Steve and Sandra - I am so the boss of you

Steve says 2011
Hillier says :"Afghanistan's army could need 10 years before it's in a position to fend for itself."
Dave says : "If anyone knows what it takes to train an army, it's Sandra Buckler."
In his non-retraction retraction, Hillier says : "I'm very clear on where the direction comes from. … We're on exactly the same page and I believe actually we see things exactly the same way."
He doesn't scale back to 2011; instead he implies that Harper also knows it will take another decade.
So either the war on Afghanistan is a bad idea and the sooner we get out the better, or the reconstruction is a good idea and we should stay till it's done.
Picking the date 2011 merely fulfills our duty to NATO and has fuck all to do with what's good for Afghanistan.

but none of it has anything to do with what's good for afghanistan - it's all about the neocon disaster capitalism agenda which makes pots of money for THEM and misery for everybody else.

i should have started with saying how much i like your blogs and cartoons but didn't want to sound sucky before saying what i wanted to say.

i've been told i'm a bit abrupt and ornery and am now reaching deep inside for the yin of it all.
