In a press conference yesterday, president Obama announced that he has plans to 'Maybe leave Afghanistan someday.'. American troops have been in Afghanistan for over ten years, and the region is as unstable as ever. Obama plans to withdraw from Afghanistan by 2014, unless it is necessary to stay longer, which looks increasingly likely. America will withdraw from Afghanistan when the Afghan military is capable of fighting the Taliban on its own. However, after this year's surge of attacks on Americans by Afghan troops, some wonder if the Taliban are the ones who the Afghan army wants to fight. Many experts believed that America would have a military presence in Afghanistan until the sun goes out in approximately 5 Billion Years, but Obama's announcement of a 'Someday' withdrawal date has some experts daring to hope that America will leave by 2143. "It's still a while", one expert quipped, "but it's a huge improvement on before.".
