Yes, as quickly as possible
No, we should stay and continue the mission.
We have been in Afghanistan for 10 years, the country is hardly any more stable than when we arrived. Karzai is hopeless and nobody actually has a plan to build a halfway functioning government. Pakistan with its nuclear arsenal is being destabilized by the fighting next door. Perhaps the biggest problem is that their is a complete lack of leadership on the issue. Nobody, not Obama, his predecessors, or any of the current presidential candidates has demonstrated any kind of willingness for hammering out a decisive strategy. The situation might be salvaged, but I have no confidence is any of the people in a position to do so.
It actually does takes that long to get out of that ****hole of a country. We can't even just pack up and drive out because our convoys get attacked regularly.
We would leave Afghanistan quickly if only the Taliban would step aside and let us.

But I agree that it's time to get out. The US military isn't much more popular than the Taliban.

Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

I would just appreciate it if they would step aside long enough for us to get out of their way. We won't let the door hit us on the way out. We've been in Afghanistan for far to long.

It was time for the US to leave before they arrived.
The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.
