U.S. Announces End of Joint Operations with Afghan Soldiers
Appearing to panic, U.S. announces end of joint operations with Afghan soldiers
In a move that strikes at the heart of the strategy for withdrawing Nato forces from Afghanistan by 2014, the U.S. has announced that it will no longer conduct joint operations with Afghan soldiers. These joint operations are an essential component of the withdrawal strategy, because they're needed to train the Afghan soldiers to defend themselves after Nato leaves. Now they're going to be left on their own without having been properly trained.

The decision may have been made in panic, as none of America's Nato allies were informed of the decision before it was announced. The decision was made in reaction to a series of killings of Nato soldiers by the Afghan partner soldiers they were supposed to be working with and training. It turns out that many of them had joined the Afghan army to await an opportunity to kill Americans and other Nato forces, and then flee back to their Taliban barracks. So far in 2012, 51 Nato soldiers have been killed in this way, 8 of them over the last weekend.

The Obama administration had implemented a "surge" strategy, attempting to emulate President Bush's successful surge strategy in Iran in 2007. However, as I've written many times in the last three years, a Generational Dynamics analysis shows significant generational differences between Iraq and Afghanistan that make it impossible for the same surge strategy to work.

The fundamental difference is that in Iraq's two previous generational crisis wars, Iraqis put aside sectarian (Sunni vs Shia) differences to fight an external enemy. So they had no trouble cooperating to eject another foreign intruder, al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Is there a compelling reason to remain in Afghanistan?

Nope!

Is it just me or should we pull out completely from the middle east?

Yes the US should leave Afghanistan and admit defeat. The Afghan people wore down the USSR and have also worn down the US. Why stay, maybe one of several reasons afraid to admit another Vietnam type ending to all the death,destruction and expense to no avail.

If the US is really in the Middle East to protect oil supplies, then be open about it and station troops at the oil sources and infrastructure to protect it, not roaming around in the mountains of Afghanistan chasing lightly armed men.

The power of the PETRO DOLLAR has been broken so oil purchases will take place in other currencies. Countries might start asking for their gold, that will be a laugh!

I think the other BIG BOYS Russia and China will call the hand of the US, either put-up (fight) or shut-up (retreat) over this Israel -Iran conflict.

We hear that the US has such superior weapons that we could beat China OR Russia very easily. This might be true if the war was fought against only one of the above mentioned two. What about having to fight both Russia and China at the same time? Also if the war against the US was not fought in some other part of the world but brought home to the US. The US would lose a lot of its weapons advantage (nukes on home soil?).

It is time for the present and past American leaders to admit they followed a dumb ass foreign policy for the past 40+ years before the US becomes a burned out, foreign assaulted wasteland.
