Escape from Afghanistan?-2

I know that war is hell and people loose lives in it and it changes people’s perception of the world. But sometimes war is necessary for what you believe in and to help your friends in their time of need. Another thing is that if you are not ready to go to war, then why you are keeping an Army. Netherlands does not seem to be in any danger of being invaded by another European country and also since it has a nuclear umbrella (provided courtesy of the U.S.), why to keep an army and spending your hard earned income on it, if they are not going to fight anybody.

It is high time now for the European to think about what to do with the Afghanistan war. Do they really have doubts about it and want to exit it with some excuse (and dignity) or are they going to stand with the United States in this war like the U.S. did in World War II (where we did not retreat in the face of casualties but finished the job). They should not hand an effective propaganda to the Taliban that the Europeans chickened out.
