And we are here, why?

This is the kind of news that makes you want to gag.

"Abdullah Abdullah, the chief rival to President Hamid Karzai,
plans to announce on Sunday his decision to withdraw from the
Nov. 7 run-off election, effectively handing a new five-year
term to Mr. Karzai, according to Western diplomats here and
people close to Mr. Abdullah."

Now is the time to change our emphasis from a war we'll never win, to an aid mission that will educate and truly help the people of Afghanistan. Imagine, if they were educated, thieves such as Karzai wouldn't have a chance.

An odd fact; true, maybe not...but I read that the cost to support one U.S soldier for a year in Afghanistan would build 200 schools for these beleagured people.
