Exit Afghan war immediately

Does any intelligent person out there honestly believe that when we finally exit the Afghan cesspool we will leave anything behind other than an ignorant, illiterate, fanatical, opium-dealing rabble governed as usual by warlords, tribal leaders and corrupt politicians? The threat of terrorism will remain as it is today. Why, then, do we continue to send young men and women to their deaths and pile up more national debt? England and Russia had their lesson long ago. But we still go on trying to turn a pig sty into a Disneyland. Obama, bite the bullet: Don’t wait until July 2011 to bring the troops home. Do something right: Bring them home now! Let them patrol and protect our borders. It’s been nine long years. Enough! Stop this senseless waste of blood and money. Arne Celick, Auburn
