Fox article about hotel bombingurl=] south_and_central_asia/[/url]
I really don't believe that we can fix this part of the world. As soon as we start to talk about bringing home the surge troops, we have more issues. It's tiring...
I don't believe we have either the right or the ability to bring peace "on our terms" here. The cultures are different and we are far too widely resented.
Why are we wasting our time, our money, and our soldiers lives someplace where we aren't even wanted?
What have we gotten out of it?
If we felt more secure would all of this TSA nonsense be happening?
This is all so out of hand.

I can't help but agree. I don't want to seem cold but our country, indeed the Western World, is close to a meltdown and it just seems like maybe we should be paying attention to our own issues and working to fix our own problems. Instead we have spent more money than I can calculate, and for what? What real progress do we have to show for our interventions? I will freely admit that I am becoming more isolationist every day but that's just because I am over it. So very, very over it.

You can expect this kind of violence to escalate as US forces plan to withdraw.

There are forces on ALL sides who do not want this to end, EVER! and will stop at nothing to keep us involved there militarily and in many other ways.

Just the beginning of a new and perhaps much more dangerous wave of violence in Afghanistan.

A wave that will not only assure the continuation of US involvement, but also perhaps an increase in numbers and equipment.
