      Anthony Hoh gave a good interview on NPR last week explaining his differences to the war.

      I’ve known other Muslims who joined the U.S. military. I hope more Muslims realize there’s little benefit and a lot of trouble associated with joining the military.

      There’s no conscription in America, so no excuse to go. If you wanna protect America become a cop or fireman or something.

      U.S. leaving Afghanistan will not lead to any fantasy peace there.

      It will only remove ONE factor of the fighting and instability.
      The “Taliban” fighting the US are only one splinter group among many and them laying down their arms doesn’t mean the fighting won’t continue.

      Everyone and their momma knows that Pakistan is fueling a non-US related insurgency there as well, for it’s own interests ,and that will continue even after the US has left. This time however, Pakistan and it’s Taliban allies are known, unlike in 1996, and re-armed nationalist minded Afghans will not simply lay down their arms and allow them to extend their rule…so the fighting will continue, especially because Iran and the Central Asian states are not keen on re-establishment of a Pakistani puppet regime.

      A real settlement in Afghanistan does not require only the US to leave. It requires Pakistan to accept the fact that Afghanistan is not it’s fifth province to do with as it wishes. That in turn means a wider regional settlement wherein Pakistans regional concerns vis a vis India must be settled and at the same time convincing nationalist Afghan leaders to accept the Durand line border as official and stop supporting Pashtun nationalism.

      Lastly within Afghanistan itself, Kabul should stop trying to impose a centralized government. It’s never worked and will never work. Politics and life in general is extremely local in that country, and Kabul must accept that reality and settle for a federalized regional government structure.

      There are plenty of reasons that area of the world is an unstable disaster, and the US leaving will not magically solve anything…
