          At least we know that if things get too tough, Trump can claim 'bone spurs' and resign, then hopefully, we could get on the right track.

                The US should just hand the power to the Hazara ethnic group and relinquish power from the Pashtuns. Hazaras are the most intelligent and educated afghans and the most secular. Out of the top 3 most educated provinces in Afghanistan, 2 of them are Hazara dominated areas: 1) Daikundi & 2) Bamyan. The Hazaras already have an enlightenment movement growing and are the only ones capable to carry it out to fruition. Low IQ Pashtun morons are no match for High IQ East Asian master race Hazaras.

                  The only way out of Afghanistan is to get out and stay out. Re-entering on the Taliban breaking a deal is tantamount to never getting out.

                    USA lost the war in Afghanistan. USA don't have ⚽ s to fight terrorism inside the pakistan.

                    • India have to Free Kashmir

                      Afghans are in danger because India keeps chanting terrorism against Pakistan. But infact India is funding terrorists like ISIS and Alqaida in Afghanistan and TTP in Pakistan . For regional peace India have to stop it immediately.

                        We should pull out of the Middle East completely. Fuck the Middle East. Bring our troops home and close our borders. Take care of our own people for a change.

                          The primadonald is again talking of “the Harvard University of terrorism” (no, not the USA—never the USA), but instead of Iraq . . .


                          . . . he now means Afghanistan . . .


                          The badly brought up son of Queens will never suggest publicly that his weak-minded gun-cuddling flock of boy sheeple includes either would-be domestic terrorists or future domestic terrorists or actual been-there-done-that-murdered-and-maimed-umpteen-innocent-people terrorists.

                                If the Taliban keep their promise of establishing a "unity government". Who's going to make sure the United States keeps its promise of withdrawal from Afghanistan.

                                  The West should just leave. Let the Afghans sort out their own problems. When we leave we should make it clear that if the Islamic nut jobs do a 9/11 on us or anyone else again, we will nuke one of their major population centers. What is the point of spending trillions on nukes if we do not use them? The fear of being nuked kept the Soviets at bay for decades, I'm pretty sure the Jihadis realize whatever they worship is not powerful enough to stop a B-52 armed with a 10 kiloton nuke.

                                            18 yrs and you talk of schools!!! Taliban would have built schools without destructions and deaths. Vetnam is one country because force. Taliban should take it by force. A unified country is better than allowing US to continue to cause instability for years to come

                                                        Fared is talking about political power sharing in Afghanistan, that is a misnomer. Corrupt political structure is mainly responsible for the chaos in the country. War lords run politics in Afghanistan. US should exit and let the people of Afghanistan decide what they want to do with their country.
