The only way to do that is to use to nukes on civilians. The end result will be to be put Bagman Karzai in the permanent saddle. If that is the option, I say leave now. Afghanistan is riddled with the bones of failed conquerers.

In its long history, Afghanistan has never been conquered. Even the Russians with their impressive military learned that the hard way. Boots on the ground will never win in that country and you can’t nuke them back to the stone age because they still live in the stone age. Send a few well placed tactical nukes as a gift and then get the hell out....red

“Afghanistan is riddled with the bones of failed conquerors.”

The Mongols had the best results (and policy), but in the end they were infected with Islam from that contact. So, yeah.

Afghanistan is were foreign power goes to die. No wonder BO zeroed in on the place.

Actually, Afghanistan was the only uber fanatic Islamist nation because of the Taliban. We bomb them, and got the Taliban out. Now we are allowing the Taliban back after ten years and billions of tax payers dollars.

The proper thing for the US to do is to leave. Just as simple as that; pack, and leave! No victory laps or nothing. Just say the Afghani people are not ready to join the seventeen century yet.
