Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
As someone in Afghanistan I totally support the War and say we stay in until we finish the job.

If the U.S. doesn't police the world who will.... then U.N?

No....it is not. The programs that the Marine Corps has been tasked with over the last year has produced huge strides towards making this government stronger. Our achievements have been far more drastic than what had been seen before. The ANSF and the ANAF are responding and becoming more aggressive intheir responses to stampout their corruptions. After another couple years of the current trend, it will be "over."
And for all you "get them back" crusaders, remember that this was the half witted slogan of the left in regards to Iraq too. Had we just "gotten them out" earlier on, Iraq would not be on the road to recovery today serving as an example for the rest. And all those troops that they "got out" wouldsimply be headed back to deal with a bigger problem. You want the troops to be out of danger? Get the hell out of their way and let them do the job you wanted before you realized that it would cost lives and money.
According to Obama's National Security Council, our current purpose in Afghanistan is to degrade the Taliban rather than defeat them (which is problematic, too costly, and too time consuming). However, I think it is a fool's game as long as sanctuary exists in Pakistan's Northwest Frontier Provinces. In addition, we are also in the unenviable position of protecting the extremely corrupt Karzai government.
