It strikes me that being at war IN Afghanistan is not the same as being at war WITH Afghanistan. There is no "Afghanistan" in any real sense. The Karzai family is simply another one of the many warlords, and not even one of the toughest. And the warlords will always win there. And they will keep killing each other. And Bin Laden is long gone. And we can't find him in those mountains anyway. So WHY ARE WE STILL THERE AGAIN? It was NOT the Afghan PEOPLE who protected Al Queda. It was the Taliban. And there is no way to "defeat" an amorphous group like the Taliban with a bunch of troops on the ground.

Oh stop making so much sense. That kind of talk MIGHT lower the flow of money into Blackwater/Halliburton coffers. Nah, that's crazy talk.
