Update from the Forgotten War
By Cassandra D
Remember Afghanistan? Home of the Taliban, shielders of Osama bin Laden? Site of the original "War on Terror"? That war we all agreed on? How's that going?
Not well at all.
Pakistan says we should just admit that we were defeated by the Taliban. Surrender and negotiate, they advise.
Where is the outcry from our politicians and our populace? Where's all the talk about sending the right message to the terrorists? Where's the talk of securing a model democracy for the rest of the region? Do those ideals only apply to Iraq?
Why doesn't anybody seem to care that we are losing this chunk of the War on Terror, too?
