    Did they not demand that our soldiers be punished for pissing on Taliban bodies? And Hillary profusely apologized and promised swift and severe punishment. Is not obama engaging in peace talks and negotiations with them?

    From their point of view, they have surely won.

    Their organization is in tact and they didn't have to change any of their radical backwards policies or give up anything, yes they did win.

    Did anyone not see this coming?
    News flash: everyone who's tried to control Afghanistan--and who's not from there--gets their ass kicked.
    "Thanks for coming fellas. Thanks for the weapons. We can use them on the next bunch of assholes who try to fuck with us. Thanks again. Peace ;)"

    The last civilization imposed on Afghanistan was Alexander the Great. He did it by killing everyone until they shaped up.

    Staying there to rebuild their fucking country was a mistake, they are not interested in the advancements we could have given them, they are perfectly fine living in mud huts, fucking goats and beating the living shit out of their women.

    They could have stayed there just like that forever, had they just stayed in Afghanistan and not become a training ground for terrorist distribution.

    The mistake was in assuming that the people wanted to use the democratic process for electing leadership for the same bests interests that we think are best interests.

    The Afghans have been fighting invaders for millinia.

    Long before they embraced Islam as their religion.

    It is in their DNA

    We are just the most recent in a long line of invaders who found out the hard way that Afghans will always refuse to be subdued or occupied.

    They should be admired for their courage and adherence to their cultural past.

    There isn't a whole lot to be proud of as far as cultural past goes. They have no art, music, inventions, philosophies or anything else that would speak to "culture". They have some creative ways of bloodletting.

    This doesn't mean that someone has the right to march in there and impose an alien and unwanted civilization on them. Because whatever they practice as a culture is so barbaric it is incumbent on other countries to protect themselves from the spread of cultural murder. Afghanistan needs more than non-interference, it needs or perhaps a better statement would be that others need Afghanistan to be in quarantine.
