How long would you see the troops there?

Most Americans didn't want us to be there in the first place.  Unfortunately our dear leaders apparently didn't understand 1) Afghani's don't want us there; 2) Russia was routed by very less-armed, less-advanced guerrilla warfare.  Why on earth our military didn't understand the same would happen to us, we will never know. 

Now that we've been "keeping the peace" for what, 12 years now, I don't know if the population of Afghanistan want us to remain, in hopes that our troops will be protection from insurgents, or do they consider us insurgents.  

I personally want all of our troops to come home.  Maybe someone on this forum with a more in-depth explanation of why we are there in the first place and why we should stay there, could better answer your question (BM100?.

Afghanistan is INCREDIBLY rich in Minerals 

Russia invaded Afghanistan for complex reasons relating to China / Pakistan and the USA - Suffice to say their machinations became unhinged 

The US Invasion was to dismantle AQ and remove the Taliban , they got half of what they wanted and lost in the end to the Taliban 

Complex ideas by Russia and the US mostly achieved nothing

The Taliban will just wake up from hibernation and pick up where they left off.

So yeah.  Understandable amount of fleeing for their lives.

Especially considering the poor translators are not being protected.
