Read this quote from today's NYT column by Tom Friedman very carefully

ready...? here goes...
The main reason we are losing in Afghanistan is not because there are too few American soldiers, but because there are not enough Afghans ready to fight and die for the kind of government we want.

absolutely stunning, isn't it...? the kind of government "WE" want...? WE...?? i had to stop and read that twice and then even a third time... the unmitigated gall of someone who could write something like that for one of the world's major newspapers simply bowls me over...
