I just read on Twitter: 'U.S. agrees to Afghan aid for 10 more years'. Sure, a few billion more a year, what the heck; The Afghans deserve our tax dollars? Here's an excerpt:

(Newser) – The US and Afghanistan have at last agreed on the broad contours of a strategic partnership agreement outlining their relationship after US troops leave in 2014. In it, the US pledges to continue providing support for the Afghan government for another ten years, the New York Times reports. The exact level of financial aid isn't specified, since Congress must approve that, but the figure being bandied about is $2.7 billion a year, including contributions from other NATO countries.
