As your National Security Council debates how to end your shitty little war in Afghanistan, I hope you will not defer to your military commanders. The purpose of the military is to waste as many lives and money as possible for the greater glory of their leaders. One of your prime functions is to keep them on a short leash, obedient to you. You and the country will be better off if you drawdown the troops as quickly as possible to end this shitty little war. Karzai of the Afghans has stolen more than enough US aid to buy all the Blackwater bully boys he wants. And don't forget to bring home the leftover 50,000 in Iraq. They don't want us and we don't belong there.
Better yet, close all US overseas bases and bring all the troops home. We are not an empire.
