Should the United States withdraw troops from Afghanistan?

Con

the United States should not be in afghanistan in the first place. we cause more of a problem by invading the country. we are now in even more dept as a country in all and our economy is already bad enough. There are also the lives of young americans at risk. The united States is also in a need for troops so bad that we have to pull them from other countries we invaded.

another reason to be there is that we ve essentially ripped apart the old government (failed one already) since we ve been there; leaving Afgan would not give freedom to the people or solve the issues of violence there so it is our moral obligation, as the people who started this conflict, to see it through to the end.

we are there because allowing the Taliban and al queda to run rampant is a national security risk so we are out there to protect american lives. Your argument, bobthebluefish is ignorant of the cost of withdrawel and what we have to lose. I'm not saying i support our foreign policy in Afgan, I'm just answering ur question.
