The bottom line is clear: Our vital interests in Afghanistan are limited and military victory is not the key to achieving them. On the contrary, waging a lengthy counterinsurgency war in Afghanistan may well do more to aid Taliban recruiting than to dismantle the group, help spread conflict further into Pakistan, unify radical groups that might otherwise be quarreling amongst themselves, threaten the long-term health of the U.S. economy, and prevent the U.S. government from turning its full attention to other pressing problems. -- Afghanistan Study Group

is OK Whisker doesn't have time to post today.
Gotta get ready for the withdrawal
come 12/28 when Whisker retires from the bog.

Thankfully Cervantes promises to keep up the place, if not every day.

Oh my I didn't realize anyone was retiring and this would be the end of the blog for the most part. ;-( It has been very helpful in my keeping abreast of what is happening in the area my husband is (Kabul). Sometimes I am able to tell him news and updates that he did not receive in his morning brief. Thanks for all you do and have done gents!
