ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, NOV. 4, 2012 AND THEREAFTER - FILE - In this Feb. 11, 2011 file photo, a man walks through the empty streets of Kandahar, Afghanistan early in the morning. Thousands of Kandaharis are weighing their options with the approaching departure of the U.S. and its coalition partners. Kandahar, Afghanistan's second city, is the southern counterweight to Kabul, the capital. Keeping the city under central government control is critical to preventing the country from breaking apart into warring fiefdoms as it did in the 1990s. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus, File)
