been there since 1945. So I don't think it would be a safe thing for us to cut and run totally. Obama tried that in Iraq and I think we saw how that turned out.

  14. What kind of military strategy is that, men who fight together as brothers in arms for almost 3 decades to go after each other, what kind of brainless bafoons coming up with these strategies? They should be shot.

  15. China is naive. You give them 1 they will ask 2. China should either pay the price of unity or pay the price of secession later.

  16. France want to give 15 billion dollars to Iran? I am Dutch, so I am a “lucky” citizen of the f……. money wasting machine, that is called EU.
    The southern and easter countries in the EU, especially France, is financially dependant and thriving on the expence of the north/west richer countries of the EU. France and Germany are calling the shots for the rest of the EU. England (besides the english lefties and elite politicians ofcourse) was fat up of that situation and rightly want to step out.
    Anyway, France wants to give 15 billions of dollars to Iran. I can guarentee you, that this is not their own money. Those money sucking French (supported by their little buddy, shaky Angela Merkel) will grab this money out of the pockets from the richer north/western EU countries, like The Netherlands. So in other words, me!!!! Besides that, France is crossing right through the boycot from the USA! Why? Because France still thinks their “Napoleon” days aren’t over and tries to be the “trendsetter” of the western world, by derailing the USA. The French suckers keep forgetting all the time they lost all the great wars, against England, Germany, Russia in the past😂

  17. We don't need to be in the Middle East. The US is now energy independent. Let the Muslims go back to killing each other like they have for 700yrs straight. Let Israel fight it's own battles. We wasted $7 trillion over there with ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to show for it except more National Debt.

  18. If you desire war on American soil, sure, "bring all the troops home" and "close all the bases around the world." Maybe we can give Putin a green light to rebuild the missile bases in Cuba, too.

    Ask the Europeans– and Russians for that matter– how joyous it is to have war on your own soil. You think we'll lose fewer soldiers that way? Imbeciles.

  19. As a combat Marine veteran it is past due for our forces to withdraw from these countries being the police force for these countries does nothing wasteful spending

  20. It will get that way here soon. Fast and good as Trump is….not enough. People will not wait years for factories to build….etc. tick tock
    I want my money back.

  21. What happened to the dictum 'the US doesn't negotiate with terrorist?'
    Apparently, no longer exists (with Trump anyway).
    As the Taliban keeps blowing Afghanistan up, Trump keeps saying how happy he is with the deal he is making with them.
    Innocent people dying, NATO Troops slaughtered, and he's happy.
    I guess there's something bad wrong with America because it's getting to the point where we don't know what we stand for anymore!
    And Gen.Mattis is right:
    We leave now, the Taliban will defeat the Government, the Country will be thrown into chaos.
    So the last 20 years will basically be for nothing!

  22. We have made deals with the Taliban. It’s all better for our future when the Yankees go back home. So get out so our government can work to our future and put this game behind us. Thanks

  23. So the only place al Queda can plan to attack America is Afghanistan? Can't one of these reporters ever ask a sensible question?

  24. So, how many years do we need to stay Keane…25….30? 19 years is quite long enough. That is enough of the blood of our young men and women and way beyond enough money for these 9th century throwbacks.

  25. We can't stay there forever.Its been over 15 years . Time to leave and use smart bombs and spys on the ground. Lets go now. Mattis is a great guy but this can be managed from the air with the drone technology we have now. There has to be an end game.

  26. The US FORCES need to leave Afghanistan. It's all about my tax paying dollars funding another Cold War. This time there are no documented casualties. Just Govt propaganda.
