    Francois Hollande, French President-Elect, Confirms Afghanistan Exit In 2012

    After his election to the French presidency on Sunday, Francois Hollande wasted no time in following through on one of his highest-profile campaign pledges.

    Hollande's communications director, Manuel Valls, confirmed to the Telegraph on Monday that France will "announce the withdrawal of its forces from Afghanistan between now and the end of the year." The announcement will take place at the NATO summit being held in Chicago on May 20 and 21.

    Members of the International Security Assistance Force, the NATO-led coalition in Afghanistan, agreed in 2010 to end their combat role at the end of 2014 while slowly transferring control of sections of the country to Afghan security forces. Hollande, however, pledged a much more rapid withdrawal than envisioned by NATO during his run against outgoing President Nicolas Sarkozy.

    Jean-Yves Le Drian, a foreign policy advisor to Hollande and potential defense minister, told Reuters last month that "French combat troops had no business in Afghanistan now and a pullout should be executed within eight months."

    It's about time that intelligence and humanity takes over.

    I agree with the OP.

    But I disagree with NG's take on King Tut's face. I'm tired of people of history being painted with such rose colored glasses. Did they have Noxema and Skin Toners and shit back then? lol.

    Well - off of common-sense alone I'd say that king tut should have pubescent acne, a less even skin-tone flurried with blemishes and probably some pretty disgusting teeth and body odor. Covered in Gold.

    That may not be far from the truth brother .. however, that wasn't the NG task.

    Lots an lots of young people today who do not use Noxema or any skin toner, yet have beautiful skin.

    Yea, I know. I was just being self indulgent and digging for intrigue, tbh. Frivolous "how's the weather" dialogue disgusts me sometimes.

    I agree, but I don't blame Capitalism alone.

    I blame human beings - I blame our inability to deter from our Natural instinct (fight or flight, lust for power, seek to devour) and lean more towards our sentience; however, a catastrophic event would first be necessary or else it will not likely happen in our lifetimes or our Childrens'.
