    For centuries other countries have looked to conquer Afghanistan and few have been successful. While the Americans may have good reason to invade the country, the inhabitants are used to living under difficult conditions and have become nearly professional warriors. The sooner we leave the country, the better. That being said, the government is corrupt and people are ill educated. Women are abused and mistreated. There is little profitable work but warfare. This makes for a frightening prospect.
