The coming Afghan Escalation
The whole "training" thing is complete BS. Even if we were to train all the Afghans that we want, and every one was a loyal afghan and loyal to "Afghanistan" (as if that coherent country existed), the government of Afghanistan cannot afford to pay them.
Are we going to pay for a national army for Afghanistan from now until... When? And how are these soldiers who are being paid by the great western satan going to maintain their credibility?
It's untenable, unworkable, unsustainable.
It's just plain NUTZ!
