#2 Looks like somebody in Afghanistan wants more US econ goodies = handouts, just like somebody else wants the same in Pakistan.

#5 Get out now. No long term commitments. Leave this dirtbag to the civilians he so wants protected. Let them know that if any trouble comes to us from there we won't be as nice the next time we return.
