    Without a dramatic change of strategy, it seems we will lose by 2012.

    Get the hell out by 2012......

    Ten years is more than enough time. If the country is still fucked up at that time, I don't give a shit

    2 years should have been enough.

    One of the more likely scenarios I see unfolding is Karzai getting the idea that allying with the Americans is a bad idea, given they are on their way out, and he will declare he is allied with the Taliban to rid of the country of foreign oppressors.
    In fact, I cannot see why he will not do this. Obama has done all he can to alienate him and his strategy for Afghanistan was a loser from the moment he spent 9 months to come up with one that his general said had a small chance of success.
