How long will the American troop pullout take?

When will we be able to look back at Afghanistan in our rear-view mirror and no longer be involved in the day to day military operations of the provinces?

NATO says it will hand over nationwide control by the end of 2014.

33,000 of America's 100,000 troops will leave by the end of 2012, leaving 67,000 troops in Afghanistan.
