The money quote and the last sentence of this piece from Tomgram reads..."Whatever the Obama administration does in Afghanistan and Pakistan, however, the American ability to mount a sustained operation of this size in one of the most difficult places on the planet, when it can’t even mount a reasonable jobs program at home, remains a strange wonder of the world".
After reading this kind of stuff you really begin to wonder why one should even bother thinking, caring or being informed about anything. It's a quitters paradise. Sigh.
