It should go like this:

KABOOM!  Now they're all dead.  We win.  Time to go home.
 
2013-06-19 02:22:58 PM
Karzai isn't much better.  Maybe we should let them figure it out themselves.

The Taliban is A) Afghanistan's problem. The US needs to GTFO.

I woke up this morning and looked around. The NSA is spying on Americans and our government is negotiating with terrorists.

good job USA.
You've officially lost the war on terror.

There will never be peace
We should just say, "Hey, we are leaving. Please don't kill us on our way out".

Set it up so all their top people show up. Greet them at the table.
Find some minor excuse with their behavior to storm out of the place insulted.
Let the Predator drones send a few Hellfire missiles in after you are clear.

This is SPARTA!

We lost the war on terror when we adopted the patriot act, and wore the flag as a cape of justice, riding into war on the back of the horse called patriotism.

FTA:Mr Faizi says the row centres on the Taliban office using the title "Islamic Emirate Of Afghanistan". That was the formal name of the Islamist movement's government from 1996 until it was toppled in 2001. "The president is not happy with the name of the office," Mr Faizi said.

Guess we should all hate our country like you. Wait, everyone else in the world has patriotism in their country, but we shouldn't?

I would suggest it's a problem of distinguishing between allegiance to the country's name versus allegiance to the country's identity through the founding principles and historic values. To compare to a recent political event, a president who claims something is legal because the president does it.

Something is not necessarily American, in spirit, because America did it. We own the act, but can also condemn it. See: slavery. Slavery is against the principles that focus on the dignity of individuals and respect for fellow humans, however it did exist for a long time in the country. I would argue the practice is un-American, but it was done by Americans of a certain era.

I don't hate the country, but my love for what America is and can be does not absolve it from any misdeed or bad judgment. It's not perfect, and I won't be tricked into choosing between it being considered perfect or else it's an abomination.

You should investigate the difference between "patriotism" and "nationalism."

Somewhat, would have had a much greater effect to say "Hey if we even think anyone in your country had something to do with 9/11 you have x amount of time to deal with them. You fail we come and deal with everyone. Not a popular option but usually effective

Just as you did in Afghanistan and in Iran. Why are you surprised this time?

Thank God we spent eleventy sixty trillions so we could kill 2,500 our best and brightest, wound something like 25,000 and surrender to a bunch of rag headed vicious gay and woman hating Neanderthals who love them some goats.

Makes perfect sense.

Thanks, politically correct ROE.

I miss the gold old  days when the puppet-regimes we supported knew the definition of puppet and knew that if they didn't we would send an assassin to remind them.

Afghanistan as an entity was a BS notion from the start. The best thing we could have done in 2002 would have been to break up the country and let the less-than-completely-insane provinces/tribes go their separate ways from the Pashtun. Life would have sucked in the Pashtun areas, but it sucks now anyway and we could have at least saved that which could have been saved and left the rest to their fate without subjecting the entire "country" to the violence and disruptions that have continued to plague it for the past decade. Our policy has made about as much sense as the policy of trying to keep Pakistan and Bangladesh together.
