As long as they keep killing each other I would say it is a good thing.

It is time to revisit an EARLIER US Military engagement in Afghanistan, under Carter/Reagan.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_war_in_Af ...

"On July 3, 1979, United States President Jimmy Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul.[23] The aim of the U.S. was to drag the Soviet Union into the "Afghan trap" as U.S. National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski termed it."
------
At that time, the Soviet Union was the United States chief opponent; and the goals were simple, end the reign of the Soviet puppet government.

US action was pro-active, peripheral and fully coordinated with the freedom forces in Afghanistan.
Upon obtaining our objectives, the United States withdrew and the Afghan people had no animus toward the United States.

This is the DIFFERENCE between a PRO-AMERICAN and a Pro-Globalist action that we see today in Afghanistan.

We have gone from Carter/Reagan to Dumb/Dumber!!!

Get out now!!!
