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.
Nam started out the same way: liaisons, bombing. Though Powell has his Doctrine, I’m not sure what it is here. 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.]
