Can we leave now?

December 2, 2010

I think that we should just write off Afghanistan.

 

We tried.  We have tried to eliminate the Taliban and to improve the lives of Afghanis but it seems as if we are just treading water.  Or actually going backwards.

 

The US captures terrorists and the Afghans release them.

The US and other allies build infrastructure which is destroyed.

Girls go to schools and are assaulted.

 

I really think that we have reached the cut our losses stage.

 

We need to bring all of our troops home and then lock down the borders.  No one from Afghanistan is allowed to enter the US.  No one.  Afghanis need to fight off the Taliban.  If they won’t, we can’t continue to pour money into the country.

 

I heard this week about Afghanistan police killing US soldiers.  Are we training people who will ultimately fight against us?
