Afghanistan: where all powerful empires go to die.
Remember this story of the Afghanistan invasion being planned well before 9/11/01? Of course, an unprovoked attack was out of the question.
As for Obama, his position on this issue is one of several reasons why his popularity contiunues to nosedive like a washed up rocker.

If we pull out of Afghanistan could we at least attack Honduras? It’s a small country, not too many people live there, no one will probably even notice! Please, pretty please.

But you cannot go isolationist without you also excluding yourself and then making yourselves into a target or a victim.
So, that's a LOVELY fantasy. Very utopia agrarian. I know that appeals to a lot of people.
As a way of making sure that your country lasts for another ....maybe hundred years.... before you get completely wiped out by a dominating culture its PERFECT.
You live in a time of sharpening and densification of socio-religious-economic-cultural-linguistic thought forms. A time when there are more people on Earth than your ancestors could have ever imagined in their isolationism.
Your way won't save you. It'll just pacify until a more dominant force comes for you.
