Why does it seem lately that Poland is the shining star on the ol’ Continent?
Unfortunately, the troops won’t be available until February. With winter coming on, that might not be such an issue. The bad guys generally hole up during the harsh Afghan winter.
Also, in a surprise move, Kerry Faults Bush’s Afghanistan Strategy.
He claims that Bush is “cutting and running” from Afghanistan. That’s, um, an interesting take. His whole idea for Iraq was, if you remember, to scale back US forces and replace many of them with UN and/or NATO troops. Now a similar strategy (though still with a massive US presence) in Afghanistan is “cutting and running.” Skerry.
