Questions about Afghanistan

Anti-US Feelings Running High as CIA Drones Take a Civilian Toll

The links above take you to a relative wealth of information and perspective about the Obama administration’s current and planned involvement in Afghanistan and Pakistan. My main question is this: are we wise to put more troops into a known swallower of empires and to deploy more killer drones into an unstable, nuclear-armed neighboring country that is already seething with resentment toward us? I’m sure those whose feeble, anxious manhoods are tied into cheerleading any US military adventure think that wisdom is irrelevant and that we should just bomb the darkies into the stone age already. That straw man perspective aside, is this really what we want to dig ourselves into more deeply?
