I think its time to be done with Afghanistan.

Do I think violence will increase when NATO forces leave, yes, perhaps even to to the levle of making Afghanistan a failed state once again.

However its time to admit that more than a decade of Western occupation and unfluence is not going to change a tribal society that has no interest in changing. The only thing Afghan tribes unite for is to attack foreigner. Its time to admit that we can't change their society and leave.
