Hey, let me ask you this... do you think if we help one insurgent and his family, do you think he might change the path he is on? It worked in Iraq and many areas here in Afghanistan. They are fighting against the bad guys. The bad guys are those who hang a 9 year old boy because his father went to an American base for medical aid.. nice huh? I want this area to clean up so we can get out of here. Like ole rattlecattle says, this war is costing too much money.. well he doesnt say it like that but thats the point. I want to use American money for more productive projects... like anything within our borders.

A couple of nukes would cost WAY less.

We could just use some of the old ones instead of scrapping them. Even if they only have 1/2 the yield they used to have, that should still light up them poppy fields.
