You mean protect the oil pipelines.

We coud leave advisers in Afghanistan for the next 20 years, they still won't have an army or police force. All those people understand is to get some cash in their pocket and desert. They feel that their tactics are better than ours. We have been in Afghanistan for 10 years all that has happened is the terrorists are getting stronger. The Russian were there for 20 years. All the Afghans had were rocks and very few rifles. The Afghans managed to steal light weapons from the Russians and use them effectively against them.

We need to worry about securing the oil pipelines and let those people alone. They have been at war for so long they have a huge illiteracy problem and no commerce beyond a market in the street under a tent. I can't imagine living in a place that has no nationwide food distribution system.
