Zaphod's Heads on Kennedy on Afghanistan

Couldn't have said it better myself.

He applauds Gerard Kennedy's "change the mission or end the mission" message, and so do I.

It's a quagmire, baby. It's a quagmire.

BigCityLib,

Please excuse my unfamilitarity with your blog. I have a couple questions.

Why do you think that Afghanistan is a quagmire?

And do you not think that once the international community approved the mission it had a continued responsibility not to leave the country in worse shape?

Afghanistan is a quagmire because an endless stream of Taliban pour in across the border from Pakistan to replace any of those we kill. There are no serious plans to stop that.

As for our responsibility, we've been their about five years now. I am not willing to accept a responsibility in perpetuity.
