Three cheers for the internet press leak over the consistent failure of the USA UK Military campaign in Afghanistan.
The only threat to the lives of our troops is our Government putting them into a war that no occupier has ever won.
Every lesson of history has shown that any outside power propping up a government in Afghanistan only undermines the credibility of that very government in the eyes of the Afghan people.
We can not and should not try and impose our culture and politics on an alien culture.
We should have never have gone in and the sooner we grasp the reality and pull out the better.

Schmitt said Saturday the new batch of classified documents the website is preparing to release will contribute to the public's understanding of the war. An online whistle-blower's threat to release more classified Pentagon and State Department documents is raising hard questions of what the U.S. government can or would do, legally, technically or even militarily to stop it. - AP Photo
