The United States has military forces in Afghanistan to fight terrorism. The Affirmative case argues that further military efforts in Afghanistan are futile, the war is unwinnable, fueling corruption in the Afghan government, and withdrawal would save money and lives. Negative will argue that withdrawing our forces would lead to a much worse future. The Status Quo is effectively fighting terrorism there, and if corruption is a problem, US presence is the best way to fight it. There would be a resurgent Taliban with increased terrorism, human rights would be threatened, and America would lose its honor by withdrawing.
