It’s time to leave. These are never ending wars and cost us lives and money. We aren’t keeps of the world, let NATO handle these **** holes.
Short list-----Turks, Mongols, England (twice), Russia and now the US---- all but the last figured out that Afghanistan was a lost cause and pulled out. Past time to leave.

Alexander the great conqured Afghanistan, but he used different rules of engagement.
Not sure I would say Alexander conquered Afghanistan---he headed that way in 330 BC and was dead in Babylon 7 years later.
His campaign did have a lasting effect from the hundreds of thousands of Greek and Macedonian soldiers he left there.

Interesting quote:

"The type of guerilla-style fighting that Alexander faced during the Afghan campaign was described centuries
later by the chronicler Plutarch, who compared Afghan tribesmen to a hydra-headed monster: as soon as
Alexander cut off one head, three more would grow back in its place."

Those people have been fighting among themselves since the word started to rotate, let us get out of there and allow them to kill themselves, after all, that is the only behavior they know, and in top of that, is what their religion teaches.
