Questions of abandonment

What will the Americans do after the two wars they are fighting? Will they abandon Afghanistan, as they did after the Soviets withdrew, and as they are accused of doing again, now that they are distracted by Iraq? Will they abandon the Kurds again? Will they abandon Pakistan, their useful, if temporary, ally? Will they abandon the people they are supposedly fighting for, like they did when they lost Vietnam? Or the ones they were fighting with? Will it be the same way they abandoned the Moros in the Philippines?
