    Hopefully we won't see a resurgence of Isis or Al Qaeda in the region.

    Personally I doubt everyone was pulled out and the remaining military personnel are going to be there for the foreseeable future.

    I am happy for all the families in America who have a Father, Mother, Brother or Sister who has been and still are a soldier in Afganistan now will get them back to their home. I wish those who are still in Afghanistan until 11 september to be safe.

    I wish the situation there was better but after 20 years calling a withdrawal premature as some are doing rings hollow in my ears.

    I'm pretty sure there will be retention forces there to monitor the situation.

    Probably since it appears there's an agreement with some of our allies to support them in their effort to try and thwart any Taliban resurgence.

    Needless to say, it's a real tricky Catch-22 situation.

    Right, I don't think we will ever really leave but this is a good step.

    And call me crazy but I have a feeling agencies like the CIA do want they want, at least to some degree, regardless of what the current President says...
