Our Afghanistan Dilemma

This piece by Stephen Walt in "Foreign Policy" makes more sense to me than most of what is being written about Afghanistan.  Damned if you Do, Damned if you don't

(last paragraph)
With respect to Afghanistan: it is either a worth a prolonged and costly investment of lives and money or it isn't. Either we go all in -- which in my view is still a very bad idea -- or we should get out. Trying to split the difference on this issue is not leadership; in fact, it is a recipe for failure
