  2. What you should take away from this presentation!•The United States cannot fix Afghanistan.•We cannot undo nearly 40 years of continuousbloodshed, destruction, and occupation ormanipulation by outside powers.•Afghanistan is a country, not a nation. It has fourdistinct national groups in it -- three tied byethnicity and/or religion to one of the countrysneighbors and divided from the fourth by the HinduKush; the fourth being a collection of looselyconfederated tribes.•The best we can do is withdraw our forces withthe publicly stated understanding that how theAfghans govern themselves is their business.•However, if the Afghans harbor anyone – al Qaedaor anyone else who threatens the United States andits allies, we must state clearly we will annihilatethose who threaten us without concern for thewelfare of those Afghans who harbor them.“Damage control,” not “totalvictory,” is the most realisticgoal for U.S. national militarystrategy in Afghanistan.
