4. They're killing us so we'll stay? How stupid do they think we are?

Of course, your friend is absolutely right about the huge number of Afghans who are dependent on US-funded programs that will vanish when we do. We've tried to buy our way to popularity by handing out make-work jobs. Apparently, no one at the Pentagon, State, or USAID bothered to think about what would happen when the money dries up. Just another facet of the gigantic clusterfuck that is our Afghan occupation.
