Time to bring our warriors and all equipment home!

The article talks about a signed "security" agreement being the basis of the US staying in Afghan. It sounds like at least part of it is the same sticking point that got us out of Iraq...a status of forces agreement. The real bottom line on that is that the US refuses to give up control of our own troops for any reason. We control them and we try them for any legal proceeding. No way I'd subject any American -- even a criminal -- to Islamic so-called justice.

If this is an excuse to get us out of Afghan I'm all for it. It is immoral/unethical/illegal to spend our troops' lives on a war that we are not even trying to win.
