Default Worth reading...

In case anyone here didn't look at the Journal and missed this concise, coherent recommendation on Afghanistan strategy, I highly recommend it:
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary”

I really enjoyed that piece, and the commentary that followed. Thanks for the catch.

Interesting article. Wonder how the recent events will shape the strategy. Could the timeline for withdrawal be accelerated even more so with the recent PR black eyes and rogue Soldier?
