I vote we loot everything we can in Afghanistan and then leave. Perhaps leave a nuclear bomb buried very deep in some key locations. Next time they act up .... BAM! Heck, even bring back some of their prettier women and leave the ones *you want” wearing burqas. LEave them the sheep and the ugly women.
In fact, this should be our new military Doctrine. Loot’n leave, or perhaps Smash’n grab.
Pull all our forces from around the world. Then the terrorists can get 6 or 8 Yachts or subs, and detonate nucs, 3 on the west coast (San Fran, LA, Seattle) 400 feet deep, with wind out of the west to make most of the West coast radioactive. Simultaneous to that get NY, Boston, DC, and the Carolinas when Sandy comes back.
So we can use our troops to keep the US citizens under control.
Yeah, that will do it/s
