...was just interviewed on fox news. Q: What kind of challenge would afghanistan be to our military? A: none whatsoever. Alrighty then. We team up with the russians and attack from the north. Israel attacks from the west. We meet at the Euphrates. Its a win win win all the way around.

This is a pipe dream. But a very nice one. We really do need to get together with the Russians. We have far more in common...

absolutely. i had the considerable privilege recently of speaking with several Americans who are working in Russia to get some joint ventures going. Russia has a lot of problems, but a lot of potential as well. to a growing extent our interests are parallel.

Be careful here... The Russians couldn't kick the Afghan's asses in a day, so we probably can't either, even with our "terrible resolve."

The Russians attempted to pacify. We are going to KILL. Total War would leave no one alive to resist.

... Afganistan is a shithole. Geographically it almost perfectly lends itself as a guerrilla hideout. Mostly rugged, arid mountains. Remember, we tried to dispatch Bin Laden there with ALCM's and weren't successful then.
