Graphic: Troops in Afghanistan – what happens after they leave?

This is a nice graphic from showing the troops still in Afghanistan. The good guys that is, as in the NATO led forces.  Not much point showing the Taliban, warlord troops and Al Qaeda fighters ... they're not going anywhere. We, on the other hand, are slowly pulling out. Canada will be be withdrawing at the end of 2011, although a significant number of training personnel will remain. What happens when all the good guys are all gone? With a corrupt government in place, and a tribal society, I don't believe there is much hope of a good outcome. The Taliban will move right back in to fill the void and the warlords will keep the country carved up as before. All that is missing form the mix is Bin Laden.
