American Decade-Long Failure in Afghanistan

Is there still a war going on - 1500 have been killed since 2009 - someone should tell the Commander - in chief. Oh - you say last time someone mentioned it they got their butt chewed out for messing up his golf game. Funny the hated George Bush talked about our men dying and their sacrifices almost every week and gave up golf for 6 years in deference to our troops.

If Bush really had wanted to show deference to our troops he never would have sent them into Iraq. Had he followed this course of action he could have played as much golf as he wished as far as I'm concern.

Afghanistan: Special comment: This week Coalition forces commander General Allen said that only ten of Afghanistan's now 405 districts, in 34 provinces, are responsible for half of the violence in Afghanistan.

They are Sangin, Nowzad, Musa Qala, Kajaki, Nad e Ali, Nahr e Sarraj in Sangin Province plus Pol-e-Alam in Lowgar Province and Maiwand, Panjwai and Zherai in Kandahar Province.

Allen's list is not a metric of progress....
