We went into Afghanistan to get Osama. Your predecessor let him escape so he could start another war in Iraq. We got Osama and the Iraqis are fully capable of running their own country. Even though you have claimed ownership of the shitty little war in Afghanistan, this would be a very good time to declare success and bring everyone home. Bring Everyone Home. It will do no good to leave elements behind as a token of empire, they will just be targets for people who want their country back.
End your shitty little war while you have wide spread approval. Better yet bring all troops in foreign postings home. We can't afford an empire anymore.
