“Steeper Pullout Raised As Option For Afghanistan” (TIMES, 6/6/11)


Yes, by all means, a steeper troop reduction in Afghanistan is the order of the day, and the sooner this is initiated the better.

It is the only way to press Hamid Karzai “to get more of his forces to take the lead” in creating a viable government. It is also the kick in the pants necessary to get other Afghan leaders to take a more active role in putting their country together.

Too many U.S. service members have died in this quagmire and the monetary cost is unsustainable now that our country is wallowing in an economic downturn.
