Michael Yon has some interesting comments regarding the war in Afghanistan …
It is clear that this war will end poorly. Time to cut losses.
Our continued losses in Afghanistan are for nothing. We should continue with a smaller presence to harass and kill terrorists, and losses from that are expected and part of the fight. But the ongoing larger war is going nowhere. We have been there since 2001. This is 2012. There is no vaguely discernible end. We should look at Afghanistan as a century-long project, to be put on a far backburner. The United States has problems to deal with at home.
