Afghanistan is far removed geographically and culturally. The population is 80% illiterate, and can't even develop a national awareness, much less an international one. Communications are very poor. I doubt that one person in a thousand over there could even find Israel on a map. Not one in ten in USA can, even with our educational system. IMHO the only reason why the general is there is to put OBL's head on a pike. Anything else is futile. When we leave, its back to poppies and keeping the females ignorant. All this nation building nonsense will vanish like the morning mist.
