Afghanistan: Memo to the White House

Here is what I would like to see:

1) Only 1000 advisers in the field

2) All other U.S. soldiers based at Bagram Air Base (BAB)

3) Unmanned drones and air-strikes flown from BAB and offshore in the Arabian Sea

That is it. Nothing else. The Afghanistan government is just using the U.S. as an ATM cash dispenser. Like a crack addict, they want our money, and they laugh at us behind closed doors.

Take that $35 billion it would take to add 35k troops (estimated to be $1 million per-soldier per-year) and give loans, tax credits, and grants to small businesses instead.

Reduce, not expand our presence in Afghanistan.
