RE: “Troop Surge in Afghanistan Ends With Little Fanfare” (TIMES, 9/21/12)

Yes, “gains in Afghanistan are ‘fragile and reversible’,” according to David H. Petraeus, once the commander of that war zone and now CIA head.

The USA is still wallowing in a quagmire and the situation will not be greatly different by December 31, 2014.  Therefore, if Obama wins the election, he should change the withdrawal date to June 30, 2013.  A lot of American lives and much money could be saved by so doing.
