The Obama administration has been skeptical of the value of a long-term troop presence. The new military plan would draw down that 10,000-member force in two years, with the intent of being able to remove all American troops by the end of the Obama administration except for military personnel who would work in a defense office at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.
Fine with me. If you aren’t going to use our military to seek victory over those who threaten us, get them the hell out of there. As far as I’m concerned, all of the barbaric shithole of Islamic Afghanistan isn’t worth one American life.
My solution to the problem of the “undefeated Afghans?” The next time we are attacked from that dungheap, turn the whole joint into barren, glassy hills.
