Why we're over there

Though it's relatively easy to argue that it's best for us to leave Afghanistan, it's difficult, if not impossible, to argue that our doing so would leave Afghans better off.

"Afghanistan will fall back into anarchy," Afghan President Hamid Karzai told a group of Canadian journalists recently.

"Leaving Afghanistan alone now will bring back all the evils that were here under the Taliban."

Leaving Afstan now would allow al-Qaeda to re-build their bases for international terrorist operations again. That cannot be allowed to happen - so if the West leaves it will have to make sure that no living thing is left behind.
