That's a really tough question to answer, surprisingly.
It all depends on why you think we're there to begin with.
If you think that we went to oust the Taliban and stabilise the country then we aren't done because the Taliban are making a comeback. So in this
scenario we need to be there and finish the job.
Can this be done? No. It would be like killing %99 of bacteria on a kitchen surface, after you clean that %1 will multiply and come back. This is
exactly what TPTB know and want. War is good. war=money, always has always will.
if you think we're there to secure a pipeline to the Caspian Basin Oil Reserve than we are NEVER going to leave there, we'll always be there.
Perhaps once it's built the Taliban will sign a peace treaty thus ending the need for such a presence, but we'll still be there to guard the
If you think Afghanistan is about the War on Terror, well that's a load of bull too.
Either way, none of these scenarios deserve another drop of UK, US and Afghani blood being spilt. Having said that I will support our boys 'n' girls
to the death.
Much respect to you my friend, I hope my views don't insult you, you sincerely have my support, as do all the armed forces, you don't choose who you
fight, you just do what your told.
