Osama is dead, that was the reason for going there, and the guilty country harboring him was Pakistan. Nothing done about that. To stay there is to win what? For whom? They have been tribal warring for centuries. Outside interest is resource acquisition, not freedom of the people's. And we understand little of that. AS for resource acquisitioning, poppies are not needed, and the rest is up for grabs which no country in centuries has really ever gotten a big chunk of, because of tribal rivalries, religion, and lack of will and resources to go the whole distance..
