|As Bart Simpson once said, "There are no good wars, with the following exceptions: the American Revolution, World War II, and the Star Wars Trilogy." To that I would add the war in Afghanistan. |
OK, maybe not good, but certainly justified. No moral ambiguities or questions about why we got into that war.
Remember 9/11? The folks who did that? That's who we're fighting.
It has been a criminal shame that we have neglected the ongoing conflict with a resurgent Taliban in favor of the President's misadventure in Iraq. So, I was glad to see this: Bush to Increase U.S. Forces in Afghanistan. More troops will actually make a difference in Afghanistan. Hopefully, we can keep from totally screwing up that mission as well.
Fortunately, NATO has the lead...and no one here really cares. So, NATO may actually be able to accomplish something without Bush cronies putting their incompetent fingerprints all over it.
Let's hope so.
