    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
    An’ go to your Gawd like a soldier.
    Go, go, go like a soldier,
    Go, go, go like a soldier,
    Go, go, go like a soldier,
    So-oldier ~of~ the Queen!

    – Rudyard Kipling, The Young British Soldier

    And some of our leaders think that a continued U.S. presence there will somehow mollify the situation? For what good purpose? Let these people be. For all our military prowess, we cannot overcome the primitive, backward customs and thought of a stone-age society.

    Leave them be.

    “What will Afghanistan look like when America leaves?”

    Why should we care?
