Really, Really Time to Find the Exit in Afghanistan

By Fuzzyone

When this qualifies as good news, which seems to be the spin, you know it is time to get out. I mean seriously check this out:
Angry villagers stoned to death a local Taliban commander and his bodyguard in southern Afghanistan Sunday after the militants killed a 60-year-old man accused of aiding the government, Afghan officials said. It was a rare reversal of brutality aimed at the Taliban and, some Afghan officials believe, suggests a growing sense of security in an area where the insurgency has lost ground to NATO forces in the last two years.
So Americans are fighting and dying, not to mention spending billions, so that the people of Afghanistan can feel secure enough to stone one another. Fabulous.
