US troop surge met in Afghanistan with cynicism and conspiracy theories

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/dec/02/us-troop-surge-afghanistan-response

There has been alot of negative talk about the U.S. influence in Afghanistan lately. Especially since President Obama just announced that the U.S. will be sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan soon. The negative talk is not from Americans however but the locals in Afghanistan who believe the U.S. has only made things worse. Some people believe that the suicide bombings and explosions did not begin until the U.S. was present in Afghanistan.

Obama has said that U.S. troops will start coming home in the next year and a half. But he has also stated the the U.S. will not leave Afghanistan until the it can effectively handle itself. The U.S. is currently in the process of training police so that they can strengthen the power of the police in Afghanistan.

Even though the people have been talking very negatively about the U.S. there was noone ready to say that they wanted the U.S. to leave. The people do not want us gone until they know that they can take care of themselves.

Now what do you think about this? Do you think our presence in Afghanistan is affecting them in a positive or negative way?
