    ...Not bloody likely.

    Yesterday, Medecines Sans Frontieres announced that it was shuting down operations in Afghanistan...this after 24 years in country during the abortive Russian war and the worst excesses of the Taliban. They can no longer suffer the casualties they have been sustaining recently.

    Dubbyuh loves to make much of the success of Afghanistan and its President, Hamid Kharzhai. In reality though, Mr. Kharzhai is nothing more than the Mayor of Kabul...Despotic warlords control the countryside..The Taliban and Al Qaeda are re-establishing their foot hold in southern Afghanistan...Men and women with voter registration cards are murdered by the Taliban and their sympathizers. Yeah...Afghanistan is a success alright...A success at showing what a failure Dubbyuh's policy is.

    Why are you so anti-freedom.

    The Taliban are widely dispersed in Afghanistan and the Afghan National Army is doing a superb job.

    You remind me of the post-war Germans. They longed for the days of Hitler because he made the trains run on time. We ousted the Taliban and we are now attempting to provide the Afghani government sufficient time to organize, train and arm a police force and a military. It should be no surprise that some back-sliding occurs during this transition.

    Actually, don't know why I bother answering your post. You care little for the facts, you're simply looking for another rock to throw.

    Once more, y'all miss the point. Had Dubbyuh not engaged in an un-necessary, illegal, ill-concieved, unfounded war in Iraq, Afghanistan would be secure now...The Taliban would be exterminated...Osama would be dead or captured...Al Qaeda would be effectively neutralized as a threat to anyone.

    Instead the resources to do this were siphoned off to an illegal and un-founded war in Iraq, leaving 15,000 troops in Afghanistan. Jesus...what a creepshow.
