The 'good war' in Afghanistan?... It isn't a good war... It isn't an Afghan war... "It is about Pakistan" -Tom Ricks (Ex-WaPo now FP Magazine)

H/t to Marc Lynch, Abu Muqawama

What do I mean by that? First, I find the "good war" term offensive. I find it hard to use that word to describe anything that maims and kills innocent men, women and children. All wars have an element of evil in them. That said, this one was better than most. I thought that invading Afghanistan in late 2001 was the right thing to do, and I still do.

But I wonder what the hell we've been doing since then...
