    This article starts off with a slam at “Congressional Fact Finding Tours,” something with which I totally agree. These VIPs take up a lot of manpower needed elsewhere and cost far too much of American taxpayers money – learning nothing they can’t already learn from information given to them back in DC.

    And then it goes into an articulate and extremely informative description of just what is going on in Afghanistan and what the future realistically holds in store.

    The chances of an outright win by the Afghan government are slim. The Taliban (catch-all) have too many of the prerequisites to win. Short of a major change of heart on the Pakistani side, that leaves two potential outcomes, the most positive of which is a mixed outcome.

    Oops. That doesn’t exactly fit with what our military and diplomats want us to believe.

    Even though we are in the 21st Century, one cannot escape the truth that the vast majority of Afghanis, Iraqis, and other similar groups have not lifted themselves out of the 10th! Until that changes, rules of Western civilization do not and cannot matter.
