Afghanistan doesn't want to be saved.
Time to leave.
Time for the Muslimes to leave and repopulate Afghanistan with nice Buddhists who inhabited Afghanistan before the Muslimes.
The most urgent things Afghanistan needs saving from are the US and its NATO brotherhood gang.
Go fuck yourself Lafrique, NATO and the US will be gone soon and than the people of Afghanistan will get butt raped by the Taliban.
The Russians were there 9 years and accomplished nothing but filling body bags. History is littered with failed campaigns to conquer and hold this territory.
When we leave it will fall back into the quagmire it was before. To change it it you need to occupy it for generations, 30 or 40 years, and change the mind set of the youth. This is what has happened to the Arab world, the young are being taught hate and it has laid the groundwork for a century of religious warfare. we are only at the beginning stages of this war and as the young people get older and push out the elders the Middle East will become an inferno of hate. Beware.
Did we go there to 'save' Afghanistan? No. We went to protect America.
I think we over commited ourselves to Afghanistan, I know at the beginning of this we made all kinds of promises of democracy, to rebuild their country, let their women go to school etc etc but perhaps this was all a little too enthusiastic, it doesn't seem like too many of the Afghan people want these things or we wouldn't be facing so much resistance, we have been in that country for 10 years and most of the people outside the major cities still live in mud huts with no running water and eletricity and they seem content in that fact. We should have just focused on removing the threat from Afghanistan and leave the rebuilding stuff alone, the people there don't seem interested in our help and don't want it. They want to live in a 8th century world dominated by the Quran, and if thats what they really want than they should have it, but only as long as they are threat to themselves and nobody else.
You are definently spot on that we initially went into Afghanistan for our own interests CG however our mission in Afghanistan has changed several times since October 2001 when we initially went in, at first it was to topple the Taliban, kill or capture Bin Laden and close down the Al Qaeda training camps in the country, than we got ourselves into the rebuilding business of bringing demoracy to the country, rebuilding their schools, infrastructure etc, than it was to try and stop the flow of drugs coming from inside the country which is at some of the highest levels ever seen, and now I am hearing that our main focus is rebuilding their Military and police to the Afghans can continue the fight on their own after we leave, the mission in Afghanistan has definently been morphed and changed over time.
