#1 Valid question to ask, considering ....

* DAILY TIMES.PK > [Afghan] TALIBAN REJECT NATO'S TRAINING TROOPS FOR AFGHANISTAN.

* SAME > US DEFEATED IN AFGHANISTAN, SAYS MUBASHAR HASSAN, wid Islamabad's decision to close its domestic land routes to US-NATO logistics in support of the Pak people, sovereignty, + keep them closed, a major catalyst in the US defeat.

Mao Zedong's adage describing the US as a "paper tiger" proves correct???

* BHARAT RAKSHAK > PAKISTAN SUPPLY ROUTES CRUCIAL TO NATO'S EXIT, in 2014.

* TOPIX > NATO: NO LARGE DRAWDOWN OF FORCES WIDOUT PAKISTAN SUPPLY ROUTES.

* SAME > TALIBAN, AFGHAN NEIGHBORS COULD HAMPER NATO EXIT.

FYI I've read MSM-Net Artics on how its actually the Afghan Taliban + aligned MilTerrs whom are worse off wid Pakistan's decisions to close the land routes, as their covert supply sources vee corrupt Afghan Govt-Army Officials no longer have any Goodies for them to carry on wid Jihad???

IFF ONE BELIEVES THAT THE TTP IS CONTROLLED BY THE PAK-ISI, ETC. THEN BY THE ABOVE SCOPE THE PAK ISI IS ITS OWN WORST ENEMY, VEE MILTERR-LED JIHAD/INSURGENCY, AS PER TRYING TO EXPAND PAK INFLUENCE + CONTROL [Pak Agenda] IN AFGHANISTAN???

#2 Why is Obama abandoning the Afghans?
By Ahmed Rashid

Simple, because the largely illiterate population are so set in their inbred Islamic ways that nothing will ever change in that anus of the world .

#6 Obama can't abandon the Afghans, because there is no such thing as an Afghan.

Although, the kleptocracy under Karzai find it profitable to label themselves as such.

#7 Why is Obama abandoning the Afghans?

Because they proved that liberals had only one dead-on-target critique of GWB's War on Terror approach - namely, that some cultures are just too barbaric to benefit from freedom and democracy. Going forward, the Derbyshire Plan is the preferred approach.

#8 "Because even a stopped clock is right twice a day?" That's a keeper.

#9 Why is Obama abandoning the Afghans?

Because he thinks they're an ally?
