Daniel 2:20,21 – Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: [21] And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
Daniel 12:4 = But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Afghanistan – Graveyard of Empires
July 27, 2007
On Jan. 1, 1842, the British garrison in Kabul began to withdraw. Just three years earlier Britain had occupied Kabul, a strategic point for the defense of India, but could no longer endure the incessant killing of its senior officials and officers. During the withdrawal, a long procession of 4,000 troops and 10,000 civilians crossing snow-covered valleys and hills was ambushed by Afghan warriors. Fewer than 40 survivors reached the destination of Jalalabad.
Following this humiliating and bloody retreat, Britain again attacked Afghanistan in 1878. This time it was to contain Russia, which had expanded its influence into Afghanistan’s northern areas while Britain withdrew. After several fierce battles, Britain occupied Afghanistan again. And again the occupiers were slaughtered, recalling the nightmare of 40 years previous. Britain withdrew most of its forces from Afghanistan in 1880, but maintained control of its diplomatic rights. After another war in 1919, Britain finally ceded Afghanistan self-determination in foreign affairs.
Located at the heart of Eurasia, Afghanistan has been a crossroads between East-West trade and human exchange since ancient times. The Persian Empire under Alexander the Great invaded the region, followed in succession by the Mongols and Mughal Empire. In the 19th century, Afghanistan was the center stage of a struggle for supremacy between the British and Russian empires. Foreign troops always sustained high casualties on account of the strong resentment of local fighters and the inhospitable geography of rugged mountains and arid deserts.
Afghanistan was dubbed “the graveyard of empires,” and it lived up to that nickname again during the 10-year invasion and occupation by the Soviet Union beginning in 1979. To support the People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan which seized power in a 1978 coup, the Soviets stationed 100,000 troops in the country. After long and bloody resistance from U.S.-backed anti-government Mujahideen, or “freedom fighters”, the Soviet Union withdrew. Their sacrifice was 14,453 dead and 53,753 wounded. The disaster precipitated the collapse of the Soviet empire.
The Taliban, a group of Islamic fundamentalists that seized power in 1996, was deprived of power when it offered bases to Al Qaeda, masterminds of the Sept. 11 attacks, and was subsequently attacked by U.S. forces. The Taliban, in an apparent attempt to continue Afghanistan’s long tradition of confounding foreign powers, has ceaselessly attacked foreign troops and kidnapped foreigners. Now the Taliban has kidnapped a large group of Korean volunteers, and executed one of them. They are sacrificing Korean volunteers who went to Afghanistan in order to treat Afghans suffering the ravages of war and teach them so that they may rebuild their country. Even few Afghans would regard such barbarity as a part of their struggle against foreign forces.
Obama Announces Afghanistan Withdrawal Plan
President Barack Obama says 9,800 U.S. troops will remain in Afghanistan after this year, but all could be withdrawn if Afghan leaders do not sign a joint security agreement.
The president laid out his plans Tuesday for withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan and bringing America’s longest war to what he called a “responsible end.” He told reporters in the White House Rose Garden that this is the year the United States will conclude its combat mission in Afghanistan and hand over security responsibility to Afghan forces.
“At the beginning of 2015, we will have approximately 9,800 U.S. service members in different parts of the country, together with our NATO allies and other partners. By the end of 2015, we will have reduced that presence by roughly half.”
Obama said U.S. troops at that point will work only in Kabul and at Bagram air base, near the Afghan capital. By the end of 2016, he said, U.S. forces will be withdrawn with only a normal embassy presence remaining — similar to that left in Iraq, where Obama withdrew troops in 2011.
There are about 32,000 troops left in Afghanistan. Those who remain will continue training Afghan forces and support counter-terrorism operations.
The U.S. sent forces into Afghanistan in 2001 to oust the governing Taliban, which had harbored al-Qaeda — the group responsible for the September 11 attacks in the United States.
“I think Americans have learned that it’s harder to end wars than it is to begin them. Yet this is how wars end in the 21st century. Not through signing ceremonies, but through decisive blows against our adversaries, transitions to elected governments, security forces who are trained to take the lead and ultimately full responsibility,” said Obama.
The drawdown plan has drawn criticism from some members of Congress. The head of the House Armed Services Committee, Buck McKeon, said Obama is putting poll numbers over security, called the timeline arbitrary and suggested the plan leaves Afghanistan vulnerable to the kind of chaos that has plagued Iraq since U.S. troops departed.
The president still may order a full withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan this year, if the new Afghan leadership does not sign the bilateral security agreement.
Senior administration officials say the fact that both run-off candidates in Afghanistan’s presidential elections have pledged to sign the agreement gave Obama confidence to announce the withdrawal plan on Tuesday.
The announcement came a day before the U.S. leader delivers a speech in which he will outline the direction of U.S. foreign policy after the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
