It's beyond time to reset our methods of being there. No more U.S. Generals protecting their retirement by brown nosing Obama supporting his idiot policies which Bryen well describes. Better they should resign their commissions and serve as dirty booted grunts rather than agree to conditions that kill no Generals. The continued practice of exposing our troops to Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) while the Generals avoid the danger is reminiscent of WWI trench warfare that killed tens of thousands of doughboys per DAY in France without a concern by inbred general officers. I did 6 years active Korean war era duty which action echoed the same gross malfeasance. We could set up massively fortified green zones out of which drone warfare could be safely conducted to protect local assets who otherwise would be exterminated by al-Quaeda or Taliban. Let Afghan military, now well trained by U.N. trainors, protect the general population. Or stop complaining about U.S. casualties, they are all volunteers, anyway. Getting out immediately would sacrifice all those who trusted our early promises and cooperated openly. Remember Saigon and Cambodia.
