Leave Afghanistan now

With the federal budget shortfall, why don’t we get the heck out of Afghanistan now? We are scheduled to get out in 2014, and it costs over $100 billion a year to stay.

If we stay any longer training their troops, it will be over 20 years, and they will be retiring. We will have to start all over.

What are we accomplishing by staying? More lives lost? More debt? Why?
