The "Slow Win" of Afghanistan

If people weren't being murdered en masse this kind of thing would be funny.

As it is, it is offensive and sad -- as well as a LIE!!!!

Then again, look at the source.

"Commander sees a 'slow win' in Afghanistan; Urges speedup in approach soon" by Robert Burns, Associated Press | September 6, 2008

"Slow win?"

We have been there for seven years and EVERY YEAR has gotten WORSE!!!

WASHINGTON - US-led forces are achieving a "slow win" in Afghanistan, but the less-than-decisive approach must be accelerated soon, a key American commander there said yesterday.

Major General Jeffrey J. Schloesser, in a video conference with reporters at the Pentagon, said he remains hopeful that the Bush administration will send him more combat troops and other resources by winter.

(Blog author just shaking his head at the scale of audacious lying; it's indescribable)

The current approach, he said, is making headway, but not at a rate that he considers satisfactory.

You read something like that, and all I can think of is the civilians we've slaughtered in just the last week!!

Here's a look at two of them:

"It's not the way that I think . . . the Afghans, the international community and the American people would like to see us conduct this war," Schloesser said.

Well, I can't disagree with him there.

How about LEAVING and STOP SLAUGHTERING INNOCENTS because 9/11 was an INSIDE JOB!!!!
