Submission + - Ask Slashdot: When Will Our (US) Own Needs be More Important than Afghanistan's? (ap.org)

ourlovecanlastforeve writes: "AP reports that NATO's big players have settled on a leisurely date of 2014 to stop killing our children, "affirming they will close the largely stalemated conflict at the end of 2014 but keep their troops fighting and dying there for two more years in the meantime." So my question is, at what point does it become important to stop throwing human lives and trillions of dollars at Afghanistan's problems when we can't afford to pay our own bills? Where is the altruism in this proceeding; why are we really wasting all these resources, when there are plenty of other nations that would be grateful for our aide that we could easily throw just as much money we don't have at?"
