Stanley McChrystal's Long War

By M. Wizard

Worse yet, for all of America's time in Afghanistan — for all the money and all the blood — the lack of accomplishment is manifest wherever you go. In Garmsir, there is nothing remotely resembling a modern state that could take over if America and its NATO allies left. Tour the country with a general, and you will see very quickly how vast and forbidding this country is and how paltry the effort has been.

Submitters Bio:

I am an aspiring mystic with a bit of experience in sales/marketing, currently living in the New York metro area with my books, candles & more books. I believe we, as a civilization, have reached the low ebb of an entire cycle (see "Hindu Yugas" & Italian Philosopher Giambittista Vico), and are due to bounce back, any minute, with the assistance of a host of gods & goddesses (some of whom I know personally...).
