Why We Can’t Just Leave Afghanistan

For those of you who are unequivocally and unquestioningly anti-war, do you really want to leave the region in the hands of a regime so insecure it would execute a 7 year-old boy?

Regardless of whether or not you supported the initial invasion, the fact of the matter is that we are there, and we now have a moral responsibility to establish some measure of security for the mass of innocent civilians who would again be terrorized under Taliban rule.

    This is a huge problem, though. At what point is Afghanistan secure enough to leave, is what we’re putting in place better enough consistently enough, and are we doing more harm than good being there?

    Basically, I suggest judiciously stabbing anyone who claims to have an easy answer, then drinking until the situation makes sense. It couldn’t be a worse policy than what we’re doing now.
