  • Which Way did the Taliban Go?

    a very interesting article about the ANA on their lonesome.

    i recall there were similar articles and discussions on the state of the Iraqi army circa 2007. if anything, the ANA is considerably less equipped than their Iraqi counterpart. but the linchpin is not their equipment but their leadership, particularly their political leadership.
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov
