    I regret what is about to happen to the women and girls and those who cooperated and supported Americans in Afghanistan. In a perfect world, the world would be involved. The USA cannot even take care of its own infrastructure, neither can it properly care of its children and disenfranchised. We cannot continue to invest in a nation whose own leaders are stealing from the people. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for the Taliban to kill him. It will be equally interesting to see how long it takes for the Taliban to get settled in Afghanistan and immediately turn around to attack Pakistan who has been protecting so many of them for so long.
    Welcome those who served there with open arms and write to your legislators demanding jobs, medical support, and protection of these brave men and women who represented us abroad while we shopped, watched sports, and went on with lives with our families… something they weren’t able to do while serving.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Sadly, one of the first women to go might be Sharbat Gula, shown as a young girl on the cover of the June, 1985 National Geographic, and used in advertising many times since. The magazine recently had a retrospective photo issue, and interestingly there were several snarky comments about the use of her picture. I appreciate that the magazine printed them.

    People these days feel so very free to voice their petty irritations. The Internet is a mixed blessing in that regard. In a way, it is better to see raw opinions than the sanitized letters printed in newspaper Letters to the Editor. However, is it possible that people then feel no need to be polite and thoughtful? That thoughtless rudeness becomes reinforced by seeing it from others? Exchange of ideas has become more like verbal sniping. I often wonder if people are just ignorant of facts or intend to be deliberately misleading.
    .
    It’s so strange to see courteous comments such as yours, and please keep writing. You are a partial antidote to the occasional poisons that pop out of the mud.

    I still (tongue slightly in cheek) think the solution would be empty our prisons and deposit the inmates in Afghanistan….

    These prisoners you propose to send into a war zone aligned against them, Who are they?

    Mostly the inmates are young black nonviolent drug offenders.
    I have to disagree on these Americans deserving the death penalty for their offense.
    My tongue in not in my cheek.

    >>…the Second British Afghan War installed a king who started a line that kept Afghanistan in fairly decent shape until the Soviet invasion<<

    That’s not the take I get on reading “The Afghan Wars 1839-42 and 1878-80 by Archibald Forbes” (available at Project Gutenberg for free). It was just one tinpot dictatorlet after another.

    @Enoki

    You want to give non-violent (mostly drug) offenders what amounts to a death penalty?

    Your tongue may be in your cheek, but it is not noticible because your head is so far up your ass it doesn’t show.

    Not at all. I consider my idea a “jobs” program. Instead of murderous, vicious gangsters and assorted other career criminals sitting in prison on our dime we put them to work eradicating terrorist scum just like them.

    They have three big advantages in our favor over the locals:
    .
    They are greedy and will see an opportunity to make money once there.
    .
    They speak English so it will be easier in the long run to deal with them.
    .
    They know about indoor plumbing and will want it.

    If it does not benefit Enoki, it is for naught.

    Karzai is going to end up to parts unknown, to live off the money he has stashed there, in luxury. We never should have invaded Afghanistan, and we NEVER should have let Karzai rule. Charlie Wilson did know who we should have backed, but we ended up stabbing them all in the back.

    I’m not nearly that narcissistic eugene…
    Actually I have the heart of a small child. I keep it in a box on my dresser at home, just like Dick Cheney…

    Enoke,
    I have the soul of a warrior. I keep it trapped in a bottle in my cellar.
