Well, Rummy sez our boys are in there now. Hell, we have to be sure that we’ve had liaisons on the ground for some time.

To solve the problem of terrorists using Afghanistan as a home for training, a secular government that respects all groups in the country must be installed. We have to ask ourselves: are we in the business of nation-building? To be honest, I think we have to be.

If you wish to discuss this, head over to Perp.net. [I’ll be honest: I meant to post this there, and I messed up and put it here. 🙂 But I decided that, rather than closing it, I could leave it as cross-promotion.]
