Faster than 12+ years? Zero option? Ha! It must be true because it was in the paper, huh? LOL.

I will be blunt; the USA should have never been involved in this "war".... and should have learned from the Russians and other nations who have tried for generations to control this country. It has never happened and will never happen. But it happened; and the day we should have walked away was the day after Bin Laden was killed in Pakistan. I find it ironic, that the people that got us involved in Iraq and Afghanistan, and advocate for us to take a more active role in Egypt and Syria, were alive when Vietnam happened, and should have learned from that. They cannot even claim "ignorance."

Removing our troops from that hellhole couldn't happen fast enough. Let the Chinese defend Karzai. After all, they're the ones benefiting from the natural resources located there.

Get out as fast as we can. Karzai is playing both sides and isn't any more reliable than the Taliban. No more American or NATO soldiers need to die for Karzai. Training police officers is nothing more than a facade for the Taliban to retake Afghanistan. Pakistan harbored Bin Laden and the Taliban. They are also unreliable.
