The ongoing saga of Afghanistan continues even as the United States and NATO forces are planning how they will depart from that fair land so far away. President Karzai wants foreigners out of his country, but of course, there is always that minor problem of something termed, “the Taliban.” He is willing to allow some American troops to remain on Afghan soil, but they must promise not to bomb at night, and to turn over all detainees to his authority.
Perhaps, it is time to cut the cord of life which binds the US and Afghanistan. Perhaps, it is time to tell Afghans they are on their own. Who knows, maybe bluntness will result in action regarding corruption. OK, I can dream, can’t I?
