This iReport is part of an assignment:
Clearing a Hornet's nest.
** See both photos.
A family has trouble with Hornets. Every time they go outside one of them gets stung.
A large nest was found and each of the four family members was given a flyswatter and told to kill as many as possible, far from the nest so as not to rile the rest.
Over a period of time they learned that as they killed them off more showed up and the nest grew larger.
A neighbor noticed this and said, "Why don't you just wait until the all get in the nest, settle down for the night, and kill the whole bunch at once?"
The Taliban are a nest of Hornets. We destroyed most of the nest once. Now they're back and we've sent in people with flyswatters trying to kill them individually. It is not going to work. Let them take over again. As soon as they get nested and feel secure, blow them up.
We can't prevent these people from taking over if the people living there do not help drive them out. We drove them out once and didn't lose a lot of American lives doing it. Now we have a large force in Afghanistan, just like the Russians did, and the Taliban are picking our soldiers off every day.
I say pull our troops out. If the Taliban take over again then wait until they get themselves all set up and send some more bombers over their strongholds and get thousands at once. We lose no people and they lose a lot.
