Afghan mission, ahem, still on track…

It’s not just Gen. Allen saying the Afghan mission is on track. (Afghan mission “on track,” and even George Washington rolls his eyes.)

Now, a NATO General has reiterated the same thing just a few days ago.

But at least some officers are beginning to more urgently (and openly) speak the truth.

My view remains unchanged: Let’s get out of Afghanistan, like now.

So, what do you think?

My sales spiel: Want to read a crazy good, fast-moving, shoot-’em-up novel? Then go buy “Little Man, and the Dixon County War.” It’s gone as high as below 21,000 on the Amazon paid Kindle list — no small accomplishment — and the reviews say it rocks. Don’t have a Kindle?

Some words of advice worth hearing

Some motivation for you. Dream big. And keep moving.

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novels a success. I seriously couldn’t have done it with everyone’s support. I’m excited to say that Little Man, and the Dixon County War  has gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here). My second novel, Sold Outhas also done well, also, going as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.

The Afghan news just grew worse. Where’s the bottom?

Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai needs to come sell ads for my newspaper. This guy Karzai — this worthless scoundrel — knows no shame.

Now, the guy (who so often rips and disrespects our forces who are there serving his country) is literally demanding we commit to funding his troops well into the future. (See story.)

And the good news doesn’t stop there. Just a couple weeks after France decided to exit early, now Australia has announced the same intentions.

And in case we’d forgotten how over-stretched and -worked our troops are, we got another photo story this week involving U.S. troops and dead insurgents.

Wonder if Gen. Allen still thinks the mission’s on track? (Afghan mission “on track,” and even George Washington rolls his eyes)

All of this just further reinforces my position from a couple of months ago.
