    Afghanistan is the cradle of Slavic Civilization , therefore it's problems and solutions are to be handled by that branch of civilization. The USA stumbled into Afghanistan and has not been able to extract itself because we are looking to the wrong people for solutions. Let the former Warsaw Pact nations contribute to Afghanistan's development and not the American taxpayer. Russia will have some influence their because that's where their bloodline originated, should that be a bother to us,I don't think so
