Time to withdraw completely

Regarding the news of three Americans killed in shooting at a Kabul hospital: It is past time to remove our resources from Afghanistan. They have repeatedly used personnel to infiltrate and assassinate Americans trying to help them. We need to withdraw all personnel, material and assistance and let them do what they have been doing for a 1,000 years and more. We cannot change the tribal mentality and should never have embarked on such a disastrous course. The Russians failed, we have failed, and no amount of American deaths are worth the effort. Withdraw now, remove any and all material from that part of the world and let them have at it. We cannot make a difference and should have never tried. Like the Nike slogan says, “Just Do It! “ All they want is our money!
