Winning in Afghanistan

We can’t win in Afghanistan and should stop trying. The Afghans have been defeating foreign invaders since Alexander the Great, 2300 years ago, and we are not going to change that. The only way to defeat the Afghans is to kill them all and that would be genocide. The Chinese have occupied Tibet and pacified the population by colonizing the country. We could invite the Chinese or the Israelis to colonize Afghanistan. The Chinese are numerous enough and the Israelis are tough enough to do the job. I doubt that many Americans would be willing to settle in Afghanistan.
