And that’s assuming Obama and the Democrats succeed in convincing the regime to “invite” the SOCOM to stay.

If they all pack up and go next year as promised, well:

“The report predicts that Afghanistan would likely descend into chaos quickly if Washington and Kabul don’t sign a security pact that would keep an international military contingent there beyond 2014 ”” a precondition for the delivery of billions of dollars in aid that the United States and its allies have pledged to spend in Afghanistan over the coming years.”

Whatever happened to “changing entire societies” by “clearing, holding and building” a “government in a box” and killing “amazing numbers” of people?

Don’t tell me it was all just a bunch of bullshit.
