Guest post from Gary Good
Sitting in the United States, I wondered why it was necessary for the United States, and the international community, to remain in Afghanistan. Hadn't we built their military? Couldn't they take charge now? After six weeks on the ground listening, reading, and observing, I have come to the following conclusion.
We are here because me must Make Might Right. Day by day, there are pundits and politicians around the world calling for an end to international actions in Afghanistan. Yet, one never hears the same learned individuals explain what is to happen in Afghanistan after we leave them with a mighty force... A mighty force that is not a right force.
