    Alexander the Great was able to sugdue the land known today as Afghanistan. The U.S. military, with its superior technology, should be able to accomplish this same objective with relative ease. The problem will be establishing a lasting democratic system of government.

    What a tragedy!

    American success in Afghanistan is the immediate withdrawal of all troops and money spent for troops and support personnel (non-cobat, non-armed servicecpersonnel, [Haliburton]) are offered to Afghanistan people to help rebuild their country.

    God is watching
