The people who wish to work and earn a decent pay and die without regrets and remorse have no flags nor any missions.

Castro-led revolution
On this day in 1959, facing a popular revolution spearheaded by Fidel Castro's 26th of July Movement, Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista flees the island nation. Amid celebration and chaos in the Cuban capitol of Havana, the U.S. debated how best to deal with the radical Castro and the ominous rumblings of anti-Americanism in Cuba.
The U.S. government had supported Batista, a former soldier and Cuban dictator from 1933 to 1944, who seized power for a second time in a 1952 coup. After Castro and a group of followers, including the South American revolutionary Che Guevara (1928-1967), landed in Cuba to unseat the dictator in December 1956, the U.S. continued to back Batista.

Who cares what happens. As long as those filthy vagabonds don't emigrate to America, let them slaughter one another. They have been doing that for 5000 years.

They will continue to slaughter each other as they have been for thousands of years. Life is cheap in the Middle East.

It will happen nothing. If main source of war, genocide and crime against humanity will leave Afghanistan, it will be rather peace there.
Certainly, these Afghans must have normal pro-Afghan government and must have normal ties with better, stronger countries: China, Iran, Russia.

When you collaborate with an invading power, then you do have to worry, and justly so, when that occupying power leaves. So get ready America they'll be coming here in droves and on the dole.

NATO bases in Afghan.

Afghans are scared because foreign troops are leaving? Sure they are! Karzai even declared that all US and NATO bases will be handed to Afghan forces... The funny thing is that NATO didn't said 'yes' and said something indistinct like that Afghans has no resources to maintain the bases. But I think they simply play for time and negotiate with Taliban about the bases too, thinking over who can spare more, Karzai or Taliban... And while US and NATO command in a brown study they decided to wipe off the bases they are leaving now... Of course Karzai and the rest of Afghans are nervous, they will have no places to hide and no one will protect them from really angry Taliban... US and NATO shot them in the eye...
