I am betting it will be the Taliban who ultimately, and unfortunately, prevail.
as the saying goes England Prevails! , We will eventually get it sorted, all we need to do is say we are going to leave once the taliban and militiant forces stop attacking and fund the new goverment and occasionally check and keep a few "advisors" around, In my opinion its the only way it is going to work. We cant beat these cowards using warfare no matter how good we are. I guess im trying to say It comes down to diplomacy on who is going to "win"
Really we did'nt prevail the last tried it on in Afghanistan in the 1800's we got hammered except for one man they left alive or don't you know your history Cal and at the time we had the Empire and controlled most of the world.
Same story with the Russians and they had unlimited manpower.
Can't see us winning this time either and thats not being pro Taliban wnaker .......just realistic
To quote Garth Ennis:
"As I packed, I thought about the place. About what the British learned on the North West Frontier, and the Russians learned a century after them.
You go to war in Afghanistan...and everybody dies."
