RE: “NATO and Afghanistan” (TIMES, 5/19/12)


     No, NATO is out of time and it has never been much of an “alliance.”  The only country that gave us much help was Great Britain.  Moreover, there is no way that an “improved Afghan National Security Force” will be combat ready by 2014.

     Therefore, it is foolhardy to keep U.S. forces in this sorry situation for another 31 months.  Already, 1956 American service members have died as a result of Rumsfeld’s quagmire.

     When (if?) Obama is re-elected, plans should be made to withdraw all of our troops by 6/30/13.
