Paging General Stanley
"As strange as it seems, the [US] is fighting a war in Afghanistan, though Afghanistan is on the other side of the world, a landlocked country. Stranger still, American troops must trace their line of supply through territory controlled by enemies or potential enemies. This situation is unprecendented. Only an American general of the present generation would think it acceptable to deploy so many troops into a battle where they could be so easily cut off. Barack Obama ... went on to describe himself as a Christian sprung from generations of Muslims, without realizing the Muslim implications of this stated apostasy. ... Bush could not win over the Muslim world, and neither can President Obama. ... The logic of war is the logic of history. People want to kill you, so you must fight", my emphasis, Jeffrey Nyquist (JN) at Financial Sense, 4 January 2010, link:
It's simple, the UN's existence notwithstanding. I always believed our Afghanistan adventure a waste of blood and treasure. JN has classified information General Stanley does not, i.e., Afghanistan is landlocked.
