The new Afghan "security plan"

The Afghan government announced Tuesday that U.S.-led international forces will hand over security responsibility in three provinces to Afghan forces beginning this summer.

"From this July, Afghanistan will take the responsibility over seven locations including three provinces and four cities," President Hamid Karzai said at a graduation ceremony for new army and police officers in Kabul.

According to the plan, Afghan forces will take charge of security in Kabul, Bamiyan and Panjshir this summer.

Why is it considered good news when Afghanistan starts to take partial responsibility for security in parts of Afghanistan?

After almost ten years of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, it's what they should do.

The U.S. military needs to stop being the cops of the world.
