Seriously: Is it time to Nuke Afghanistan?

Incident 1 this week: A man in a western Afghan city has confessed to stabbing his wife to death to prevent her from taking a job outside the home.

Incident 2: A woman was beheaded in the same city for refusing alleged demands by her in-laws to engage in prostitution.

Why the hell are countries like yours and mine spilling blood in the despotic shit hole called Afghanistan?

History shows us the population of Afghanistan are perpetually uncivilised, unstable and dangerous.

The best thing Western Governments can do is to ‘dirty bomb’ the mountains surrounding the place with nuclear waste and create a deadly moat.  

Then patrol the place from the air with a fleet of a thousand drones and obliterate anything that moves.      

The day after Western troops leave it will revert to the 13th Century.

Let’s leave them to it.

Absolutely right; it's not like Afghanistan was, in the mid-20th-century, becoming modern and westernized in its urban centers, introducing modern medical treatment, equal rights, and democracy, until their government was deliberately destabilized, undermined, and destroyed by the U.S. in a combination of paranoia over drugs and a bloody and stupid proxy war with the U.S.S.R.. I mean, it's not like Ronald Reagan was willing to fun any right-wing military group no matter how horrible they might have been, right?

Oh, wait, that's exactly what did happen.

Nevertheless, it's probably in their best interests if we get out ASAP. Maybe offer anyone who wants it (and is willing to be searched very thoroughly) a free ride to the U.S. as we withdraw plus citizenship and a temporary pension, as an apology for screwing them over so long. Let the remaining people do what they want -- let China cope with the nutjobs in the mountains until they run out of ammo.

Oh, and concurrently, break off all relations with Saudi Arabia, which we've treated as our ally all along but which is responsible for funding most of the Islamic terror of the last 50 years. That would help, too.
