The NATO summit in Chicago, continues to show the inept leadership in action in relation to the Afghanistan fiasco known as Operation: USELESS DIRT.
Our military and political leaders do not understand the dynamics. Unless Pakistan was to be all on-board, the effort has no hope of producing a stable Afghanistan government. And even that possibility is slim. Which with less hope comes the impossibility of having a stable central government in a region that has no concept or zero respect for such an organisation.
Warlords and tribal law trump everything.
The U.S. House just passed an outrageous defense budget. Hopefully it will get shot to pieces. It has extra spending on faulty weapons systems and around $100B on war spending. For a war that has no hope of being won. Especially with our Pakistan supply-chain making a mockery of the whole campaign.
The corruption in Pakistan and Afghanistan is rife.
They can't help it. That is the way they are.
That is the way we should leave them.
Sooner, rather than later.
Continue to wave your taxpayer dollars good-bye.
For no gain.
