timeline for Afghanistan?

http://uk.reuters.com/article/idUKTRE65M2RY20100623?feedType=RSS&feedName=topNews

excerpt:

…General David Richards, who is tipped for possible promotion to overall chief of the British armed forces, told Prospect magazine that the reason Britain had no more than 10,000 troops in Afghanistan was that it could “endure that forever” within the army’s deployable strength of 75,000.

Asked whether U.S. forces could withdraw from Afghanistan quite soon, Richards said: "Well, it depends who you talk to. That is not the official line coming out of the White House or the Pentagon.

“I’m assuming we’ll be involved in Afghanistan for another three to five years, that is the current working assumption at the Ministry of Defence.”
