Still too Optimistic

At last a NATO commander admits that the War in Afghanistan can’t be won. Of course he thinks that they can reduce the level of insurgency down to where the Afghan army can handle it. Fat chance of that since the Afghan army is for the most part composed of the militias that the Taliban had beaten in the first Afghan civil war. Still it’s a step in the right direction. Now if only Obama and McCain are listening.
