Is the WaPo reporter stupid, or just dumb? So he’s wondering of the Taliban is committed to continue on fighting while the US withdraws.
How about a big fat “YES” dumbo. It is SOP for both Communist and Islamic forces to keep on fighting to the very end of whatever.
Where does the WP get these military/ideological strategy eunuchs as their reporters?
If I had written ignorant crap like this from Vietnam/Cambodia, I would have expected to be fired before I returned.
You always learn the strategy and tactics of “the” enemy (a handful of American reporters didn’t consider the No. Vietnamese/VC as “their” enemy because they were “journalists” and had no specific loyalty to their own country).
Another WaPo disgrace to journalism, the third such example of that type of writing this week (another one concerned discredited charges that Thomas Jefferson had an illegitimate baby by his slave Sally Hemings, and the other concerned a book review about Communist Party leader Angela Davis which totally covered up her early Party involvement).
It just keeps getting worse and worse in the Left media, with no end in sight.
Recently, while watching the TV documentary “Bomb Patrol - Afganistan” I asked myself, “Why the hell are we even in that waste land?” Our troops are not able to fight the enemy unless the enemy fires first. Troops are put into situations where there are high degree of possibile casualties and deaths, major military material losses and the list goes on and on. There is NO WIN there and the Russian’s were smart enough to realize it when the pulled out. The faster we can get out of there the better. That, in itself is something I COULD agree with our gubmit on. Cut our losses and forget it.
