Josh Mull talks about the Afghanistan strategy review, the third of Obama’s Administration, where the withdrawal date got moved forward from 2014 to June 2011. This could indicate the elites now understand the war is no longer winnable, even as we carpet bomb that country and destroy villages to save them. Shades of Vietnam and Gen. Wastemoreland.
Josh was in Afghanistan for ten days recently as a vote observer and is highly knowlegeable about the Afghanistan War and its political ramifications, so I let him talk, mainly tossing out questions. Next week I’ll have lots to say! Heh.
Steve Hynd of Newshoggers, our third member, had a cold and will be back next week.
