With above historical record, does one expect that U.S. Forces will leave early from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq. The pattern of adventurism suggests that after invading Iraq, the U.S. will go after Iran and Pakistan in that order to have total control over Middle East and OIL in that region (including Central Asian Republics).
