Deployed here with the US Army. From the geography, could be Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, etc. It IS a bit warm - and very dry. The combination leads to a lot of dust - thank goodness for air conditioning and good seals on doors, even if we don't have any windows and have concrete barriers around our buildings (including our barracks). The people seem . . . tired. Who can blame them? They've been at war for a good chunk of their existence, and the majority (being under 15) have never known anything else. Most people near where we are have no idea that there's a national government, and those that do have little faith in it. It's going to take a long time for the country to build itself up. What do people here think? Should we stay and try to help Afghans build? Or just get the heck out of Dodge?
