When will the Joint Chiefs wake up and demand that our people get the hell out of there?

As if we shouldn't have seen this coming ages ago. Afghans cannot be trusted.
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

I don't think it's so much that they cannot be trusted, but that they have their own ways - honed over centuries of local warfare - and they're not about to give them up for some snot-nosed Americans who think they can reconfigure Afghan society/culture on the fly.

Afghans are just Afghans, the way Americans are just Americans.

That being said, it would be wiser to stage a strategic withdrawal with honor, and avoid the ultimate run-out we had to put up with in Vietnam (similar to what the Soviets put up with when they left Afghanistan).  The recent "invitations" from the Afghans to further isolate American forces should simply be accepted and US troops withdrawn, period.

WWII ended, and we would NOT allow Germany and Japan to rise up, much less continue with resistance like we have allowed the muslims to dop.

If we depart, islam will call it victory and be strengthened, knowing they can out wait us.

We should win victory, by killing far, far more civilians, as w did in WWII.

Yeah, that's the ticket.  Worked real well for the Soviets, didn't it.
