We cannot 'pacify' [Afghans] without massacring all of them.Netop, som en god, gammeldags stedfortræderkrig med Pakistan. Det sparer penge og virker sikkert bedre. Vestliggørelsen af Afghanistan har alligevel lange udsigter, så skidt. Og så kunne man måske også bestikke talebanerne samtidig.
But we really don't need to. Let them grow their opium and make money the traditional way......hard work in an unhospitible environment.
Afghanistan is interesting, but hopeless. My impression when I was there was that it needed a good old fashioned Communist revolution to organize them.
But even that failed.
We don't want training camps there. All we have to do is pay them tribute and the Taliban will never return. The Warlords will make sure of that. And it won't be very expensive.
Bah. Det hele er så åndssvagt alligevel.
