#1 Black hearts & psychotic minds are not much of a loss.

#2 It's almost funny to see the brain-dead US and western media concepts of "going in the right direction" etc. applied to A'stan. That place is going in any direction?

The insane misunderstanding of civilian casualties is also revealing of the level of information - and common sense - applied to this crucial question. Sounds like it's approaching the Iraqi/Arab level of moral inversion: the bad guys are the ones taking enormous care in trying to eliminate the people who deliberately aim to kill as many innocents as possible.

Keep the lid on, deny use to the enemy. Always was the only sensible strategic objective there. Still is.

#3 You can't help someone if they don't want it. This place will just become a stalemate with pockets of good and bad.

#4 When the "bad guys" are not properly suppressed and the common man (and his boss) are threatened with death they keep a low profile to include answering stupid foreigners questions. Any poll in that situation just reflects the need for that low profile.

See "Deadlier Taliban Network Surfaces" article.

#5 Afghanistan, you've already lost my heart and mind. Let's call it even.
