Here are a few items that show the idiocy of the mission.
Last November, an Afghan soldier killed six Americans, while an Afghan policeman killed five British soldiers. In March, an Afghan soldier killed three British Army Gurkhas, while an Afghan pilot killed eight US Air Force members. In May, an Afghan soldier killed an Australian, in October an Afghan sergeant killed three Australians, and this month an Afghan soldier wounded three Australians.
And then there is the quality of the Afghan security forces.
ISAF concerns about Afghan troops include their poor hygiene, poor discipline, inefficiency, treachery, thieving, unreliability, illiteracy, technical incompetence, corruption, unwillingness to learn, poor treatment of animals and drug taking.
