    We should probably just get out now instead of waiting other year and ½. if we have any more problems from there, just decimate the area… Screw it

    I don't know why people think the US is gonna' get out anytime soon when there are HUGE opium profits to be made there.

    Nuking or carpet bombing will only disrupt all that.

    Joint patrols aren't enough. The afghans need to be prohibited from the base itself since that's where the insider attacks are coming from.
