Bring our troops home from Afghanistan now

Finally, our government is getting the message that Afghanistan is not worth another American dying for a corrupt and incompetent regime.
The United States is spending $92 million to build a high-tech command center in Afghanistan so that the generals can link with the troops fighting the Taliban and al-Qaida. Are they serious?
We trained 425,000 police and military personnel in 12 years, plus 100,000 coalition forces, and can’t get a handle to control the enemy forces. (How many do they have?)
We know where the Taliban strongholds are and we still can’t defeat them. Apparently the Taliban and al-Qaida got the cream of the crop because they don’t seem to have a problem recruiting fighters for their cause.
It’s time to leave and bring our forces home.
