Thank you, Major General Stretton
What am I referring to? READ THIS >>>
I would add that not only is the Afghan Army infiltrated by the Taliban (just as the ARVN was infiltrated by the Viet Cong), but that it is run, in the main, by a bunch of very corrupt warlords whose troops we should _not_ be training at all. We are merely training both sides of what will devolve into a very bloody civil war after we (the invaders) leave.
And about Stretton's claim that we invaded Afghanistan to get bin Laden, well, even on that score I would argue that a full blown war, "regime change", and the ensuing massive "collateral damage" was _not_ the way to go. This was eloquently proven by the events which finally lead to bin Laden's demise in Pakistan. If you can do that in Pakistan, why not do that in Afghanistan?
