Afghanistan is NOT Iraq and if our (Educated Politicians) think they are going to push through to Pakistan like they did in Iraq we are going to get eaten alive. We need to send out hunter killer teams in company size elements to root out these militants who are dug in deaper than a wood tick. As far as education, There entire population needs to be schooled to at least the 6th grade reading level. My son is there now and he tells me that it is a shame how these paople are forced to live. And for the idiots who think this is a waste of time a resources how would you like your children to be forced to live like that by a militant force who will kill you at the drop of a pin just to get peoples attention.
