We could be out by the end of March if we wanted.
We could stay for another 18 months or another 18 years and it will not change the place.
Islam is the problem.
Ashraf Ghani is Pashtun. The irony here is that if he killed off the Pashtun population or drove it into Pakistan, the Taliban would become extinct in Afghanistan.
Once again, the longest war in American history is NOT Afghanistan. It is the Korean War. We have not ended the Korean War, we are merely at a Cease Fire agreement with NoKo. People tend to overlook this because there has been no military action for decades.
5 seconds after the taliban break the agreement we should be carpet bombing every place they live.
The mind boggles.
Just get out of there already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Surfing the other day I happened upon an interview with the Afghanistan President and a BBC reporter. He speaks English well and explained his position well. His point is correct and I agreed with him. I am surprised the peace process did not include the President of Afghanistan. All of the current Afghanistan leaders, and people, seem to for the peace deal and want it to succeed.
Just bring all Americans home... Let the Taliban have Afghanistan... If the opium traffic to the U.S. gets worse, just nuke the poppy fields... A few inches of glass will bankrupt a lot of the dealers...
