Obama Afghan strategy eight years too late

Posted in Afghanistan by Deputy city editor on January 5, 2010

The slough of despond

Afghanistan is a fail. Obama and his lickspittle (G. Brown) are digging deeper, pouring oil on the flames.

What will it take to admit that we have lost? Must there be pictures of helicopters evacuating the chancery staff off the roof of the American embassy?

Afghanistan is where empires go to die. After Greeks, Indians, Persians, Mongolians, British and Russians have all been defeated here, it is the turn of the Americans. If history does not exactly repeat itself, at least it often rhymes.
