There are times in life when one has to understand that it is time to go, and go far, far away. Such is the time for America in Afghanistan. Yesterday, another murder of two American special operations troops when an Afghan policeman opened fired at them. Villagers claimed that American troops were beating them, making mass arrests or imprisoning innocent peole. We have reached a point in time when it no longer matters if the claims are correct or incorrect. When people believe something with fervor, evidence is unimportant. Just check 35% of Americans who believe the world was created 10,000 years ago.
We can not return to the past. The US made a fundamental error in allowing Hamid Karzai and his merry band of incompetent theives to rob the nation blind and lose support among their own people. Afghanistan needed a government of businessmen and those believing in human rights. Instead they received Robin Hood and his merry band-only they robbed from all!
