The Afghan government is demanding that US Special Forces leave Wardak province immediately. Apparently accusations that Afghan troops working with the US Special Forces are torturing Afghan captives and civilians are behind these actions. The demand has caught NATO forces off guard but are one more indication of the growing resentment of continued foreign activities in and occupation of Afghan territories.
There is no reason to wait until 2014. Let’s just quietly and quickly and as safely as possible withdraw all American and NATO forces from Afghanistan. Nothing will happen there if we leave now that won’t happen after 2014. Why continue to put American lives at risk for 18 more months?
Updated: Changed spelling from Warduck (as originally listed on Yahoo) to Wardak…the correct spelling of the provincial name.
