Obama's retreat does not end Afghan war
Obama's lack of strategic patients to see the war to a real conclusion will make things much worse for the Afghans who will have to continue this struggle with the radical Islamist of the Taliban. He has not been willing to push the enemy into a position where their cause is hopeless. Instead his retreat gives the enemy hope and so the fight will go on.
The official conclusion of the international combat mission in Afghanistan arrived Sunday, but for the Afghans fighting in this remote border district, the symbolic end to America’s 13-year war brought little change.
