      wage in the name of national service, it's a good thing. We don't want to leave a vacuum as we did after the Soviets left and we abandoned the mujahideen.
      Obviously corruption and abuse of power are still issues that have to be addressed.
      It's also a good thing if the other NATO countries and Europe share in the cost, as opposed to us footing the bill alone.

      You can't make this stuff up.
