What is the current situation?
There was a recent post that garnered a lot of responses on Democratic Underground with a title along the lines of "Do you really know what is going on in Afghanistan?" The poster and several responders felt that they knew what was going on but in many cases their interpretations were mutually exclusive of each other. http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=433x21881
If grassroots Democrats disagree on even what the situation is now, there cannot be any agreement on or support for a course of action. I was even more curious to see the posts on Free Republic if one does a search on Afghanistan on that site. One gets postings like these:
- "Isn't the lesson of Viet Nam to not snatch Defeat from the jaws of Victory?"
