We can't afford Afghanistan...

I have suggested the idea for a long time, but the combined sport of war, nation building and game of influence seems now over for the United States. With two major concerns like funding retirement and health care for its aging baby-boomers, our nation can't no longer afford maintaining its presence in Iraq and Afghanistan. Defense should revert to being purely defensive and good intelligence and special commandos should focus on thwarting terrorist attacks, unless of course,
we finally decide to be serious with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and really push to get it resolved. Colonial wars is no longer an affordable option for the United States of America.
