Would you support pulling out of Afghanistan IF the Taliban turned over all members of Al Qeada, dead or alive?
I think it is a good question to debate. Do we really give a fuck about Afghanistan? I think we only give a fuck about killing Bin Laden and his fellow jackasses. So what do you guys think? Is Afghanistan worth another US soldier if Al Qeada gets its nuts cut off?
I don't think that place will ever have something that could be called a government. If the good people in that country do not rise up and make an effort at establishing some sort of stability, then staying there is pointless. Some folks say that Al Queda is in the lawless region of Pakistan anyway.
I don't think it is wise to leave the Taliban in power, for long term success. Sort of like mowing the lawn without doing the edging, weed whacking...etc. Looks alright at first but gets all fucked up later.
if we pull out of afghanistan and the taliban continue to have control or influence, then we loose.
I agree. Al Quaeda had leaders of a country that actively supported them not just gave them freedom to train. The Taliban is an active supporter of terrorism and should not be allowed to take over a country again.

I have to agree with a quote from former Treasury Secretary William E. Simon: "Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote."
The Taliban are murderers of women and children. And they do so because of religious reasons. You can't count on them to even have a conscience. They are really no different than the Nazi SS of World War II. Their place is in the middle ages and they are in the wrong time, violence is all they understand. So we should give them violence, IE they should be exterminated.
If the President won't support the troop numbers needed to supply what the generals request to fight and win then, hell yes bring them home, call it a loss . It will be Obama's loss. I'm not for fighting a half-ass war. Fight to win. The current ROE put in by Obama is causing American soldiers to die. Bring them home with honor and blame Democrats and Obama for the loss.
