We just can't "win" there. And why do we care to "win" there? We should be focused on Al-Quaeda, thats our enemy. They are in a lot more places than Afghanistan. Putting American lives on the line to nation build in Afghanistan won't stop Al-Quaeda or even impedede its progress in ratio to what it will cost us monetarily and more importantly in brave men and women dying.
