#3 Just as well. It's good practice for when they're having to fight the Taliban on their own without USAF or USN aircraft on call. Najibullah held it together as long as the Russians funded his expenses. Assuming we do the same for Karzai, he should be able to hold the Taliban at bay, especially given the non-Pashtun population's memory of the horrors of Taliban rule.
