President Obama inherited two expensive wars. He eliminated Osama bin Laden, so I take it our troops' extended stay was intended to train Afghans to fight the Taliban.
This is not a country in which we have a strong national interest. It does not cherish our presence, nor is it willing to adopt our democratic ways. Its leaders are corrupt. Now the same policemen we trained are killing our troops.
If NATO forces are no longer patrolling alongside Afghan security personnel, what keeps us from speeding up the withdrawal of our soldiers? The Taliban will most likely regain control over much of Afghanistan soon, and if the president were to ask us, most would say they don't care.
