I also hate to see the sacrifices made, made in vain when we pull out and it gets worse like Iraq did. But if we aren't going to go full **** **** mode then I don't think its worth any more service members lives.

Afghanistan has vast deposits of important rare earth minerals and other metals that can be easily mined if they weren't located in a war zone. If we can stabilize the region and get mining activities started, the payoff could be huge.
