It’s never over ‘til it’s over


In the midst of the economic mess, Dear Gentle Reader(s), we begin to have an eerie sense of deja-vu—all over again.

Over in Afghanistan the Taliban is on the move and in charge of several key areas of that poor country.  Therefore, we have the specter of imminent increase of America’s military involvement in that area’s struggle against Islamic thugs.

Hie thee to US Centcom for the latest.  (Note, too, the near gallows humor in the title:  “Afghanistan troop buildup a ‘delicate endeavor.’

Get ready for another couple of years of “Light at the end of the tunnel” and “In six months” and “additional troops.”

Trust, but verify.
