Let's all look back at a little history. What happened to Russia after they spent 10 years fighting in Afghanistan? Their country collapsed if my memory serves me correctly. To just pull out and throw our hands in the air, would just embolden the camel jockeys. The crazy thing is that we helped the afghans fight russia, and now they are attacking us. Not just the afghans, the entire ME. If we are going to leave, we need to make sure we make a very definitive statement to them that we are not playing with them. We need to really thump them real hard before we leave. The other thing that we need to do is quit playing by the rules of the Geneva Convention. Just kick their tails by whatever means necessary.
