Hope the place does not descend into the chaos it did after the Russians left…I’m sure Karzai has stashed millions in offshore accounts in case he has to flee…

We could stay there forever and it would still be the same. If the afghans aren’t ready to take over their own security by now, they never will be. Why should even one more american die there?

I want to know how much the US taxpayers will continue to throw down this bottomless pit in the years to come. Interesting that nothing regarding the funding of Afghanistan was mentioned in this or other articles regarding the monetary decisions made.
