Well I can not say much about that as My Viking ancestors did things like that all the time *smile* But yeah we do not need to go back to those dark ages by allowing this. We should just get out of Afghanistan like we did Iraq and let them kill themselves like they have been doing for over 2000 years. Our presence there is not going to stop that any time soon.

KN,

I reluctantly agree with you. Why reluctantly? Because I've seen the poor girls there and what they have to look forward to and my protector instincts kick in and think we need to help them. They are going to have a horrible life ahead of them for the most part.

Afghanistan vs USA History & Civil Business Politics

Trump cautions against 'hasty withdrawal' in Afghanistan, but won't discuss troop deployments. President Trump, admitting his original instinct was to pull out of Afghanistan, warned against a quick withdrawal from the country that could leave a power vacuum. Still, the president said he would not televise specific numbers of troops or plans for further military activities. "Conditions on the ground, not arbitrary timetables, will guide our strategies from now on. I will not say when we are going to attack, but attack we will," he said. Ref. USAToday.

Analysis: Trump reverses views on Afghanistan, a war with no easy exits. Bush and Obama discovered that Afghanistan was the war they couldn't win. That's a lesson Trump is learning now. Source 7f.

USA Afghanistan

Afghanistan is a tough nut to crack. They fight each other all the time. They are in some of the most defensible terrain there is. And they are fiercely independent. All of that leads to a country that's hard to beat if we don't go in 100% to win. 100% leads to collateral damage, which is a no go.

So, people may ask why this is so tough. Why such a small country with few military resources is so tough. Let me relate a story a village elder told me when I was over there over a decade ago. My team and I were there with a group of representatives from the Afghan government and they were asking what they could do to help the village. He told them and then they asked if they could count on his support. He smiled, waved his arm around the village, and then pointed at himself. He said, "The blood in my veins has been Afghan for 60 years, it's been Muslim for 600 years, it's been Pushtun for 6,000 years."

So yeah, he would let the Government help his village. It would be foolish not to let them. He'd let us SF guys help his village too. But he wouldn't turn his back on his Pushtun tribe, many of whom were the bad guys we were fighting. That said, his was a friendly village and he sided with us more than against us. It goes to show that Afghanistan isn't so much a country as it is a collection of tribes that happen to live within a fictitious border that the Great Powers drew up 150 years ago. The only way to beat people like that is to break their will to resist… or just leave and let them have at it like for the last 6,000 years.

We either need to fight to win over there or get the heck out. And it pains me to say that since so much of my life is invested over there and I have friends who dies fighting over there. More, I have Afghan friends who will be left in the cold and I'm pretty sure the Afghan government will fall and the Taliban will take control again unless we do something to eradicate it.
