"one thing that history teaches us about Afghanistan, it is to leave the place alone."
Quite right, Richard. Every PM and US president should have a large plaque on the wall of his office saying, 'Don't go into Afghanistan'. The taleban, after all, do not come from Mars, they are other Afghans, the point being that the country (and the region) is so riven with religious, tribal, political and factional hatreds that no outside intervention has any effect, other than to  rebound in a murderous way on the interveners. We should strengthen our border controls to repel attacks from the death cults that abound in the Middle East, but we should learn the lessons of history and stay out of Afghanistan
