We feel compelled to be there yet other than it being a piece ground which seems to attract the terrorists of the world as a haven, it has no siginficant value in the future of the USA. We certainly have to stay after terrorism and terrorist therefore our stay there will proably be a very long one. I really do not see the so-called "moderate Taliban" having any real impact in that regard. WB
