Monday saw another visit from CENTCOM. Teeheehee. Yip that's right - no comment, no "engagement"; my suggestions fell on deaf ears. Oh well, too bad, tant pis.
Well what can I say? OK now?
Nah, that doesn't quite capture it - how about this then:
When you are waiting in line to be evacuated from the roof of the US embassy in the Green Zone think about what Sun Tzu said about Moral Authority in waging war. Without the moral authority any engagement in war is doomed to failure. Thus the US has already lost in Afghanistan and Iraq because, because as we all know, there is no moral reason as to why the US Military is engaged as it is.
