    What business does the United States have in Afghanistan?

    That's pretty much the agreement that I'm watching go down.

    Your numbers are way off. The 5000 are included in that 14,000. We would be leaving 9,000 troops. The main sticking point is that the Taliban want all US troops and CIA/ mercenaries gone!

    I'm not sure I've ever seen (read) you care, it would throw me all off if you started that shit now.

    Do you think the Afghanis are undeserving of self determination?

    I do think they are deserving of self determination.

    Who then, pray tell; do you think has the right to determine their rule if not they themselves?
