Combination hook-shot? – Watch out for ballsnipers.
If that’s the goal, we’ve lost already. There’s no way the US can guarantee a stable Afghanistan – that’s something only Afghanis can achieve. I think it’s time to get out.

They may not have any oil, but we’ve got to stay there now so the Russians and the Chinese don’t get the Trillion $$$ worth of minerals.
BLUE – You are quoteing the Russians, the British, the Mongols, and every other empire that got mired down in Afganistan – there may be trillions there, but it will not be cost effective to stay and try to get to it.
i think afganistan will ALWAYS be afganistan.
GET OUT before any more lives are lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who is the man in the mountain; or is that just my imagination?
Hmmmm, pup, three glasses of wine and there are SEVERAL!
Bin Laden died years ago…

^Well Cloward my Pivins! There it is again!
