Hi guys!

Great pod as always.
I'm curious as to what you say about the right-wing comment about our "mission" in Afghanistan that states that we need to continue the war in order to prop up Pakistan. Apparently that country is "unstable," and if we weren't in Afghanistan, trying to make a semi-stable democracy there, Pakistan would fall and the Taliban would have a stranglehold on both Pakistan (which has nuclear weapons) and Afghanistan.

Also, you haven't touched on the subject of drone attacks and their ethical and political implications.

Personally I'm not convinced that drone attacks, while taking out key Taliban and perhaps Al-Qaeda leaders, don't just create more terrorists in the form of people who hate the U.S. for our brutality.

I can't ignore the right-wing (see Sara Palin's recent foreign policy review - from her perch atop Alaska's crow's nest! lol) view that Afghanistan falling into Taliban control after we leave prematurely is a really bad thing for us.
Cheers and thanks again!

David
