There is absolutly no justification for our being in Afganistan. Ours is an illegal, criminal presense and any discussion beyond that only multiplies the irrationality of it. The very same holds true for Iraq and our bullying treatment and threats to Iran.

Petraeus should step down and McCrystal canned, better yet-court marshalled.
