Afghanistan: One Is Too Many: via HuffPost

One Is Too Many: via HuffPost http://huff.to/ZE0mcB Actually the purpose of invading Afghanistan was to root out the people behind the 9-11 attacks and then it got into mission creep. No amount of money or military support could save the decision to install Karzai as a puppet. There’s been no attempt in 12 years to provide a serious alternative to the Taliban. Karzai is probably going to be steamrolled when US forces are gone so it’s better to take everybody. If you want a conquered nation to grow to be a productive ally you do what was done in Germany and Japan, most importantly installing a credible political system. Create a one party system of thieves and the long term prospects are nil.
