And they also come during/after the ruins of war and mayhem have been created. Then they take the children as well to the USA. Afghanistan is left as Karol said above; "in ruin, drug traffic, poverty, anarchy, etc" and also take the last hope Afghanistan has, the afghan childre. Then they Americanize them and/or keep them. Afghanistan is left in poverty, war torn, and with less children little hope for the future.

Evil done in the name of "Christ" or the "American way". Horrible.

You call the children the hope of Afghanistan. That's the only thing you are right about. Thanks to the US, those children now have schools here. Girls are now allowed to attend school. Universities are open. Vocational programs support new enterprise and train existing workers in better methods. Improved grain varieties boost agicultural production, a point hard to underestimate in a country where farming is the primary occupation. Medical aid and social changes have bought maternal and infant mortality rates down from what were once among the highest in the world. We are supporting a govenment that opposes the drug trade while fighting an insurgency whose own propaganda includes the line "our economy: the poppy". The US and other donors have built and maintained thousands of miles of roads here. I'm in Afghanistan right now. I know what we have done and I know what is done by the Taliban. Horrible things happen here every day. ISAF, NATO, and the US are the ones trying to prevent them and helping the people. I'm putting my life on the line here to help people who are hurting and threatened. That's the "American Way" and the Christian thing to do. If you don't like the outlook on the future here I suggest you put the blame where it belongs, on the Taliban, Haqqani, and other criminal organizations that keep killing the innocent people, destroying the infrastructure, and assassinating the Afghans who are trying so hard to build a future for their children.
