    You know, common sense stuff.
    By that logic, we created more Wehrmacht by attacking Germany, during WW2. Should we have stopped at Germany's borders and negotiated a peace??

    The two wars are different. The first they had assistance from the US, and the entire nation was opposed to the Communists.

    Both of these happened eventually, but weren't the case to start. Originally, there were some Afghanis who were in favor if communism of some sort. The heavy handed intrigues of the USSR pretty much put an end to that.
    Since the Afghanis like the US so much better, they're prob'ly turning in the people who fight our troops in droves. I am sure that they will have turned in the last one by the time I finish this post.

    Or perhaps the area has an age old tradition of despising foreign occupiers that dates back at least hundreds of years if not longer.

    If they're not turning in the people who're fighting the US troops, perhaps their sympathies are not with the US as much you propose. Perhaps it may even be that Afghanis think they'd rather have us gone.
    If you have evidence as to how many Afghanis want the US troops in their country, please provide it.
    I may be wrong.
