Demand an Exit Strategy from Afghanistan
Robert Naiman makes the case for withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Afghanistan has become a quagmire for the United States and its allies. U.S. strategy consists of an open-ended military commitment without any clear, practical goals. Troop escalation and an increase in offensive combat missions has only resulted in a deteriorating situation on the ground . Yet, there is talk of further escalating troop levels in Afghanistan.
Increasing U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan is unlikely to ameliorate the situation. In fact, there is reasonable evidence to suggest that the presence of foreign forces is one of the key factors driving the insurgency. 
We need a new strategy in Afghanistan that does not require an open-ended military commitment. We need a plan for removing our troops. We need an exit strategy from Afghanistan.
The Afghan people are tired of war. A majority of Americans now oppose the war in Afghanistan. The U.S. must have an exit strategy from Afghanistan.
