Enough is enough. Stop trying to establish democratic principles in a nation that is still mired in 7th century tribalism and whose people will not help themselves.

From the UK Telegraph:
'I waited until they took off their body armor off... and then I shot them dead:' Chilling account of 'green on blue' attack by Afghan who killed two U.S. soldiersSpray their poppy fields with Agent Orange and let them fight over the rubble. Let them use their athletic arenas as killing fields, it's their stinking country, let them rot in it.
An Afghan man has confessed to shooting dead two American soldiers who were training him as a police officer in an attack which took place three years ago.
In a chilling and candid account, the unidentified man said he had waited until Sergeant Aaron Smith and Private First Class Brandon Owens had taken off their body armour before calmly gunning them down in Wardak Province, central Afghanistan.
His confession comes just a day after four American soldiers were gunned down by Afghan police at a checkpoint in a similar incident. The latest in a spate of so-called green-on-blue attacks.
Two British troops were also killed at a checkpoint at a different base in the south of the country on Sunday.
