Gee, this is a fine kettle of fish...
(CBS News) The strategy for getting U.S. forces out of Afghanistan depends on training Afghan soldiers and police to protect the country themselves, but on Monday the U.S. military suspended most joint field operations with Afghan forces because so many Americans are being killed by the men they are training.
The order effectively suspends "until further notice" most of the operations which U.S. and Afghan troops conduct side by side.
One U.S. official put it simply: "We have got to do a better job at protecting our troops."Yup, "cultural misunderstandings".
U.S. officials say that somewhere between 10 percent and 25 percent of the insider attacks are the work of enemy infiltrators. The rest are the result of personal insults and just plain cultural misunderstandings.
If our endless mission of "training" Afhgan troops is now "suspended until further notice", then why are we going to slog out another 2 years?
Inquiring minds would like to know.
Leave these people to themselves.
Stop the War.
