    and finally picked it up last night. Woodward doesn't pull any punches about how we've come to where we are in Afghanistan. The behind the scenes wrangling with all of the different agencies fighting their turf wars, the genuine agony of what to do in Afghanistan, the shitty options (there are NO good options--NONE) presented, and the background of how badly it was run, from the get go by Bush, is fascinating to read. But depressing.

    I can just about forgive the Brits for starting our revolutionary war and burning DC to the ground during the war of 1812 for giving us Led Zeppelin.

      Escalating there was INSANE.

      What can America do There that everyone else has failed to do? The Pathans as good as invented warfare.

      Libya ought to be a replay of the Italians v 8th Army.  

      A Catholic, Jew, Muslim and Buddhist walk into Al Aqsa Mosque. Buddhist immediately exclaims: "excuse me I appear to be in the wrong joke."
