    I am interested Redress in how you see a lasting positive outcome coming about, and how approximately long do you think it would take?

    Thanks!

    A positive outcome would be a relatively stable government in place and with enough power to police itself to prevent the return of terrorist groups who threaten the US. How long it will take I have no idea.

Afghans don't want us there, granted the country is more or less a failed state but even the slowest person in the world can tell someone if they want them around or not. All this war is doing now is costing US military and Afghan civilian lives and flushing tax payer money down the drain.
    So then why the Afghans I see are happy to see us and wanting us there?

    No...we are not. The Russians had something in common with every invader going back to Alexander. They were all there to conquer and absorb. America is not there to conquer. America had made some initial mistakes that the others made. But we recognize that a Pashtun government that respects the soveriegnty of the local tribes within is not only the past, but the future. Unlike the Russians, we are working to create a police force and a military force and we are injecting the seeds for success. Along the way, our programs include replacing the poppy fields with agriculture. We have also began a program that will give the government generate revenue fromits huge natural gas deposits recently discovered. None of this suggests the "same well-worn path."

    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.

    Re: Do you support Obama in continuing the Afghanistan war?

    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.
