Our "friends" our shooting us in the back and as we sleep. WTF should we tolerate that? The military wants no part of Afghanistan. Obama's plan is use drones, SO and a few bases to take out Al-Qaeda cells when they spring up and over the border in Pakistan. We can't fix Afghanistan.
So what happens if we keep bases and the country falls apart?
Realize I'm agreeing with you that it is time to come home. I'm trying to figure out at what level we should back up the government.
