End Of War Conditions
What would it take for the Americans to consider that they had won sufficiently in Afghanistan?
- Less than 100 Al Qaeda left? No. That happened long ago.
- Less than 100 Taliban left? Not likely. The majority of Afghans support the Taliban in their effort to eject the American occupation. That would require a massive blood bath.
- Have 75% of Afghans support Hamid Karzai. Not bloody likely. He is the most corrupt dictator on the planet. Not even the Americans like him. He will never enjoy popular support.
The Americans have rigged things so they cannot win. They have set things up so that have to fight endlessly for the profit of GE, Halliburton, Xe (née Blackwater) etc. Corporations are happy to have the war proceed forever. It saves the profit disruption required to start new wars should the public get too tired of the Afghan and Iraq wars.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
