Watch the movie "12 Strong: The Declassified True Story of the Horse Soldiers" (www.militarytimes.com). The Taliban were evil and they haven't changed. No matter what is promised will be forgotten as soon as Allied forces move out.

Preventing extremists from reoccupying the balance of Afghanistan is mission worth supporting. For 50 years after WW2, US forces remained based in Germany to (first) prevent W. Germany's post-Nazi government from backsliding toward authoritarianism and then later to protect it from Soviet expansionist threats. That long investment of allied military commitment paid off and undoubtedly helped Europe and the world be a safer place.

Why not make the same investment in Central Asia? Why invite the enemy of the Northern Alliance back to power? Why undermine our own accomplishments in this strategic part of the world?

The Complicated Nature of Homicidal Thoughts

One reason is that homicidal fantasies are not uncommon: In 2000, Peter Crabb and associates surveyed 300 undergraduate students and found that 60 percent of the males and 32 percent of the women could describe a recent fantasy about killing someone, most often in response to a relationship breakup or an interpersonal dispute. A 2005 study yielded even more remarkable results, finding that more than 76% of young women and 91% of young men (survey of 977 young adults) reported having at least "one vivid, memorable homicidal thought."
