    In the middle of the most backward, godforsaken, remote,  14th century place on the planet.  Let them train on their pathetic monkey bars all they want and sit around and talk about who hates the US most.  The last place we want to do is drive all enemies of the great Empire into the urban areas, the big cities, where they have access to all sorts of modern communications, resources, etc.  Then they might really get dangerous.

    And we can't drag the Afghanistan people into the modern world.  They will have to come, if they want, on their own, in their own time and way.  Meanwhile, they will practice their medieval lifestyle and it's none of our business.  

    And when we leave, and leave we will, they will say good riddance and go about living their lives the way they want to.  Probably 15th century style.
