I think a decade is plenty long enough to be screwing around in Afghanistan. We can't afford to spend a couple billion a month on wars right now... not at the expense of destroying our currency as we feverishly print money to catch up.

If it takes us 10 years to pacify a nation that lacks an air force, armored corps, advanced command & control infrastructure, even formal military forces, we're doing something wrong. We can't run around over there indefinitely killing people that we think might be radical Muslims. We need to prop their government up, train their military/police (we can do it through private contractors), and get the Hell out of there.

I'm sick of these money pits, especially in these critical economic times where we face a complete collapse of our financial infrastructure and the end of the green backs dominance on the global markets.

But Obama is destroying just about everything else, and Americans just love a good war... so perhaps it's our turn to go the way of Rome with a big happy war face smile.
