«QALAT, Afghanistan — U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said Monday that the Afghan war against Taliban guerrillas can never be won militarily and called for efforts to bring the Islamic militia and its supporters into the Afghan government.»
I thought the U.S. wasn’t going to support non-democratic regimes anymore? Shortest policy reversal ever?
Without the Iraq distraction, the US could have rebuilt Afghanistan properly, for less money and acrimony and even had a reasonable chance of catching bin Laden, who’s probably keeping it real in Pakistan.
Apparently, the U.S. can’t “cut and run” in Iraq, but doing so in Afghanistan and even welcoming back into power those people that supported the 9/11 attackers is just fine. Why? Because rooting out terrorists is hard!
Had a Democrat recommended this, Bill O’Reilly or Ann Coulter would have branded him a traitor and called for his deportation.
I officially call on our leaders from both sides of the political aisle to stop sucking so hard this instant!
