No man is an island

Write a comment Afghans wanting to be left alone to live their lives is understandable. I wouldn't want foreign soldiers dropping in unannounced and scaring my family. But the Taliban and local warlords are using that sentiment to their advantage and roaming the countryside at will since our troops can't be everywhere at once. Which means sooner or later the bucolic Afghans will have to realize they need to unite and get involved or they'll never get rid of foreigners - Taliban or ISAF. Their current attitude reinforces Gen. Kiernan's words about military power not being enough to stabilize Afghanistan.
