    To hell with Nation building.Al qaeda is in Packistan.Osama Bin Laden is dead.
    The CIA and Special Ops can handle future threats from terrorist cells in Aghanistan and
    Packistan.Cut off all aid to Packistan as well.They were hiding that terrorist pig.
    Pull all Troops out of Afghanistan and save Billions.

    Yep.

    Obama has the political capital - it's a perishable item with short shelf life - he should use it. Pull us out of that shithole now, declare victory (because it is) and walk away. I think he would get almost universal support from the folks on that. The hyper-partisans though, no matter. They're not going to support anything he says, does or thinks no matter what. So it's a no-lose scenario both for Obama politically and for the country overall. There's no downside that I can see.


    But yeah, let's de-ass Afghanistan with all possible speed.

    And have to re-invade both Pakistan and Afghanistan here in 5 years anyways when we lose a city to one of Pakistan's nukes. Brilliant!

    Like it or not, we're in deep with both Afghanistan and Pakistan. Abandon Afghanistan and it'll revert to being a having for drug traders and terrorists and we'll face another major attack based out of there inside a decade. Abandon Pakistan and the extremists will seize control of the government, sell the nukes off to other extremists, and start WWIII with India.

    Like it or not, we're in there until we win, or we come back and do it all again.

    The Military may leave but the CIA and Civilian "Contractors" will remain. Too much opium to leave in the hands of those backwards cavemen.

    Takes a Dem President to keep the opium trade going. :D

    Problem is we will never win.
    We can either stay there forever or leave and just come back if they mess with us. Otheriwse leave them alone to their own messes.

    check the stats of the opium trade under Bush.
    He did very well in that area.

    Newsflash! Bush No Longer President! Obama KNOWINGLY and WILLINGLY Continues To Facilitate Opium Trade In Afghanistan!
