Based on the decline in attacks, and the handling of security by Afghans (which is better than it was under NATO) someone explain to me why we are still there, and why we need to “train” the Afghans.
There is no explanation, that is why the question is never really asked and there is never an answer as to why we are still in Afghanistan. Romney “we will stay in Afghanistan” Obama “we still stay in Afghanistan” and nobody pushed them as to why. Now we learn troops will remain after 2014 to “help train the Afghans”. What is going on?
I suspect they have found a lot of oil there.
