Pentagon: Afghanistan Military Strategy Unsuccessful

Click to Read

Pentagon: Afghanistan Military Strategy Unsuccessful Improved security in Iraq will give the US military flexibility to do more in Afghanistan in coming months, Defense Secretary Robert Gates told Congress Wednesday, after years of setting a lower priority for the Afghan fight. But even as Gates hinted at possible further troop cuts in Iraq, he said a go-slow approach is justified by several worrisome circumstances, including slow progress on the political front. "I worry that the great progress our troops and the Iraqis have made has the potential to override a measure of caution born of uncertainty."

You're right Jude, hindsight is 20/20. We can say we shoulda or shouldn't have all night.

Agreed, always! Afghanistan SHOULD have stayed our 1st priority because it was actually connected to the war on terror and isn't the point of all these troop deployments to fight terrorists?

I know hindsight is 20/20, but, you know, if only we had consistently made Afghanistan our #1 priority, instead of stretching ourselves thin fighting in Iraq as well...
