    Obama did not put us there. Had he simply pulled out with a snap decision and a fast withdrawal , where might we be? What consequences might we face for not taking the time needed?
    No one seems to know the exact situation over there. And soon it will get even more complicated with a new general, a new ambassador and a new "Karzai".

    Yes, Obama did put "us" there, no getting around that.
    Subtract 32,700 from 101,000 and add 132,000 private contractors.

    Where might we be?
    Could it be worse after the past 3 1/2 years? A soldier a day dying - for what? 2 billion dollars a week being spent.


    What consequences might we face for not taking the time needed?
    Big question- time needed? to stabilize a country?
    to build a national security force (50 billion spent by the US alone on training them with defecting rate of 1 out 7)

    Will we bankrupt our own country to keep Afghanistan afloat?

    We are into our second decade of war there.

    It is no secret that the war is not going well.

    We have only the hope that some 2 years down the line, it will get better. And the hope that we may end the war. The hope that the Afghans will stand up so the US can step down.
